I'm planning to get my son a medical ID bracelet indicating his peanut allergy. The style I am interested in has engraving on front and back - suggestions on what to write? I know it will say Peanut Allergy on front. But what is most important on back?

What does yours say?

Thanks in advance.

Here is what I have on my 20 month and 3 1/2 year old son's medic alert braclets. NOTE: It was a struggle to get the wording the way I wanted it but they were able to accomodate.
I would recommend search the other postings on the discussion boards to see what other's have used.
Life Threatening
Peanut Allergy
Needs Epipen Jr.

My DD's has "life threatening food allergies. Do not feed". That way if she gets more allergies, or outgrows some, I don't have to change the bracelet.

I just ordered my 3yo a medic alert bracelet on the front it has:
allergic to:
one the back it has
give epipen jr
call 911
Home phone #
allergists name
allergist phone #
I tried to include as much info as possible for now since he is so young and would not be able to communicate most of this info his self if needed. It was hard to find one that this much info would fit on, but it tured out pretty well.
