Vomiting or Nausea in Children

Your child's symptoms may be due to motion sickness.

Here are some ideas:

  • If possible, make sure your child is sitting high enough to see the horizon.

  • Open the windows for a breeze.

  • Pack light, salty snacks like pretzels, and have your child nibble on them if he feels nauseated.

If none of this helps, call your pediatrician to discuss medications your child might take.
