Children "body wear" help Epipen high costs

Finding and choosing an epinephrine auto injector carrier that kids will be willing to wear can be more than challenging. Unfortunately, many children will make their parents believe that they always have their epinephrine auto injectors with them.

Most children want to carry their Epipen's or AuviQ's,  but the minute they arrive at school or at a friends house wearing a fanny pack,  or a pouch that hooks to their belt,  they will take them off and will hide them in the first place they see. They simply don't want to stand out nor have to deal with the usual questions or comments triggered by most epi carriers. I can't remember how many times I have spoken to parents who said;  "My kid is very mature for his age...and he always keeps his Epipen's near him" .  Near him? that's what  I also thought until the day I saw my son putting the Epipen's in a "very safe place" a hidden place so that other kids wouldn't mess up with them.

Where are some of the places kids  hide their bags with the Epipen's? Behind bushes next to entrance doors,  under a bench, behind a garbage can, inside any drawer, under sofas and beds, even under bathroom and garage sinks. Unintentionally, by not carrying their epi's on them,  they are taking risks that are greater than they could comprehend at such young age.

The medical community frequently reports that the majority of patients who experienced an allergic anaphylactic  reaction had  trouble communicating their symptoms, felt confused. Carrying the Epipen's inside a piece of clothing comfortably strapped to their leg's or waist with a medical alert symbol helps other notice that you are carrying emergency medications.

WaistPal  unique design:
The WaistPal undergarment waist sling was designed to carry and conceal up to two epipens. It  is by far the best option for kids ages 5 and over. This waist concealed sling has details that no adult could have thought about, all thanks to a kid that decided to help his mom design a carrier that was comfortable to wear.  His main reason wasn't  because he really thought he needed to have the epi's strapped to his body,  but mainly because he really wanted his mom to stop  following him everywhere he went.  For over ten years, not even once, has he been outside his home without having the Epipen's on him.

Why is easier to self carry the Epipen's inside the  WaistPal? Because it was created to be worn as as an undergarment soft concealed sling. It has no plastic buckles, buttons, or metal pieces that could pinch or injured the skin. Unfortunately, many parents feel that getting the latest running belt or fanny pack is the "normal" thing to do, and forget that a kid with food allergies needs to wear an epineprhine carrier on them at all times. Kids will be kids and will often play rough, fall, or get pushed while playing with friends.

Why basketball, volleyball and soccer, and physical education uniforms don't use plastic buckles or any kind of hooks? To eliminate the risk of accidents.  Remember, a broken buckle while playing sports could be as dangerous as carrying  a knife, even if it is made out of plastic.

How Epipen high cost forcing kids to carry them

Will kids and teens feel awkward having to wear a fanny pack pouch and big medical alert signs that tells everyone they have some kind of food allergy.  

Yes they will, but better safe than sorry. As a parent or a friend, the best thing you can do for a child with food allergies is to help them develop the habit of self carrying the epinephrine auto injectors  at all times. Not inside the backpack but inside a "Body Wear" epineprhine carrier.  

The family that founded OmaxCare always tells the story of how finding a waist pack or pouch the men in the family would wear for more than few days was such an  impossible task, that they started manufacturing them.  The first one was the LegBuddy concealed leg holster, then the Waistpal undergarment waist sling with no buckles which is great for when you are playing sports or wearing shorts to school. 

Parents, please don't wait too long to start teaching your child about the importance of self carrying "the kit".  If you wait until they are teenagers it will be twice as difficult and will cause a lot of arguments that could affect even the strongest parent child relationship. If you pass the responsibility of carrying the life saving medications to the child as soon as they enter their school years, you will need to remind them often, and probably loose couple of auto-injectors, but as time goes by it just becomes a habit.  




Don't just carry Epipen's inside a bag


During an emergency bags can be difficult to find, and no matter how much you try, it is impossible to have them on your shoulder at all times.  Cargo pants are great, and an undergarment sling or a leg holster like the LegBuddy and WaistPal can help discreetly carry and conceal the auto injectors. Every person that has anaphylaxis food allergies needs to carry an epinephrine auto injector ON them at all times. Today there are  epicarriers available to do so. No more excuses! Self carry epinephrine.  

Make it a rule that can't be broken

Having to carry life saving epinephrine auto injectors is something no one likes to do and no one knows how difficult it is until you need to do so,  but it is one of the easiest tasks to learn about living with food allergy and anaphylaxis especially if your parents made it a rule that couldn't be broken while you where growing up.
