    Default First Aid Kit in the car with kids.....

    Hello everyone, just wondering what would you pack in the first aid box for the car while travelling with kids.
    And anything else in general.
    Thank you

    We just bought a first aid car kit. I think we got it from bunnings actually. We added kids panadol, nurophen and antihistamines to it.

    Just be careful if they are the liquid varieties. A lot of those are "store below x temperature" and I'd imaginr cars will easily be over that

    I bought a pre-packed one too. I think it's a St Johns one. I can't even remember what's in it. Bandaids (that's all I've used!), bandages, triangle bandage, dressing pads, burn gel, stingose type stuff, antiseptic, scissors, tweezers, splinter thingy, and more stuff I'm sure.
    I carry childrens panadol in my handbag.
    I wouldn't mind getting an instant ice pack, but not sure about storage temperatures on those.

    The ice pack sounds great also. Burn gel? Would savlon be good?

    nafsika, do remember to check use by dates on those creams and gels. it is a long time, maybe a year , but do check if you plan to just put it in the car and forget about it,. marie.

    If you are making one yourself I would make sure it had sick bags, tissues, wipes, antiseptic wipes, hand sanitiser, bandages, gloves, tweezers, ice pack, tampons, pads, one of those small chamois type towels, thermometer.
