Fully Stocked Home First Aid Kit, Are You Prepared for Those Scraped Knees?

When you are in the middle of trying to calm or aid your hurt and crying child is not the best time to find out that little Suzie Q just used the last band aid on her dolly last week, your cotton balls were used as an art project two weeks ago, your Q-tips were used for a science project, and as for the antibiotic cream there is just no telling what happen to it.

Have you ever been at this point where your child has hurt themselves in one way or another and you can’t find what you need to aid them?

This past week my son hit his head which caused a cut that needed our attention right away. It was at this point that my husband and I realized that we were not as fully prepared as we would have liked to have been.

I don’t think any parent wants to be in this situation.

Here are some items to help you get your home first aid kit ready when needed.

When putting a first aid kit together keep in mind what your family’s needs are so you can buy those important extra items particularly for them. Such as…

1)Do they have allergies, that might need certain medications?

2)Do they have any medical conditions such as diabetes or asthma that might require a little extra supplies that does not come in a first aid kit?

3)Is your first aid kit age appropriate? Supplies in your first aid kit may not be for young children or babies.
