Halloween Safety for Toddlers

For Dr. Walkers Daughter Zara we choose a collapsable lightsaber to prevent injuries and a light-weight flannel robe that doesn't flow to much so as to prevent tripping!  And of course Baby Jedi's are always cool!!

Costume safety is the primary concern for a safe and happy Halloween for toddlers.  Follow these basic tips when making or selecting your childs’ costume to keep them safe.

* To keep toddler’s on their feet, avoid costumes with long tails or costumes that  that don’t fit well.       

* Keep your toddler visible by using reflective tape or having them wear a glittery costume.

* Beware of Pointy Props such as crowns, swords or other fake weapons.  You can sew stuffed ones or make foam ones instead.

* Choose Costumes that practice fire safety and keep fire away from them as many of the store bought costumes can be flammable and hot jack-o-latterns can be hazardous.

* Choose non toxic paint over a wearing a mask since masks can make breathing hard and difficult to see out.

* Be aware of props that can frighten or cause physical harm since a toddler will be curious of witches or lighted coffins.

* After an evening of trick-or-treating, check all candy for tampering; consider swapping the candy for healthier alternatives.
