Julie is a mom of two boys with food and drug allergies, so she understands the importance of communicating allergies and having that information readily available, should an emergency occur. That's why she created Kid-e Tag™.
Kid-e Tag™ sent us their Starter Kit, which includes a car seat tag/bag tag, key tag, shoe tag, and clear protective labels for back to protect writing.
We also received the Emergency Contact List - Refrigerator Magnet to try and use, as well.
We used the car seat tag/ bag tag for her backpack.
I've always put a tag on her backpack, especially since that's also where she carries her epi-pen. It's so great now to have our new Kid-e Tag™! It's been taking the abuse of my six year old for over three weeks now, and the protective label that's used over the writing is fantastic! It keeps all your personal info safe and intact on the tag.
It's big, red and definitely noticeable for someone to see in case of an emergency - whether on the bus or walking through the hallways at school.
Anytime her bag is on her back, I know that my info and her allergies are listed close by.
I ended up using the key tag for her lunch cooler. I wanted something to be on her lunch bag that is easily identifiable.
Even though they eat lunch in their classrooms at her school, it never hurts to have a tag with their name incase they lose it or leave it on the bus. Having her allergens and my contact info listed is comforting incase of a substitute or lunch helper, as an added reminder.
I am eager for her next field trip, or even when we travel as a family somewhere, for her to try out the shoe tag, as well. I am always worried when she's on a field trip, playing with friends, or anywhere out of my sight for five minutes ;) the "what if's" -- having a shoe tag is an excellent way to alert people of potential allergens in case of an emergency and who to contact, after dialing 911.
If you want to try Kid-e Tag™ products, I highly recommend them! I am in love with our tags and they are a great product for any family with allergies or special needs.
Kid-e Tag™ offers FREE SHIPPING from their online store too! Love that. Reasonably priced and made in the USA. Durable, waterproof, and one-of-a-kind!
