pI'm trying to figure out the best way for my husband and I to tote around our daughter's Epipens and Benedryl. We will each need to carry two Epipens and one Benedryl container. I ordered one Epimate from FAN and the Epimate Waist Pack. I haven't received it yet, and I'm wondering what it will be like and whether I should have bought something else since it won't hold the Benedryl. What is an Allerpack? Someone mentioned that on another thread. How do other people do it. I want something compact and easy to carry./p

I bought a sunglass case thats nylon, it is perfect for 3 Epi's or 2 epis and I put some bendryl in a small (sample size) bottle that I had for liquid tylenol...This has been perfect for me to carry in my purse, it's compact and also something I can put my hands on fast AND it only cost $1.00!!! Another plus is I bought a red colored one, so it's bright, and it has a belt clip on it, so I can always clip it on my pants or something if needed.

I bought 2 red Medic Alert bags. I use one for 2 Epi Pens and Benadryl and the other for an areochamber and inhaler. Easy to clip around your waist.

Wow - the sunglass case idea is great. Where do you get Medic Alert bags? Meanwhile, I've already wasted $25 on a Epimate and Epimate belt! I wonder if I can return them. Keep the ideas coming please!

Right now, I just carry it in the diaper bag (my youngest is potty training still). Since I have a baby due in mid-November, I'll probably just continue to carry both in the diaper bag until the last one potty trains.
