Vital ID Review & Giveaway


Once your children are mobile, watch out! They are off for the big race and you must chase them around everywhere! Long gone are the days of sitting still on the floor playing with a toy; it's time to run room to room, around the store, and up and down the sidewalk! It's a fun, exciting, and exhausting time for all.

A few weeks ago, my 3-year-old and I went to the grocery store. Usually, he stays with me, walking or sitting in the cart. However, this time, he was right behind me and all of a sudden he disappeared. I was scared out of my mind and within 10 seconds I had the entire store looking for him. I still have no idea how it happened or how he got to the back corner of the store so quickly. Though you think it could never happen to you, it occurs in the blink of an eye. It's scary, isn't it?

Vital ID from Belly Charms was created for the purpose of keeping your little ones safe and to give parents a little more peace of mind. Vital ID is a wristband for children that velcros on and contains all of the child's information, from name and phone number, to address and allergies. If your little one runs off, rest assured that someone will be able to find and contact you very quickly.

Vital ID is also available as a sport ID wristband and a Medical Vital ID. The sport ID is equipped with reflective tape and contains all of your vital information in case of an accident. The ID cards inside the wristband are waterproof, too, so wear it at the beach or swimming pool.

My Thoughts

I was very excited to find Vital IDs from Belly Charms after Josiah got lost in the grocery store. Every time we go to a big event, to the beach, or to the fair, I always have that worry in the back of my mind. Vital ID is such a wonderful idea. I think they are especially great for younger, mobile babies and toddlers who can't yet speak very well or children with medical conditions. With the Vital ID, others can find out all of their information very quickly.

I didn't have to worry about Josiah keeping the band on his arm because Vital ID comes in many different colors. I let him pick out his wristband and, to my dismay, he picked the green camouflage. I wanted to make sure it was a color he liked so he would want to wear it and, sure enough, he not only likes wearing it, but asks to wear it! He thinks it's so cool. Yes, those are his own words!

I highly recommend Vital ID for any mobile children, from 1 year and up. Vital ID is also available as a sport wristband for children and adults. I know we watch our children closely, but all parents will experience losing their children in a store or in a public at least once. Accidents happen and they are always eye-opening. Be prepared!

I would like to have this for when we go to the zoo. My daughter gets distracted and runs from place to place!

I would love for when we take our family to Silver Dollar City Amusement Park. The children are always running in all directions, climbing and playing and riding rides. My son lost site of me once and immediately started crying and screaming. Had it been that he was truly lost, I would like peace of mind that someone could help bring him back to me!

I would love to have Vital ID because we travel a lot and take the kids a lot of places. It can be very busy with two kids and it would be nice to have peace of mind that my daughter (3) has the important info right on her.
