Your current medicine cabinet may be stocked with facial lotions, razors, shaving cream, medications, Q-Tips, nail polish remover, tooth brush, tooth paste and more but what do you need in order to stock a medicine cabinet for you new baby? Here are some things to help you buy everything that you need on your next shopping trip.
Nail clippers – A baby’s nails will grow very quickly and they have a tendency to scratch your little faces when they get upset so make sure that you have baby nail clippers to keep their nails nice and short.
Brush and comb – Use these when you groom your child after their bath.
Nasal Aspirator – Children tend to get runny and/or stuffy noses so you will need an aspirator and help remove the excess mucus from their nose so they can breathe a little easier.
Fever medicine – Always consult your pediatrician when you are going to give your child medication but it is a good idea to have some handy in the event your child runs a fever.
Thermometer – I always have two, one for taking it rectally and one for under the arm. Also have Vaseline to help lubricate the thermometer.
Diaper Rash Cream – This cream helps prevent diaper rash on your baby’s skin.
Cotton Balls or Swabs for drying out little ears.
Gas drops like Mylicon but again double check with your pediatrician.
Shampoo and Body Wash for baths.
Baby Lotion to keep the skin moisturized.
Travel healthcare kit – This kit will have everything you need for on the go including an aspirator, medicine dropper, nail clippers, thermometer and scissors.
These items will help you be prepared for everything you experience with your little one.
