Those mini adventures can often lead to a boo-boo or two

Registered nurse and midwife Jani Combrink from Stork’s Nest in Singapore says what you need to keep your family on the road.

 

1 Stop Aches And Pains

Pack a fever syrup (like paracetamol or ibuprofen) and choose one that is age appropriate.

 

2 Save Sensitive Skins

A new environment could play havoc with your tot’s skin. Jani suggests packing an age appropriate antihistamine syrup and cream.

 

3 Kickstart After Tummy Troubles

Pop some electrolyte sachets into your pack to help put some colour back in their face.

 

4 Protect Bumps And Scrapes

Those mini adventures can often lead to a boo-boo or two. Put a small wound kit in your case that includes antiseptic, gauze, antiseptic ointment, wound dressings and band aids.

 

5 Personal Treatment

Don’t forget to pack personal medication (like asthma inhalers, epipen, etc for individual conditions)
