I just read that some people think its "rude" to take a baby trick or treating or a very young toddler who can't talk yet (or much). She said that the candy collected is just for the parents as the baby really can't et the candy.
I guess I never thought of it. I took my baby trick or treating and dressed her up and went with another mom who did the same thing.
I will admit it was great to re-live the fun of trick or treating and get some candy, but mostly, I just wanted to "show off" my adorable infant in her costume.
What was she for halloween? I never took my infants or young toddlers but I don’t judge others for doing it. It’s usually cold and rainy here so I keep the littlest ones at home. I still get costumes to take pictures though lol!
And I still have all their first Halloween costumes 😁
Ds was a pumpkin, dd1 was a caterpillar and dd2 was baby Snow White
I think most parents do it for the infant to have the experience and also to show of there babies. I don't think it's rude at all and no one is spending a bunch of money on a costume,to get the candy they could have purchased with that money, that's silly thinking. I love seeing the babies the most!!

It's not rude at all. Seeing the babies in costumes is great.
I don't think it's wrong. Baby costumes are so cute. I always wanted to dress one of mine as a pea in the pod. People can bring their babies to my house and I will give the parents candy simply because I got to coo over their kid.
I think it's a little strange to take an infant trick or treating. I dressed mine up and we sat on the porch handing out candy. Obviously if you have older kids that are going, then I would take the infant out with me.
