Hey there, fellow moms! We all know that when it comes to our little ones, boo-boos and minor mishaps are practically a rite of passage. Whether it's a scraped knee from an adventurous playground escapade or a tiny finger nick from an ambitious crafting session, we've all been there. That's why today, let's dive into a topic that might seem as ordinary as apple juice but is actually pretty fascinating – bandages! Here are four surprising things about bandages that every mom should know:

  1. Beyond the Plain Strips: A World of Choices

    Remember the good ol' days when bandages only came in beige? Well, those days are long gone! Say hello to our colorful array of bandage options that your kids will adore. From rainbows to emojis and even camo designs, there's a bandage out there for every little personality. These fun designs can turn tears into giggles and make the healing process a lot more enjoyable. So, consider picking up a box of these little wonders that can turn frowns upside down and match your First Aid Kit. 

  2. Size Matters – Not All Bandages Are Created Equal

    Raise your hand if you've ever tried to cover a kid-sized scrape with an adult-sized bandage. Guilty, right? But fear not, because there are bandages specifically designed for those tiny fingers and toes. Our adorable mini-bandages are perfect for little cuts and scrapes that are just a smidge too small for regular-sized ones. And trust me, the relief on your child's face when they see a bandage that's just their size? Priceless.

  3. Stick with Care: The Importance of Adhesive Quality

    Now, here's a surprising tidbit that many of us might not be aware of – not all adhesives are created equal. You see, some budget-friendly bandages might come with adhesive that doesn't exactly play nice with sensitive skin. Ever noticed your little one itching or developing a rash around the edges of a bandage? That could be due to a skin reaction caused by a cheap adhesive. It's always a good idea to invest in quality bandages - like flex-fabric bandages,  that are designed to be gentle on delicate skin. After all, we want to protect our little explorers without causing any unnecessary discomfort.

  1. Choose Clean: Some bandages contain PFAS chemicals 

    Bandages, essential tools in wound care, have come under scrutiny due to concerns regarding the presence of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) chemicals. PFAS are synthetic compounds known for their water and grease resistance, making them common in various consumer products. However, recent studies have raised alarms about potential health risks associated with PFAS exposure, including links to cancer and other adverse health effects. Given that bandages directly contact the skin, the presence of PFAS in their materials raises understandable concerns about potential absorption into the body. All our KEEP>GOING First Aid bandages are 100% PFAS free! 


The next time you're faced with a scraped knee or a bumped elbow, remember these facts. Because in the grand tapestry of motherhood, even the smallest details – like choosing the right adhesive – can make all the difference. Stay prepared, stay creative, and keep those hugs and kisses flowing, along with the bandages!
