When we’re going to travel out of the state, I make a checklist on what I will need. to prepare my First Aid Box, according to what we will be doing and I pack a little extra. Traveling to a foreign country can be a bit difficult to go to a nearby pharmacy. I make sure I organize my supplies and divide my First Aid Box into three sections.
- First Aid Essentials
- Prescribe medication
- Feminine Products
I like to be prepared and not find myself scrambling looking for basic essentials. Having it all on hand especially when I have a screaming child when traveling to a foreign country makes life much easier. I will rather be prepared than not being able to find a basic medicine if something goes wrong especially with kids.
I bought a compact inexpensive First Aid Box (waterproof) for about ten bucks. It has a various compartment that I can store enough supplies. It fits in my carry on or I can throw it in my luggage. My suggestion, carry enough to cover your family for the duration of your trip incases something happens.
First Aid Kit Items:
If you or anyone traveling with you have a medical condition such as asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart condition or other medical problems that need daily medications, it’s very important you consider the following;
I like to buy the individual packets, instead of the bottles. It’s more convenient and saves me a lot of space when packing. I rather have them in individual packets than loose in a small ziplock bag.
I take both Advil and Tylenol)
2. Excedrin for Migraine
Since my son was a toddler, I’ve owned severals, medibuddy. I Love them, I’ve always kept one in my diaper bag and as my son got older I always pack one in his little backpack whenever we’re on the go. They are so compact and they fit any bag, just right for mommy to keep in their bag for unexpected emergencies. I keep Neosporin, small thermometer and hydrocortisone in mine. Believe me, they come in handy and very useful and I’m never left scrambling on the playground with a sobbing kid.
Maxi Pads and Tampons– If you are good tracking your period on a monthly basis or if it’s out of whack you want to be prepared and avoid accidents. I pack them anyway because sometimes when you travel your body goes through some changes.
