Those That Have A Medical Alert Braclet For Your Kid(s)

What have you bought?

My 2yo is going to get one , Ive found a sports band for small kids to wear. Its the smallest I can find.

We feel this will keep strangers from randomly handing her candy MAYBE and make people more aware in the family.

I recently bought a bracelet for my 16-month-old son when we found out he has a peanut allergy. I saw these when I ordered my own bracelet and I thought it was really smart:

The velcro is pretty sticky... it hasn't been too hard keeping it on his wrist! And I think it DOES help people recognize that he has a serious medical condition. The one piece of advice I would give you is to skip the permanent marker (to write on the insert). If you want one, just make a tiny strip yourself with the relevant information (name, birthday, your phone number, diagnosis, etc...) and get it laminated at Kinko's. The permanent marker wears off REALLY quickly.

We went to MedicAlert http://www.medicalert.org/FAI/FAI.aspx

I really feel a lot better with her having it on all the time. It never comes off & the reps there are very, very helpful. I highly recommend them!

I'm looking at this one:

Its small enough for her wrist and looks friendly for a 2 yo.

Any more suggestions or feedback? :)

My 8 and 4 year old girls and I each wear a bracelet from Fiddledeeids. We are really happy with them. I now make my own bands to hook onto the original i.d. tag so we have all different ones for holidays, etc. Makes me feel better. I do have to tell you, though - the youngest and I have each had our own medical emergencies and the bracelets were not even looked at (I had to point them out). They are looked at by friends and teachers, etc...just not medical team. I asked the ambulance crew about it and they just brushed it off saying that they don't usually check out jewelry (can you believe it??) We are a small rural area, maybe that is why...
