the next thing i did was to take off Pradyot's jacket as soon as we were in the care and hand him a lollipop.... that hepled. immensely. every time we were headed for a drive i would let Pradyot pick up a lollipop. the first few times i limited his choice of flavours to sour-apple and oranges. but then i realized all of them are tangy enough.. so now i keep a supply of lollipops in the car and simply let him choose from the packet once we are inside... (making the choice also keeps him engaged for a while :)).
but then he gets bored of things too fast. so for back up, i have started carrying apples with me these days. apples that are slightly sour.. that helps too. moreover it feels much better to hand him apples than candies. so now we have options and we are both doing good.
and as for me i have started carrying ginger cookies coated with lemon marmalade and honey whenever we are headed for a long drive. these definitely help. also its nice to munch on something warm and gingery every once in a while....
Did you ever have to deal with motion sickness ? If so, what did you do? I'll love to hear.
