Mommy Alert! EpiPen Carrier

If your child has a severe food allergy, then you are probably all too familiar with the EpiPen. An EpiPen is an auto injector that administers epinephrine. Epinephrine is the definitive emergency treatment for severe allergic reactions.

My sister has to carry one wherever she goes for fear my niece will ingest a peanut or even touch one, causing her to have an anaphylactic reaction. There's one in her classroom, car, and at my mother's house. When I saw these EpiPen Pouches ($35), I told my sister she had to get one. They protect the EpiPen and make it easy to find in a mad rush. When your child is having trouble breathing, the last thing you need to worry about is fumbling around your purse for something that feels like a marker. Hopefully, you'll never have to use one!

Food allergies are a serious problem. The widesp[read severity , however, is questionable. February's Harper's magazine has a brief article/annotation on the subject entitled "Everyone's gone nuts: The exaggerated threat of food allergies" by Meredith Broussard. Available on line at: It's far from a definitive treatise on the topic, but it has made me decide to do some more research of my own.

Ha! Funny. I am allergic to peanuts and I want one. I wish it said "Princess Peanut" though.

Does anyone know why there seems to be such a rise on peanut allergies? My son always has one or two kids in his class that have these severe allergies :-(

"Does it protect the pen from temperature extremes?" I'd assume so, they're often recommended as a way to keep one in the glove compartment.

These are made out of neoprine (sp?) so they are robust against the, they're really well constructed. The zipper is super sturdy, but still easy for little hands!

What's the lining like on these? Does it protect the pen from temperature extremes?
