Sounds a bit early to me.

I know lots of children that have caught it that young and even younger, i think i've even known a few newborns (i work in a nursery, we had a bad outbreak a few years ago).

My DD had chicken pox when she was 10 months, and she was fine, but I dont think I would deliberately expose an 11 month old to chicken pox.
