I am on a hour 2 of a 4 hr drive stick in traffic. Our big truck broke and now we are riding home with a friend in her Nissan Altima. My kids have never been in a car before and my 3 yr old who turn 3 in June and is still rear facing just threw up and I think it's because she can see the cars outside and the road out the back window of the car.
We are stopping soon to clean her up as soon as traffic lets us off the highway.

Should I face her forward until we get home?! I have never ff'ed her and am nervous
Thanks

I'm not a tech but at that age in those circumstances I would... Or give her something to hold to throw up in if she feels sick again. I'm sorry! That sounds rough! :(

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I didn't have service for most of the rest of the drive so I am just now seeing this. I cleaned her up and we stopped to get out of the car and ate some lunch. She seemed much better so I kept her rear facing and gave her a bag to hold in case she got sick again and I held a bag up in the front seat as well to help if she got sick. Luckily she didn't.

My hub had given her a pop tart before the drive while we were packing up from camping and she doesn't usually get to eat junk food so maybe it was that.

I usually drive a suburban and in it she can only see the back seat 3rd row of the suburban and a little out the back windows when we drive. I think being lower to the ground and being able to see out a huge window with moving cars is what did it.

I honestly don't know how people handle rear facing in cars. I know it's safer it's just a pain to reach up and around and give the kids toys and stuff.

Also my friends car had no head rests in it so even if I drove it on a regular basis you can't put a mirror on the seat to see a rear facing child.
