Toddler Life – The Vomit Tidal Wave of Destruction

There are many things you deal with as a parent that you never knew existed. Some of them you definitely wish didn’t! A classic – Projectile Vomit.

Seriously though how do these kids do it? As adults this is a very difficult thing to do – but nope it seems to come natural to a toddler and unfortunately it seems to happen quite often!

We’ve all had this scenario – your little one wakes in the night crying ‘mummy mummy’. Oh God he’s awake again at some un-god forsaken hour – you grumble to yourself as you stroll down the landing in a huff – kids probably lost his sock AGAIN.

You enter their bedroom and your lovely child is covered head to toe in vomit and so is everything in his cot bed. GREAT! My poor little one, let mummy tidy you up – it will be OK…mummy’s here now.

Toddler Life - The Vomit Tidal Wave of Destruction

This isn’t as simple as it sounds though. For starters your little one is a living moving entity & very strong willed. Its hard to persuade them to keep still in one spot so that you don’t get sick foot prints all over the carpet. Then there’s their pj’s – how on earth do you get them off without getting more sick in their hair.

The bed – urgh the bed – no worries you have a mattress with a protective cover on – ah it hasn’t worked as well as hoped, the mattress is damp and you still need to put your little one back to bed. They could sleep in bed with you? Hell no! I don’t want to end up in a tidal wave of vomit in my sleep! Hmm what to do what to do – ah-ha! I’ll turn the mattress over – God I’m a genius at 2am.

So after finally tidying up the mess and nearly hurling yourself at the stench – seriously what do these kids eat? You finally get your cutie pie back to sleep and get comfy in your bed. Ah comfy good good I can try and get some more sleep.

Then you hear it ‘Mummy, Mummy!’ Yup you’ve guessed it another vomit tidal wave … sigh its going to be a long long, and one more for luck long night!

    Oh these are the worst! We’ve only had a few, but they’re terrible middle of the night bath jobs. #justanotherlinky

    Perfectly summed up the 2am vomit tales. It’s getting the pjs off I find the hardest and the smell! Plus the next day there is still that wet patch which soaks through your sock, just to remind you of the night before!

    Oh no! They are the worst especially in the middle of the night when you don’t have a choice but to give them a bath and obviously they really don’t want a bath. Hope that you are all feeling a bit better today #marvellousmondays

    oooh no! Bless. I’m so lucky as hubby tends to clean up the bed and I do the child. This is over pretty quick and I get to cuddle her to sleep. My daughter is also weird as she voms….is fine for 24hrs and then does it again!! No sure which is worse. Hope your toddler was ok and you didn’t get it!! xx #marvmondays

    Ullgh – oh God, it always gets in places that you’d never imagine (behind the door, on a sibling). My husband once cut sick out of my daughter’s hair. She was the only one year old with a geometric bob! #fartglitter

    Oh there is nothing worse! (And there is never enough bedding!) How does so much vomit fit into one tiny person? Only one solution. Make them a towel bed in the bath and sleep next to them on the bathroom floor….

    Ps. I haven’t actually done this. Although I am now seriously considering its possible merits?

      It’s definitely an idea! They always seem to just have enough sick to ruin any clean bed sheets & pjs you have for them! X

    If it’s not vomit, it’s poo … And like other commentators, I never understood how something that small could product quite so much icky. Life with toddlers is so glamorous!

    Ick. Once when I was teaching a child put his hands up to catch or stop his projectile vomit and managed to create a violent spray which coated everyone else in the vicinity. Kids are gross 🙂

    Omg that’s the worse part of parenting lol. Vomit is just soooooo inconvenient but such a part of our babies growth. We just have to suck it up and get them better. I use to keep my daughter in one room, I learned the hard way having her roaming around made cleanup worse. I also use to lay down garbage bags cut open to cover bigger space for easy cleanup. Still no amount of prep makes this portion easy. I felt your journey 🙂

      Love the tip about the garbage bags! I’m going to remember that for next time because I’m sure there will be a next time 🙂
