Seasickness with the under one crowd

With all of the recent discussion concerning the voyages of the Dream and Fantasy in Hurricane Sandy, I was wondering what the general experience with the under one crowd was during rough seas. I know that watching my 9 m/o rocking back and forth in the swing makes me think that they might be less affected by it.

DD hasn't experienced sea sickness (first cruise at 16 months). DH and I got a little sea sick last cruise (cured by ginger ale) but she was fine. She does get car sick sometimes but we do the same things we would do for ourselves (i.e. look straight out the window, fresh air, etc.) But I did find a past thread on this topic. Hope it helps.

Thanks for the link! About what I had assumed, but very reassuring to hear other's accounts of cruising with a small baby or toddler.

Generally young kids don't suffer from motion sickness. That being said, if your little one gets car sick or doesn't feel well if you were to spin them around (or expose them to other forms of motion that little kids tend to like) then talk to your Dr about options for your little one. We cruise with DS on his 1st birthday and he never noticed the motion even when it made walking a bit more difficult.

My husband and I once got very sick on an Alaskan cruise. My son was 11 months at the time (turning one the week after our trip) and he didn't get sick at all.

For this cruise, I asked the doc about seasickness meds for my daughter, who was 23 months at sailing. They said there was not any medicine available for someone that young/small.

If she is feeling sick, head to a lower deck in the middle of the ship. You won't feel as much motion there so it will help.
