Does anyone have a suggestion for a PA alert bracelet for a 9mo old boy? Everything I have found has been to big or is metal.

I got these for my DS around when he was 9 months old and they work GREAT! When he gets older to where he isn't in my care 24/7 I will get him a MedicAlert bracelet. For now these work great for letting other people know. I got my DS the extra small and he is still wearing them and they come 3 to a pack.

Thank you so much MommyOfTwo...The bands are perfect for my little guy. He didn't even notice it was there.

I also want to thank you for posting this. I just joined the group as I just found out today about DS's allergy. He is 2 so this bracelet will be perfect for him. Just have to figure out which size then I can order him one tomorrow.

These bracelets are great! My 5 year old boy is ultra cool with the glow in the dark one. The lettering wears off after about 5 months, though, so buy extras. At about $5 each, that's easy to do!

Thanks for opening this thread. Our daughter still chews everything, she is 16 months old, and I was wondering how on earth we could get her to wear a bracelet!
