So after Toby escaped with mild chicken pox poor Zara wasn’t so lucky. My poor little girl started coming out in spots last Saturday and she is absolutely covered. The main things to watch for with chicken pox is a high temperature and secondary infection so i made sure I kept bathing her and gave her calpol to help keep her temperature down. Luckily most of the spots seem to have dried out now but she has a nasty cough and is very uncomfortable. Bicarbonate of soda in the bath is good as well as the usual creams. Just can’t wait for her to be better!

With all the extra carrying of Zara I’ve had to do my poor back is definitely feeling it so I have had a few excellent treatments from Adrian which have really helped. Apart from using a sling to carry her in its been hard to carry her without it affecting my back as she is now quite heavy. I try to carry her in front of me but even then I find I am leaning slightly backward which puts pressure on the joints. It’s so important to keep doing pelvic floor exercises and to strengthen the stomach muscles to help the back.
