a travel first aid kit & medicine chest
whether by car or by plane, always pack a supply of medicine
that you might need. There is nothing worse that having a
feverish child at 2AM in a strange town, then trying to find
an open store to buy Children's Tylenol.
What should be
in your travel kit?
* Any medicine
prescribed by the physician for your child
* Acetaminophen (Children's Tylenol)
* Decongestant (if your child tends to get chest colds or
* Antihistamine (for allergic reactions)
* First aid supplies (bandaids, antibiotic ointment, gauze
* Diaper rash creme (if your child is in diapers)
* Insect repellent (if travelling in summer months)
* moisturizing lotion
And if you are
travelling by air, always make sure you pack this into your
carry-on bag. The last thing you want is to spend the time
to put together your kit, only to have the airline lose it
en route to your destination. But do be aware of the special
liquid requirements size, for anything you have in your kit,
as well as other restrictions. For example, you won't be able
to travel with scissors or tweezers in your hand luggage.
