Here's a great little tip for organizing medicine. I came up with this while packing for our March trip to Atlanta and ever since have been asking myself why I didn't think of this sooner.
My favorite organizing product, has to be zipper bags like the quart size one shown at right. I only buy two sizes: quart and gallon, thus eliminating baggie clutter.
The bag in the photo was put together as a travel kit and went in our carry on. I have since kept it together at home. This basic kit of pain/fever reducers contains:
- A note card with my children's names, weight and dosage on each side.
- Ibuprofen and acetaminophen for my children.
- Marked syringes to measure and administer the children's medicine.
- An ear thermometer.
- Ibuprofen for myself and my husband.
The note card has been really helpful in not confusing the kids' dosages in a moment of worry over a sick child. In addition, I have everything I need in one place when I need it.
