A medicines bag for children intended for use when travelling has been launched by the makers of Spilly Spoon non-spill medicine spoons.
The Ouch Pouch contains a range of medical ‘essentials’ in a thermally insulated kit bag as follows:

•    Z-Gel - an arnica-based soothing first aid gel
•    plasters for children
•    sterile wipers
•    Mucky Mitts hand sanitiser
•    a forehead thermometer
•    a 60ml medicine bottle to carry one or two days’ liquid medicine
•    a Spilly Spoon.

There is also space for storing sachets and an EpiPen if necessary. Name tags can be personalised if medicines for more than one child are needed.ouch-pouch-contents

Philippa Le Boutillier designed the Ouch Pouch based on her own experience “as a mum who was sick of washing gunky bed sheets and also never having medical essentials in one place when travelling.

“The Ouch Pouch is designed to make a parent’s life easier whilst on the move. Which is a saving grace, as any busy parent will concur. Often the simplest ideas are the best and often overlooked.”

The RRP is £14.99.
