I cannot stress enough how important it is to have a first aid kit in the home or even in the car! Working as a nurse for 10 years, I always must sure that the kits are well stocked and not expired. Accidents happen all the time and having a kit available is always handy than searching high and low for a clean plaster!
Kids often fall and hurt themselves while they are out. Ms C is quite clumsy and often falls and hurts herself. She has mild visual impairment and because of this, she often doesn’t see hazards until it is too late. So I have learnt that having a small first aid kit in the car is very handy. Premier Healthcare & Hygiene Ltd have kindly sent me this Kids First Aid kit for review.
Inside this kit, it comes with bandage, eyewash/woundwash pods, gloves, dressing, microporous tape, plasters, triangular bandage and wipes. They are all the essential items. I personally love the plasters as it comes with creatures which will be loved by both boys and girls. It also comes with a bag that has a mini handle and a waist belt holder. Inside the bag, there are two compartments with zips which prevent the items from dropping out of the bag. The first aid kit is inexpensive (only £5.52) and is great value for money. Personally, I would add a couple of extras in the bag like antiseptic cream, gauzes, waterproof dressing and a sachet or two of Calpol just in case kids are in pain.
Have you personally made up your own first aid kit or bought one from a shop? If so, do you keep one in your changing bag, in the car or at home?
