Preparing for Summer Vacation

remember your child’s health and safety when packing for summer vacation. We recommend you add the following to your suitcase:

  • Your Child’s Health reference book
  • A working thermometer
  • Acetaminophen
  • Sunscreen and bug spray
  • Benadryl for allergic reactions and/or itching
  • Hydrocortisone cream 1% for bug bites/itchy rashes
  • Your insurance card. Also, be sure you KNOW your out-of town insurance options in an emergency.
  • Your patience and understanding: children’s behavior can be unpredictable when they are in unfamiliar surroundings. 
  • Chronic medications for patients with medical conditions. (eg. Asthmatics should always travel with their rescue inhaler medications or nebulizer, even if they haven’t needed it in months.)
