No one ever wants to think of their children getting sick or injured, but unfortunately its an unavoidable part of life.
In the U.S., more than 23 million children under the age of 15 end up in the emergency room each year (National Safe Kids, 2014.) Three emergency physicians recognized that a great number of these emergencies could be handled at home IF parents were armed with the right tools, such as easy-to-read instructions for treating minor injuries, and the same hospital-grade materials that emergency physicians use. These three mommy friends who have seven kids between them, teamed up to form 3MD|three mommy doctors and have created two medical-grade first-aid kits, babySTAT and kidSTAT.
Each first-aid kit contains full-sized medical-grade supplies, many of which are not directly available to the consumer market. The kits also come with easy-to-follow instructions for use in the primary categories of injury, and “red flag” information that advises parents when the injury is treatable at home, or when it is worthy of more urgent medical attention.
babySTAT is designed with your baby’s first year in mind. Organized into symptom-based categories: ouchy, cranky, and yucky, this kit filled with 58 items prepares you for the most common baby disasters. babySTAT contains almost everything a new parent needs to stay as calm and sane as possible during the first 12 months. This is such a wonderful baby shower gift to give or receive.
Targeted for active toddlers and kids, kidSTAT is equipped with hospital-grade products to treat the most common childhood emergencies: aches+sprains, bites+burns, and cuts+scrapes. kidSTAT has easy-to-follow, first-aid instructions to reassure you when your child is in distress.
- 91 items

While I hope I don’t need to use my kidSTAT anytime soon, I feel so much more well-prepared now that I have one. It’s very comforting to have all of these products all in one compact kit.
