First Aid Kit
Posted 23 March 2011 - 08:10 AM
So I'm on a mission to create the ultimate First Aid Kit. I know I could buy one out there but I have the box already and have a fair idea of what to put in, but what are some items you'd make sure are always stocked up in yours? (if you've ever had emergencies for bubs what did you need?)

I've been wanting to make up a first aid kit for when bubs is here because right now we are lucky to find even a bandaid around the house.
Besides baby nurofen and panadol (which I know you can't give to them for a certain period of time but thought if I making up a kit I might as well add them in so they are there for when they can have them and need them) I have no idea what else to put in.
Will be watching with interest.

We had to buy one of those ear thermometers the other day - I accidentally snapped the armpit one!
They're exy too ($54 for the Amcal one we got) but the nurse said they're the best as they're the most accurate, the fastest and you can check their temp easily while they're sleeping

Various brands of antihistamines (about 6 boxes!)
Assorted lozenges for sore throats
Hayfever eye drops
Various antiseptic creams and ointments
Some anti-itch spray and creams for bites, rashes and stings and burns
Bandaids and bandages and gauzes
Different sizes of skin tape (the kind that holds non-adhesive bandages on)
fess little noses spray and aspirator
baby panadol and baby neurofen
Cough syrups (a couple different kinds for different types of coughs)
And a aloe plant outside.
Wow Looking at that list you'd think we're hypochondriacs! But nope, we're just well stocked We're ready for ANYTHING, just like the Boy Scouts motto

The biggest one has all the bandaids, bandages, gauze pads, antiseptic creams, deep heat etc in it.
The next one has specific medications (ie my pill that I was taking, the left over of different antibiotics, panadine forte) - so basically anything that requires a script.
The last box has generic medications such as panadol, heart burn tablets, hayfever tablets, degas etc in it.
I have wondered what to put in for the baby, but figured that panadol and nurofen would live in the fridge (correct me if I am wrong), and drew blanks on what else I would need

I just went to one of the supermarkets online and put in everything I have in mine plus more that mine needs - and it came to just under $250 First aid stuff is super expensive so I think stocking up slowly over your normal shops is the best option
