We are almost on the road! As we embark on our second LPA National Conference in San Diego, CA, I am measuring, weighing and tagging all of our luggage. I have a whole chart in fact!
Thankfully, all of our luggage meets the standards- so I gingerly pack everything in, hoping to not hit the dreaded 50 pound weight limit in just one checked bag for the three of us. Wish me luck!
It’s pretty awesome that I was also given the opportunity to review a name tag of my choosing from TagUrIt, inc. located in Costa Mesa, CA. For me, although their website has some of the coolest name tag options I’ve ever seen, it was a no-brainer. I chose a custom emergency tag to attach to Addie’s backpack.
While her bag holds very little (crayons, paper, her headphones, a water bottle, and 2 diapers), it’s something that she holds tight- so I know it will always be with her. With that in mind- this is the place that any emergency info needs to be. That information for us includes both my number and Dave’s, as well as her geneticist’s information (as he is our team leader in her care), her diagnosis, age, and (duh) name. Crazy enough- all the info we wanted fit on the tag, along with a picture of her sweet face!
I attached it to her backpack and feel so much better about knowing that in an emergency, her vital info is available- whether she is with us or not. Also on her bags are the typical travel tags with our address info, of course, but the peace of mind having an In Case of Emergency tag brings is invaluable.
I.C.E. tags are a necessity for all kids as any information can go on them- from the basic name, age, and contact to the true emergency information, like allergies, insulin dependence, or medical diagnosis. And… the best part is the tag is movable! Coming printed on a great thick plastic, each card also comes with a plastic case with sticky tabs, to put in a permanent place OR you can use the clear strap and put in on one bag today and another tomorrow (you could even attach the tag to a zipper!). For me, knowing that this tag can go to one place or another means that as Addie grows, her I.C.E. tag can follow her- peace of mind that grows with my baby! I love it!
Somethings we don’t want to think about… for me, it’s an emergency, but because I know they happen, being prepared is my best defense. Grab your own TagUrIt for yourself and your loved ones for both travel and daily use, and follow TagUrIt on Facebook and Twitter for all their new product releases!
