A word on Travel Sickness


Many young children between the ages of 2 and 12 are susceptible to travel or motion sickness when traveling in cars, boats, trains or planes. Symptoms include nausea, throwing up, headache and dizziness. It is caused by the incessant movement of the transport thereby affecting the body's balancing system located in the inner ear. Other reasons include too full or too empty a stomach, anxiety and excitement, stuffy surroundings and some particular smell that doesn't go too well with your child. Your child may turn pale and go very quiet before showing further symptoms. A good tip will be to avoid heavy, greasy foods, fizzy drinks, milk and chocolate but in its place opt for light meals before the trip. Pack some anti-nausea medications approved by your doctor. If you are traveling by road, keep the car well-ventilated by keeping a window open and avoid smoking in the interior. Avoid games that involve coloring or reading since focusing on near objects aggravates the situation and direct your child's attention to things outside the car in the distance. Keep spare clothes handy.




Now that you are set to Go... A gentle reminder -don't have expectations when it comes to the provisions you will need for your kid and a change in behavior and you won't be disappointed. With careful planning, a good checklist and packing according to that list, your trip should go problem-free, at least in areas within your control. The rest will all depend on an open mind so keep it open!
