5 Trick or Treating Tips for Mom’s
with Babies and Toddlers
2. ID Your Babe
As a mother with toddlers, you know that they are always on the go. For example, the moment you are at the bounce house with a bunch of mother’s and you look up in a scurry to pin point where your child is. Kids everywhere, on the go. Your heart drops for a second and then, “Ahhhh…” you can breath again because your see yours safe and sound in the ball pit. Well a busy neighborhood with trick or treaters everywhere can be a very similar situation. ID for child! Print out a badge and stick it on the inside of your childs costume. Let your little ghoul know that if he or she gets lost, find a group of adults and kids and have them call the number on the badge or sticker. Non-moms judge this but even the most seasoned mom knows, it can happen in an instant!
3. Bring Snack Safe Candy
What child can wait for a proper candy inspection before going to town? Bring candy from home for your toddler to snack on while trick or treating. Refusing to let your little babe dig in will ruin the fun so allow them your approved candy from home until you can get back and inspect their pillow cases!
I have a feeling that the baby will care nothing about Halloween but, you need to make sure your infants get ample heat as it can be pretty nippy. Small hand warmers from Wal-mart or Target will do the trick. James will be wearing a baby bear snowsuit and in between his suit and blankets I will stash some hand warmers for extra comfort. Make sure not to put the warmers directly on their skin as it could get too hot.
