Boo-boo bag to the rescue

Sometimes it only takes a kiss to make it all better. But other times a medical supply kit comes in handy. Learn how easy it is to make your own.

Whether you are going on a family vacation or just to the playground, it's a good idea to pack a first-aid kit. If you have little ones, you’re going to need it sooner or later.

The organizational experts over at momAgenda suggest you make your own medical supply kit in a plastic zip bag and just keep it in your car. That way it will always be there when you need it.

Here's what to include in the bag:

  • Band-aids
  • Pain relievers (Children's TYLENOL or MOTRIN and some Advil for Mom)
  • Children's Benadryl (in case of an allergic reaction)
  • Neosporin (or other anti-bacterial cream)
  • Aloe (in case of a sunburn)
  • Thermometer

With a bag full of these supplies, you should be covered in the event of a mishap. But as we moms know, sometimes it just takes a kiss or a hug from mom or dad.

    Rated 0 out of 5 by Yes, a must have in your purse, diaper bag, or both. I use a small make-up bag and I have cartoon character band-aids, regular band-aids in a few assorted sizes, a miniature tube of antibiotic ointment, a few alcohol pads, q-tips for applying the antibiotic ointment, children's acetaminophen, children's Motrin, Benadryl, a medicine dispenser, tweezers, and a sample of aloe gel that came with my son's sunscreen. You never know what will happen, especially with boys running around full of energy :) November 20, 2014

    Rated 0 out of 5 by I like the addition of pain relievers for mom. We tend to forget about ourselves! There have been so many times when I've been out and had to stop for pain medicine. April 23, 2014
