  • I would dress him up, and if you have other kids take him with you, but not actually trick or treat. Most of the things he will get he can't use/have anyway.

  • absolutely!! however you could find a local halloween party or festival and take your baby there... we took our little girl to a local shopping mall that had a halloween costume contest and trick or treating from store to store...she loved it! and there wasn't any vehicle traffic which made us feel safer..and she won 3rd place in halloween costume contest:) she may not remember but you will..and that was a blast for her dad and I

  • I took both of my girls trick or treating when they were babies. My first DD was a day or 2 after she turned 6 months old. She didn't understand it was more us than her lol, but I couldn't wait to take her and she was so cute dressed up lol. Our youngest was 9 months old so a bit older than our first, but it was still fun lol. It was their first halloween you have to dressed them up lol. I gave my kids the suckers and gummy type things I new they could eat then mommy and daddy got the rest lol.
