There is nothing worse than having to clean vomit off the back seat of the car because your child’s stomach couldn’t handle the motions, especially when you won't be arriving at your destination for another few hours.
And no matter how far you roll down the windows or how many fragrant baby wipes you use to clean up, the smell lingers for a long, long time.
Unfortunately, as many mums already know, motion sickness is not just confined to car journeys – boats, planes and trains can trigger unsettled tummies, usually at the worst possible time ever!
But what actually causes travel sickness?
An unsettled stomach happens when the body, the inner ear and the eyes send conflicting signals to the brain. This usually happens when you are in a car, boat or airplane; from inside a ship’s cabin, your inner ear may sense rolling motions that your eyes cannot see.
Thankfully, however, there is something that you can do to help your little one.
CaldeKids Travel Pops
come in the form of a tasty apple flavoured lollipop that contains two natural extracts, both of which have a positive effect on the digestive system.
With healthy ginger extracts that help settle little tummies and peppermint extract that regulates digestion, CaldeKids Travel Pops promise a smooth journey for young travellers.
Is there anything else that mums can do to complement the Travel Pops?
Get them to keep their eyes on the horizon
Don’t let them read
Get them to rest their head against the seat back, to keep it still
Turn the air vents toward their face if possible
Have them avoid salty foods and dairy products before they travel
CaldeKids advises that you ensure your child takes Travel Pops approximately 30 minutes before travelling.
CaldeKids Travel Pops are distributed by ClonMedica and come in packs of three; available in good pharmacies nationwide, RRP €3.99.
