Should we bring a candy bag trick or treating for our 3 month old?

My baby girl is going to be three months for Halloween and was dressing her up as a little deer and was going around the block with her big cousins (7 and 9). is it appropriate for us to bring a small candy bag for her? (obviously, her father and I will be eating the candy, not her). but like, we really want some candy lol

Do it I did it with both my kids. It’s fun

I wouldn’t. You will look pretty silly collecting candy for your 3 month old. Eat some of your nieces and nephews

We did last year our baby was 6 days old :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

We didn’t go to every house for candy and when we did everyone oohhed and ahhhed at my son and said here you go tossed the candy in the pumpkin pale said thanks and was on our way.

I am more than happy to give candy to anyone who comes, including babies, teens, adults.

Hell yeah always. Either give it to the nephew’s or take it to work and fill candy bowls

Everyone loves candy. Who cares if mom and dad eat it. It’s fun! Enjoy!

Just do it! Appropriate or not…Halloween happens once a year. Who cares if it’s silly. My opinion.

I always did with my littles an of course we ate it,i think it’s fine

If you walk up to the door, your baby will get candy whether you have a bag or not. So I would suggest take a bag or else your baby bag will get filled.

We did for my daughter 1st Halloween she wasnt old enough to eat the candy either so we did. She loved it.

I think you would look silly with a 3 month old. Yes mom and dad could eat it but once people run out they shut their lights off. Leave the candy for the children. The baby will have many more years to take a bag.

It’s a joy to see the kids on costume of course bring a bag for candy.

Shit, I’d do it. Of all the years I’ve handed out candy, I personally never turned away anyone. Get your treats!

You deserve candy!I deserve candy!we all deserve candy!:clap::clap::clap:

Of course it’s ok…just be nice and admit your’re the ones eating the candy.

I took my daughter at 2 weeks and she was given candy nothing wrong with it

I say go for it girl

Candy is for everybody, not just kids & babies. Let’s face it, when it comes to candy, we are ALL kids!!

Well of course you can! Haven’t you ever heard of he parental candy tax before? As a mom, you are entitled to at least %15 of your child’s Halloween candy :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes::jack_o_lantern:

Look at all the candy hoarding under the bridge trolls!:eyes::laughing: Talking 'bout, “I retaineth the sugary sweets; therefore, I holdeth the power to judge whether ye is worthy of the sugary sweets I hold dear.” Ffs it’s a sweet & fun holiday for all to enjoy!

Two things happen: 1 if they have lollipops your baby will get those. 2 you may get asked what your favorite candy is because everyone knows you’ll be the one eating them :slight_smile:

My daughter was less than a month old her first Halloween so we did not partake in trick or treating, but her second Halloween we did and we got a lot of candy. A lot of people gave us extra because we all went as a kangaroo family :joy:

No problem I did it when my kids were that young

I believe any age can trick or treat as long as your in costume. So if your eating my candy you better be dressed up. Lol

We did it for my sons first Halloween and he was 4 months! Nothing wrong with it lol

You definitely should be able to. My little one is two months and we are just gonna hand out candy this year

My philosophy is every family member in costume gets a candy bag
If you do the leg work for a small child and get them all costumed up you deserve candy

I go trick or treating with my child. Some people find it rude of me, but until my 8yr old is ready for me to stop coming to the door with her my ass will have a bag too. I took her out when she was 3 months with my youngest brother at the time, she was able to walk at 3 months so everyone thought it was cute. She didnt go up to every house and we had the stroller tho. Some houses we went to had a different stash for small kids, we got a rattle and juice boxes, but that was rare.

Heck yes! I took my daughter when she was a month old. People will be happy to fill her bag😄

No but I wouldn’t take a 3 month old out even just walking around the block I’d stay home with him/her dressed and hand out candy. Candy is for the kids and no way the baby needs candy.

We are taking our 11 month old, but we also have a 2&11 year old. IMO you should just be doing the grandparents house at that age. Especially if it’s your only child. If you want candy nov 1 is 50% off lol

Go for it! I dont see the issue

We attended Halloween events but didn’t take candy unless someone gave it to us and then we put it in the diaper bag. Our daughter was 4 months. She did not have her own bag.

If you can I’d just buy my own candy. I didn’t want to take from kiddos.

Now if you are paying to attend an event see what the policies are. If there’s nothing against it carry baby and get candy.

I personally wouldn’t, but I dont think its absolutely horrible to do so either. Around me people always run out of candy early, so I wouldnt want to take from the kids. Id just raid the other kids bags :joy::rofl:

My daughter was born on the 26th of October and I had to take my oldest trick or treating. I say go for it.

I’d totally bring her out with you but wouldn’t troll for candy. Pretty obvious she won’t be eating it! The candy is for the kids.

Took my son to a trunk or treat when he was 3 months they still gave candy they knew it was for the parents but they didn’t care

I think that if the child is not old enough to eat the candy, the parents shouldn’t be taking the candy that’s meant for the kids that can eat it. By all means, dress your little one up and take them for a stroll, though. The fresh air is good for them and the sensory stimulation from seeing all the bright colored costumes will be enough for them until they’re big enough to eat the candy.

We did neighbors we knew in my parents neighborhood his first Halloween, I’m talking those who have known me for 10+ years and watched me and my brother grow up. His second Halloween he was 13 months old, we did a couple streets just for the fun and we actually gave him tiny bits of candy to try over several weeks…but we ate most of it. This year we are teaching him to say trick or treat since he will be 25 months. It gets progressively more fun.

I didn’t when my 2nd was a baby and ppl gave her candy anyways.:grin:

I never took my kids that young. My youngest turned one in august and I THINK we are taking her. But if doors are crowded I’m not rolling a stroller up to it for her to get candy she won’t and can’t eat. I can raid my other 2 kids bags… plus get Halloween candy half off the day after Halloween :joy::joy:

I don’t think it’s right unless your child is at an age to walk on his or her own. I had a 8month old last year and did not bring him up to the door only our older kids went. He was dressed up but sat in the buggy. Why would you want to drag a 3month old up and down stairs of houses all night? They want to sleep and rest at that age. Take a few pics with pumpkins and go and visit family.
