Should my 4 year old carry his own epi-pen while at school?
My pn/tn allergic 4 year old son will be starting junior kindergarten in September. I have been looking at all sorts of carrying devices for epi-pens online but now I'm wondering if he is still too young and whether he should be carrying one at all. Of course, his teacher would have access to at least 2 or three epi-pens (one in office, one in backpack, one with teacher) so should I add a fourth along with a new carrying device/belt?
Just wondering what other parents of young children are doing.
