Natural First Aid Kit

Just as most homes have a conventional first aid kit, you can create a natural first aid kit that includes everything you need for emergencies. Place the items in a sturdy box or bag so that you can easily carry the kit when you are on the go. Be prepared for cuts, bee stings, bug bites, motion sickness, burns, food poisoning, poison ingestion, infection, fever, bruises, nosebleeds, choking, cold, flu, and digestive upset.

In addition, make a list of emergency numbers. Keep one copy in the natural first aid kit, and post another copy in a location that is in sight and obvious to anyone who cares for your child. Include the phone numbers of your baby’s health care provider, the poison control center, and the nearest hospital or medical center.

In addition to being prepared with a natural first-aid kit and emergency numbers, you may save your child’s life by learning how to do CPR and the Heimlich maneuver. Classes in these and other first-aid techniques are often offered at the local YMCA or community health organization.
