    Going to Disney for 4th of JULY! Knowing how crazy it is at that time. I am very scared that our 19 mo old daughter will get lost. I was looking into the baby trackers and other safety things out there and anyone has used that just gives extra pc of mind

    Hi Jamie,

    You've come to the right mom!  I am a self-admitted wacko when it comes to keeping my kids safe in the parks.  I've used just about everything to identify them.  Some of the "tricks" we've found most helpful, have included:

    • Backpacks with "leashes".  I know a lot of parents don't like these, but I got two super cute "lion backpacks" with extra long "tails" that either my husband or I held onto when they weren't in strollers.  My kids loved them.
    • Stickers with their names and our cell phone numbers on them.  (I used blank mailing address labels that I wrote our emergency contact information on.)
    • Medical alert bracelets (you can get soft ones that velcro closed, and instead of medical information, put contact information inside.)
    • Tatoos - you can buy special tatoos that leave a space for you to write in cell phone information.
    • T-shirts - I had custom t-shirts made at zazzle.com, where I selected one of a number of Disney icons for the front, and on the back wrote, "If I'm lost, please call my mom or dad's cell phone, and the number"

    Obviously, keeping a watchful eye on your little one is the most important factor in ensuring that she stays with you.  However, some of these tricks have given me extra peace of mind!

    Have a wonderful vacation!
