  • When it involved dairy products, yes. I will never forget my son coming down with the flu. He wasn't feeling good and wanted some milk, which he is always drinking. It was a few minutes later and it all came back up and up and up over and over! It was the most disgusting vomit ever. I wound up throwing up.

  • I don't even think it makes me gag. My son has only vomited twice in his life. Once as an infant he projected it across the room and I was more impressed with the distance then grossed out, I didn't know a baby could do that. Then last summer he either got overheated or the flu, we're still not sure, but he vomited at a museum. I just whisked him to a garbage can as fast as I could and held him up. I felt more sorry for him then grossed out because we were on vacation, and he just felt so horrible.

  • I've gone through all 4 of my kids vomitting and have never gotten sick. It doesn't bother me. And with 4 kids, I've seen way worse stuff than vomitting. BELIEVE ME!!!!

  • I usually gag a little, then try not to breathe while I clean it up. My mom is a 22 hour flight away, and my husband is always at work, so if I don't clean it up, no one will... that wouldn't be pretty.

  • No, but then again, my son is only 16 months old so it's never been a ton of vomit. I think as he gets older it'll be harder. Honestly, his throw up is the only person's that doesn't completely gross me out. It's the same with his snot. I'll wipe it off with my fingers and it doesn't bother me, but just seeing someone else's would make me gag, lol.

  • I usually gag when cleaning it up, but have vomited while dealing with it before. I was pregnant and the smell was so overwhelming. Just thinking about it made me gag, lol.

  • I have never thrown up just because my ds did. I just clean up and move on.

  • No, it doesn't bother me, as I'm too busy cleaning it up!
