The wristband/bracelet is what I will concentrate on today.
The orange. It calls attention.
The bracelet. It’s trendy.
The stretchy band. It’s comfortable.
Lil’ Buddy calls it his watch.
I think calling it a watch is appropriate since it helps us and others ‘watch out’ for him. Same for big sister. I had been on the look out for an allergy alert bracelet for a while. When the link to Allergy Apparel’s Trump Food Allergy Wristband was posted on the Sunbutter blog, I clicked over to check them out. I am so pleased with what I found!
The wonderful thing about these bracelets is you can customize them. Each wristband comes with a set of picture charms representative of each of the common allergens: peanut, tree nut, shellfish, wheat, egg, dairy and soy. So we can customize my daughter’s wristband for tree nut and peanut. My son’s is all set up with the egg, peanut and tree nut charms.
The Trump Allergy Alert Wristband is just one of the unique products offered by Allergy Apparel. Be sure to click over and check them out! Making allergy friendly living easy for us.
