Ds(5) is off school today as he was sick Monday evening and the school has the usual 48 hour policy.

He was sick just the once and not poorly with it and is now bouncing off the walls and the idea of a day locked in the house with him and a boob monster newborn is terrifying me!

No reason not to take him out to the park is there? To save my sanity! Cannot wait until I can send him back to school tomorrow.

No, YANBU, but stick to places where there are no people, or out for a walk to a quiet forest, maybe? - in case he is still contagious. He might be, you never know!

Take him. Just keep him away from any other kids at the park so if he is still infectious he won't spread it- it's much less likely germs will spread outside than in an enclosed space like a classroom.

Yes if it's a play park with slides swings and other DC all in close proximity.

No if it's a walk through a quiet park woodland etc.

Was it just 1 episode of vom on mon eve and nothing since? If no diarrhoea, temperature or other signs of trouble then I'd go to a park. Just make sure he has washed his hands well after going to the loo if you are playing in equipment

I wouldn't unless you don't have a garden and the park is empty.

I know how hard it is to have a child bouncing off the walls after d&v but mine have picked it up at the park before now which has meant a very miserable week for us.

Yes it will be fine

How can you possibly know that? How do you know you weren't carrying it for example?
