    Rear-facing and car sickness

    My 18 month old has been getting sick in the car on longer trips. The thing is, it's only on the way to my grandparents house, which is about 1 and 1/2 hours away on a curvy road. He rides rear-facing in a Britax Marathon and has never ridden any other way.

    Could the sickness be partly caused by being rear-facing? I think it's likely just the curvy road, because I used to get sick on the way over there when I was younger. Plus, he also gets sick if he swings for too long. I think my grandparents and parents have got me questioning it by telling me "You might have to turn him around...bla bla bla"

    What do you all think?
