Here at Sassy Mama we totally understand that sometimes kids have accidents! Unfortunately, it’s not only littlies that get bumps and bruises — sometimes even we can be a bit clumsy too! With a bit of organisation however you can prepare your family for whatever everyday maladies or misfortunes that arise with our Sassy Mama First Aid Kit Essentials printable.
This handy downloadable checklist shows you exactly what you should include in your home first aid kit: creams, bandages, and all the potions and lotions you need to treat everything from cuts and scrapes to fevers and allergies. Being aware of what’s in your first aid kit allows you and your family to be better prepared for dealing with sudden accidents — turning potential emergencies into manageable mishaps!
If however an emergency does arise (touch wood it doesn’t!) it’s always a good idea to have a list of emergency contact numbers firmly plastered on your fridge, so that if you’re not at home when an accident happens, whoever is there (whether that’s your helper, a babysitter, a family member or a friend) will know exactly who to call.
A huge thanks goes to Kate Griffiths for helping us put this list together. Kate is a qualified RGN with a degree in Nursing BSc (Hons). Kate has three children and like many of us has had her fair share of accidents and mishaps with her children. She has learnt to never leave the house without a first aid kit safely tucked away.
