Yup. Caitlin.
Bad idea.
Havent forced/pressed the issue.
We HAVE one though. When the time comes, she'll wear it. We're just 'not there' yet.
We should be. We're bad parents [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

just got ALL my kids one...so now the 1yr old has one(for milk and eggs), 3yr old has one(for milk and eggs...also mentioned beef, pork and soy) 6yr old has one(for peanut/tree nut, eggs and asthma) and 8yr old has one(for asthma).....
my youngest 2 didn't have one prior to 2 weeks ago...which was dumb of me. If I were in an accident and unable to speak/communicate or hurt seriously, I woudln't want the hospital/fire dept/police offering them cups/bottles of MILK!!!! So I finally got them and they wear them!

Sidney-8 (beef and chocolate, grasses, molds, weeds, guinea pig & asthma)

My ds wore his from age 4.5 through kindergarden and never took it off. then it was a battle. I make him wear it when we are out of town, travel on airplane, during camp and we usually get through one month of school with him wearing it.
He is back to wearing it pretty regularly he is now 9. He has 3 different ones...one sports, one neon orange, one another color. Now he's asking for a metal one.
I told him no more until he shows responsibility in wearing it daily.

My 7YO DD has never worn one. Her Dr. didn't think it was really necessary. But I am going to get her one this summer for 2 reasons: she's added a latex allergy (likely to be a problem if emergency med help of any kind is needed), and we're moving to a new school district that hasn't dealt with the allergy as much.

We got one for the same reason mentioned above. DS is only one, if we were in an accident and couldn't tell emergency personnel about his PA, the bracelet would.
He wears it whenever we leave the house.

My 22 year old son has worn his medic alert since he was 5. He refuses to take it off. It has become part of him like the epi pens strapped to his belt loop. He knows the consequences.
If your three year old is with you or enlightened adults all the time then she's fine. Once she is out in the world without you then she needs it.

My 4 yr old DD wears one, never takes it off.
swims with it, bathes, plays, sleeps goes to preschool, (she just started) a great one- just opened in a new building and sent out a note that the new building is peanut free, yeah.
anyway she has two, both metal but one the emblem is pink, the other-purple.
the only time they come off is to change one to the other....
She likes them has had them for 1 1/2 years...
