I was quite excited to review a pair for my eldest; he has started getting travelsick on the way to his weekly swimming lessons. It would not be so bad but time is limited, so stopping for him to have fresh air or to get rid of some vomit on the way often means we are running late and bless him he probably arrives in the pool a bit shell shocked from the rush.
So on Wednesday we tried him wearing his new and dandy blue Sea-Band wrist bands. His brother already sports the army variety, so this way they have their own unique look. He travelled fine there and back without any complaint of sickness. I am really pleased, no stopping, no panic just a pleasant car journey, arriving for his swimming lesson in plenty of time. He says they look cool and he will not get sick now. Not sure if its his new positive mental attitude or the power of pressure. But either way it got the desired result for everyone, so we are very happy!
Sea-Bands retail at £8.15 and are suitable for children 3+. I think this price is cheap considering how much travel sickness medicine costs. These will pay for themselves quite quickly and also being drug free, means your not having to give your children medicine unnecessarily, which pleases me no end. Plus they are so simple to use even I cannot get muddled up, just ensure that pressure is applied to the acupressure point on each wrist.
I bet these would also be prefect for morning sickness too. I wish I had the pair they kindly sent me back when I was pregnant with my two, I suffered quite badly with morning sickness both times and had to be very careful about what I ate to limit the sickness, a set of these wrist bands might have put me out of my misery and saved me from chain eating ginger biscuits…
I do not travel too badly in a car lately, so have yet to give mine a proper airing but I would love to use them on my next boat journey as I still get exceptionally motion sick from travel by sea. Many a holiday abroad has been spoiled by me hanging off the side of the boat giving the ocean the contents of my breakfast, lunch or dinner!
You can find out more about Sea-Band on their website including making online purchases. Alternatively Sea Band are also available at your local chemist, that’s where I bought the set my youngest owns.
