my 5 year old attends a homeschool program, and one of the moms brought her daughter to a chicken pox party yesterday.
i am cool with that regarding my 5 year old, but i also have a 5 month old.
the pediatrician (who is OK with me not vaccinating) basically said 'it's a tough call' whether i should keep my 5 year old out of the program for the next 3 weeks, to avoid her exposure during the incubation period.
since we just started the program AND i work from home, i can keep her home no problem. i dont want to because it's a lovely program, but 5 months old seems like it's very young to expose the littlest one. she is exclusively breastfed.
