You sound as if you've got it covered. The worst stage was also the shortest, from memory. Their worst night produced 4 lots of bedding to wash! I remember that helpless feeling too, have an unMnetty hug (()). I hope she is soon over the worst.

My 2 dc, 5 & 8 both had it over the summer. It was pretty awful at the vomiting stage, but how quickly we forget as I am racking my brains trying to think of things that helped. Vic on their feet and chest seemed to help, if I remember anything else I will come back to you.

SaraStratton might have some tips, she's nc to santastrapon at the minute. Her dd had it over the summer.

I had it when I was 6 and remember it, was awful. Just having someone there to hold my hand, hold the bucket as I was sick helped. My parents took it in turns to sleep in my room as I'd wake choking and coughing which was scary.

Anyone got any ideas how we can make it more bearable for DD sad
