I know there's probably a slim chance anyone's awake at this hour but here goes.. My son started with chicken pox Sunday morning! he's 3..Apart from the souring temperature and the odd bout of grumpiness ams the countless times of telling hin to stop scratching he's not actually been too bad! Was just wondering if it is normal for chicken pox to affect the sleeping pattern? This is the second night in a row he's woken up at stupid o clock in the morning, whined, came into our bed and then we have the fight to get him back to sleep, he eventually does give in! Is there anyway we can make him sleep?, we have calamine lotion in abundance and calpol for when he's heating up, or is it just one of those things that has to run its course? me and my OH are running on fumes at the moment and would do anything for a good night's sleep! Thanks guys!
