If it looks like a diaper bag, feels like a diaper bag and functions like a diaper bag, then it’s probably a diaper bag. Right?


Because we live in a dangerous world where one never knows when tragedy could strike, it’s always a good idea to carry emergency medical equipment. Active shooters, random acts of violence, car accidents and so much more are all things that could cause serious harm to people.

This is why we always carry some type of medical equipment wherever we go.  

In this article, we’ll show you one way to add a first-aid kit that could address some of the injuries suffered during a traumatic event. Having something like this could literally be the difference between life and death.

In a diaper bag that’s with us everywhere we go outside the homestead, we carry more serious first-aid items normally not found in your standard off-the-shelf first-aid kit. 

By carrying this stuff in a more discrete bag, there’s virtually no attention drawn to us. Little do folks at church know they’re sitting next to people prepared to respond to gunshot wounds (or other serious injuries). 

So, instead of putting diapers where they’re supposed to go, we’ve opted to do something else;  but don’t worry – we’re still prepared for the active poop explosion, too. Ha!

In our response kit, we have the following:

Trauma shears.

Israeli bandage.

Latex gloves.


Small QuikClot clotting sponge (25g).

Large QuikClot clotting sponge (50g).

Adventure Medical Kits Trauma Pak that has the following: 

  • Small QuikClot clotting sponge (25g).
  • 5” x 9” trauma pad.
  • Nitrile gloves.
  • 2” x 26” of duct tape
  • Triangular bandage.
  • 2x sterile gauze (2” x 2”).
  • 2x sterile gauze (4” x 4”). 
  • 3” conforming gauze bandage.
  • Antiseptic wipes.
  • First-aid instructions.
  • Resealable bag for bio-waste and sucking chest wounds.

Another thing we keep with us is a CPR mask because you never know when you might need one.

The thing to keep in mind here is this diaper bag is just one example of what people have with them throughout the week. Other examples could include, but aren’t limited to, gym bags, purses, brief cases, and backpacks – all of which are capable of carrying first-aid items.  

If you’re on a budget, the pack from Adventure Medical Kits can be a great solution and will cover a large variety of serious wounds. Best of all, it’s very compact.

For very little money you can start acquiring this type of equipment in order to increase your chances of surviving a serious medical injury.

No matter what you have, however, don’t underestimate the importance of learning first-aid techniques. It’s a skill that’ll come in handy throughout your entire life.
