Regarding the trainer - I ordered mine from Anaphylaxis Canada. But, apparently in the US if you order the epi-pen jr. dual pack (two pens together) it comes with a free trainer.

I would also suggest practicing with an expired epi-pen. (Adults not children). There is a slightly different feel to it.

We practice with the trainer on our legs - we practice with expired pens on fruit.

Re: Epi pen trainers - Thanks for the info on getting this! I know it will make our family and friends more comfortable with being 'around' Isaac. I have a background in animal medicine, so I'm more comfortable with injections than most people - even my husband is going to feel better equipped!

We just got our epi-pen trainer from anaphylaxis Canada too.... great product!! Now everyone (friends and family and babysitters) can see what it feels like to give it to our son if necessary... How much pressure to apply etc. My hubby and I have even done practice runs on each other.....
