Would you send her to nursery?

Apologies if this is a stupid question, but this is all new to me.

My 10mo dd has been happy and well all day. At around 5.30 she started some quite distressed crying so I assumed she was tired. Put her in her pjs, gave her her bedtime bottle. As I sat her up to burp her, she did an ALMIGHTY burp, then projectile vomited everything she'd eaten today. As soon as it had all come up, she seemed to relax and wanted to go to sleep. I'm checking on her every 20 mins but she hasn't vomited again and is fast asleep. Because she's been fine all day and seems fine now, and because of the giant burp that preceded the vomit, I'm inclined to think it was a case of bad trapped wind.

She's supposed to be at nursery tomorrow. Their policy states no attendance for 48 hours after d&v. What I'm not clear on is whether a one-off vomit with no sign of diarrhea would count as d&v. Obviously I'd phone to ask them, but they're closed now and dh has to set off with her in the morning before they open.

So I just wondered what other mnetters would do in this position? Obviously, if she vomits again in the night I will keep her at home.

I would say fine.

Tricky , I think the policy means diarrhoea or vomiting, or both!

I think the burp sounds like trapped wind, I honestly don't know the answer to your question , sorry!

If she is ok the rest of the night I would. Gingers crossed she has a good night

I work in a nursery and I would send her if she was mine
as long as she doesn't have any more vomiting that is
one off vomiting like you describe can be quite common in babies
as long as she is her normal self in the morning I would send her and I wouldn't say anything to the staff as they might not let you leave her if you mention vomiting

Thanks everyone. I'm pretty sure she's ok, but if she vomits again or has ANY other symptoms that even suggest she's not well I will keep her at home.

Well, she slept for 12 hours (which is unheard of) and woke up giggling and chatting to herself. Phew. So she's gone to nursery! Thank you for all your advice.
