    Should infants take part in Halloween and should you spend so much on their costumes since they are not even aware of what is being celebrated

      Just for fun, yes, it is not about the essence of Halloween, but then they look awesome and real cute in costumes, I made a hub about it, cutest Halloween costumes for babies ....

      Yes, just be careful where you take them for trick or treating.
      So they don't get scared. They may understand depending on how you explain it. Show them careful baby Halloween cartoons if you can.

    Sure they should.   They don't have a clue about what's going on, but they usually like being carried around by a parent.  Trick or Treating is probably interesting to them.  (I always make sure I have some treats that are right for babies, because I get a lot of them in my neighborhood.)

    I agree with nikki1  as long as there is no risk of them becoming scared. If ppl can dress up their dogs and cats why not their babies. Not sure about spending great wads of money on the costume but they do look sooooooo adorable.  If you turn this around, why should they be excluded from the fun ?

    I see no reason not to include the little ones, our son was born in Jan and we got him a costume at 9 months old. We didn't even trick or treat that year and all he did was sit and watch us hand out candy. He has a perfect pooh bear even if only for a little while.

    Just for the pictures alone I think it is a great idea to get them involved early. big_smile

    Just don't take them to Halloween Horror nights at Universal Studios. I can't believe how I saw some little 4 and 5 yr olds there!

    I mean this event is very mature, with R rated movies shown on buildings as you wait in line. Blood and chainsaws everywhere, those poor kids must have nightmares for life. hmm
