First Aid Kit

Everyone should have a first aid kit at home especially when you have children. There are lots of ready to purchase kits that you can find at any stores or you can make one of your own. You can have multiple kits:

-          At home, you can keep the main kit
-          A small kit for your handbag
-          A car kit to take wherever you travel. Be careful that heat and cold can affect some materials in the kit. You will have to remove them from it.

Each first aid kit should have the following:
-          List of your doctors names and numbers
