Giveaway #19 - 6 pairs of Sea-Bands up for grabs - winners Dee, KTBennetts83, Nicola Lester, jumblymummy, wendymcd83, carolefindsherwings

At the very start of the summer holidays, I reviewed (here) Sea-Bands acupressure wristbands, designed to relieve all forms of nausea and sickness, including morning sickness, motion sickness, chemotherapy induced nausea and post operative nausea. Well, we've given them a thorough road (and sea and air) testing over the summer and I'm pleased (and I admit, slightly amazed !) to say that they seem to have worked every single time. The only sick I have had to clear up all summer long was courtesy of the dog - hmm I wonder if they'd consider making canine Sea-Bands for when we drop them off at the kennels !

But don't just take my word for it - try them out for yourselves ! I have SIX pairs of Sea-Bands up for grabs, worth a grand total of £48. To be in with a chance of winning, tell me in the comments box one thing (apart from Sea-Bands) that you have found sometimes relieves nausea, whether during pregnancy or travelling or whenever else you can think of.

For me, when I was suffering with morning sickness, I used to take a glass of coke and a ginger biscuit to bed with me so that as soon as I woke up, I'd drink flat coke and eat the biscuit before getting out of bed. It sort of worked but only for a while - I wish I'd known about Sea-Bands back then and I'd have given them a go !

Closing date : Sunday 12th September 2010. UK only.
Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you via twitter or email or you can't win !

Good luck !

  1. Seeing as I'm going on a cruise soon, this could be right up my alley!

  2. These are a great product! We had a pair and they worked a treat for car sickness too. Unfortunately we lost one!! Another pair would be fab.


  3. Have never heard of them, but would be worth testing. I was so sick the first 3 months of my pregnancy, in the mornings I used to have some biscuits next to my bed, I was so hungry I couldn't even get out of bed...

  4. I found ginger tea really helpful with my pregnancy nausea (as well as constant cake eating!)

  5. this things were great whilst i was pregnat really helped me get over my morning sickness when i was in work...... never knew they did different colours would love to win some blue ones for my boy he gets really travel sick and i wonder if these would work never thought about it till now...... he gets sick in the car even on short journeys to the supermarkets some times bless him......... my twitter name is @KTBennett83

  6. Lemon and ginger tea and sparkling mineral water were the only things that got me through the nausea when I was pregnant. I never thought of using something like this.

  7. Ginger nut biscuits helped when I was pregnant and my mum-in-law said crystalised stem ginger helped when she had chemo. I have a cruise coming up in Oct and usually feel rough the first day. Maybe these would help.

  8. Please enter me into your fab draw
    @easydees xx

  9. I used these for the first 4 months of pregnancy and eat my weight in Ginger nice lol @s_l_jewellery

  10. count me in i`d love one x @tess19711974

  11. i didnt think i suffered with sea sickness (been on loads of small boats) untill i went on a mini cruise, i was ill, and it really spoilt my time onboard. so to win something like this would be fab, ta for giveaway.x

  12. I'd love to try these out as I've heard they're really effective. @jumblyMummy

  13. I get terrible travel sickness, I'd love to try them.

  14. Holding a 2p coin in my hand during long journeys always prevented travel sickness when I was a child. Don't know why or how???

  15. When I was travelling in cars as a child (teenager, and occasionally still now) I was incredibly prone to travel sickness and very little seemed to soothe me. Until I discovered that imagining an animal (usually a wolf or deer in my case) running along outside the car, jumping hedges, swimming rivers, avoiding cars at junctions etc distracted me enough and had me focus on something sufficient enough to stop me from getting nauseous. I've always been too embarrassed to admit to this though so I have no idea if it works for anyone else!!
    Now I'm suffering from morning sickness and would love to have a pair of these to ease things otherwise I may just go mad!

  16. whoops. @caroleheidi (forgot to add that bit!)

  17. Dry Ginger Biscuits work wonders (and of course Gaviscon!)


  18. I found lemons help with morning sickness in pregnancy
