Well, I got another mommy badge yesterday. We're having our first bout of throwing up sick. "Throwing up sick" appears to be very different than "feeling bad sick." There's a lot more laundry. And I need to buy another can of Spot Shot for the carpet.
I was putting clothes in his drawer yesterday afternoon, and I turned around when I heard a funny noise. He'd just been sitting on the floor, happily playing. He threw up most of his dinner all over Mr. Giraffe and then looked at me. I've decided that my throwing up technique is this: while the child is throwing up, I let him do so unmolested if he's on the carpet or the floor or something not upholstered. After he's done, I then pick him up and clean up everything. If I were to run with said child to the bathroom while he was throwing up, then I would have throwup all over more stuff, the hall, myself, etc. I'm sure you wanted to know that.
He threw up again several minutes after the first episode. After that, he got progressively more unhappy. He would start gagging and throwing up stomach bile. It was really pitiful. He slept well last night, and this morning, he's wolfing down the saltines and the water. I'm afraid to give him more than that until I see how the morning goes.
You veteran mommies out there, what do you do when your toddler gets throwing up sick?
