Summer vacation… What medications to take on the road?
Well, that went for another year. Came the summer holidays ! Many at this time are planning a trip and no matter how far you go :
– To visit relatives in the village or nearby area
– To friends on the other end of the country
– Abroad or at a beach resort in exotic country
If you take with your precious child, it is necessary to think in advance about the medicine cabinet, which will provide assistance for all occasions to family vacation was nothing marred, especially given the high cost of medical care abroad.

No matter how far or close you were leaving we must think about what you’ll feed the baby on the way, because the new experience and the excitement of travel, and for a child it is a real event, necessarily cause increased appetite. Hopefully not that close to going out of the house and take the products do not have time to deteriorate… Home chicken, eggs, sandwiches, sausages deteriorate much faster than you think and if your body can digest it more or less well, then feel the strength of the digestive tract child is not worth it.
Here come to the aid canned food. Small portions, a variety of products ( from meats to fruit and vegetable purees ), shelf life, allowing them to summon help even if your child has long fed on the principle of “common table”, or if you still cook for him alone – nothing, on the road and can deviate from this rule.
Baby juices in bottles or cans packaging too small output. Calculated at one time, eliminate storage in the clear in not the best conditions of transport.
But on the widely used on the road hot mugs of soup and instant noodles is better not to think, even if your child is not considered a small, very easy to spoil the rest from the road. Just exclude the entire range of products offered at stops ( various cakes, pies, belyashi, liver, pickles with potatoes, etc.)
Same goes for the food offered in sets of planes. Children should refrain from such foods.
Surely your fidget wants to scrutinize the vehicle. So be sure to stock up on a sufficient amount of wet wipes (preferably impregnated with hypoallergenic ) and antiseptic wipes, baby hands periodically processing. Even if you have thoroughly washed them in the lavatory, then on the way to his seat, the child will have time to touch on the touch all accessible and inaccessible surfaces.
Here you are on the spot.
Minded travel and especially travel abroad – is always emotions, impressions, as well as downed mode of the day. All this can cause sleep problems. To avoid this, place in a first aid kit baby drops ” Bayu -bye ” – soft homeopathic composition will help baby fall asleep quickly and quietly.

And if you are allergic do not manifest themselves, make no mistake, the new conditions it can appear in the most unexpected moment. Therefore, antihistamines should be mandatory ( Telfast, suprastin, Claritin, zodak, erius etc.)
Do not want to scare you, but often allergic reactions can develop rapidly, so it is good if you are a couple kits ampoules and syringe prednisolone. But assessing the severity of the condition and the need to introduce such a serious drug should only be a doctor (usually in the range of holidaymakers will be people with higher medical education ).
If you are going to warmer climes, be reserved by means of bites, as well as tanning and do not neglect them, even if the child spends the most time in the shadows, harsh sun rays can harm even through the shadow. If you go on long trips, carry a stock of bottled water because it is not known whether will be able to refill it on the road.
