Preventing motion sickness

  1. Motion sickness is a motion sickness. Seasickness and air sickness fall into the same category. The disease usually occurs in children between the ages of two and ten. The cause is probably an 'immaturity' of the vestibular organ in the brain. That balance organ gets a bit confused, because the eyes register movement, while the body is still. The result is nausea, headache and vomiting.

Recognizing motion sickness

  1. Because motion sickness is a motion sickness, it can also occur in the train, on a boat, in an airplane, on a moped and sometimes even on a horse. Children (and adults) turn white, sweat and report nausea. It usually ends with severe vomiting and a headache. The complaints disappear when the movement stops.

How do you prevent motion sickness?

  1. Sensitivity will always play a role, but there are some ways to reduce the risk.

Where will you sit

  1. In the car you provide a place from which a child can look into the distance. If necessary, you can raise a child seat. Looking ahead is better than looking to the side, move the seat (if possible) to the center. Adults are best in the front, people rarely even get carsick behind the wheel. A good place on the plane is just above the wings. Only sit on benches in the train or bus with which you can drive forward. Also try to sit as far forward as possible on the bus so that you can see through the windshield. A boat seems to move the least in the center of the aft deck. A cruise is possible. After about three days the balance organ is used to the movement and you are no longer ill.

What else can you do?

  1. Sufficient fresh air often works wonders. Do not smoke in the car, rather take an extra break before that. Lower the stove. Choose highways, or at least roads with as few curves as possible, winding roads are disastrous. Drive calmly when you have someone in the car with motion sickness. Accelerate slowly and carefully through the bends.

Drink and eat

  1. Do not drive with an empty stomach, but do not eat while driving only during a break. Do not bring fatty food or sour drinks. Give dry biscuits, crackers, sweet lemonade, and sweet fruit. No soda, although some adults think that a glass of Coke works wonders. Do not drink alcohol and coffee.

It's a long ride for kids

  1. A holiday destination is not always right next door. Try to drive at night as much as possible, so that children can sleep in the car. Reading, drawing and making puzzles aggravate the complaints. Games where children have to look far forward are possible. Bring a supply of reading CDs and lots of music.

First Aid

  1. Travel sickness cannot always be prevented. Bring a set of clean clothes and a sturdy plastic bag for children. (a bucket takes up so much space) Also useful are a number of disposable washcloths, which you can get at a drugstore.


  1. There are medicines that can be taken to treat motion sickness. Almost all of them have a preventive effect, so they must be taken before the trip, once sick they no longer work. Most medications make you a little drowsy. Not all medicines are suitable for children, please consult the pharmacy. In addition to medicines, there are also wristbands on the market with a button, which gives you pressure on a "dimple" in the wrist. This would also prevent motion sickness.
