Vomit is an inevitable topic around here. Reading about kid puke may be gross, but it beats cleaning carpet and changing sheets in the middle of the night, right?
Thank you for this, Shimona!
I don’t know about anyone else’s kids, but for mine, it’s not very comfortable to lean over the toilet to throw up, since they have to practically stand to reach the top of the toilet. And buckets are just as tough for little ones [Buckets tip. I wish I didn't speak from experience. — Ed.]. So I had the idea of using a potty when one of my girls has one of those nights.
After the first hurl, they lie on the floor in our room with their sleeping bag (thus no more soiling sets of sheets), and if they feel that awful feeling come again, they barely have to move to reach the potty. And the clean-up is just as easy as cleaning up the potty in any other “normal” potty situation.
If you've no longer got a training potty gracing your home, a handled plastic mixing bowl does the job as well.
