A baby’s first Halloween is an exciting event. While they may be too young to take part in traditional celebrations on Halloween, there are plenty of fun things to do with a little one.
Now, a website solely dedicated to all things maternity and parenting is offering new parents tips for celebrating Halloween with baby.
“While a baby won’t remember their first Halloween, you can take plenty of adorable pictures that will serve as keepsakes for generations,” said Maternity.com spokeswoman Julia Blair. “Dressing up a baby in a costume can create wonderful photos you can share with the entire family.”
When dressing up a baby, Blair suggests avoiding any kind of face makeup because a baby has very sensitive skin and it can cause irritation. In addition, Blair says that a newborn or young infant should remain indoors if Halloween is a chilly autumn evening.
“Halloween falls in the height of flu season and a baby must be protected from germs at all costs,” said Blair. “Instead of touring the neighborhood, parents can take their child to a grandparent’s house or the home of a family friend.”
In addition to celebrating Halloween with baby tips, Maternity.com offers expectant mothers unique Halloween costumes for the pregnant belly, as well as the top funniest maternity Halloween costumes. For mothers-to-be looking ahead, there’s also plenty of survival tips for Christmas and Thanksgiving.
“The holiday season can be a stressful time for everyone, but it can be especially difficult for expectant moms,” said Blair. “We believe there’s no reason a bun in the oven has to cramp your holiday style.”
