Ha! No, I'm not going to ask what night. :lol:

How young is too young to take your little one out? I want to dress BabyB up and take him out, really just becuase I think he's the cutest baby ever, and want to show him off, lol. MrB says he's too young.

What do y'all think? He'll be about 5 1/2 months by then.

I dressed mine at 9 months. We went to about 5 houses we knew and spent the rest of the night on the porch. Everyone loved her.

Awe! I don't think there is a too young! People will probably give you more baby friendly candies like lollipops. Thats what I do when little babies show up, I also keep some little baby friendly toys in a bucket (halloween rubber ducks etc) just for them.

If you didn't see it with your own eyes or hear it with you own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

I am not a mom, but I say that just because he won't remember it doesn't mean that you won't. Besides, there will be pictures to show him one day! LOL Have fun. :D

Ohhh...if his grandparents and other family members are local then take him by their homes. They will love seeing him dressed up. :wub:

You shouldn't go trick or treating. You should sit in front of your house and have people come to you. My son was 5 months old his first Halloween and we dressed him up and handed out candy in the driveway so everyone could see him. I would think it was kinda weird if someone came to my door with a baby that can't even eat candy. Of course, if you know the people you are planning on visiting then it is fine. Just not strangers.

My sister dressed up nephew as a biker with a Harley shirt, sunglasses, do-rag, etc., when he was about six months old...CUTEST PICS EVER. We had a ball. Heck, yeah, I'd dress him up and take him around, esp. to places where you know people. They will love it.

I WANT HIM. Just sayin'. :ninja:

Awe I don't have a problem who comes to the door as long as they are dressed up :lol: I don't care if an adult shows up trick or treating with their kid. It's all about the fun of Halloween.

I've had minivan loads of kids with a few parents show up without any costumes of any type or some saying they are collecting for a sick brother/sister/nephew. I save the now & laters and laffy taffy for those ones. :lol:

I think it's ok. plus, free candy! I think I will take mine to a few houses, because I feel like it would be a waste of money to buy him costume and not take him to at least one house. I'm still deciding what he should be. The daugher suggested a baby zombie. :D

Have fun, take a lot of pictures, make memories. Wether you go around or stay at home is up to you. Dress up or not-enjoy the day!
PS-I took my 1st out just 2 weeks after she was born. We didn't have the money for a costume, but she had a pumpkin colored dress, and although those pictures were lost in a move, i still remember them, and her. We met our neighbors, and got some candy for ourselves, and had fun. Life is meant to be lived-go out and do that

My little guy is due Oct 30th. I am thinking they are going to schedule a c-section sooner (we go on the 10th to get weight of baby again) because it seems I am giving birth to a toddler instead of a newborn. I am totally buying him a costume and dressing him up! No trick or treating but will have family come by to ooh and ahh over him :blush: !

I think I will dress him up and take him just to a couple of houses where we know the people. I LOVE Halloween!!! I don't know what to dress him as yet. I will prolly take him to a couple of houses, then spend the rest of the evening on the porch. Our families all live in TN, so I won't be able to take him there.

I'm just so excited! LOL I *love* this time of year.

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.

It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills.

It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies…

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

Senator Barack Obama

I just dressed mine up and took pics. Unless you have family to go with- I would Not bother . You would be bored and may look a tad strange with knocking on the door and it's just you and a baby who can't even eat candy lol

Of course you can take your baby! Baby costumes are so cute. My son was a skunk for his first Halloween and everyone loved it! :D
ETA: I would go with friends and their kids, though. I guess it would be a little weird if it was just you, husband and baby LOL. Make it a group thing and all will be fine.
