In case of an emergency, do you have what you need? I don’t know about you, but I have been out several times with my children, and found myself in need of a band-aid. Guess what, I usually can not find one and some stores do not have first aid kits. The most memorable incident occurred at a department store. While we were shopping, my son walked into a glass table top, which happened to come up to his mouth. When he hit the table, it cut his mouth. I asked the associate near by if there was a first aid kit, and she sent me to customer service. I walked to customer service only to find out that there was no first aid kit.
Since that day, I have a list of things that are in my diaper bag at all times. Some of these items include band-aids, antibiotic cream, alcohol wipes, baby wipes, gauze pads, and burn relief cream. My little first aid kit has come in very handy. Now when I need something, there is no more digging around in the bottom of the bag, hoping to find something that will work. I have everything I need, together in one little bag.
Depending on the age of your children, you may want to include different items. If you have an infant you probably want to include some type of diaper rash cream. If your children are really accident prone, you may even want to include a “one time use” cold pack.
I find it best to be prepared. You never know when the next emergency will arise, and it is much easier to have all of your supplies ready and organized. There are first aid kits available for purchase, if you are not sure what to include in your kit.
