What is the ideal age that you would consider actively looking to expose your child to chicken pox? What about measles? We don't vax and I'm just trying to plan ahead....

TIA!

For me personally any time after a year on CP and around 4 for the others ie measles, mumps.

Ok, so we can start looking for CP anytime then. One other question-

If he catches those illnesses from a freshly vaxed child, is it as good as catching them from a child with the natural, wild version?

There is a lot of debate about that. Personally I would rather my child caught the wild type that way I know for sure. Someone else I am sure will be along with better answers.

I agree with you. I just worry about whether we'll be able to find wild CP anymore...
