Many parents think that it isn't necessary to obtain a child id kit until their child is of school age. Because their child will be away from them every weekday, they reason that this is when the necessity of a kit becomes important.
Contrary to popular belief, a child identification kit should be created as soon as your child is born. If the unthinkable should happen, such as your child becoming kidnapped, you would have immediate access to pertinent identification information with a child id kit. As your child grows, you will need to change out the photographs in the child id kit so that you always have a current picture on hand. Fingerprints and DNA samples, however, will not change and are very important in identifying your child.
