Thanks AnnaMarie, I got that error message too!
I've e-mailed the Lung Association's asthma connection to see what they recommend. Dd wore her EpiPen belt today.
I have been to many boards an haven't seen this discussed. I saw the Anatote that attaches to the belt but I don't want a lot of dangly pieces. I saw the holster but it didn't look very secure or sanitary as the mouth part of the puffer was somewhat exposed (do you know what these little kids get into? :P )

Susan, found something else that might be appropriate.

First I checked allergies, but under asthma I found this: "The versatile Trio Pac securely holds an asthma inhaler and Aero Chamber with an , Epipen®. (Chamber and inhaler not included)".

Hi,

I have puchased my Epi-pen pouches from All Star sales.
They are very reasonably priced. I have purchased a few. one for school, one for his hockey bag, and one I carry with me. (They come in single or double)

My son is in grade one and wears his constantly in school. (It has now become part of his uniform) They also have extra epi-pens in the office. I would not have it any other way.

As for the other children in the class. They did try to grab it once. (My son can be very quiet and shy but he can surprise us at times) Told the kid to "Stop it. It is not a toy and I may need it to save my life. If you try touching it again I will tell the teacher" and that was the end of it.
