When you have a baby you also have the potential for emergency situations. To make sure you can handle anything, grab two plastic boxes (waterproof) and stock each with the following essentials. After you stock up, put one of these boxes in your car and keep the other at home. Make sure you update too. It's no good to have expired meds and empty bandage boxes in your first aid kit. I'd go through each box about twice a year. Supplies to have on hand in your first aid box:
  • Bandages of varying sizes - make sure some are tiny for baby-sized cuts
  • Gauze pads
  • First aid tape
  • A pair of tweezers - fine gauge is best
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Some hand wipes in packages - good for cleaning off a cut in a pinch
  • Reusable gel packs - both cold and warm
  • First aid booklet - one that covers how to do CPR - you can get one of these from your local red cross
Medicine you need in your first aid kit boxes:
  • Hydrocortisone cream
  • Antibiotic cream
  • Acetaminophen - both for baby and adult
  • Ibuprofen - both baby and adult
  • Aspirin - ONLY for adults - babies CANNOT have aspirin
  • Antihistamine
