4 Uses of Gravol That Every Mom Needs to Know

There are several uses of Gravol that every Mom needs to know. Believe it or not, Gravol has more purpose than you would even consider. In fact, using gravol while pregnant can actually help.

We are all aware that Gravol is perfect for nausea and vomiting. It can help to settle an upset tummy and allow you or your little one to relax a bit. Having Gravol in your medicine cabinet can save the day in what would otherwise be a sticky situation.

My Experience with Gravol

Over the past 5 years, I have dealt with more puke than I care to talk about.  Becoming a mother is not for the faint of stomach!  From morning sickness to motion sickness Moms deal with it all. 

Overall I would consider my morning sickness mild. It was certain smells, like those that come from diesel trucks or buses that would have me running for the nearest bush. So as long as I was careful to avoid them I didn’t have too many days where I needed to take Gravol for pregnancy. 

However, the use of Gravol doesn’t just stop at nausea, here are 4 uses of Gravol that every mom needs to know for pregnancy and beyond!

4 Uses of Gravol That Every Mom Needs to Know

Gravol isn’t just used for nausea and vomiting. In fact, it can be used for several other purposes. Believe it or not, Gravol can be a wonderful thing to have in your purse, especially if you are a mother or you are expecting.

Nausea/Morning Sickness – Gravol for Pregnancy

Nausea is no fun no matter what the cause, be it illness, pregnancy or just something you ate.  For something like morning sickness you can take Gravol as a preventative measure to help keep it at bay, or if you are already feeling nauseous it can help reduce or eliminate your symptoms when taken as directed. 

Morning sickness can be a doozy, especially if you have things to do but your stomach turns consistently. Using Gravol while pregnant can help to keep your stomach calm, allowing you do go about your day as planned. Especially when it seems that everything makes your stomach turn.

 Is Gravol safe for pregnancy?

Yes, Gravol during pregnancy is perfectly safe and can be super helpful for vomiting. It is safe to take Gravol during pregnancy, however, you should always consult with a medical professional if you are having severe symptoms.

It is important to ensure that you speak with your doctor prior to taking any medications while pregnant.

Vomiting 

No Mom likes hearing the words “my tummy hurts” because we all know what is coming next. Puke, puke and more puke.  The stomach flu is pure evil, we have been lucky and have only had it go through our house once since we had kids. 

I am sure it is an experience we will, unfortunately, have to deal with again in the future.  I have found that Children’s Gravol helped Monkey be able to keep things down a little easier so that at least he could stay hydrated. Hydration is my biggest worry when it comes to vomiting.

Gravol also helps to settle little ones’ stomachs so they can feel better. It has been a lifesaver in many situations and we are pretty happy that it helped.

Motion Sickness

I will never forget the excitement of taking our first long road trip as a family to Ottawa. All was going great until we were 4 hours into our 5-hour car trip.  Monkey was getting restless with my games and songs, but that was OK I came prepared with my “secret weapon” the iPad. 

He loved playing LEGO games on it, so I handed it over and he played quietly for 15 minutes or so.  That is until he said “I don’t feel well” and promptly threw up all over himself and the car seat.  I will never be unprepared like that again!  Make sure you have Gravol on hand to help combat car sickness while on the road.

In fact, it is a good idea to give your little Gravol as soon as you set off on your long trip. Gravol can also help with long flights and more. Just make sure that you are paying attention to the correct dosage.

During Labour

You might think gravol during labour, really? The short answer is a resounding yes. Gravol was suggested to me by my midwives for 2 reasons. First, during early labour, especially if it is at night, taking a Gravol can help you get some rest so that you will have more energy for when it really counts during active labour.  The truth is, you are going to need your rest for the day ahead and Gravol can help with that.

Second, during active labour, some women feel nauseous or vomit. Taking a Gravol can help minimize these symptoms so that you can focus on having a positive birth experience. You don’t want to be running to the toilet. No one wants to feel nauseous while in active labour.

4 Uses of Gravol That Every Mom Needs to Know - Gravol during labour

The use of Gravol extends far beyond morning sickness for Moms.  From helping you get through labour to battling the symptoms of the stomach flu, having Gravol in my bathroom cupboard helps me be prepared for the unexpected. Trist me, when you have kids, the unexpected always seems to happen. 

There are many uses for Gravol that people are unaware of. Just make sure that you consult your doctor prior to giving or taking any medications you have never had before. It is important to your health.

We highly suggest you have some gravol in your medicine cabinet so you are prepared when it is needed.
