Mum reveals what she packs in her car ‘emergency kit’ – including suncream, crackers and blankets for her baby

A MUM has revealed everything she packs in her car “emergency kit” for her baby – and it is quite extensive. 

The Brisbane-based woman asked if she had missed anything from her stash that she had compiled “in case of an emergency”.

The woman’s whopping haul contained a first aid kit, snacks, water, a torch, tape and plastic bags. 

She had also packed spare clothes for her and her son, tampons, toiletries, towels, baby supplies and bug spray.

There were also blankets in case the family ended up stranded somewhere during the night. 

She added that she can’t keep cash in her car in ase people break in to steal it, saying: “Little teen criminals keep smashing the windows and stealing anything in the car. I got hit in August 2020.”

Many people praised her supplies saying the items she had collected were very handy.

One woman suggested a small knife could be used for cutting fruit and tape. 

And one woman from the SAS suggested cling film can be used as a bandage in an emergency. 

Another person wrote: “I would have a plastic dinner set which is always handy for an unexpected meal when out and about.”

A third joked that she could “never be this well prepared” and barely remembers her car keys. 

Some said the woman should be aware that cars can get too hot for some medications.

Budget Direct Insurance claims people should have an emergency car kit so they are “ready for the unexpected.”

They stated that this should include a torch, first-aid kit, a high-vis vest, water, toilet paper, a blanket, a lighter or matches and a contact book with important phone numbers.

They also said that “extremely well-hidden” cash can be added to the car. 

Other car essentials should include a tool kit, jack, jumper leads and fire extinguisher.
