They're Here!

Cormac's Medic Alert bracelets came in the mail on Monday. I was excited and sad at the same time. I decided to put the traditional chain one on him first. We put him in his swing to put it on him. This way he couldn't run away! It wasn't as bad as I thought. He didn't really fight us at all. He did try to get it off right away, but then we started playing in the swing so he forgot about it for a bit. Throughout the rest of the day he would tug at it every once in a while but surprisingly no tantrums. It helped that Grandma and Grandpa were here. Cormac is obsessed with Grandpa's watch. So we called the bracelet a watch. He would look at his bracelet and then at Grandpa's and Grandma's watch, and smile. It was cute.

We decided to just leave it on all the time so he will get use to it. He really doesn't need it 24/7, but I don't want it to be an issue when he does need to wear it. Plus if we are ever in an accident he will have a way to be identified and emergency contacts can be notified. Just an added perk I guess.

The emblem on the chain bracelet is a bit big for my taste (well he's so little everything is big), but it doesn't seem to bother him. I tried the sports band bracelet on him today. I think he will be able to get that one off, so we will wait a bit until we have him wear that one.

So far so good! We are starting day 3 of Cormac wearing it, and it's like it's always been there. I'm glad we finally did it.



  1. Thank you for posting about this - I still need to order one for my little guy, and have been wondering how he will handle it. I'm glad that Cormac is doing well with it :)

  2. That's great that it doesn't bother him, I remember wishing I could super glue my son's on when he was little - and now that he's 15 he won't wear it, or the necklace at all. I keep threatening to have it tattooed on the back of his neck.

  3. LOL Leigh! A tattoo would do the job.

  4. My son (just turned age 6), was diagnosed with his peanut allergy at 18 months. I bought him the sports band (from American Medical ID), and also the Dogtag. He loves them both, and wears his dogtag pretty much with everything.
    Also, there is a new product on the market I ordered for my son for camp, field trips, etc. They are called "Safety Tats," and are essentially a tattoo that you have customized. THESE ARE AMAZING!!! You put them on his forearm...people notice them really quick, and they ask about his allergy all the time!

  5. Kristie I will have to look into that! Hum maybe I can start doing reviews...


I love hearing what you have to say!
