I love my son's new medical ID bracelet. It is so cute! He is 11 months old and very tiny. It fits his wrist! BUT I am keeping it on his ankle for now. He is like a puppy trying to get his new collar off. I got the solar systlem jelly band and another blue band for variety. The engraved slide is very nice, classy. The front has the medical symbol plus "severe peanut allergy" and the back says "Anaphylaxis , Carries Epipen, call 911 and his name" I am VERY thrilled with my choice to buy that particular bracelet.

Thanks for the link. It's time for a new bracelet for my 13 year old. I will let him pick it out this time!
Have a blessed day,
Bridget

Fo any Canadians with school aged children, Medical Alert Canada has a program called NO Child Without. You get a free bracelet/membership if your school principal sighs you up, and it's no cost to the school, it's all corporate sponsorship.

We had one of these --- loved it, but the words scratched off in less than a year. For the price, I wasn't really impressed, but the bracelet was cute and dd loved the changable bands.

I will be pretty disappointed if the engraving comes off in a year! For the price of engraving it better last longer. Did he keep it on always? Bath with it? etc? I planned to keep it on him in the bath- but will take it off if I have to preserve it.

My son wore his N-Styleid braclet for at least 4 years and the slide DID NOT lose the engraving! We did have a different band (black that was nylon). He did wear it for everything, except bathing.
He only stopped using the braclet when we had to add a latex sensitivity (and at age 9 he asked for a medic alert type necklace).
However, having the "braclet" on your sons leg may cause more wear and tear - ie: pants legs rubbing, playing on various surfaces, jumping and falling,etc.
I just wanted you to know I agree that N-Styleid makes good products.

DD's wore off in less than a year and we took it off at home. It didn't really "wear off," I should say --- it got too scratched to be able to read the words. 3 year olds are rough on them!
We got one from a different website that has color in the indentions in the engraving. I think it will hold up better.

Thanks for letting me know about how well yours held up. I'd prefer it on his wrist and may move it there soon. I do still love it. I really like how the slide looks and the engraving font is very nice.
