Do you have medical awareness stickers for your pa/na child's car seat? I had some on our last car seat but now that dd is in a booster, I dont. I made some myself but really dont know how or where on the booster (no back) to stick it. Just curious if you all have them on your car seats.

No stickers at all on our seats, but it's a good idea. He is usually wearing his medical bracelet.

Never had a sticker, like the idea though. DD always wears her medic alert bracelet and there is a medic alert window sticker on her door window. My friend attaches info to her kids car seats. Not for specific medical reasons- just standard name/number emergency contact info,Dr info incase of an accident and the adults are unable to communicate.

Kandomom, may I ask where you got your window sticker...I like that idea better than the car seat sticker [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/redface.gif[/img])

I always have our address names and phone numbers on the back of car seats. I have heard of people getting in a wreck and the baby being taken to hospital in car seat. Never can be too sure. Once I found out about my son's allergy I just put that information on the back of car seat as well.

Don't put stickers on a car seat.
My husband works in safety supplies. When it comes to products for safety (like construction helmets, fireman's helmets, and bike helmets) if a sticker is put on it - it is no longer guaranteed. There is something in glue that can weaken the plastics. Some kids bike helmets used to come with stickers - but the instructions actually said that only those stickers should be used.
I don't understand chemistry at all. But, you don't want to weaken the plastic of a car seat.

Hmmm. Maybe the solution is to tatoo our kids' foreheads with the relevant info...

I'm more in favor of those scrolling battery operated electronic signs one can strap to their chest....... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Debbie, my son told me that he's picked up a few patients that actually do have their pertinent information tattooed on their arms. (Not suggesting people tattoo their children - just commenting.)

was this self-inflicted? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/tongue.gif[/img] I can't imagine medical personnel (at least where I work) suggesting having such information tatooed on themselves. I mean, *wow* if I could [i]even[/i] find a tatoo parlor I trusted. But that might just be me and my own personal quirks.
I mean, all that aside, [i]what if information changes[/i]? I've not always had things diagnosed correctly............
do insurance companies cover this..........? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Wow. I thought I was making a joke. Little did I know I was actually being a trendsetter! :-)
