On a trip with children, it is very normal for suitcases to "grow" and carry many times, much more than necessary. There are so many things that we have to carry ... clothes, toys, diapers, accessories ... and almost always we forget something that I think is essential: a first aid kit. The kit or first aid kit is a necessary and essential resource in travel with children.
Accidents do not warn. So the best thing is that we are always prepared for any type of situation and even more so if we are with children.
A basic first aid kit
The first aid kit or kit is a necessary and essential resource when traveling with children. It is important to have everything you need at hand for any unexpected situation.
Since I had my daughter, I always carry one in the glove compartment of the car. And when we travel by train, plane or other type of transport, I carry it in my suitcase. I think that to make a first aid kit, basically we have to gather:
- Antiseptics. They serve to prevent and prevent wound infections. They protect the wound from germs and germs that can worsen the condition of the wounds and spoil our trip.
- Healing material. I refer to gauze, compresses, dressings, bandages, cotton, etc., which are used to cleanse, cover wounds of cuts or burns, to protect the wound from a possible infection, as well as to control hemorrhages.
- Instruments and tools. We must always have at our disposal a pair of scissors, a thermometer, a flashlight, wipes and tissues, and tweezers, to manipulate the healing material.
- Medications. Apart from the medicines that the family usually uses, it is also necessary that we have: analgesics, anti-inflammatories and antipyretics such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen and aspirin, in addition to antihistamines in the case of any allergy. It is not possible to foresee a bite of any insect or any skin or nasal allergy that may occur. I also usually include small doses of saline for some discomfort in the eyes or to clean the nose.
In a first aid kit, depending on the place where we go, you can also include creams against sunburn or fire, some eye drops, an antacid if we eat something that has caused heartburn in our stomachs, or any medication in the case that the children feel dizzy and want to vomit on the plane. Having all that at hand, it will be easier for the family to ensure a good trip.
