View Full Version : What do I do when own child is sick?

DD was sick constantly weds/thurs, then eased off but still being sick on and off after some foods, the last time was this morning. Would you stay closed and do the 48hr rule or let a mindee still come if the parent wanted them to as they have no other means of childcare?

I'd stay closed.
Apart from the fact that my child and I have as much right as anyone else to spend time recuperating, I would worry that my kid would pass it on the mindee who would then pass it back to my kid.

yes i agree you need to stay closed for 48hrs after last sickness if you have child and they get it parent may expect you to still look after them. :)

If my child has been sick once or twice then I'd leave it up to the parent to choose - bearing in mind that my youngest is 7 so they don't need the constant care that a younger child would - on the grounds that they will keep away from the LOs to a degree. If they were as sick as your child then no, I think I'd shut.
