Keeping Your Newborn Safe on Halloween

Halloween is an exciting time for older children. You may choose to celebrate with your new baby, too.

Here are some Halloween safety tips for keeping your new baby safe.

  • New babies should not wear face paint, or masks.
  • If you choose to use a costume for your new baby, make sure it does not have any pieces that could come off and cause your baby to choke. Costumes with the face open are best for new babies.
  • Decorations should be checked for small pieces that could cause your new baby to choke.
