How many epi pens do you carry and how?
I know there are various other threads that mention how people carry their epi pens. Since the responses seem to be scattered throughout, I was hoping to get people to respond in one thread. My questions: HOW MANY EPI PENS DO YOU CARRY AND WHAT IS THE MODE OF TRANSPORTATION? I currently carry one at all times but keep thinking I should carry two. My son's teacher had one all year but last week she asked for a second one (she said she'd feel more comfortable having more than 20 minutes. I was pleased she asked). I usually carry the epi pen in my son's small diaper bag in the plastic tube it comes in. I recently put one in a toothbrush holder but someone said it's not secure that way. I know there are products out there - epimate, zoni, etc. and I'm thinking maybe it's time to purchase one of them. How about you? How many epi's do you carry and how?
