Tips For Fun And Safety On Baby’s First Halloween

By Kelly Cannon

A baby’s first Halloween is very exciting for parents, who often search high and low for the perfect costume and take tons of pictures with friends and family. But before you take baby out trick-or-treating, make sure you pay heed to these tips:

1) Avoid Constricting Costumes and Accessories – Masks and tight costumes can be very uncomfortable or frightening for baby, and many will cry or fight against any costume that restricts movement. There is a wide variety of costumes for babies and toddlers that use little hats instead of mask, leaving baby’s face uncovered. Make sure costumes also allow baby to move freely.

2) Avoid Scary Masks and Costumes – Don’t be surprised if older babies are frightened by other people’s masks and costumes as well. This is not a time to instill fear into your baby. Sometimes adults and older children find it funny to show babies “the ropes” without realizing they can inadvertently scare infants.

3) Keep Weather Conditions in Mind – When choosing your costume, keep in mind what your weather will most likely be that time of year. In the northern part of the U.S., it is not unusual for children to wear coats over their costumes. The more south you go, you may have children overdressed in 80 degree weather. That adorable fur bear or lion outfit may not be the most comfortable outfit for baby if you live in an area that’s still a bit warm on Halloween. Don’t over or under-dress baby.

4) Make Arrangements Ahead of Time – Of course, there are people you’ll want to visit and share this special time with. Make sure that you’ve called at least a few days in advance to make sure they’ll be home when you arrive. It can be very disappointing to stop by Grandma’s house to show off baby’s costume and take pictures, then find Grandma has gone to play Bingo. Avoid this by planning visits in advance.

With just a little preparation and planning, your first Halloween with baby can be a wonderful memory for everyone. The photos you’ll get will last a lifetime, and you never know if baby’s first Halloween pictures might end up being passed down as family heirlooms! Whatever your Halloween plans and whichever costume you choose, by following these tips you can ensure a safe and happy first Halloween.
