If you haven't noticed, C gets sick quite a bit. A cold here, an ear infection there, the occasional no name virus...nothing ever too serious, but enough to warrant medicine and lots of rest. When he'd come down with something, we always found ourselves fumbling through his changing table looking for the thermometer and probe covers (only to realize we were out) or trying to figure out where the right dropper was for which medication. It was ridiculous.
Enter the tackle box.
That's right, a plain old tackle box (or Caboodle, if you will) to sort and store all of C's medicine and other baby things that tend to go rouge in drawers and cabinets.
On top, we put Advil and Tylenol (next to their corresponding droppers), nose related things (sucker, saline, Vicks), and teething stuff since those get used most. Then, the thermometer with the probe covers, extra droppers, and tummy related things (gripe water, Pedialyte packets, and pro-biotics) underneath. In the bottom is all of the other random things - Boogie Wipes, extra snot suckers, sunblock, extra unopened medicine, and the pouch we use when we travel.
It may seem like organization over kill, but this has been a life saver. Everything we would ever need in the middle of the night to soothe a screaming baby all in one place, clearly labeled.
We had this tackle box sitting around, but I can only imagine that they would be easy to find at one of the big box stores. Give it a try - its super helpful!
