BabyAid Compact - First Aid Kit

BabyAid Compact - First Aid Kit

All I can say is WOW! I have to admit that this product has amazed me ... why? because it is literally brilliant.

When I first saw the BabyAid Compact I commented to my husband about how nice the zip-up bag was, it is colourful and really sturdy. It is made from really thick tough waterproof rubber and so is excellent for a first-aid kit, I also believe that it will last a very long time.

Then I opened it ..... my mouth dropped with amazement as inside it is like a tardis!
The BabyAid Compact First Aid Kit isn't your normal kit, it contains nearly everything you would ever need in a minor first aid emergency (obviously in a major emergency you would contact the emergency services, never hesitate if someone requires medical attention).

BabyAid Compact contains 33 items and still has space for you to add some of your own. Dimensions are 15cm x 10cm x 5cm.
The kit contains :
3 x Burnshield Burnblott Sachets
1 x Non adherent absorbent dressing 10cm x 10cm
1 x Conforming bandage 5cm x 4m
1 x Blunt first aid scissors
1 x Adhesive tape 1,25cm x 5m
1 x Sterile Eyewash/Woundwash pod 20ml
3 x Disposable Traxit children's thermometers
4 x Alcohol free cleansing wipes
2 x 4cm x 4cm hypoallergenic plasters
1 x 6cm x 7cm hypoallergenic plasters
8 x Children's fun hypoallergenic plasters
6 x Brave Little Star Stickers
1 x How to make it better-Guidance leaflet
1 x What is it all for-Directions for use leaflet

The disposable thermometers are great, you peel off the backing and stick it to the skin on the side of the body deep in the armpit (just below the crease). They are sticky enough to stay on the skin for up to 2 days! while being totally non-toxic and hypoallergenic.
You can then take the temperature your child by gently lifting their arm, so midnight temperature checks can be taken without disturbing your child. You have to wait 2-3 minutes for the initial reading but from then on each reading is instant and up to date.

Another great product in the pack is the Burnshield Burn Blott Sachets . They create an immediate effect for burns, scalds and sunburn (until further treatment can be sort). The sachets create a protective barrier to help prevent the burn damaging healthly tissue.

It is great to see Micropore Tape being added into a First-Aid Kit. I am allergic to plasters (the waterproof ones) and so I have to use either fabric plasters or a dressing held on by Micropore Tape. So I am really pleased that a company has thought of including it into their kit.

The kit also contains Alcohol FREE Cleansing Wipes, yes your read that correctly - they are alcohol free. The wipes will clean and soothe cuts and grazes without you having to worry about the nastiness of the alcohol type.

Hidden deep at the bottom of a pocket is an eyewash/woundwash pod. Its a plastic pouch full of a sterile solution ready for cleaning, you just snap off the top and tip the fluid onto the area that needs cleaning - brilliant!

Along with all the amazing first aid products the kit also contains a small booklet with advice directly from the British Red Cross about unconsciousness, CPR, choking, burns and loads more. A great handy guide which you can refer to to refresh your first aid skills or learn something new.

I am really really impressed with the BabyAid Compact First Aid Kit, honestly that amount of products contained inside is incredible as each and every one has been thought about. This isn't your normal 'run of the mill' first aid kit - it has been designed with children, mums and families in mind.

I would suggest adding in some gloves as if its a stranger bleeding from a cut it is always best to cover your hands if you are treating them.

My rating: A very well deserved 10/10 !!
