Disclaimer: I received free products from Blue Bear Aware for review purposes. The thoughts and opinions below are my own.
Blue Bear Aware is a company that specializes in items that make life easier for families with food allergies. They have all sorts of things, from medicine pouches to clothing to stickers to books, etc. I want all of it, of course, because anything that will make life easier when it comes to Eva’s allergies is welcome in this house!
Today, Eva is modeling the “Don’t Horse Around, Nuts Ain’t for Me” Fitted Long Sleeve Tee and the “Don’t Feed This Princess” Long Sleeve Fitted T-Shirt. I love the idea of allergy alert shirts because they’re an easy way to bring Eva’s allergies to people attention, especially in situations where we’re around people who don’t know her (i.e. parties where someone might hand her a cookie or a playground where someone might see her having a reaction and not know why). Plus, they’re so cute!
Blue Bear Aware also sent us some allergy alert labels that are weatherproof and dishwasher safe and a Kids’ SPIbelt, which is like a super secret fanny pack that discreetly holds medication. Eva is actually wearing it above and it’s holding her inhaler, but it’s so discreet you can’t even tell that it’s there!
I’ll be featuring these two products in upcoming posts to show you more about how they make life easier and I’m especially excited about the belt. The SPIbelt expands to hold EpiPens and Auvi-Q injectors, which is amazing because it’s critical that Eva gets an epinephrine injection within 5 minutes of having an allergic reaction. Longer than that and it’s much harder to treat her! It’s a big relief to know that she’ll be able to carry and manage her own meds before I know it so we don’t have to depend on always having the big diaper bag around. One less thing!
Thanks, Blue Bear Aware!
