  • I would just enjoy sometime at home and pass out candy.

  • I don't think it is a good idea to take him out, except maybe to visit a few family members. Otherwise, the end of October is cold and you will risk giving him a cold or virus being around other children. If it was me, I would stay at home and hand out candy.

  • Depends on you. Do you wanna go trick or treating? He's too young to remember.

  • i took all of mine out it was a family night out and it has become a routine even if we just pass out candy it is family time

  • No, only if it is necessary because of older siblings. Is my math right? Is this child still unborn. Someone has to be home to answer the door and hand out candy.
    Is this outing for you?
    It will mean nothing to a 2 month old.

  • When mine were that small I just took them to family houses so they could see grandparent and such :) But be careful! I worry about traffic and kids running around during Halloween! I drive like a 90 year old grandma that night :)

  • No. Just stay home and pass out candy! The only infants I see out and about on Halloween night are those out because their older siblings are trick or treating! The babies are usually dressed up too, and are in strollers, but it would be odd to see a parent out trick or treating with their infant!! :o) When your child turns 3ish, will be a good age to start actually trick or treating with them! For now, dress him up and take him to see family and friends.

  • I took my daughter out when she was 3 months old but that was only because I needed to be with my 7 year old while he was trick-or-treating. If it was just the one child at that age, I would not do it.
