Has you BABY had chicken pox?

My 5 month old baby was exposed to the virus since my niece just came over our house with shingles! Her mom didn't even tell us. Anyways I was reading online and it says that someone with shingles could give chicken pox to someone who's never had it. My baby is only 5 months so he hasn't had the vax yet. Has anyones baby ever got it & if so how serious was it? Thanks.

  • My son had the chicken pox when he was 3 months old, I just kept calamine lotion on him and he barely fussed.
