I still want to know .. since nobody can seem to answer me ...
How does a parent know if a non-verbal child is sea sick
A good clue is when said child pukes on you, or cries incessantly.
or just has gas or something?
When the child farts is a good sign.... or when the child cries incessantly.
In general, we parents just "know stuff" about our kid.
My child was just barely 2 and totally non-verbal when we cruised (Autism). I could tell when he was uncomfortable...but I tried to ward off seasickness at all by taking ginger tea and Benedryl (a good mild seasickness med safe for baby).
Basically, we follow the same stuff we do at home to help us determine what is wrong with our kid.
