Medicine Kit.

I found this great article on Medical Kits for Children.  Here is what they say you should have on hand for your baby's most common illnesses.

Pain relievers: Tylenol and Panadol. The (CPS) Canadian Paediatric Society recommends parents use these drugs only for pain or fever greater that 38.5'C.  If your baby has a fever consult a doctor. Babies under 3 month with a fever should be taken to....,
a doctor immediately.

Rash Creams: Doctors recommend simple barrier creams such as Zinc Oxide to help with diaper rash. If baby has an extreme condition seek medical attention.

Antibiotic Ointment: Only Follow Doctor's Advice.
Causes of Baby Reflux

Saline Drops: Salt water drops help soften mucus and can be helpful for babies who's stuffy noses make feeding and breathing difficult. Used drops that contain saline only. 

Electrolyte Solution: CPS recommends that parents have oral rehydration solution on hand in case gastroenteritis, in order to prevent dehydration due to excessive vomiting or diarrhea.  The solution is Water, slat and sugar and can be bough at most drug stores.  Seek medical help if vomiting and diarrhea persist.
