1、 Babies under 1 year old: Don’t take motion sickness medication
Babies may experience motion sickness mainly due to the sensitivity of the balance system. The bumpy driving of vehicles can easily increase the excitability of baby’s vestibular organs, affect neurological and digestive functions, and cause symptoms such as irritability and nausea. In addition, insufficient sleep, gastrointestinal problems, headaches and colds can also easily cause motion sickness.
When traveling, in order to prevent motion sickness, some parents will buy motion sickness pills at pharmacies for their babies to take. However, experts specifically emphasize that motion sickness medication has a certain impact on the development of the human nervous system. Therefore, it is absolutely not recommended to take motion sickness medication orally for babies under 1 year old. Even for babies over 1 year old, it is necessary to pay attention to rational medication. If medication is necessary, it is best to take the medication prescribed by a pediatrician for your baby.
