After we posted Willow's First Aid Boxes yesterday, we thought we should follow up with a post on how to stock a kit for your bathroom. For the best advice, we turned to the American Red Cross:

According to the Red Cross' list of disaster supplies, a home first aid kit should contain the following:

• (20) adhesive bandages, various sizes.
• (1) 5" x 9" sterile dressing.
• (1) conforming roller gauze bandage.
• (2) triangular bandages.
• (2) 3 x 3 sterile gauze pads.
• (2) 4 x 4 sterile gauze pads.
• (1) roll 3" cohesive bandage.
• (2) germicidal hand wipes or waterless alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
• (6) antiseptic wipes.
• (2) pair large medical grade non-latex gloves.
• Adhesive tape, 2" width.
• Anti-bacterial ointment.
• Cold pack.
• Scissors (small, personal).
• Tweezers.
• CPR breathing barrier, such as a face shield.

You can purchase complete first aid kits through the Red Cross here.
