There's nothing that quite spoils a car trip like your child having travel sickness - believe me, I know!
Fed up with having to constantly take changes of clothes in the car for every little excursion, or swinging frantically into lay-bys and scrabbling with the seat straps before it was too late, we decided to try Sea-Bands. These are a drug-free way to combat motion sickness and work using an acupressure point on the wrist and can be used by children from 3 years old up to adulthood.
They work very well on Ruby. We took them with us on our trip to Cornwall recently (a 5 hour drive), and she didn't feel ill at all. In fact, the only time we forgot to take them with us on a trip to the beach that holiday, she was violently sick.
As well as travel sickness, Sea-Bands can help with pregnancy related morning sickness. As there are n drugs and no side effects they are the perfect choice when expecting.
Unlike other sickness remedies, there's no best before date, you can use them over and over and they start to work immediately. Simple to wear, just follow the instructions on the pack to find the correct point on your wrist.
I have two pairs to giveaway - one children's and one adult pack.
