A person with chickenpox is most contagious during the first 2 to 5 days of being sick

They are contagious until all sores have scabbed over It is spread by the fluid in the sores and through coughing and sneezing http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002559/

So if she has any open sores I can technically rub baby/toddler on them to contract?

yup. It may not work. It can take up to 21 days after exposure to find out if you have them or not.

Thanks - we think it might be too late. I wish I had known when they first got them. I would have been over in a heartbeat.
