There’s almost nothing worse than driving to Walmart at 2am to buy your sick baby Motrin…to find out that Walmart had an electrical fire so they’re closed. What do you do then? You either make your sick baby suffer until morning when the pharmacy opened, or drive an hour to the next closest 24 hour Walmart. Having baby medicine on hand already would have saved so much time and frustration!

I learned from my lesson and now I have a baby medicine kit put together. Here’s what I have:
- Infant’s Motrin
- Infant’s Tylenol
- Infant’s Advil
- Nose Frida– It seems like a gross concept, but this thing works wonders!
- Ear/Forehead Thermometer
- Thermometer for under the tongue, armpits, or rectal and disposable covers
- I was given a booger sucker in the hospital, but I threw it away because it was super hard to clean and I didn’t want mold growing inside it. I bought this one instead and it’s a breeze to clean with no worries of mold. It works better than the hospital one too!
- Matys All Natural Baby Chest Rub. I’m pretty picky about what products I use on my baby and the ingredients in this rub were a lot friendlier then the ingredients in Vicks.
- Warm Mist Humidifier I made sure to get the 95% bacteria free one. There’s no point to a humidifier if it blows germs around the room!
- Children’s Benadryl
- California Baby Therapeutic Relief Diaper Rash Cream– This one is on the pricey end, but again, I’ve actually looked up every single ingredient on the most common brands and what shocked by what I learned. I will never use those brands on my baby! California Baby and Burt’s Bees are the most organic and healthy brands to use.
- Pedialyte– When my baby had the flu Pedialyte made a world of difference in keeping him hydrated.
- Boogie Wipes
- Neosporin and Band-Aids
- Baby Qtips. These ones are awesome because they prevent you from going too far into their ear.
- Hand Sanitizer
- Nasal Spray – This one is the cheapest but I prefer this one by a long shot. The spray is easier to get into baby’s nose from any direction, but the drops can only be put in the baby’s nose while laying down.
Be sure to read all of the labels and consult your doctor before giving your child anything if they are under the age of 2!
