Over three years of mom-ming later, I think I may have finally gotten the hang of things *knocks on wood*… If I could go back in time and give the first time mom version of myself some advice, it would be to always have extra baby clothes in the car, always have an extra box of diapers stashed away, and to never take it all too seriously.


I recently created a “DIY Emergency Kit” for our car and I’m so excited to share it with you all! We’ve had a unofficial emergency kit in the trunk for about a year, but a few weeks ago, I perfected it!



Δ Little Remedies® Gas Relief Drops

Δ Little Remedies® Honey Cough Syrup

Δ Blanket – because grocery stores and restaurants are cold!

Δ Washcloth – because you never know who is going to spill or spit up!

Δ Itch cream – because we live in the desert and there are bugs everywhere.

Δ Sunscreen – once again, we live in a desert!!

Δ Diaper rash cream – ALWAYS have diaper rash cream nearby.

Δ Bandages – especially if your toddlers are anything like mine.

Δ Cold pack – once again… TODDLERS.

Δ Nail polish – for me, because I always forget to paint my nails before we go somewhere!

Δ I also like to include: water bottle, crackers, iPhone charger, and anything else that would help make my life easier on a road trip, long drive, or an emergency.

We ALWAYS have to have Little Remedies® in our emergency kit, always. They offer safe & reliable solutions just for your little ones. My six month old gets horrible tummy aches which is why we always have their Gas Relief Drops nearby. They quickly (works in minutes!!) relieve tummy pain from excess gas. It’s a safe remedy to gently ease gas, pressure and bloating. We’ve been using it since he was about a month old (because it’s safe for newborns) after our pediatrician recommended it!  These Gas Relief Drops relieve excess gas from food or swallowing of air. (And because I know so many people care about this–including myself–there are no artificial colors or artificial flavors and no alcohol, saccharin or parabens!) Dosage: Newborns and infants under 2 (under 24lbs) – 0.3mL. Children 2 and over (24lbs and up) – 0.6mL.



We also always have Little Remedies® Honey Cough Syrup on hand for my two and three year old daughters. Especially during winter, we need to have a simple, natural relief for little coughs on hand at all times*. If you have a baby age 12 months+, I highly recommend this 100% natural cough syrup! They have no artificial colors or flavors, no saccharin or alcohol, no high fructose corn syrup and only 3 ingredients. To soothe coughs, give recommended serving size every 2-4 hours using the measuring cup provided* (children ages 1 to 4: 1 tsp. Adults and children over age 4: 2 tsp).

Both Little Remedies® Gas Relief Drops and Honey Cough Syrup can be found at Walmart in the baby section! (Little Remedies® Honey Cough Syrup 4oz is on Rollback for $5.97! Little Remedies® Gas Drops 1 oz. are also on rollback at Walmart for only $7.17!)
