Who is SensitiviTees?

SensitiviTees grew out of our experiences dealing with our son’s food allergies, and our concerns about how to deal with this issue as he entered school. When he started school we were very nervous about a teacher or teacher’s aide not remembering about our son’s allergies—after all, even our own family members forget! As moms we certainly care about our own son’s welfare; and we understand from our own first-hand experience how hard it can be sometimes for parents to get the word out and hope that everyone around your children understands as well. 

We decided there must be a solution to this dilemma—we knew we were not alone in this! Many concerned parents face this problem every day. We put our heads together and in July 2010 SensitiviTees was born.

As moms who care deeply about helping other people become more sensitive to our son’s allergies, we wanted to do everything possible to help him. With SensitiviTees we can also make sure that other people are sensitive to your child’s needs—with a little bit of lighthearted fun mixed in. 

After developing our line of allergy-related sensitivity messages, we soon realized that the "be sensitive" message was applicable to other areas of life, such as adoption and same-sex parenting, so we’ve added those designs to our SensitiviTee brand. 

We're excited and growing!  

We’d love to hear about your great ideas for our shirts, dresses, and infant clothing and accessories so contact us at sensitivitees@gmail.com with your suggestions. We are always looking for topics to help others be sensitive to anyone who has something special about them to share.
