Today poor Peter started breaking out in blistery red spots. Poor thing, he’s just over his sickness virus and bad cold. Now he’s fallen to Chicken Pox. I didn’t realise that babies could catch it although we have been on the watch out, after both a toddler friend and baby pal of his went down with it two weeks ago.
He has quite a few on his head, back and sides but hopefully he won’t get too many more. Bless him he’s still trying to smile and play but he hasn’t his usual energy. Luckily it hasn’t affected his weening and he was happy to eat all his dinner.
After his bath we drenched him with calamine lotion. Bless, what a state he looked afterwards. Let’s hope he’s feeling better soon. I’ve cancelled going to all baby groups and coffee meet-ups. Let the cabin fever commence!
