As much as you try to keep your child safe, accidents will happen. Bumps, bruises, and scrapes are a normal part of a child's early years as he explores the world around him.
Be ready for an emergency by preparing a first aid kit. Store it in a place that's out of your child's reach, but easily accessible for adults. Don't forget to tell a babysitter or other caregiver where you've placed the kit in your home. You may also want to keep a second first aid kit in your car.
