In my pharmacy, I put…
It’s likely that before you were a parent, your medicine cabinet contained a jar ofAdvil to survive the aftermath of your drunken nights and …. uh…That‘s all… Am I right?! When you become a parent, you realize that it’s time to feed that meager pharmacy. Because you know as well as I do, a child doesn’t always choose the right moment to have a painful teething problem, to “grate” his knee on the asphalt or to have a little allergic reaction. You make the mistake of not being equipped once because at 10:00 p.m., when your child has a sudden flare-up of fever and doesn’t“feel ” at all, the pharmacy is closed, you blame yourself for not havingAcetaminophen on hand!
So here is the (non-exhaustive) list of what I think is essential to have in your smart parenting pharmacy! :
–Acetaminophen (ex: Tylenol, Tempra)
–Ibuprofen (ex: Advil)
–Antihistamine (e.g. Benadryl)
–Electrolyte drink (ex: Pedialyte. I like the powdered alternative in small individual bags and the MR.Freeze always ready in the freezer)
–Anti-nausea (ex: Gravol)
–The kit for nasal showers (eg. Sinus rinse)
–Tool for the administration of syrups such as a syringe and measuring cup
–Hot and cold compress as a magic bag, an Icepack or an instant cold compress
–Thermometer (ideally 2, one oral and one rectal, or just 1 if you live dangerously)
–A well-stocked first aid kit
–The number of the poison control center.
For me, these are the essentials to have in our pharmacy as savvy parents. With this on hand, you should be ready to survive the next baby virus!
