What’s FSA Eligible For Babies & Kids?

For parents wielding a FSA-debit card, I’m sure the thought of “what can I spend for my baby/child?” crosses their mind. In this post, I want to share a few interesting FSA eligible items I’ve stumbled across during my adventures of using my flexible spending account. Most of these won’t require a doctor’s prescription, but some of them *may*, so always check with your FSA administrator’s website (mine’s to be completely sure.

Baby Movement Monitor

Who knew a device that tracks your baby’s movement could be FSA eligible? This one by Snuza Go! looks pretty cool. Does it work well? I’d like to know.

Kid Nasal Cleansing

Kid having trouble breathing? Nasal cleansing might be useful to clear nasal passages. This nasal cleansing system designed for kids might be FSA eligible as nasal cleansers usually are.

A saline nasal gel might also be helpful to moisturize with aloe.

With both of these products, you might want to check with your FSA administrator to see if a doctor’s prescription is needed.

Kid/Baby Thermometers

You’ll need this when they get sick, so why not put your FSA to work? This ear thermometer from Braun looks pretty fancy (the design looks cool, as a plus).

And this Bluetooth-enabled, wearable thermometer for babies really caught my attention.

It’s got a smartphone app that goes with it and all! I’d double-check the eligibility on this one just because it’s so high-tech, but thermometers are generally FSA eligible so there’s a good chance. Check with your FSA admin.

Kids Hot/Cold Packs

Hot/cold packs? Pretty mundane stuff, but perfect for your FSA account to spend on. When your kid gets a boo-boo, why not make it friendly for them with this cute re-usable bear hot/cold pack

Kid/Baby Sunscreen

Sure, it’s a pretty common item to use with your FSA, sunscreen is. But check out the variety I’ve seen recently for your kids/babies. Remember, sunscreen needs to be at least SPF-30 and broad-spectrum to be FSA eligible.

Ok, so I know nothing about breast pumps, admittedly, but they are FSA eligible. Ok, I know something, there are manual ones and electric ones. That’s all I know. 🙂
