Just wondering if anyone has tried these lollipops and/or drops? I've read mixed reviews on them.. i figured it wouldn't hurt to try them. Hope i can find them here!

they're AWESOME and taste fantastic. I had all day nausea with Holden and those things (for me at least) were total lifesavers.

I used the drops. raspberry is so yummy


Eta: this time around I only really get car sickness so I use ginger altoids. Ginger calms nausea, and they were cheaper than the preggie drops.. though I prefer the taste of preggie drops- they're just hard to find unless you're in BRU or the mall

I had terrible nausea and I although I couldn't depend on them to totally CURE my nausea - when I felt a little icky they were amazing!! I have heard people take them in the labour room with them too cause they can't have anything to drink and I think I am going to take some...cause they taste good and do work!

Motherhood Maternity has them, and i'm pretty sure Babies-R-Us does too. Most maternity stores (chain maternity stores anyways) carry them

I think sucking on hard candy in general helps (not as much, but it does), takes your mind off of the nausea.

I tried both. I would recommend the drops, you get more for the $ plus they don't have the weird flavors. In the pops you get lavendar and ginger - I didn't care for those, in fact I threw them out. I did like the drops. I don't know what it is about them because the content is not really different than any other candy although the box says they are made with essential oils. I found mine at Motherhood Maternity.

For the amount of money you pay... get jolly ranchers, its the same thing.

Now the B-Natels.... cost more, but you can only take so many of them cuz of the Vit B.

They are so expensive for the same thing you get for sucking on ginger drops. Ginger drops work wonders! They just dont taste that great!

I had B-Natals. Taste great...hard to say if the worked. My nausea was all day and varied in intensity. Would it have been worse when I didn't use them?Don't know. They tasted great, though. The vitamin B is what supposedly helps. Good luck. I hope you find them and they work for you.

I bought them and they kinda worked but there were weird flavors so it wasn't worth it for me to buy the pack and only use half of them So now I use jolly ranchers and they seem to do the trick- but then again I am 15wks so it may just be that I'm less sick! Hopefully they work for you!

ps- I got mine at Babies-R-Us but they carry them at any maternity store.
