Baby’s First Aid Kit for Travel

By Nomad Mum

If you travel with baby a first aid kid will be helpful. This is what we took on our travel:

Hier klicken für die deutsche Version.

 

1. Paracetamol for pain and fever

We actually took Paracetamol suppository (75mg) but you can take any kind of administration form, e.g. a suspension:

 

2. Viburcol for nervousness, pain and fever

These are homeopathic suppository.

 

3. Saline drops for stuffy nose and eyes

Naturally helps to clean nose and eyes.

 

4. Nasal Spay for the sniffles

We took Olynth nasal spray with 0.025% xylometazoline-hydrochloride for strong sniffles.

 

5. BioGaia drops for abdominal pain

Helps your baby stomach to digest in a probiotic way.

 

6. Simethicone for abdominal pain

It relieves the gas in your baby’s stomach.

 

7. Caraway suppository for flatulence/gas

Unfortunately, not available on Amazon. 1 suppository contains 1 g.

 

8. Thermometer with a flexible tip

If you don’t have one yet, I find the ones with a flexible tip very useful.

    Hello,

    I found this post really useful. Is there a reason you use more natural remedies and suppositories over more mainstream/oral medication? I have been looking into more homeopathic remedies for my 18 month old and would like a make a travel first aid kit. I’m from the UK and a lot of these brands I haven’t heard of before but I am really interested in learning more. Also have you added any new items to your first aid kit, now that you have a toddler?

    Thanks,

    Shanice

      Hi Shanice,
      yes, we do use more natural remedies because they are less aggressive than medication with chemical active agents.

      For the toddler, we added a disinfection spray and medical tapes for scratches etc.
      Moreover, we added anti-vomiting and electrolytes powder (against dehydration in case of gastroenteritis) for both kids.

      Good to know, that the article was helpful 🙂 Thank you!
