Re: Should I try and get my kids chicken pox?
I would not intentionally expose them. DS1 and I both got it when he was 10 weeks old. He was still nursing and quite miserable. We cried because he so clearly felt bad and there was not much we could do other than try to make him comfortable. He does have scars. Not pleasant, not easy and not anything I would wish on my other children. If they get it, they get it but I'm not going to seek it out. I got it as well obviously as an adult. My case was actually less severe than his. Like a PP said what if your LO is in the percentage that has complications.
