Perhaps I should have put this in the vent thread. We have been trying lumpier food today. And dinner this evening was possibly lumpier than usual and poor DD started to gag. I have never in all my life seen a human baby turn into a vomit volcano. Everything in her tummy including the full bottle she had at 3 this arvo came up like a fountain. She drenched herself, the highchair, me -including filling my open-toed sandals, the floor, and the dining room table. It even came out of her nose & made her eyes water. Poor little thing looked shocked rather than upset.
I actually stood for a full minute looking at the vomit strewn area without a clue what to do first.
Then my supermum (ta-dah!) instinct kicked in and I took DD and myself off to the bath which luckily was ready. The dog started cleaning the floor (ewwwwww!) but I couldn't do anything about that 'cos I could only deal with one thing at a time.
Well she's safely off to bed now, with more milk in her tummy, (went down OK thank goodness) and I'm still scrubbing the high chair. Isn't parenthood marvelous?
