Our family is currently in self-isolation, we’re trying to do what we can to flatten the curve and to keep our families safe. During the last 3 decades, we never experienced anything like this. I only remember the 2003 black out.
When you have a young family, you’re probably wondering what do I need to stock up on? I’ve compiled a list based that can help you stock up.
- 1 month’s worth – also think larger sizes if your kid in in-between sizes
- If your baby is still on formula I would try to keep at least 1-2 months worth of formula at home. And I would also consider keeping some powdered formula as a back up.
- Take a look at online delivery options on Amazon or well.ca
- If your baby is under 6 months, I would try to purchase some sleepers in larger sizes
- If anyone in your family is on medication, see how you can store extra at home
- Tylenol / Infant Tylenol
- Produce that last (Potatoes, butternut squash, acorn squash, apples, oranges)
- Frozen and canned fruits and veggies
- Frozen meats
- Water (who knows – might need it)
- Fruit pouches
- Shelf stable snacks
Other household goods
- Hand sanitizer
- Sanitizing wipes
- These are two things I wished I purchased before they were sold out everywhere
- Toilet paper – within reason!
- Hand soap
- Sanitary products
During this time, it’s best to stay home. Take a look at delivery options.
There are a number of grocery stores that offer delivery. And with the age of Amazon, you can find a lot of your essential items online.
