  • Bug spray. Lots of bug spray. My son did okay with fireworks as long as I was holding him, which says a lot because he's a huge pansy about everything. He cried today when we went through the automatic car wash.

  • Read a book from the library about fireworks and let the baby know it will be LOUD! and BIG! and BEAUTIFUL! and act all happy and excited :0)

  • Yeah all mine have cried at that age. And I mean all of them. It's just too loud and scary. My advice would be to have a back up sitter that can take baby inside if they get scared.
