As children grow and become more adventurous, it is almost inevitable that they will need first aid at some point. After all, children learn by trying things out. If they fall while climbing on something, they’ll learn to try again another time and perhaps to try a different technique.
Of course, you will want to protect your children from the bumps and bruises of everyday life. However, wrapping them in cotton wool isn’t an option.
Instead, you should ensure you have a well-stocked first aid kit. This will ensure your kids develop the confidence to try new things, and know that you will be able to make them feel better if they do hurt themselves.
Stocking your first aid kit
At Rightdose, we are here to help you keep your first aid kit stocked. Among the items you should have in your first aid kit are:
- Antiseptic cream
- Bandages and plasters
- Safety pins
- Children’s paracetamol
You may also want to keep antihistamines at hand, if your child is allergic to anything. Antiseptic cream is generally a gentler way to clean and protect cuts and grazes than wipes or liquids. This means they can offer the same protection without the stinging that can distress your child more.
Rightdose - for first aid
At Rightdose, we supply all the things you will need to keep your first aid kit stocked. This means you can have the confidence to let your child play and explore, safe in the knowledge that you will be able to treat them if they do get hurt.
