Sugar High

Lucas had his first popsicle yesterday. Hot weather called for it and I agreed and thought it was a pretty novel idea. It’s a “fruit” popsicle… so totally healthy and I really didn’t think the sugar and ice would be a big deal. 
He was completely loving it and I’ve never heard him so quite or seen him so sticky. 
Well, thirty minutes after he finished (and he didn’t eat the whole thing) he threw up. All over himself, my arm and the tan carpet.  He went to bed as normal at 7:00 but then was up at 8:30 and didn’t go back to sleep until 10:00 or so.

Who knows if it was too much sugar for him and his body reacting to it, or something else. But next time we go for popsicles, I might do them earlier in the day. Or maybe I’ll just save them all for myself.

I love me some popsicles.

  1. Maybe I'm showing my age here but I remember Popsicles having two sticks so that they could easily be split in half; child gets one half and Mom gets the other. What happened to that? Half the sugar could be just the ticket?

  2. I have had the same thing happen with my little one before. We had played at the park and it was nice and hot.. then ate some ice cream..threw up all over the place! I thought she had just over heated and then I gave her to much sugar!?!? who knows? After she got sick she was fine.. slept, played, ate like normal. So not really sure. At least I am not the only one though 😉

  3. If he doesn't have sugar often, he probably isn't used to it! Just try little bits at a time until he gets used to it 🙂
