It is that time of year when everyone seems to be on the go. From school events, to extra activities, sports games and more, we are all busy and constantly on the run. I try my hardest to be prepared for those little bumps and bruises that life throws our way. And now I am sharing some of my new learned tricks with you. A first aid kit is one of those things that often we never think about until we need it. Skinned knees at the park, a fall during dance class, or a bee sting are typically minor issues. But not having the proper tools to take care of them can make these minor issues turn into major inconveniences.
Recently I spoke with a board certified, licensed doctor from Convenient Care Now by Hackensack University Health Network about First Aid Must Haves for Kids.

Now that you know why Convenient Care Now is such a great resource, let’s talk about what I learned about First Aid Kits.
I downloaded the Convenient Care Now app and was able to enter a little info and then choose the doctor I wanted to see.
Seeing how I was curious about First Aid kits for children I went with Dr Goldstein, a Pediatrician. Dr. Goldstein was very friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. After a few minutes of background info, here are the Must Haves for a child’s first aid kit:
Bandages of multiple sizes
2×2 inch gauze
4×4 inch gauze
Both oral and topical Benadryl
Tweezers in the event of splinters or such
A very bright flash light for looking in the throat, eyes, or dealing with wounds in the dark.
Steri-Strips for cuts that may need stitches
And finally a bottle of water to clean any wounds.
Now that you know all that Convenient Care Now has to offer, you can try it for free.
