I loved the advice on how to build a family first aid kit that our friends at Children’s Physician’s Medical Group recently shared. Over the years I have found that the only way to reduce worry and stress about keeping my kids safe is to empower myself with preparedness.
I have learned how to turn off the gas in our home in case of fire. We have secured bookshelves and mirrors to the walls in case of earthquakes. I have at least 3 days worth of food and water stored in case of a variety of emergencies that could make it hard to get groceries.
A simple first step to peace of mind is building your first aid kit. The essentials include hydrogen peroxide, gauze pads, bandages, triple antibiotic ointment, hydrocortisone cream, Benadryl, Motrin, Tylenol, safety pins, q-tips, scissors, a thermometer, ace bandage and a finger splint. It’s important to check expiration dates and replenish and replace when necessary.
