I’ve been a mom for 6(!) years now and, believe it or not, I don’t have a first aid kit in my car – much to my mom’s dismay ?. But after Quinn had an allergic reaction a few months ago – to handsoap at a restaurant, no less, I decided it was time to put together a first aid kit for my bag… if there’s one thing my kids are good at, it’s hurting themselves – and, truthfully, if there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s not being 100% prepared for it ??♀️??♀️.
So I figured with all the sickness showing up (aka back-to-school), soccer season starting, and a 19-month-old who thinks she’s half mountain goat, it was time to put together a little portable first aid kit *just in case*.
I have my first aid kit for kids packed with all the standard safety essentials plus a really cool product I think every parent needs on-hand… Pink Eye Relief. The Relief Products makes Pink Eye Relief, an eye drop solution that’s homeopathic and provides temporary relief for the redness, burning, watering, inflammation, the sensation of grittiness, and overnight crusting in the eyes that comes from pink eye. Basically helps with alllll the grossness and discomfort that pink eye brings.
While you should definitely hit the doctor when pink eye rears its ugly head, Pink Eye Relief is so great to have on-hand when the crustiness and tell-tale redness show up when the doctor’s office is closed or if you’re traveling. Tossing it in your portable first aid kit is a no-brainer!
Here’s what I included in my DIY first aid kit for kids:
- Instant ice packs – these don’t have to be frozen ahead of time, you just crack them and they’re cold
- Portable scissors
- Spray Neosporin – Pro Tip: get the spray… my kids would rather lose a limb than have me dab any ointment on a bite or boo-boo
- Chewable Acetaminophen
- Gauze pads
- Alcohol wipes
- A bag or box for all your first aid goodies
- Adhesive fabric bandage
- PinkEye Relief®
- Adhesive bandaids
- Chewable allergy medication
- Itch Relief Spray
- Medical Tape
- Wet wipes
gather all your first aid supplies & toss them into a bag or box and bring it EVERYWHERE!
