    The front has a little velcro chest strap, and the back, a sewn on handle Im guessing incase you need to grab the little one in a hurry. I have a pic of her wearing the pack, .. I think in the camping forum. Shes 3 and only 23 lbs, and it fits her great! I purchased for about $22.00. They make it in pink and purple too.

    Maybe a bracelet, but I tell you, Id almost have to stitch it on their clothes. They put everything in their mouth. the 3 yr old just tested high for lead. We had the house checked, and really nothing in her "area" that would cause it. I could always tattoo it on her.. Im KIDDING! Shes a good girl, I know she'll out grow it. Just cant do necklaces or anything like that, right now.

    I have a small pack like that for my four year old for his water bottles and he keeps a couple toys in it but, my 1 year old still doesn't quite grasp the concept of wearing a pack yet. I am working on it though. Thanks.

There are water proof bags that are not real expensive that you can store your families documents in...I would make sure you put stuff in your kids bags as well...names, address, other relatives...after seeing the little babies after katrina that was seperated from their moms I alwasy thought an imprinted dog tag pinned to them might be the way to go.
    Good points! I need to make sure all the kids are "labeled" !!! Good grief, I have a few of 'em! :)

    I like your idea for the dog tag. Could put their name and contact info on one and any med issues or blood type on another. Also cheap enough to make several sets to put in their BOB, sew a set in their jacket, lace a set in their shoe strings, etc
