  • Vaseline to protect from diaper rash
 
  • Antibacterial ointment for cuts and for scrapes
 
  • Child-safe sunscreen lotion
 
  • Nasal aspirator bulb, and saline drops for stuffy noses
 
  • Mild liquid soap (not necessary to be antibacterial)
 
  • A dropper, oral needle-less syringe, or calibrated spoon for administering medicines
 
The nice to have:
 
  • Insect repellent
 
  • Rubbing alcohol to clean thermometers
