What do YOU pack in a first aid kit when going camping with small children? (1 year old - 3 years old)

It's only one night, but I'd rather be prepared. I'm not listing what I already have because I want to see what you all say uninfluenced.

  • I pack my entire medicine cabinet! LOL!

    It's a good thing too because I ended up needing my burn spray AND neosporin on our last camping trip when a three year old touched a char coal grill cover. Her parents were right there, they said "Don't touch it, it's hot!" and her curiosity got the best of her before anyone could stop her! She was fine, but the spray and pain relieving neosporin really helped.

  • *Calamine lotion is a must for bug bites and poison ivy. Cortizone creams and benedryl creams aren't as safe for a 1 year old as calamine.

    *Antibiotic ointment that has an added pain killer. Neosporin makes one.

    *Aloe vera for burns, including sunburns.


    *Don't forget to take sunscreen.
