Children being sick as a one-off?

Does this tend to happen a lot?

<crosses fingers>

(that it's a one-off as opposed to going to happen a lot hmm)

Yes. Very commonly.

DD has vomited many times just once, as has DS.

Normally they puke, I give them Calpol to keep their temp down if they have a fever, they sleep, they get better.

Fingers crossed.

Am hoping so, as I have just done a complete bed change for DS1...

dd2 (4)
did this a couple of weeks ago

she woke me up puking

I changed her bed, felt no temp, gave her a sip of water, she said she was fine

she went back to sleep, was right as rain in the morning

DD did that a couple of months ago. Much sick at about 11:30pm. Was fine in the morning.

Oh thanks for the reassurance, i so hope he's ok, and selfishly can't bear vomit, seems so many millions times worse than diahhrea (sp?)

He went straight back to sleep and no temp <hopeful>

If they are going to be be repeat pukers they tend to do it within twenty minutes IME - so it's worth sitting up with them for half an hour but no more to see if it recurs. I tend to double sheet if they've been sick so if I have to rechange the bed there will hopefully be an unvomity sheet underneath I can strip back to.

Oh dear - is it the oinking disease do you think or a gastric bug? Thank goodness we have washing machines eh?

Hope she's feeling better now.

And that you don't catch it!

PrincessToadstool Fri 07-Aug-09 08:36:59
