How to Prepare Your Child’s Medicine Cabinet

Keeping a full medicine cabinet is a must after you’ve become a parent. Not only do children get sick, they also experience a lot of scrapes and cuts and nicks and bruises.

When you have a full medicine cabinet you can be sure that you have exactly what you need to soothe your little ones woes. Don’t worry.

Most of the items you should keep inside of your medicine cabinet aren’t for illness or disease, but instead all of the safety essential items that you’ll need for those bug bites, bike falls and other injuries.

Some of those items include:

  • Band-Aids
  • Antibiotic Ointment
  • Tweezers
  • Gauze
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Peroxide
  • Calamine Lotion
  • Ice Packs

These items will help you tend to an assortment of problems, from bee stings to sprains and more.

Inside of the medicine cabinet should be a bottle of acetaminophen and a bottom of ibuprofen. These two pain relievers are commonly used to treat many of baby’s ailments and pains.

You’ll use it for fevers and colds, immunizations and allergies. For those illnesses that seem to bring your little one down, have a bottle of cough syrup on hand.

A digital thermometer is something else to keep inside of your medicine cabinet. These thermometers are very easy to read and can help you detect a fever, and its severity, in no time at all.

Age appropriate medications should also be selected for your medicine cabinet. For example, if you have a baby in the home, having a teething medication on hand is a good idea that can solve many late night crises.

A tube of diaper rash cream is also an item that you do not want to run out of, so consider keeping a tube on hand in the medicine cabinet.

Your medicine cabinet should always have repellent spray. Kids love to play outside, but the summer months mean mosquitoes, ticks and an assortment of other bugs that can bite your little one if they’re not protected.

Always keep medications far out of the reach of your baby or child. It is always best if you can keep these items inside of a locked cabinet just to prevent potential mishaps from occurring.

With the items listed above in your medicine cabinet, you can rest assured that you will be well prepared no matter what type of trouble comes to your baby or child.  Add them to your collection without delay!
