Now is the perfect time for a fresh start to your healthcare routine #Moms4JNJConsumer

We are a big Soccer family and all three kids are actively involved in teams. We had our fair share of accidents, cuts and bruises and learned our lesson and always have a first aid kit in the car for those little boo-boo’s that just need a little attention right away.

I decided to give you a little insight into our First Aid Kit to get you started with your very own; it’s always good to have one around the house, in the car and any other place you think of; even the imaginable place, you never know when you need to treat that little cut or injury. Especially with kids, anything can happen the nice thing Johnson & Johnson is always by your side and will make everything better in no time.

In our First Aid Kit we include a lot of different things, check out what we have and I would love to know what is in yours as well.

Our First Aid Kit

  • Band-Aid
  • Neosporin
  • Baby Shampoo to clean the cuts right away
  • Wash cloth
  • Visine in case the kids get dry eye on the fields
  • More Band-Aid’s ~ you can never have too many of those
  • Sample packs of Tylenol
  • Sample packs of Benadryl
  • Gloves
  • Instant Ice packs
  • Surgical tape
  • Small scissors
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Alcohol Swaps

    I’m sure I forgot a few things, we update our kit often and replace anything that was used quickly. I also love to use sample size of the ointments, shampoo and anything else that you can get samples, because you really don’t use it often but the time you need it, you are glad you have it in hand. The sample packs can be found just about at any store and will fit perfect into a First Aid box.

    I must say that I don’t have a complete health care kit. I need to get it full because some important things are missing. Thank you very much for this reminder and the extensive list, it’s very good one.

    I need to inventory our first aid kits. Using baby shampoo to clean cuts it a great idea. Adding that to my inventory list.


    Lisa January 13, 2014 at 9:29 am

    That reminds me — I need to replenish our first aid kit!

    I might have a band-aid in my purse. Does that count as a first aid kit? I think I need to check out those coupons!

    I now have a great First Aid Kit, because you inspired me to put the items all together in one place! I do want to add one thing: make sure it is high enough to be out of the reach of little ones!


    jenny at dapperhouse January 13, 2014 at 10:52 pm

    I am going to try to win this trip for my sons and husband. I am going to try and make the twitter tomorrow. I remember when I was a teenager I would put a bit of the Johnson’s baby shampoo on a comb and put it through my hair to make is smell good :)

    I had no idea that baby shampoo helped with cuts! Hmm…I wonder what’s in it that makes it great for those? Interesting! I definitely need to get a first aid kid set up for our car, ready to go for when we take trips. Thanks for giving me some ideas :)


    Janeane Davis January 14, 2014 at 2:49 am
