Just curious to hear others' perspectives

We are approaching the cusp of the weight recommendation to transition to Epis vs Jrs (weird little milestone, isn't it?).

Some days it seems imminent - as though if I skip a heartbeat, I should already have the yellow Epis. Other days it seems like maybe it was a good meal, wet hair and heavy shoes that brought us so close.

So - paranoid mom that I am - I actually want to have BOTH around
Still, I don't want to disrupt my DD's confidence in her epis OR worse yet, create confusion heaven forbid there is an emergency at school or some other time she is out of OUR care.

I am sure some of you have already passed this bridge and I would love to hear your advice on how you approached it (to help manage my tendency to over-think and over-analyse).

I'm feeling inclined to get a script, fill a few - have them in the house and maybe the school office while I wait for the appointment with our allergist

Please share :)

I say go ahead and get them filled! Treat it like the milestone that it is...your little one is growing up! :banana

Let her know that you have them ready to replace the old ones as soon as the Dr. says it's time. It's not like she's going to get smaller and preparing is part of the training that we give our children.

Congratulations on raising a healthy and thriving child on a restricted diet! It isn't an easy thing to do and many in our community are dealing with the weight gain issue so it really is a big deal!

:banana :happydance

We are getting close to the weight too, as the current set expires (we keep about 15 current pens in rotation) I will replace them with the regular Epis.
