Peace of mind with iD Me wristbands - #Review and #competition

Trips and days out can be going as planned until you turn around and your child is temporarily out of sight. There will follow a frantic few moments where your mind races and your heart beats so loudly you think everyone can hear it whilst your child is sought.

With a very young or SN child, there is the added complication that they may not be able to articulate their/your details. Anxieties may overtake surrounded by strangers/in an unfamiliar place or they may be non-verbal.

This is where an iD wristband would be of an immense benefit.

Here’s some details from their website http://www.idme.ie/index.php?PHPSESSID=da1a007565495732d2671a7779f0c584 :

Our Velcro Child ID Wristbands are
Great for any outing where your child might get separated from you. Whether it’s a trip to the beach, on holiday, a birthday party, school tour or just a visit to the shops, your child will have potentially life saving information at hand.

iDME wristbands for kids come in colours Red, Yellow, Blue, Pink, and Blue and Green Camoflage – and target ages 3 – 9yrs with a wrist circumference of up to 6". Included in the packaging are two 3-fold waterproof inserts (1 spare) that tuck neatly away out of sight under the velcro strap and store any emergency information needed. The insert card is made from a special material that is tear proof, you can also write your information with a Bic ballpoint pen which makes the writing water resistant but for best waterproof results use a fine tipped permanent marker.

We were sent a pink and blue wristband for T and D to trial out and we also have a green camouflage wristband to give away to one reader.

How the wristband works:

Write your details and any relevant medical information on one of the inserts provided (two supplied). It’s recommended that a permanent marker is used.

Fold over the insert and place into the Velcro tab on the wristband.

The wristband is now complete with the relevant contact details and medical information and ready to be worn.

D is wearing the child-sized wristband in the above photo and the Velcro makes it adjustable and secure.

The wristbands retail at €12.99 with free shipping, customisation and larger sizes are also options.

As mentioned above, I have one green camoflage wristband to give away.

Personally I’d use the wristband when taking M to the busy city – she has her buggy but sometimes she likes to walk about when it’s not too busy, and then she can disappear in the blink of an eye. It seems impossible to keep hold of her hand.

I’d also make sure she wore it if going on a school trip as I think it would greatly reduce my anxiety! School are great but an autism mum always appears to worry more than most.

Hi,
I read your review of the iDME wristbands and agree they are very good; however
I have upgraded my sons with a new insert from cerql.co.uk which has a QR code.
I can now include loads more information plus a photo of me and his dad it can
also be updated with info/photo without replacing the card. Great value £1.99
for 2. Hope this is of interest, regards Luana UK
