At the weekend, or in case of a small holiday, I want to take my children to the nearby city for a pleasant parent-child tour. Nitrogen, the thought that children will get carsick makes their faces turn white. Who is in the mood to go out and wave when the child is so miserable? But it’s impossible to just let children play near home. What causes children to get carsick? Is there any way for children to avoid carsickness?
▶ Causes of carsickness in children
1. Children’s own factors
No matter how stable the means of transportation are, it is inevitable that there will be imbalance. If the baby’s balance ability is poor, when the vision is inconsistent with the sense of balance, he will get carsick;
Children’s physical discomfort, such as respiratory diseases, also increases the risk of carsickness;
If the family has a genetic gene for carsickness, or if they eat too much or don’t eat anything at all before taking the bus, children are also prone to carsickness.
In addition, if children often get carsick, they will have psychological pressure when taking transportation. They keep thinking about the previous carsickness, and the result is really carsick.
2. External factors that cannot be ignored
When the vehicle is always bumpy, the internal environment is full of bad smell, or reading in a mobile car, it is easy to get carsick.
▶ What about carsickness
Carsickness usually occurs in children aged 3 to 12. Some children will no longer get carsick when they grow up, and some will still get carsick when they grow up. The simplest and crudest solution is: if you get carsick, take more cars and don’t get dizzy if you adapt. However, I can’t bear to let the children of ruanmeng undergo such “torture”.
1. Keep the air clear
Smoking is prohibited on public transport, especially buses. When taking the bus, parents can open the windows to keep the air fresh. If it’s a self driving trip, stop at the right time, take the child out of the car for a walk and get some air. When the child’s car sickness and discomfort dissipate, start again. At this time, the child has also adapted to the driving state and is not easy to get carsick.
2. Let the child sit in a stable seat
Carsickness is not only for cars, but also for all means of transportation. Since bumpy transportation will increase the risk of carsickness, let the child sit in a stable position. If it is an aircraft, do not choose the position of the wing or tail; If you take a boat, you’d better sit in the middle of the boat and avoid the bow and stern.
3. Properly distract children’s attention
Before traveling, prepare toys that your child likes. Otherwise, parents can talk more about topics of interest with your child to distract him and make him ignore the fact that the car is walking or bumpy. Of course, children can also sleep with their eyes closed. When the child is sleeping, he must also wear a seat belt. If there is no seat belt, pay attention to fix him. It is important to prevent carsickness, and safety is more important. In addition, avoid children reading or watching TV in the car.
4. Pay attention to controlling children’s diet
Eat one hour before taking the bus. Don’t let the child overeat or have an empty stomach. It’s enough to eat a little properly. For an hour, the food is almost digested and will not feel hungry. At this time, taking a car can avoid nausea caused by bumps. Stick a carsick sticker or a piece of ginger on the child’s navel to help prevent carsick.
