Halloween Safety

At Home

  • Keep candles and lit jack-o-lanterns on high shelves, out of your child’s reach. If you are setting out jack-o-lanterns, use Pumpkin Lights instead of a real candle. These tiny lights flicker to mimic a real flame.

  • Inspect your child’s candy for suspicious pieces, evidence of tampering, razors or pins, or candy that could pose a choking hazard. Don’t eat any homemade treats, unless you know and trust the person who made them.

  • Keep your pets secure in the house. The commotion and bustle of the night can spook and make even the friendliest of animals act aggressively.

  • As much as your child may want to help you carve the pumpkin, the sharp knives and even the special pumpkin-carving tools can injure tiny hands. Let him or her scoop out the seeds or decorate the pumpkin with stickers or paint instead.

From all of us here at BabyWeekly, have a happy and safe Halloween!
