Who says baby can’t participate in Halloween festivities? Whether you’ll be tagging along with the big kids or going solo, here are some trick-or-treating pointers:
1) If trick-or-treating outdoors, grab your day-trip stroller. With more comfort-minded features and a better suspension system than typical travel stroller, the day-trip stroller will see to it that you’re able to navigate bumpy sidewalks while maintaining maximum comfort. Rear footboards give older children the option of hopping on for a ride, while a deep recline ensures that baby won’t have any trouble dozing off while everyone else keeps going.
2) If trick-or-treating indoors, grab your travel-ready stroller. The smaller frame will help you zip in and out of large crowds while its lightweightedness will keep you going, mall after mall, stop after stop.
3) If following a group of older trick-or-treaters by keeping up in the family car, be sure to keep baby in his car seat. While the slow pace may make it seem as though ordinary travel rules no longer apply, that’s simply untrue. Keep baby strapped in, just as you would during any car trip. If he gets fussy, stop every now and then to hold and feed or play with him.
4) If waiting for trick-or-treaters to arrive at your doorstep, try to include baby in the action by keeping her close by. Put a bouncer, high chair or bassinet in an area that will be out of the way of the cold, outside air, but also within your line of sight. Then, when the trick-or-treaters come calling, baby won’t be awoken by the doorbell, nor will she be left to wonder where you went!
But above all, have a safe and happy Halloween!by admin (Erica) | Posted in Baby Talk | No Comments
