TheCG Posted September 4, 2012 Share Posted September 4, 2012 (edited) What should I have stored for kids? My stepkids will be 6 and 9 in November. I'm a bit late to the game, as I didn't really worry about what you can or can't give kids before marrying their dad. Is there anything in particular I should NOT use for them? I know I can adjust the dosage on some things, but have been going by the labels on everything so far. I know I should never give them aspirin, but am unsure on other things. What should I be storing specifically for them? Do I need to have stuff like Pedialyte stashed, or does something like Gatorade and Otter pops fulfill the same function? Our kitchen is gluten-free; what can we store that would be simple for them to eat when they're sick? We can keep crackers, they would just be sealed somewhere other than the kitchen. Is there any good source y'all recommend for info on kids? They are prone to respiratory crud (they're both allergic to dogs and cats, they have both at their mother's house, but she doesn't consistently give them allergy medicine). I plan to put in an email to their grandmother as well - they lived in her house for a while and she's an RN, so she'll probably have a few good ideas. Thanks for any help. This is a big hole in my knowledge right now. Edited September 4, 2012 by TheCG Quote Link to comment
