Kids and Winding Roads

My kids got used to taking road trips when they were only a few months old. My mom and I used to take the babies (twins) hiking in Banff when they were around 3 months old. It was a great way to get away! Luckily in my neck of the woods there aren’t too many windy roads to worry about.

When the kids were 18 months we found ourselves on a winding road in Kaui (Hawaii). The road wound up the mountain and back down. About half way down my son starting throwing up in the backseat from motion sickness. Luckily my mom was there and she could sense something was about to ‘come up’ and was able to minimize the mess with a well placed plastic bag!

I’ve heard that the Road to Hana (Maui, Hawaii) is known for lots of twists and turns. That is one road that will be a little less travelled when we are there in a few weeks. It got me thinking though- there must be some home remedies or tricks to cure motion sickness for kids.
