The last time I talked about motion sickness, I shared that I hadn’t suffered from it until I got a little bit older. As a kid I had been able to read in the car without any issues. Josh, on the other hand, never went through the being able to read in the car phase. Nope, he skipped right over that part and went straight to throwing up after long car rides.
We didn’t realize that he had this tendency at first. In fact, driving around was always a sure fire way to get him to fall asleep as a baby. Then there was this one day when he was about four. We had tickets to the EAA Air Adventure Show up in Oshkosh, about 90 minutes away. He had been looking forward to the show for weeks. Jay and my dad headed up to the show with Josh. He seemed to be doing great by the time they got there – well until they were just a few steps past the entrance and Josh hurled all over himself. Ugh.
That was kind of the turning point. From then on, we had to be really careful about planning long car rides. We even took to keeping a small bucket in the back seat – just in case. As you can imagine, we were pretty hesitant to plan any family road trips figuring if a 90 minute ride was an issue, a longer road trip would be a nightmare.
If you’ve ever been in the same boat, I’m happy to tell you about the only medicated motion sickness relief product formulated just for children ages 2-12, Dramamine® for Kids! Dramamine® for Kids treats symptoms of motion sickness on the spot and prevents nausea, dizziness, vomiting and queasiness. I love that it comes in a portable plastic case so we can keep it close no matter where our adventures take us. And the yummy grape taste means no complaints about taking it.
