DD has just thrown up in her sleep

Just heard a terrible noise coming from dd2's (3) room. Ran in and she is laying on her back being sick. I grabbed hold of her to sit her up but she kept trying to lay down whilst still being ill. It was everywhere. <<< wretching emoticon>>> Had no choice but to get her in the bath as her hair was in a terrible mess. Poor thing was half asleep the whole time. Got her out of the bath and she was freezing - teeth chattering like mad.
Have got her in bed with me at the moment, am afraid to put her back in her bed in case it happens again and I don't hear her.

Hope she's better soon.

Oh, poor little girl - hope she's got it out of her system now and she has a peaceful night. Feel better soon, minisparkler!

aww poor darling, I hope she gets over it really quickly. Kids normally bounce back from these things much quicker than us big bodys.

Soesshe have a temperature, Sparkler?

this happened with ds a few years ago - he just slept through it and had had quite a bit of choc in the day so brown gloop everywhere. It still scares me now in case he chokes so if he says he feels sick i let him sleep in a camp bed in my room

SleepyJess Tue 08-Mar-05 23:01:08

DOES she...

SPARKLER1 Tue 08-Mar-05 23:04:03

Fab - she's just thrown up again - all in my bed this time. Lots of washing for me tomorrow. She does feel a bit warm. She's been absolutely fine today I can't believe how suddenly this has come on.

SPARKLER1 Tue 08-Mar-05 23:05:38

She just wants to sleep through it all. It's flippin' hard work trying to hold her up, grab a sick bowl and move everything out of the way at the same time. I keep yelling out to dh each time and he comes hurtling up the stairs.

Oh horrid. It's happened to us too. (And it's happened that I've gone to get ds up in the morning and found him lying in a puddle of dried^-^up vomit.)

If a child is vomiting in her sleep while lying on her back, it can be easier to roll her onto her side than to get her to sit up. Or alternatively to roll her over completely onto her tummy and hold her under the shoulders with one arm (almost like a hug from behind) while supporting her forehead with the other hand. You can see I've been there before!

It's never been anything with mine, jsut the one chuck in the night, with maybe a slightly grizzly day the following day. Hopefully your dd will be fine, too.

I bathed her the first time. This time it was a quick wipe through the hair and over the face with a warm flannel. I daren't bath her again in case it happens all through the night.

PrettyCandles Tue 08-Mar-05 23:10:39

Oh you poor things! I don't know what to suggest.

SPARKLER1 Tue 08-Mar-05 23:11:12

Pixiefish - I've got the bale of towels ready.

SPARKLER1 Tue 08-Mar-05 23:28:01

Well she's gone quite for a while now. Don't know whether or not to go to sleep myself yet.

SPARKLER1 Tue 08-Mar-05 23:28:16

was supposed to be having an early night tonight!

pixiefish Tue 08-Mar-05 23:30:15

poor little dot

Surfermum Tue 08-Mar-05 23:31:12

Hope she's OK in the night Sparkler ... and that you can come out to play tomorrow! Night.

MunchedTooManyMarsLady Tue 08-Mar-05 23:31:53

if she's sleeping with you then go to bed. You'll hear her. Keep towels by you and be careful not to make her too warm. Means a cold night for you. Hopefully it will pass tonight.

SPARKLER1 Tue 08-Mar-05 23:41:05

She's supposed to be at pre-school all day tomorrow. Shall just see how things go through the night as to whether or not I shall send her.

MunchedTooManyMarsLady Tue 08-Mar-05 23:44:41

If children have thrown up they are not supposed to go to school, nursery etc for 24 hours in case it's contagious etc. Sorry

SPARKLER1 Tue 08-Mar-05 23:48:09

I know I thought about that.

MunchedTooManyMarsLady Tue 08-Mar-05 23:51:26

Go to bed honey. Sleep tight. Have a good day tomorrow.
