Medical ID bracelets are a great way to help keep your food allergic child safe. It alerts others that he/she has a medical condition and will also stimulate conversation to raise awareness.
It has been a challenge to find a bracelet that my 8 year old son will wear. He's not much for jewelry, but he does like sports-type bracelets and necklaces.
I came across Hope Paige which offers a wide variety of medical ID jewelry. I saw this bracelet, and I instantly knew my son would love it. It is sporty, comfortable, and lightweight.
Hope Paige also offers free, customizable engraving. While Bubs has a long list of foods we are avoiding, there are three foods that he is anaphylactic allergic to, including milk, eggs, and peanuts. These are the life-threatening foods that others need to be aware of. I chose to have those three foods engraved, along with "I carry Epi" so others would know how to help. In the event of an emergency, a medical ID bracelet will quickly let others know what the possible problem could be. This leads to proper intervention and potentially preventing mistakes in treatment. So important to have, especially when parents are not around.
This style of bracelet has an easy clip that Bubs can manage himself. One less thing for me to do!
The downside to this style of bracelet is that it is not adjustable. Be sure to measure your child's wrist before ordering to ensure a proper fit.
Hope Paige offers hundreds of styles for men, women, boys, and girls. You could spend hours trying to decide which piece of jewelry best suits you. I certainly had trouble deciding. And I may need to order more in the future so the kids have a selection to choose from.
