    Default Chicken pox

    All the kids at the creche where my dd goes are getting chicken pox. I had chicken pox as a kid so I have the antibodies. I was just wondering if my dd will get it or not as she is still bfing and getting my antibodies. I would love to hear of any similar experiences.

    I would think at the age she is she may not get the full benefit of the antibodies from you. If she were younger, maybe. the pox are most contagious before the rash appears so she's already been exposed... for at least a few days depending on how many days she is there....

    Keep an eye on her and maybe, if she gets them, it'll be mild :
