We are flying long haul in 2 weeks and have a just 1 year old and a 3 year old. The 3 year old is great and has flown lots but the 1 year old was very sick on the out and return journey of the only flight she's been on, in November. It was pretty bumpy both ways, and a pretty small plane, so hopefully she'll be fine, she is in the car. However, anyone have any idea if there is any travel sickness medication you can give to one year olds? I thought of the wrist bands but there is no way she'll keep them on!!

Thanks

Not that I'm aware of. sad I've spoken to more than one pharmacist.

If you are into aromatherapy at all, peppermint oil is a good scent to calm an unsettled stomach. You would need to research the safest way to use it with such a young child, though. My DC are older and sniff a hankie with a drop of oil on.
