First aid kit

Updated: Sep 23, 2020

When it comes to minor accidents and first aid kits, parents can often be divided into two categories: the "super prepared for any eventuality" and the "come on, I'll give you a kiss and it'll pass". As always, the truth lies somewhere in between. Children jump, run and play and accidents are inevitable. It is therefore necessary to have a small first aid kit at home with the necessary for small medications and medical needs. It is important to keep all the material in a closed container and out of the reach of children, so that they do not have the opportunity to access it alone. Here is the essential:

- Patches;

- gauze;

- elastic bandage

- disinfectant;

- thermometer;

- paracetamol;

- arnica (optional);

- vials of physiological solution (optional);

- scissors;

- tweezers;

- any medications your child takes regularly

Do not make an infinite supply of lactic ferments, syrups and various creams, eye drops. They can be purchased when needed and you risk not using them and making them expire. No to cortisone and antibiotics. These are drugs that must be bought and taken only and exclusively under medical prescription. It is also important to have the emergency numbers at hand, my advice is to mark them on a piece of paper and always keep it in sight (for example attached to the fridge):

- 9-9-9 / 1-1-1;

- regional poison control center

The same goes for unblocking and first aid maneuvers. It is very important to take a course that teaches you the maneuvers in a practical way. Then you can summarize the steps and keep them handy in case of an emergency.
