I can't imagine having her sit at a table with peanuts.
I think there is a push for epi pens to be carried on person--even laws in some states. Time matters and the trip to the nurses station to get the pen can be too much time.
Statistically the vast majority of kids who die of tree nut reactions (not sure about peanut) die after school exposure.
Can't she socialize with other children on the playground? Outside of school activities like girl scouts? Play dates on week-ends?
Thank you both for your opinions. Can I ask you a few questions?
Are your pa kids contact sensitive? At what age would you be comfortable with them sitting at a regular table?
mama1803, our school district only allows inhalers for asthma to be carried on the person, as it is "life saving." Duh, what is an epipen?
Are your kiddos wearing Medic Alert bracelets as well? DD just outgrew hers and we need to replace it. Just curious.
