Tuesdaily with gross report.

Guppy woke me up at 5 this morning, wailing. "I burped there!"

The 'burp' was far less pleasant than a burp, of course, and we cleaned it (and her) up off the rug and got a new sleeper. She did, at least, manage, to get it all on herself and the floor, not on the blankets or bed. We had to huggaminute after that, and she started wimpering again. I was prepared that time, but she had no desire to throw up in the pot I provided, so instead, there was a struggle and we both ended up covered in puke.

She's been on a 20 minute schedule since then, and the last two (after 8 AM), she finally is okay with aiming for the pot. Or too tired to argue, possibly.

"My neck hurts" is now code for "I'm going to hurl," and "Can I have a huuuuuuug?" means it's coming soon. She bounces wildly between begging for food and wanting to go outside and hanging limply in my lap feeling miserable. I'm only letting her have water.

We're watching How to Dragon now, and creeping up on the 20 minute mark again. I've got a laundry basket full of soiled clothes and blankets, and I'm trying to decide if it's worth putting in now, or if I should wait longer.

ETA: We got to the 40 minute mark and I gave her a Wheat Thin because she was sure she was starving to death. It came immediately back up again. My poor, sad little Guppy.

I heard somewhere that water is actually bad for some reason I forget. I swear by those pedialyte freezer pops. They are the only thing that reliably stays down if anything is going to AND they taste good (great for icky mouths) AND they feel like you are eating something but you really aren't. And apparently the cold also helps ease the tummy. I keep a few in the freezer at all times; generic is fine.

I hope it's all over soon!

Oh, good tip! I don't have pedialyte, but I do have Gatorade, and it's pretty close in formulation. She drank some and hasn't returned it to me yet, but time will tell. I filled an icecube tray, too, for later. Thanks!

Glad to help!

I heard this too! We didn't have pedialyte when I was little, but my mom would give me koolaid pops, or tiny sips of ginger ale, or ice chips.

Aw, hope she feels better soon - for everyone's sake. :)

Oh, poor Guppy! Wishing her a speedy recovery.

I sympathize with the starving to death. As a kid I was prone to car sickness, and inevitably ravenously hungry once I'd recovered from throwing up. Car rides involved a lot of crackers and other very mild things.

oh, the joys of parenting. Hugs and love and virtual booze to get you through.

Poor wee Gups!!! I hope she starts feeling better soon, poor baby. And poor you! No fun when your sweet babe is so sad and not feeling good.

Poor kid and you. I hope she's doing better very soon.

Oh, good luck!

Oh ow. *sends you both strength*
