Kids Epipen carrier that won't hurt them

What matters the most is to help kids and teens find emergency medicine carriers that they will use.

Are parent buying #Epipen #carriers that could hurt their kids?

No one knows how difficult it is having to carry the large epi pen shots until they have to do so. When it comes to kids, the emotional daily challenges they have to face worrying about anaphylaxis #foodallergy is something that most parents can't really comprehend By time parents start noticing that their kids are been bully or made fun of because of their allergies some children have already exposed themselves to having a severe reaction. It gets even more difficult when you realize that carrying their epinephrine auto injectors is something they want to do but don't want anyone to know about it.

Do's and Dont's 

  • If you don't make it a rule and start teaching them that self carrying their epi's is a rule that can't be broken, they will not develop the habit to do so and as they get older it will be more difficult to do so.
  • If you make   them to wear a noticeable carrier like a fanny pack or a waist hanging pouch  they will eventually be bullied and made fun of.
  • If you buy them a nice printed looking pouch that looks more like a pencil case or a makeup bag, in case of an emergency it will be difficult for school nurses, coaches and first response emergency personnel to find them. 
  • If you believe that while they are in school not carrying their epi's on them is safe, think again. What happens during after school activities? When the school nurse goes out to lunch ans no epipens in the classrooms?
  • Many Sports packs suddenly got an allergy label and when used to carry auto injectors the plastic buckles could hurt  during typical kids games. Also, the epipens bounce and make a funny sound when you run. 
  • Are you sure your kid is carrying a waist pack that is fire retardant?  

The WaistPal is by far the  most convenient and comfortable epineprhine auto injector carrier for school age kids ages six to 19. 

  • Designed as an undergarment waist sling with no plastic buckles.
  • Two small tight pockets, one in front and another one on the back securely hold the auto injectors.
  • Made of high quality neoprene material that is fire retardant, water resistant and that helps keep maintain the temperature of the injectors.
  • Athletic cool design with prominently displayed medical alert symbol in color red let's others know quickly notice that they are carrying emergency medications. 

Kids and teens need to self carry their Epipen. No excuses. 

If you have a child with anaphylaxis allergies and you got a prescription for epineprhine auto injectors it means they need to self carry the auto injectors 24/7. Not having immediate access to epi's could hurt them.  Making them wear a fanny pack or a pouch with a huge sign that says ALLERGIC TO NUTS could expose them to bullying and unnecessary social inflicted risks.

Every time you buy them an outfit, make sure they have large pockets like cargo pants do, or find the necessary accessory to ensure they comply with the responsibility of self carrying their life saving epineprhine auto injectors.  Help your kids be ready to help themselves.

Trust your child and help them master this life long task.Given the proper training and tool, no one is more capable to ensure your child has immediate access to their epipens than themselves..
