My kids were blessed to get Tim’s good looks, Sebastian got Tim’s calm demeanor and my shyness, and Madelyn got her ‘happy crazy’ emotions from me, and motion sickness which can be a bummer because we love to travel.  Travelling was easy with Sebastian.  We grabbed paper, crayons, toys, snacks, a drink, and off we went.  With Madelyn we’ve had to create an entire road trip departure routine that includes, but is not nearly limited to taking Dramamine® for Kids.

Over the years (she’s 10 years old now), I’ve had a couple of ah-ha moments during her bouts of road trip or amusement park motion sickness.  One, was she was less likely to suffer motion sickness if we had cool air circulating in the car the entire road trip.  The second most substantial ah-ha moment related to Madelyn’s motion sickness was “gosh, we ought to have a car-sick kit in the car”.

I’ve put all sorts of things in our car-sick kit over the years.  It took a few years to figure out exactly what I needed in the kit and here it is…

What’s inside our motion sickness kit:

  • Dramamine® for Kids
  • Dramamine® Non-Drowsy Naturals – for myself
  • Hairband – to hold hair back when needed
  • Pain medicine – Madelyn sometimes gets a headache on road trips
  • One-time use toothbrushes
  • Toilet seat covers
  • One-time use zipper bags
  • Tissues
  • Moist wipes
  • Lip balm
  • All inside a clear, sturdy zipper bag so contents are easily view-able

You never know when motion sickness will strike so I transfer our car-sick kit to whatever vehicle we travel in, and take it in my handbag when we go to an amusement park or on a boat.  I was so glad I didn’t forget to take Dramamine® for Kids on our recent cruise!  I wasn’t sure how the movement of the ship was going to affect Madelyn and while given she is affected by motion sickness easily in the car, the ship didn’t seem to have the same affect so she was generally well with the rocking of the boat.   However, I quickly pulled out the chewable grape flavor Dramamine® for Kids a couple of nights when we really felt the swells.  Madelyn felt better within minutes.

Dramamine for KidsWe trust Dramamine® for Kids because it works for Madelyn and is the only medicated motion sickness relief product formulated just for children ages 2-12 from the #1 Pharmacist recommended brand.  If for some reason she doesn’t take Dramamine® before we head out on a road trip and then gets motion sick, it’s comforting to know what Dramamine® for Kids treats symptoms of motion sickness on the spot and prevents nausea, dizziness, vomiting and queasiness.
