  • I think you were right to leave if baby was throwing up and acting off. I don't think it would be awkward to go back. It's all moms, they've all had puky babies before and I'm sure they understand.

  • I would have left too. I bet every other mother in that room has had something similar happen. Or they will at one point. They all understand! We did a library reading group for my son over the summer and I would just read to my daughter while he was in group. One day she got diarrhea and it leaked out her diaper. I pulled him out of group., took them both home. But we were back the next week. It happens,. go back. It will be good for you two!

  • Oh yeah...leave for puke, diarrhea and/or fever. Babies get sick, have 24 hour bugs, happens.

  • I'ts probably better to leave as respect for the other kids. I don't htink anyone will be uspset. Go back and use it as a conversation starter. "don't worry, I think he got all his throw up out last class. We should be good today!"
