Today's Tiny Tip

If your family has been issued an ER punch card, like mine, consider adding 2 things to your first aid kit (and DON'T forget to keep one in your car!)

1. Butterfly Bandages. These tiny little bandaids are just used to close a gap. They can close a deep, gushing, nasty gap and make them appear harmless on the way to the doctor's office or ER.

2. Disposable Diaper. I know this sounds weird, but a diaper is really soft and super absorbant. You can cradle a head wound or wrap an arm or leg very easily. Its soft, cushiony and will absorb a lot of blood. Trust me.

If your child has a wound that makes you freak out (visable break, exposed bone, etc) don't hesitate to call an ambulance. The last thing you need is to get in an accident because you are freaking out over a fixable problem.

Happy Summer!

  1. Just a joke Kelly. Its like saying we've been to the ER so many times that they have given us a frequent visitor punch card.
