While having a first-aid kit on hand at all times is a great idea, it's perhaps more so in the warmer weather months. Spring and summer, when you're outdoors more frequently and generally being more active, often bring more injuries — cuts, scrapes, bruises and bug bites topping the list of “owies” that may require the supplies found in a first-aid kit. So ensure you're ready for whatever ails your family with a well-stocked kit, making sure to throw out any expired products and replenish with new items as needed. Here is your first-aid checklist, courtesy of MomsWhoThink (and moms who have been there!).
