You may never forget your child's sensitivities and allergies but that doesn't mean other people won't. Whenever a new person such as a summer babysitter cares for your child make sure you let them know about your child's medical needs. If your child has any allergies let your babysitter know verbally and keep a written document containing this information posted in a highly visible place such as the refrigerator. Also include emergency numbers and information on how to deal with an allergic reaction if your child is exposed.
