Today’s post is an important topic. It’s about child safety. I imagine we’ve all had that moment where our child was “right there” and the next moment they disappeared in the store, or during another public outing. Your heart sinks into your stomach, your thoughts start to spin, and you begin frantically calling out for your child. Luckily most moments end with a happy ending, however there are other situations that sadly do not.
A child going missing in public can be one of the scariest moments of your life. That’s why it’s important for us as parents to teach our children about safety. With today’s world turning to technology more and more, I’m excited to share this latest product with all of you. Buddy Tag is a tracking bracelet for your children. It’s offered in a variety of colors and fabrics so your child can always feel comfortable, while being safe and secure.

Having a missing child can be a nightmare! With Buddy Tag’s features, you can locate your child within seconds of them disappearing from your presence. The Buddy Tag app is free to download and can easily be paired with your child’s wristband. Once activated you can add your email address for additional alerts, including an email warning with your child’s last coordinates. This was especially helpful for me earlier this week when J went beyond our yard without asking permission. My phone began sounding with an alert warning followed by an email seconds later with the coordinates and google map link to the exact location he was last seen at.
Within the app you can change the alarm sound with a few different choices. When pairing your child’s wristband you can add their name to your device if you have more than one child with a wristband. I also like the panic button feature which is located on the top of the band. This allows a child to press the button whenever they feel uncomfortable whether in private or in public. This sounds an alarm on the phone immediately so you can take action.
A new feature that I find extremely valuable is the water safety feature. If your child were to fall into water and not know how to swim, within 10 seconds of being submerged under water an alarm sounds on your phone. Every second matters in moments like that!
The band comes with a unique locking system so it’s not easily removed by your child or someone else. The locking method on the band takes a bit of getting used to, but since it’s waterproof there’s not many reasons to remove the band that often. My boys shower and bathe with their bands on without any issue. Typically when inside the home I unpair the devices to save on battery life as well.
Whether your child is in a public place like the park or playground, you can feel secure knowing your child is safe with Buddy Tag. I highly recommend this child safety device to all parents of young children. It can be a real life saver!
Buddy Tag is available in silicone, disposable, terry cloth and velcro wristband options. Along with an array of color choices. You can purchase products at Bed Bath & Beyond, Buy Buy Baby, boutique stores and online at mybuddytag.com and amazon.com.
