We ususally give her a warm bath, cuddle and then back to bed

have you got a hand shower??

if so, lean her over the bath, shower her hair, and then wrap her up and snuggle her (and a bowl).

<<sympathies.....tis horrid when they sick>>

bung in shower, do it quickly

then tie it back/plaint it so further vomming doesn't get in the way

sorry but I can't bear cuddling children with sick-covered hair, so shower torture it is

hope she is feeling better today xxx

depends on volume grin

I have done a swifty wipe down and tied it up before

and a full on bath as she was covered

tip: keep old towels to hand then when they are sick, use them to cover the bed/pillow

when/if they are sick again, just whip the towel away and replace

dump sicky towels in bin bag to clean in the morning (always a joy hmm)
