How should I help my babysitter prepare for medical emergencies with my child?

Medical Needs and Concerns

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.
