When traveling, whether by car or by plane, always pack a supply of medicine that you might need. There is nothing worse that having a feverish child at 2AM in a strange town, then trying to find an open store to buy Children’s Tylenol.
What should be in your travel kit?
* Any medicine prescribed by the physician for your child
* Acetaminophen (Children’s Tylenol)
* Decongestant (if your child tends to get chest colds or runny nose)
* Antihistamine (for allergic reactions)
* First aid supplies (bandaids, antibiotic ointment, gauze pads, etc)
* Diaper rash creme (if your child is in diapers)
* Insect repellent (if traveling in summer months)
* moisturizing lotion
And if you are traveling by air, always make sure you pack this into your carry-on bag. The last thing you want is to spend the time to put together your kit, only to have the airline lose it en route to your destination. But do be aware of the special liquid requirements size, for anything you have in your kit, as well as other restrictions. For example, you won’t be able to travel with scissors or tweezers in your hand luggage.
