If you’re worried about car-sick kids these school holidays, you’re in luck. Long seen as the holy grail in sea-sickness prevention, Sea Legs is making a move from the boat to the back seat. It seems more kiwi mums are realizing just how effective Sea Legs can be in helping prevent a car-sickness calamity as well.
“Sea Legs was never supposed to be just for boats”, says Marketing Manager Katherine Reardon. “It was always good for any type of motion sickness – car, boat, plane or train. People just didn’t know you could use it this way”
It’s certainly come at a good time. More traffic on the roads, more kids on their tablets in the back seat – the problem of motion sickness isn’t going anywhere soon.
That’s where Sea Legs comes in. It blocks the middle ear’s ability to send signals to the ‘vomiting center’ in the brain, making it harder to get sick in the first place. And it’ll help keep you in the clear for up to twenty four hours at a time.
You’re best to give kids Sea Legs an hour before travel, which shouldn’t be a major considering the tablets are chewable and virtually tasteless. Just make sure you follow the instructions as it’s only indicated for children over six.
“I think the most important thing for mums to remember is that Sea Legs has been around a long time so there’s a lot of trust there. The difference now is you can use it to fight motion sickness way beyond the boat.”
Sea Legs is specially formulated to provide effective relief for all the family whether travelling by car, plane, boat or coach. Taken the previous night or an hour before travelling they will help prevent sickness. Or take them for relief when you feel sickness coming on. The tablets are virtually tasteless, so they can be chewed or swallowed with water.
