When travelling, whether by car or by plane, always pack a supply of medicine that you might need. There is nothing worse that having a feverish child at 2AM in a strange town, then trying to find an open store to buy Children’s Tylenol.
What should be in your travel kit?
- Any medicine prescribed by the physician for your child
- Acetaminophen (Children’s Tylenol)
- Decongestant (if your child tends to get chest colds or runny nose)
- Antihistamine (for allergic reactions)
- First aid supplies (bandaids, antibiotic ointment, gauze pads, etc)
- Diaper rash creme (if your child is in diapers)
- Insect repellent (if travelling in summer months)
- moisturizing lotion
And if you are travelling by air, always make sure you pack this into your carry-on bag. The last thing you want is to spend the time to put together your kit, only to have the airline lose it en route to your destination.
