We use dramamine for my son. We started him on them when he was about 2. He only took half a pill. That is what the doc told us to use on him. He would get car sick if he was in the car more then 20 minutes.

Dramamine works well with children, sea bands don't work so well in my experiences, my baby sister always got really bad car sickness, even if we were only in the car for 20 mins. Dramamine works though, but you should ask your pediatrician before giving it to him :)
