One of the worst things to face any parent is to have to run out in the middle of the night to search for a pharmacy where you can purchase baby medicine.
Even for those who prefer natural remedies for those aged under two years, sometimes baby needs medicine. The pediatrician usually prescribes the appropriate dose based on weight.
Here are some baby medicines and items that new parents should keep in their baby medicine bag mainly during travel.
- Thermometer (AAP prefer digital ones)
- Children's non-aspirin liquid pain reliever (acetaminophen or ibuprofen) for pain and fever reduction
- Alcohol-free teething gel for babies four months and up
- Topical calamine lotion or hydrocortisone cream (1/2 percent) for insect bites and skin rashes
- Vaseline to protect from diaper rash
- Antibacterial ointment for cuts and for scrapes
- Child-safe sunscreen lotion
- Nasal aspirator bulb, and saline drops for stuffy noses
- Mild liquid soap (not necessary to be antibacterial)
- A dropper, oral needle-less syringe, or calibrated spoon for administering medicines
- Insect repellent
- Rubbing alcohol to clean thermometers
- Baby shampoo
- A collection of adhesive bandage strips and gauze pads.
- First-Aid book to deal with minor emergencies at least.
Additional item to include if your pediatrician recommended so:
- Rehydration solution to compensate fluid loss in case of diarrhea
