ChickenPox

I've been a little quiet on the blog for the past two weeks, due to a few reasons.  One of which is Rupert has chickenpox!
My youngest and first to catch them. None of the others have had it yet, so now as Ru's start to scab over I'm on spot watch on the others. I'm dreading Noah getting them as I know he'll be the one to make the most fuss.

Ru was pretty grizzly to start with but if I had a stream of snot running down my face all the time I think I would be too!
I was given lots of suggestions from lots of lovely mummies over on Instagram, I made sure I had some tricks up my sleeve to help deal with the itch when it came!
What I used - Boots allergy relief for ages 1 and up Oats, which I made into bath bombs with a pair of old tights. Then every bath time he had an oat bath which is meant to help sooth the skin. Virasoothe! This was amazing, Jenny came over on Monday and suggested I try it as her mum recommended it. it cost around £8 and I found it in Sainsburys.

Your body has a clock, and if you can get used to a pattern that suits you, this will be hugely beneficial for your health and wellbeing. If you’re one of those parents who finds themselves driftin…
