Mom's Summer Survival Guide: Handling Minor Mishaps

Hey there, fellow Moms! Are you gearing up for a summer full of sunshine, adventures, and endless fun with your little ones? Us too! But as any seasoned mom knows, with all summertime excitement comes the occasional mishap – from cuts and scrapes to pesky splinters and blisters. That’s why we dreame up ourGoKit, your trusty sidekick for handling all those minor bumps and bruises while you're out and about with the kiddos this summer!

What Makes aKEEP>GOING First Aid KitSpecial?

Let's start by talking about what sets this kit apart from the rest. Designed by parents of four with busy moms like you in mind, our First Aid Kits are compact, durable, and chock-full of all the essentials you need to keep your crew going on your summer adventures. From colorful bandages (latex-free, PFSA-free, flex fabric) and non-sting (!!!) antiseptic wipes to sturdy tweezers, nosebleed plugs, tick removers, and blister cushions, this kit has everything you need to tackle whatever the summer throws your way – and then some!

Cuts and Scrapes:

First up on our summer survival list – cuts and scrapes. Whether it's a tumble at the playground or a scrape from exploring the great outdoors, our Kits have you covered. Simply clean the wound with one of the included non-sting, tear-free antiseptic wipes, apply a soothing dab of antibiotic ointment, and cover it with a sterile bandage in just the right size. Voila! Your little adventurer will be back on their feet in no time.


Next on the agenda – blisters. Nothing puts a damper on summer fun quite like a painful blister, but fear not; we include moleskin in our GoKits and SuperKits.
Don’t intentionally pop the blister, that can lead to infection. Instead, try to keep it intact for as long as possible to support healing. Use the included moleskin aka blister cushions and scissors to cut it to size, it will provide instant relief and protection for those tender spots, allowing your kiddos to keep on adventuring without missing a beat. 


Ah, the dreaded splinter—every mom's arch-nemesis. Use the sturdy metal tweezers (included in every KEEP>GOING First Aid Kit) to remove the splinter carefully. Then, clean the area with an antiseptic wipe and cover it with a bandage. Very small splinters can also be removed with the sticky side of a bandage. Easy peasy!


The unexpected nosebleed – a rite of passage for many kids, especially during the dry summer months. But fear not, because the KEEP>GOING First Aid Kit has just the solution to stop those nosebleeds in their tracks: nosebleed plugs! These handy little gadgets are designed to quickly and effectively stop nosebleeds by applying gentle pressure to the nostrils. Extra Mom Hack: lean your head forward (not back!). 

Sunburn Relief:

Last but certainly not least, let's talk about sunburn relief. We all know how easy it is for our little ones to get a little too much sun during those long summer days. You can provide instant relief for those rosy cheeks and noses with our Burn Cream (included in all our SuperKits and GoKits)! It will provide instant cooling relief, and don't forget to keep those kiddos hydrated!

So there you have it, your ultimate guide to handling minor mishaps with the KEEP> GOING First Aid Kit this summer. With this handy kit by your side, you'll be ready to tackle anything the sunny season throws your way, all while keeping your kiddos safe, happy, and ready for adventure. Here's to a summer full of fun, laughter, and endless memories – let's KEEP GOING together!
