My DD has never had a severe reaction. After reading posts here about others' reasons I decided to go for it. My original thought was that if we were ever in an accident or medical emergency, she may be given medication or food that she is allergic to. I also found that since she's never had a severe reactions others easily play down the risk, but with a medic alert they take it seriously.

My dd (4) puts hers on when she puts on her epibelt. She puts that on when she puts on her pants. We won't forget pants so we won't forget the other 2 either. Her wrist was raw with eczema and only got worse with the bracelet, but I wasn't willing to bend on daytime wear so I had to let it go for night. It works for us.
DD has never had a reaction where I used the epi. Knowing what I know now, I might have used it, but those times were before we "knew" she was pa.
DD doesn't wear the medic alert one, but a nice purple sportband one that we love. Our 4th try on finding one we like/is durable.
