27 Baby-Proofing Items Every House Needs ASAP
First Aid Kit
A surprising number of parents don’t think about the importance of a well-stocked first-aid kit until they find themselves in need. Make sure you have all the basics: Bandages, gauze pads, adhesive tape, antibiotic ointment, alcohol swabs. Liquid bandage can be helpful, as well as a baggie of clean rags to deal with bleeding. Consider a styptic stick, which can seal the skin together and stop bleeding. And, of course, make sure you likewise have a well-stocked medicine cabinet. Pain reliever, fever reducer, allergy medicine, and other age-appropriate medicines can save your sanity when your little ones get hurt or come down with something.
