My little guy is having a hard time with car rides in Park Ridge. I think since he hasn’t been in the car in so long it is now hard for him again. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Sick within 5 minutes. Has anyone used these glasses successfully? I don’t want to give him Dramamine everyday!

Is he in the middle of the car so he can stare out the windshield? I haven’t used the glasses.

Center seat in the back to look straight out the window. I do use Dramamine for longer rides too. I also recommend the pressure point bracelets. my little one likes those. Never tried the glasses. sorry.

I feel your pain, as a grandmother my two grandchildren get carsick all the time they can barely make it from their house to our house which is 6 miles. I think it’s a hereditary thing are I used to get carsick and two of my three children get carsick. we could hardly go to the post office were one of them wasn’t throwing up. I remember hearing something about a bracelet they could wear that would help I haven’t looked into it I don’t think my daughter has either but it might be worth it. Good Luck!

I used to get car sick when I was little and looking down and not outside helped a lot!

I suffered from car sickness as a child and to this day. I notice my kids will get sick sometimes too. Tips: Sitting in the middle facing straight ahead. Look at something far away. Do not read a book! Maybe for this generation do not look at an iPad with e reading. My kids seam fine watching videos, but not reading. Car sickness for me happens in the back seat even as an adult. I either drive or drive shot gun. I have never heard about these glasses. I just read one review and sounds like it’s worth a try. Keep us updated and maybe I’ll get a pair to keep in the car.

I bought these for my husband this summer. Yes! They worked! Nothing else has. Just try not to laugh when he puts them on!

Make sure he doesn’t drink milk right before getting in the car and if you have seats way in the back put him closer up

I used to get sick as a kid. You don't look out a side window, just straight ahead. Front seat, No reading.

I have not used them personally but know someone who has and it worked wonders for her (an adult not a kid).

Omg. I feel for you! My daughter could not make it to the grocery store. I would try these. Even if it is a placebo effect. Tell him they work? I just taught her breathing exercises. She had it since birth. Technology helps:)

We used the compression wrist bands for my daughter and they worked very well.

I had a motion sickness for years. It gets better with age. Front seat and closing eyes always worked best for me. Smooth ride without sudden stops and go , helps a lot.

If these work, or “looking” differently out of windows help then there very well may be a visual (not eyesight) problem. I am an optometrist and have seen countless cases of car sickness that have a visual component. I’d be happy to take a look. www. prvisioncare. com

Hi Elizabeth! I would look into sea bands, as suggested by others. I'm an Acupuncturist, and the bands stimulate an acupuncture point referred to as Pericardium 6, which helps alleviate any type of nausea. In the meantime, you can also massage this point. If you have any questions about placement of the band or how to locate the point, I would be happy to help!

Yes. Someone at work just got them from her husband and she said it's the first time in years that she's been able to enjoy a car ride. I told my sister to get a pair for my niece. She has the same proble.

Pressure point bands and Can the child see out the side window ? My daughter use to have terrible motion sickness until she was tall enough to see out a window.

A Vision Therapist might also be worth looking into. this can treat the potential root of the cause. Or a Physical Therapist who specializes in treating Vertigo. they will assess for cause and address the issues from an inner ear and/or visual perspective.

Seabands! They are SOOO awesome. No medicine. Just a little plastic tab that sits on accunpunture site of wrists. Love love these. Under $20 and sold in most pharmacies, Target, etc near Dramamine.

When my little guy started getting car sick on long rides, we used sea bands (I ordered them on Amazon). I also used them during pregnancy and they worked great!
