When you’re a mom, you’re no stranger to chaos. Kids can go from quietly playing in a corner to wrecking the entire house (and themselves!) in approximately three seconds flat. Cuts and scrapes, bloody noses, and insect bites seem to come out of nowhere. Plus, when they’re home from school for the summer, things are bound to get a little chaotic. So, we think creating a Mom Emergency (Mom-ergency?) kit is an important pre-summer ritual. Here are five items moms need to have around the house in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
In Case of Skinned Knees
The sun rises every morning. Dogs are man’s best friend. Kids trip over nothing. That’s just how it works. Bandages are absolutely essential, but take your mom skills to the next level with a bacteria-fighting ointment like Neosporin. It cleans the wound of bacteria, reduces the chance of infection, and even relieves pain.
In Case of Bee Stings
Kids playing outside in hot weather inevitably leads to bee stings. While bee stings aren’t very harmful, they can be painful and probably a little traumatic for a kid. We suggest applying After Bite Itch Eraser to the affected area. Scratching the sting only makes it worse, so preventing the itch in the first place puts your child on the fast track to healing.
In Case of Toothaches
Next on the list of items moms need: Orajel. Summer is the time for popsicles, ice cream, and other sweet treats, so cavities and other tooth troubles tend to come along. Orajel eases the pain until you can get your little one to the dentist.
In Case of Sunburn
We all welcome the sunshine that comes along with summer, but sometimes, our skin has other plans! If your child gets a sunburn, we recommend applying Vaseline to help with peeling. Embracing SPF helps as well.
In Case of Food Poisoning
Food poisoning is no way to spend the summer! Pepto Bismol provides relief so your child can get back to enjoying sunny days! Pair it with seltzer water and bland foods, and she’ll feel better in no time.
