Oopsie! Uh-oh. Ouch!

You know what those words mean – your graceful little angel has a bump, bruise, scrape or cut. But when a special kiss from Mommy just isn't enough, it's time to turn to the first aid kit. Don't have one? Don't fret – we’ll fill you in on the essential first aid supplies you need to soothe all those boo-boos.

First aid essentials

Keep your medicine cabinet and a small travel bag (for the car) well-stocked with the following:

  • Adhesive bandages in various sizes
  • Sterile gauze pads
  • Triple antibiotic ointment
  • Aloe vera (to soothe sunburns)
  • Instant cold packs (for bumps and sprains)
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers
  • Oral thermometer
  • Disposable gloves
  • Small scissors and tweezers (for those stubborn splinters!)
  • Hand sanitizer

While it may be impossible to prepare for everything life throws at you, you’ll at least be well-equipped to keep knees, elbows and chins protected when you buy first aid supplies online at Vitacost.com!

First Aid Tips

You bump into the coffee table, trip over the Welcome mat or miss that piece of onion and cut yourself instead. Sometimes the things you do every day can one day cause a bruised leg or bleeding finger. That’s why you have all the first aid supplies on hand. But do you know how to keep your first aid kit safe to ensure your own safety? Here’s how:

  • Organize your first aid kit by order of use, perhaps putting hand sanitizer and gloves on top. A disheveled first aid kit can lead to more injury if, say, a pair of scissors is buried beneath piles of gauze and bandages.
  • Keep emergency phone numbers alongside, or taped to the inside, of your first aid kit – including contact information for physicians/pediatricians, your local hospital and poison control center.
  • Store your kit in a safe, close-at-hand place, such as a kitchen pantry or hall closet. Be sure the space is cool and dry so as not to compromise the potency of any medicated tablets and ointments.
