At what age CAN you take your baby trick or treating?
I've seen so many posts about if it's okay to take a baby trick-or-treating for candy and a lot of people saying that they shouldn't take them because babies obviously can't eat candy. But is it so obvious? In some cases, yes, but at some point it becomes a matter of opinion. Not everyone gives their kids sugary foods at the same ages. Not every one is as strict or relaxed as the next person.
So what's yours? When can a baby be taken trick-or-treating?
I personally wouldn't take a baby unless they were around the age of 1 or older. My son was 11 months, very close to his first birthday. He probably didn't visit more then 6-10 houses and he probably ate a few licks of a sucker that night lol. Last year I took my 1 month old (no, she wasn't cold, I live in warm weather lol.) but I didn't actually take her to the doors to get candy. Just my then 6 year old got candy. This year she is 13 months and I will let her go up to the doors to get candy and she'll probably have a sucker or some other small thing that night :)
