7 Medicine Cabinet Must-Haves for Baby

When we first moved in together, my husband was pleasantly surprised to find that I had a fully stocked medicine cabinet. Instead of moping about with a cold, he could go into the bathroom and find the appropriate remedy and feel better. Amazing!

Now that I’m a mom, I like to keep a fully stocked arsenal of products to help my little ones feel better when they’re sick or hurt, especially now during cold and flu season. It’s not always easy to treat illnesses in babies and small children because many products are not approved for them but, through some trial and error, I’ve found a few ways to lessen discomfort during colds and make bumps and bruises feel better, too.

Here are my must-have medicine cabinet staples!

  • Teethin Tablets 1 of 7
    Teethin Tablets
    Some people are skeptical of homeopathics but I've used these on myself after dental work, and I assure you, they work!
    Purchase from Drugstore.com for $9.19
  • Gas Drops 2 of 7
    Gas Drops
    Babies are gassy little critters and it can make them so sad and uncomfortable. Gas drops soothe bubbly tummies.
    Purchase from Babies R Us for $8.99
  • Antibiotic Ointment 3 of 7
    Antibiotic Ointment
    Sharp little baby nails can slice up delicate baby faces. A dab of antibiotic ointment can heal up scrapes faster.
    Purchase from Target for $3.89
  • Acetaminophen 4 of 7
    Acetaminophen
    This pain reliever and fever reducer helps with everything from ear infections to teething pain. Talk to your pediatrician about dosage!

  • Cortisone Cream 5 of 7
    Cortisone Cream
    Both of my kids are prone to exzema and dry skin. Cortisone clears it right up.
    Purchase from Target for $8.39
  • Cold Tablets 6 of 7
    Cold Tablets
    Again, these homeopathics really work. I take them myself for colds and sniffles - they dry up post --nasal drip and make it easier to breathe!
    Purchase from Target for $8.00
  • Saline Spray 7 of 7
    Saline Spray
    Babies hate, hate, HATE this but it clears out a goopy nose and makes a stuffy baby happier in the end.
    Purchase from Target for $3.79
