My son is 2 months old and tends to poop once every 4 days. The doctor says its normal but I am worried.
1 Reduce Sensory input
Encourage your child to look at things outside,rather than focusing on books,games or movies.If your child naps,traveling during nap time that may also help
2 Carefully plan pre-trip meals
Don’t give your child spicy or greasy foods or a large meal immediately before or during travel.If your travel time will be short,skip food entirely.If the trip is long and your child needs to eat,give him or her a small bland snack such as dry crackers,and a small drink
3 provide air ventilation
Adequate ventilation may help prevent motion sickness. Try to keep air clear of any strong odors
4 Other Distractions
You may try distracting him/her by talking, listening to music, or singing songs
If all these don’t work, you have no choice but to give your child older than 2 preventive medicine. Over-the-counter medicine like Dramamine is approved for kids over the age of 2, or Benadryl can be used for older than 6 years age. Give only the appropriate dose for body weight. The medicines are absolutely safe in correct dose and do not have any long-term side effects.
Always consult your pediatrician at regular visits if he/she has any other suggestion. The preventive medicine always work in my experience.
