Little comforts can ease the stress for a parent when their child is in the intimidating setting of a pediatric hospital. Show your friend that you’re thinking about them and their well-being by sending this survival kit, with items curated specifically for the hospital setting.
Assorted items include the following:
Non-slip socks when they want to take off their shoes on the cold, slippery tile floors.
A journal and pen for keeping track of their child’s medical details, and for keeping personal notes.
A thermal mug for morning coffee and staying hydrated with water throughout the day (water flavoring also included)
Breath mints, because…well…you know. Clean teeth and fresh breath are not at the top of the list when your child is hospitalized.
Face wipes and lip balm also help refresh.
Coffees, teas, sweeteners, creamer and stir sticks for those early mornings when the machines beeped and caregivers visited throughout the night.
A bag to carry the extras from room to room. That room may be in ICU, and then off to the waiting room…and then recovery…and then back to ICU…and then to a regular room…
