EpiPens for Toddlers
Talk to me about EpiPens for toddlers. Did you keep one in the diaper bag? I'm afraid another kid might get into it. Leave one at daycare and keep the other at home?

The daycare may have a policy on that. They probably need to have it in a separate medication place where all staff know it is located (obviously if it's a home daycare, then licensing rules are different and the diaper bag might be the preferred place). Other than that, I know my friend keeps one in the diaper bag, one at home and one at daycare.

I carried one in the diaper bag for a kid I babysat. It wasn't the sort of thing another kid could easily get into, and you really have to jab it as hard as possible to get the needle poke.
