Hi Mamas! I am trying to figure out if I should have my son (allergies and epileptic) wear a medical ID. Do any of you do that with your kids? I don't want him to be stigmatized.
Would love your input

They have some really neat med alert bracelets now.You can also get a necklace he can tuck into his shirt or he can wear one on his ankle,then it would be less noticeable...Medics check your wrist,neck and ankle when responding to a call

My son has worn one since he was 3 (he is 7 now) and it has never been an issue. I get asked a lot why he has one, but he has never been made fun of for it.
