It's actually even weirder then that! But you are getting close with the duct tape. But I think it is the strangest idea I have ever come up with (and that's saying something!). I am just working out all the formalities, so I don't want to tell everything just yet, give me a week or two. But I am not making a product that will be for sale, and I don't want to compete with any of the excellent products available, in fact I will promote them (with their permission). At this point it involves a series of workshops for kids with chronic health issues. At this point I am calling it "The Lemonade Worshops", cos when life hands you a lemon...

E-belts are available at the Rexall in Manotick (sp?) and the EpiKozy is available at the Here We Grow Again in Barrhaven too.

First post time...

I may as well make it potentially productive so here goes:

Anyone happen to stumble on a case/holder that has the manufacturing materials and products listed? I'm having a few issues with possibly ordering something that is going to potentially contain materials I can't have. Especially with the move toward new fabrics and fibres.

BTW:

Hi,

My name is Shelley and I am allergic (in the true sense of the word) to Corn, and corn derived products.

:lol: I do that often. It's usually a long time coming back if at all.

It was one of those "if anyone had/has noticed" things.

I was looking at Mountain Equipment Co-Op online and I saw this Epi-Pen carrier:
http://www.mec.ca/Products/product_deta ... 2383605619

I really like that it can be attached to any belt so, if it is sturdy enough, it could be transfered to a larger belt when the child outgrows the smaller belt.

What do you think?

It's very similar to the one I carry myself. I'm not sure if the one you linked to carry's one or two epi-pens though.

As for a child -- I still think the e-belt is the best. I wouldn't want my child flying into the playscape with an epi-pen in a nylon case around his waist.

But, by teen age -- that one looks similar to mine, but I think I paid more.

I think as a parent who wants to carry one, it might be useful. It looks to me as if it only carries one though.

Definitely, if you don't need to carry a purse or fanny pack, a carrier like that would be better.

I carry my own in it -- but I guess it would also be good for a parent.
