    This is why I have no problem spewing in the loo.

    Our toilet gets cleaned ALL the time (DF is a clean freak), yep poo and wee are gross. But so is vomit, I'd rather have a spew and flush it away then clean it up. And FTR I lean with my hands on my knees lol.

    Ideally - outside onto the grass (near the fenceline), then cleanup with a hose.

    When I was pregnant with DD1, I used to catch a bus to uni, and every time I would get off the bus (in the Myer Centre, Brisbane City) and then vomit into the nearest rubbish bin. I felt bad about it, but didn't know what else to do. (It was only a small amount - no more than a cup full - but I did feel sorry for the cleaner that would need to change the bin bag.)

    I got a nasty bout of gastro once, and that is the only time I remember throwing up on a toilet. The gastro gave me diaroeah, but I was also newly pregnant and very sensitive to smells. Every time I went to the toilet, the smell of my own excrement would make me vomit. Therefore I would be sitting, perched as far back as I could on the toilet so that I could still poo into the toilet but there was room at the front to vomit into at the same time. It was a very unpleasant three weeks.

    When my children have been unwell. I put towels down in the bath for them to sleep on. That way if they vomit during the night it stays in the bathtub.

    Edit: I'm feeling like the odd one out because my answers dont match anyone elses.

    Sorry for such a random question
    Ewww what a random question lol. I kneel down near the toilet bowl. And I close my eyes cause I don't wanna see the vomit.

    Exactly the same way as was on Packed to the Rafters. I just find it alot more comfortable... The only time i will sit or kneel on the floor is if i am very tired or drunk etc.

    Stand. I'm short and will be leaning on the toilet if I kneel over it. I only kneel if I'm very very sick and weak.

    Also, we cloth nappy and have a little squirt hose on our toilet, so if a bucket is used it's easy to clean up! Has also been useful for when DD has spewed on her sheets and PJs.

    I have a bowl specifically for vomiting. No way is my face going anywhere near a toilet bowl except in an emergency when I have no other choice

    (an yes I'm sure everyone would be just as grossed out by my bowl as I am of using the toilet :P) I wash it very well after its been used, but considering how much I vomit (health issue), very necessary LOL

    So I vomit in whatever position I end up in : P

    Generally with my head in a bucket but when I had morning sickness it was.. Toilet, shower, bath, kitchen sink, kitchen floor (accident I didn't move fast enough), plastic bag, empty lunch box I kept in my car for emergencies.. Etc.. It wasn't pretty!

    I tend to agree with PP's re: head in the toilet but sometimes there was no avoiding it lol

    Depends.
    With my Hyperemesis id sit on the toilet floor then kneel over when i had to. Squatting made me wee as i threw up (which was a lot). If i hadnt eaten yet id throw up in the bathroom sink as the running water on my hand made me feel less ill.
    If its just random sickness i bend over.
