Should parents with babies who can't eat candy go trick-or-treating?

My cousin's baby is 5mos and she's dressing him up and taking him trick-or-treating this Halloween. He's obviously too young to eat the candy himself so I don't think she should go, but I haven't said anything. I just think it's tacky to go out candy-grubbing under the guise of it being for your child when clearly the child can't have any of it.

I think it's tackier to take candy when you know damn well you won't be passing any out.

It's so wrong unless you're just showing off the child and not taking candy.
Like sorry but I know you're the one eating the candy, now go away.

Personally I dont see why you would take a child that young trick or treating. Dressing them up, sure thats fun. Taking them to see family, yes. But taking them to strangers houses and getting candy that not only can they say trick or treat for, but cant even eat it just seems pointless.

The first 2 years I only took DS trick or treating to family and friends. They liked to see him dressed up and loaded him with candy. Couldn't eat it the 1st year, but could have a little the 2nd. The next year he was able to say trick or treat and understand what was going on so we took him to a few houses.

I have always taken my babies trick or treating with their older siblings. However, I don't have a bag for them to collect candy with. They just get dressed up and go along for the ride.

I think they are just excited to be showing off their baby.

I will be honest I think it's tacky. If you want candy buy your own. We always dressed our babies but never got candy for them.
