If you’re looking for a list of emergency supplies that are essential for your baby then you’ve come to the right place.
If you happen to live somewhere where hurricanes may strike, like where I live, then you should always be prepared.
And if you live somewhere where you may encounter other potential threats you should still be prepared. Mainly if you have a baby!
In case of an emergency you know everybody is going to go crazy (shopping wise). Everybody is going to run to the store and buy everything from the shelves.
Trust me I’ve been through this!
And if you happen to arrive too late to the grocery store meaning the shelves are already empty you feel ‘awkward’, at least I did.
You don’t want to be like that (like me trying to fill up my gas tank when all the gas stations were already out of gas).
Instead, you want to be WISE and PRAGMATIC.
But I know you are already like that because you are a MOM and moms have superpowers, yes they do!
And because since I’ve had my baby I’m always kind of one step ahead of the game (and because I had to prepare for hurricane) I made a quick short yet essential list of baby items that are a must to keep your little one safe, clean and happy in case of an emergency.
You can read more about baby essentials in Tried And True BabyList.
And think that whatever you buy and how much you purchase it’s going to end up being used anyways. So don’t think you’re wasting money if you buy two diaper boxes instead of one.
It’s never too much when it comes to the safety of your baby.
Here it is: emergency preparedness kit – items you need for your baby
*Non-perishable items – everything you buy has to last for at least 3 days
- Water – ideally baby water, but in this situation any kind is good
- Formula – infant/toddler 2-3 containers, I use Similac Toddler
- Milk bottles and sippy cups
- Wipes – a ton, I’m not even joking. These are good for anything, both you and your baby
- Diapers – I bought 1 large box because I already had one at home, my choice Pampers Swaddlers
- Diaper change pad – I love this
- Diaper cream – buy a couple. Burt’s Bees is the best out there and you can read more in Natural Remedy For Diaper Rash
- Baby toothbrush
- Medications – Motrin/Tylenol in case your little one runs a fever (make sure you have a thermometer also)
- Snacks – either teething snacks, veggie straws or cheese crackers
- Baby food – whatever is left is going to end up in her lunch box for daycare anyway
- Clean clothes – I like to do the laundry right before the ‘hurricane strikes’ let’s say because in case the power goes down for a few days at least my laundry basket is not packed with dirty clothes
- Clean crib sheets – I always have an extra clean set
- Toys – put a few to make sure your baby stays entertained
*Important items for the household:
- First aid kit
- Phone charger
- Non-perishable food
- Personal hygiene items
