Brief Answer:
List provided.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through the details and understand your concern. The medicines to keep handy are as follows:
* Colicaid Drops - 0.8 ml to be given in case of excessive and unexplained crying.
* Calshine P (Vitamin D) 0.5 ml to be given daily on regular basis.
* If your child has fever with temperature more than 100°F, you need to give paracetamol (Crocin or Calpol) to it bring down. Also use tepid sponging. Just do not let the temperature rise high. I do not think that any other precaution is needed.
* ORS (oral rehydration solution) to be given if the child has loose motions.

I do not suppose any other medicine is likely to be needed.

Let me know if I could help further.
