DS 2 years old started throwing up from 3am this morning till now, every 30 min at the beginning and now every 3 hours so he's recovering. But I feel horrible! I blame myself every time he gets sick. I shouldn't have got him the sushi yesterday that's probably what caused it. I should have cooked him dinner. I should have cleaned his toys and cleaned the floor etc. every time he gets sick I do a huge house clean. Now I just hope DD if 6 months won't catch the stomach bug
Do you blame yourself when you kids get sick?

Yes sometimes. Should've dressed them warmer. Should've been more careful that germs didnt spread between the siblings.
But even tho we give ourselves a hard time, its not our fault. Kids will get sick. No matter how clean the house is. Try to be kinder to yourself

No, I don't blame myself, and I think that unless someone knowingly or intentionally exposed their children to other sick people then you shouldn't either. Kids will get sick and it helps build their immune system.

No, never. I do occasionally get the guilts for being less patient with them the day before they get sick. I always look back and think 'ohhhh, that's why you were so grumpy/difficult/hard to get to sleep' and i do think I should know the 'signs' by now and feel guilty about that.

I do often think to myself damn I should've washed DS hands after that outing he might not have gotten sick or taking him to a play centre then 1-2 days later he's sick. We can't help it though... And if we really tried to stop them coming near germs you wouldn't be able to leave the house or eat outside the house. Try not be so hard on yourself Hun, getting sick is apart of life unfortunately

If it was caused by the sushi its not your fault, just never buy it again this is the reason I don't buy sushi. I dont buy anything or eat anything that is known to cause food poisoning because i hate vomit. It also helps that i dont like sushi of course My DH though must have a dogs stomach because the things i have seen him eat...and he is fine!
You can't help if your kids get sick. Bugs are nasty things and unfortunately everybody gets sick. I hope he is feeling better very soon!!! It's so traumatic for the little ones
