Seems like every time I turn around, we have an injury and I am completely ill-prepared. My big eye-opener was when we were at the ball field recently and my 6-year-old daughter got stung by a bee. I tend to be an under-reactor when it comes to medical issues, so I was perfectly content just putting ice on it. Maybe that was because I can’t even keep band-aids in my car because my kids use them as stickers! Lucky for me one of my Smarty friends sprinted to her car and came back with Benadryl cream (which I’m embarrassed to admit that I didn’t even know existed!) and some baking soda to neutralize the sting. Seriously, who keeps a spare box of baking soda in her car on any given day?!
So I decided to change my ways and invest in a First Aid Kit for my car. I found this one and knew it was the perfect Smarty solution – the Medibag, Medibuddy and Diaper Bag Buddy First Aid Kits for Kids. These fabulous portable first aid kits include everything you need to soothe minor injuries on the go. They even have crayon-shaped bandages and smiley stickers to wipe those tears away. The Medibuddy is smaller than the Medibag and is intended for your car while the Diaper Bag Buddy is perfect for every new mom to stash in her bag. I didn’t mess around and bought the whole kit and caboodle in the Medibag.
Now I just need to get a box of Arm & Hammer and I’ll be all set. Do you have any first aid tips to share? Do tell!
I *think* that I recently saw the yellow smaller kit in Target… will have to look for the bigger kit there, too!
you can make one of you own for probably cheaper than you can buy a made one and then you can make it specific for your family. I took an old diaper wipe box and filled it with bandaids, antibiotic cream, cotton pads and stuff to wash off a cut, tape, larger bandage pads, benadryl liquid and a syringe, and tweesers. This all fits under the the drivers seat in my can so it is out of the way and the kids dont get into it. you can look at the contents of the ones in the stores and see what they have in them and then copy or add to it.
