Christmas first aid kit.

Every year I make up a Christmas first aid kit which is basically a box containing everything I think that we will need in case of any minor illness or injury over the Christmas period so that I do not have to be running around to buy things should we fall unwell.
 
The contents of this box need to be tailored to your family, but to give you an idea I have listed the contents of our Christmas first aid kit below.
 
  • Plasters, bandages and antiseptic wipes.
  • General pain killers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen.
  • Heart burn or indigestion medication.
  • Period pain medication.
  • Cold and flu medication.
  • Children's cough medication.
  • Children's pain medication.
 
It is also important to check on any medication that you take regularly which you need a prescription for to make sure that you will have enough to cover the festive season. If yours is going to run out, make sure you make an appointment to see your GP now so that you can tell your doctor and then they can make sure that you will have enough.
 
Once you have gathered all your supplies make sure that you put the kit somewhere safe that small children will not be able to get to and also somewhere that is easy for you to get to in case of a minor emergency.
