First Aid Kit at Home for Children – Items to have in it

Published on March 10, 2016

A first-aid kit is a necessity in every home especially when you have kids. Small children are generally prone to allergies, falls and bruises. Having a well-stocked first aid kit will help you tackle minor injuries and illness.


  • Keep it out of children’s reach
  • Keep a check on expiry of medicines
  • Keep a manual to know your medicine. And make sure that your kid’s caretaker understands the usage.
  • Keep it in a central location such that it is within reach


  • First-aid manual
  • An infant/child thermometer
  • Tweezers for removing splinters
  • Disposable cold pack for applying to bruises
  • Flashlight for checking sore throats
  • An antiseptic solution (like hydrogen peroxide) for sterilizing the equipments
  • Sharp scissors
  • An adhesive tape
  • List of emergency phone numbers


  • Bandage for wound protection
  • Antiseptic wipes to clean cuts and scrapes
  • Antibacterial cream for applying to cuts after cleansing
  • Antihistamine (like Benadryl) to soothe allergic reaction to a wound
  • Calamine lotion for soothing the itch of insect bites
  • Rehydration fluids (like Pedialyte) to treat dehydration
  • Gauze for dressing wounds
  • Sterile cotton balls for wiping bleeding bruises.

If you need a mobile first aid, simply transfer few essentials in a zip-lock bag. Make sure you have pain reliever, bandage, thermometer, calamine, antibacterial cream in the kit. So, you have your first aid kit wherever you go.
