Does your kiddo self-carry?

If you have a child or grandchild who has asthma, does he carry his inhaler and spacer?

How old was he when he started? What things did you run into?

And logistics: where does your kiddo keep his gear?

    Both my kids carry their own inhaler. My dd carries hers (and her epinephrine auto-injectors) in her purse and started when she was in 5th grade. DS carries his in his pocket. I think he started to self-carry in middle school. When he ran XC/Track, he carried it in a SpiBelt during practice and meets. We don't carry spacers – I know that's a bit controversial, but our doc is OK w/ just the inhaler.
