Travel Sickness

(4 Posts)

Hi all,

My kiddies (age 8 and 4) suffer with travel sickness and I usually give them tablets two hours before travel which has always stopped the sickness.

I have however just bought some travel sickness wrist bands, as I would prefer to use these instead of medication, and was wondering if anyone has any experience with these bands.

Are they as effective as the tablets?

Thanks in advance.

Hi - I used the bands as a child and also for morning sickness and they never failed. Just make sure they are correctly positioned

I tried bands and anti sickness tablets and unfortunately neither worked for my DD. I have found sucking on a mint or hard sweet has helped, also no reading or screens as this just makes things worse

Having a large Tupperware or ice cream tub with a lid in the car, was the best advice I was given for car sickness emergencies. Helps to avoid leaks, mess and smells as you can put a lid on and contain things until you are able to stop.
