There's nothing like having a kid who gets carsick. It's not fun, believe me. But being prepared is the best way to avoid an on the road disaster. It can make travel easier for you and more comfortable for your child. Plus hopefully keep your car cleaner by avoiding any on-the-road disasters.

You probably already know what to look for when it comes to car sickness symptoms, but here's a refresher:

  • pale skin
  • feeling uneasy
  • cold sweats
  • dizziness
  • increased saliva
  • nausea
  • vomiting


Even if you're child has never been car sick, you never know when it's going to strike unexpectedly for the first time. Having a few things on hand just in case really is a good idea.


Here are some of the best car sick remedies for kids out there today.

Kids motion sickness medicine is a smart choice if you know your little one gets sick in the car. Most of these products work really well, and it's a huge plus that you can give it to your child before you leave to help avoid any car sickness at all. One of the most popular is Dramamine for Kids. . Queasy Pops are another good choice. You can get them both very inexpensively at your local retailer or online at Amazon.

Motion Sickness Patch  These are safe for kids up to four years old. They are easy to apply and painless to remove. A natural herb treatment, this is a great option if your child doesn't like taking medicine. Your child actually wears the patch behind their ear. You should apply it 10 minutes before travel. They can last for up to 3 days.

Anti-Nausea Wrist Band   Kids will love these fashionable wrist bands from Sea Band to help combat nausea from motion sickness. You can get one band or a set with two bands. They help you combat all forms of travel sickness and can be used again and again, making them very cost-effective. They are great toddler motion sickness bands and work well on small children.

I know people use essential oils for motion sickness. I am by no means an expert in this area so please do your research before using any essential oils to treat any ailment.


Vomit bag  Unfortunately sometimes your child could still get car sick, and when they do, it's better if you're prepared. My middle daughter used to get carsick a lot. I always kept a plastic bag on hand and near her just in case, but I did worry that there might be a hole I missed and that the bag would leak. So having a vomit bag on hand would have definitely given me a sense of relief.

I hope you find this list of car sick remedies for kids to be useful.
