Kid travel nausea, vomit

My 20 months old daughter vomits during travelling through car... It is almost every time we travel out of city during day time by car... She also loses appetite n ends up eating few fruit pieces only which she ultimately ends up vomiting once the journey starts... Her daily food routine gets disturbed during the journey, through out the trip and few days after the trip too.

hello, Motion sickness is the feeling you get when the motion you sense with your inner ear is different from the motion you visualize. It is a common condition that occurs in some people who travel by car, train, airplane or boat. Many people suffer from this condition if they ride on a roller coaster or other similar amusement park rides. Motion sickness progresses from a feeling of uneasiness to sweating and/or dizziness. This is usually quickly followed by nausea and/or vomiting.Although pregnant women and children are more susceptible to motion sickness, almost anyone that is traveling is at risk for motion sickness Treatment for motion sickness can consist of medical treatment, simple changes in the environment (for example, sitting by the open window of a car), over-the-counter (OTC) medications and for some people, home remedies may be effective,herbs such as ginger, peppermint, and tea as home remedies for motion sickness,Over-the-counter medications, and occasionally prescription medications, are used to relieve and in some cases prevent motion sickness, consult your doctor for prescription.
