I follow the Nut free mom (blog) (facebook) and she has a wonderful post today regarding crisis and being "ready" with your allergic child. It is a great post and I think it's a wonderful idea for those of us with kids that have allergies to be prepared, just in case. Basically the idea is to have a bag ready to go that is full of safe foods, antibacterial wipes, epi pens, benadryl, etc. I will also try to post a link to her blog.....she is pretty awesome at explaining things and such...so if you haven't heard of her or seen the blog-check it out!
We pretty much do that but I don't always have snacks in there...just his hydroxizine (basically benadryl without dye as he is allergic to dye and found out during the recall), tylenol, and epipens. The snack and drink thing is a really good idea!
That is a great idea, thanks for the link. I actually just finished doing that. I have snacks, Benadryl, and an Allergy Alert card with emergency contact info in her backpack. You can never be too prepared.

I've been super paranoid lately with my son's allergies.. Dr. has not prescribed me a Epi-Pen Jr. yet. He told me to wait until his next appointment in a month. I think it's because A.J is to small for the Epi-Pen Jr.. A.j is only 21 lbs.. But that will be one thing I want in our bag..
