Trick-or-treating with baby?
Maybe not. Halloween isn’t for every child. Most of the time our child’s first Halloween is about amusing ourselves. Your child has no idea what Halloween is or why you are dressing them like a pumpkin or a lion. That’s OK. Enjoy yourself, but keep your eye on your child too. Some children are totally overwhelmed by all the costumes, the masks, the makeup - on themselves and on the people around them. And them some children just go with the flow. Remember there will be lots and lots of years to enjoy Halloween so just do what is most enjoyable for you AND baby.
