    Default Medicine chest

    As a first time mum, I'm not 100% sure as to what I should have in my baby's medical supplies. So far, I have the following:

    -nasal aspirator
    -baby Panadol
    -thermometer

    What else should I have? The books suggest heaps, but what really is needed and really works? Our next milestone looks like teething so any ideas would be gratefully received!

    For general first aid I would have a cream like paraderm plus that can be used on bites, sunburn, rashes, nappy rash, a good all rounder that will see you through until you get to the chemist, and other basic first aid like bandaids, ice pack, etc for when they start walking and are getting lots of bumps. Otherwise i would just buy stuff as you need it if you have relatively easy access to a chemist.
