I wouldn't do it yet -- we had a chance to expose our baby at 9 months' age and chose not to, because of the risk of complications and the fact that she wasn't yet able to communicate with us to let us know whether she was in pain or uncomfortable, etc.
We did teach her sign language and now, at 20 months' age I would feel a lot more comfortable about her being exposed than when she was younger.
We figure that we've got a good five years for her to catch it (since we're not vaxxing for it but would prefer she get it prior to starting school), and wanted to wait until she could tell us what was going on with her to be able to better respond to her needs while ill.
