To save on dishes I give them their drinks and food in little dixie cups and paper plates. I also cover all the carpet that leads to the bathroom with blankets. Saves on scrubbing carpet if they don't make it. I wash my hands even after the gloves and disinfect the sinks and bathtub too including faucets. Clorox wipes are good for that and the flusher handle. Most of the time children are contagious before they actually start any symptoms. That's the bad part because they don't know they are feeling sick until it happens. Like an adult sometimes can feel it coming on a little bit. I also keep my kids separated and don't let anyone use the bathroom that the sick person was in unless of course you only have one bathroom then just clean it very good in between uses. Hope this helps. Hope your son gets better soon too.
oh man, here i thought he was getting better and let him go ahead and have some of a banana and a popsicle and he just threw it all up again. hes still the only one sick but this is just terrible. he has been throwing up since 1am this morning and its 8pm. i think im going to bring him in to be seen.
