Give us something good to eat! (Even if we’re teething.)
Now baby’s arrived… and that totally changes the game! You can surely bet that for this Halloween, we are so eager to get outside and introduce Leo to a world of costumes, candy, and Jack-o-lanterns. Trick-or-treating… here we come!
Tips for Trick-or-Treating with Infants
Just walk around!
I know candy is one of the best parts to trick-or-treating, but baby won’t actually know what he/she is missing out on. Halloween is a time to get festive, so put on your spooky gear and allow baby to observe the decorations, the ambiance, and all the fun costumes.
Spook-up the stroller
Perhaps baby’s not into wearing his/her costume? Maybe you decided last-minute that you’d take a festive stroll around the neighbourhood? No worries! If you’re not up for a disguise, you can add a few touches to your stroller to get into the Halloween spirit.
Work it, work it – model that cute costume!
Rather than going door-to-door, visit a mall or a local museum dressed from head-to-toe. I don’t blame you for wanting to show off your cutie-patootie!
I know many parents who’ve expressed the “tackiness” in taking a baby door-to-door for candy. Rest assured, Leo and I will be having our own treats this year (teething biscuits and pumpkin puree for the win!), but remember: each family has their own preferences. Do whatever’s best (and most fun!) for your little one! Whether you’ll be seeking treats or just roaming the streets on the 31st, I hope you all have a fun, festive, and amazing Halloween!
