So, I'm here to tell you that scrapes and scratches are part of childhood. When you have
That's why I always have a supply of Band-Aids on hand. They come in handy when my older boys think up idiotic things to try and they're invaluable when the little kids come to me with invisible owies that need Band-Aids. Somehow, putting a Sponge Bob Band-Aid on a tiny microscopic scratch makes it all better! Not to mention, the time I use the Band-Aids on actual cuts and scrapes that need covered. And especially during the summer, when the kids are out getting dirty every day, their owies definitely need to be covered. Seriously, it amazes me how dirty my kids get in the summer. I think they're getting tan until they take a shower and their "tans" wash off.
Band-Aid has a new product that is waterproof (a MUST when you spend several days a week at the pool!) and has antibiotic ointment right on the pad. These help prevent infection and heal boo-boos faster than regular bandages.
Another product I have to keep on hand especially in the summer, is Neo To Go. It's a small spray container of Neosporin that's convenient to take along in your purse, diaper bag, or tote bag of necessities for the beach, pool, zoo, park, etc. My kids love it because it doesn't sting. I love it because, when we're out and the kids get hurt, there isn't always soap and water around, and this kills germs to help prevent infection.
