Casey good luck on your next attempt. Have him nibble a few cookies before you leave. Also, see ifyou can get a few sips of ginger ale into him before hand. If sea sickness hits, you want him to take small sips of cool- not cold ginger ale. Some little guys think it tastes too "spicy" and we've had success cutting it with water for those what feel that way. Let us know how he does!
I almost bought some when I got the cookies. The boy does not like carbonated drinks. I will pick up some- and offer it slightly warm as you recommend. I also need to pick-up some ginger tea.
