To prepare for potential emergencies, it’s a good idea to keep a well-stocked first aid kit in your home and car. You can buy preassembled first aid kits or make your own.
If you have a baby, you might need to replace or supplement some of the products in a standard first aid kit with infant-appropriate alternatives. For example, your kit should include an infant thermometer and infant acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
It’s also important to store the kit in a place where your baby can’t reach it.
Ask your pediatrician or family doctor for more information about infant-friendly first aid.
