1. Store it in the right place
Also, keep it organised: Having to look for a package leaflet that’s flying around somewhere because you haven’t returned it to the package the last time you used that medication is unnerving.
2. Check for expiration dates and age specifications
Also, check for age specifications and dosage recommendations on the medication intended for your children. The types of medications they can use change as they grow older, as does the dosage. Upgrade and stock up when and where necessary.
3. Check whether you have the right first aid bandages and products
4. Assemble a “to-go-set”
5. Calling sheet
