where do I get a good one (and what should it have in it)?

If you do a search for my thread titled My First Aid Kit let me down you will get all the ideas I was given. I now have a well stocked first aid kit in my car as well as my house. HTH.

IF you've done a course - pocket mask/ambumask for mouth-to-mask ventillation.

Sticky plasters - the strip ones less useful than individually wrapped as can't be kept sterile so don't last as long.
Non-sticky dressings (eg telfa) for wounds.
Micropore tape to attatch the above, +/- steristrips/bandages.
Savlon - cream or spray
Compeed blister plasters - they really are the best.
Triangular bandage or 2
Scissors, safety pins, gloves (latex easiest to wear if noone in the house allergic, the good non-latex ones are pricey+++)
Phonecard with about £2 on it - just in case your emergency strikes when your mobile's also knackered.
Pen/pencil and notebook.

FOR THE CAR - add a reflective triangle, fluorescent tabard/coat and a warm/waterproof layer.

Thanks both, I had thought about one for the house but it never occurred to me to carry one in the car. Looks like I will be buying a lot of kit!

There is a good chance that that was good advice but impossible to read when posted without paragraphs.

Benghiman thanks for all the info, have used teas tree and lavender in the past but DS I'd only 14 mo so will hold off on using them on him for now.
