Sea Bands Review & Giveaway

Winner of the Sea Bands is @RedRoseMummy
Congratulations! Please DM or email me

If, like me, you've ever suffered from travel sickness you'll know what a horrid feeling it is. Quite often it's a relief  to actually be sick rather than feeling the nausea. I used to suffer terribly as a child and have vivid memories of being given a disgusting tasting travel sickness tablet before we set off on the mammoth journey down to Cornwall. I couldn't swallow it so my Mum would crush it up in my Weetabix which would make me feel sick when I ate it, and quite often still didn't work and I would end up with my head over a bowl throughout the journey. My mum said that the tell-tale sign was yawning - whenever she saw me having a yawn she would get the bowl ready just in case - I now look out for the same signs in my own children.

Last weekend we ventured down to South Devon, a journey that I don't usually suffer nausea or sickness but as we were also travelling up to North Devon where there are some winding roads along the route we wore our Sea Bands. The last time I travelled between South and North Devon was when I was heavily pregnant with Jack and, although I never suffered from morning sickness, I did suffer worse from travel sickness and have not been looking forward to doing this journey since.

The Friday night journey down to Devon was a very long 5 hours in which I used my phone to tweet to relieve some of the boredom and distract me from the 3 noisy kids in the back of the car. If I use my phone to text or tweet during a car journey normally I start to feel nauseous very quickly, even watching someone else reading a newspaper can set me off. This time I didn't feel sick at all and as Sam and Hanna both wore their sea bands they were able to use the ipad and read, something that they can't usually manage without feeling sick. 

On the way back home was a different story though, and the 50p Asda bucket that we keep in the car took a real battering. To be fair to the sea bands though Hanna had been sick throughout the night so they both could've possibly picked up a bug and I don't believe that it was wholly down to travel sickness.

I would definitely recommend using Sea Bands if you or your family suffer from travel sickness and they would work out cheaper in the longer term than taking tablets.

Sea Bands can also be used effectively to relieve morning sickness and Post operative & chemo induced nausea

Sea-Band is a knitted elasticated wrist band, which operates by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist by means of a plastic stud. Because the bands do not use drugs, they do not cause any of the side effects associated with anti-nausea drugs and can be worn on each wrist whenever you feel nauseous. They are suitable for adults and children.

  3. Great giveaway, I would give these to my sister in law who is suffering from morning sickness.

    I have also tweeted - @bloomingfox

  4. I'm starting to feel nauseous as I get towards the end of my pregnancy, I'm sure it's down to the constant acid reflux I'm having so would love to try these.

    I have Tweeted @MrsWebster147

  5. Tweeted, thanks for the chance


  6. I feel very queasy on boats even on still water (once threw up on the Seinne!) Think it is psychological now as it is so ingrained. Would love to win these and try them out.

  7. I've lost one of my sea bands and one on it's own doesn't seem to have the same effect! They really work for me though, @RedRoseMummy

  8. I've had cheap ones in the past, but the velcro is itchy. I'm terrified of boats (absolute, honest to goodness hysterical crying level of terrified), but they do work to take away the sickness, if not the TERROR! I'd love to win some comfortable ones.
