Costume Safety Tips to Make Sure Your Halloween Goes Off Without A Hitch, Part 2 (https://goo.gl/72MDuP)

Halloween is just around the corner, and most American children celebrate by dressing up in a fun or spooky costume and go door to door trick or treating, march in a school or town parade, or participate in a carnival, festival, or party of some sort. But wearing costumes can sometimes pose safety hazards, especially if the outfit obstructs your view, hinders your ability to walk or move as you normally would, or contains sharp elements that can be a hazard.

Here's the second half of our list of safety tips to ensure your Halloween celebration doesn't include a trip to the emergency room.

6. Make sure your child's costume doesn't impede their ability to walk. Any shoes should fit properly and the length of the costume should allow your child to move freely.

7. Be aware of any sharp edges on masks and make sure they fit your child properly to avoid cuts or scrapes.

8. Ask your child to remove any masks when walking from house to house for better vision.

9. Don't let your kids change their eye color with nonprescription cosmetic contact lenses. These are often unregulated and can damage eyes.

10. Make sure you and your trick-or-treaters are visible by using reflective treat bags. Bring flashlights with new batteries or use "glow sticks" for walking.

Costume Safety Tips to Make Sure Your Halloween Goes Off Without A Hitch (https://goo.gl/72MDuP)

Halloween is just around the corner, and most boys and girls in the U.S. celebrate by dressing up in a fun or spooky costume and go door to door trick or treating, march in a school or town parade, or participate in a carnival, festival, or party of some sort. But wearing costumes can sometimes pose safety hazards, especially if the outfit obstructs your view, hinders your ability to walk or move as you normally would, or contains sharp elements that can be a hazard.

Here are ten safety tips to ensure your Halloween celebration doesn't include a trip to the emergency room.

1. Make sure your store-bought or homemade costumes that are bright, reflective, and can be seen in low light conditions.

2. If they are not already highly visible, consider adding reflective tape or striping to costumes.

3. Check the label on your child's costume to ensure it's made of flame-retardant material.

4. If your child's costume has a prop such as a knife or a pitchfork, make sure that it's soft and flexible. That way, if he or she falls or trips, your child or someone else will not be injured by sharp or hard edges.

5. Before the big day, test out all face paint and costume makeup to make sure your child doesn't develop a rash or other skin reaction.

Check back tomorrow for the second half of this list!

A Look at Your Fertility Timeline: Ages 41 to 45+ (https://goo.gl/VrZbqj)

As you age, your chances for conceiving naturally take a nose dive. Technological advancements make dreams of starting a family later in life possible, however. Here's a peek into what your fertility looks like at ages 41 to 45 and older.

According to research from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), birthrates for women between the ages of 40 and 44 increased by two percent between 2016 and 2017. Even more interesting, the fastest growing age range for women having a child is the over-forty group.

While these stats can be encouraging for older couples looking to begin a family, bear in mind that the overall numbers of births being had in these age ranges are much less than those in younger groups.

By age forty, your body is preparing for menopause. Even if you won't actually begin this stage of life for a few years, your body is preparing to no longer be fertile. By the time most women reach their fifties, they will have no more follicles left. Babies born to women in this age range also are at a heightened risk for birth defects, chromosomal disorders, and other health complications. Women who become pregnant at this stage also are at a higher risk for side effects like diabetes, hypertension, and preeclampsia.

A Look at Your Fertility Timeline: Ages 36 to 40 (https://goo.gl/HmERTL)

If you are considering starting a family, it's a good idea to know what the state of your fertility is. All other factors aside, age plays a huge part in whether or not you'll have any difficulty conceiving. In fact, from the day of your first menstrual period, your fertility is on the decline.

There is no point in your life where your fertility goes through as sharp a decline as when you are in your late 30s and early 40s. The chances of a woman in her late 30s conceiving spontaneously are around half that of a female in her early 20s.

Though a study published in 2003 found that 60 percent of couples in this age range were able to conceive naturally within a year of trying, and 85 percent were able within two years, it is important to note that you are at a significantly higher risk for complications and chromosomal issues at this age. This means that the risks of miscarriage and abnormal pregnancy are never higher than during this time frame.

A Look at Your Fertility Timeline: Ages 31 to 35 (https://goo.gl/gPKd3D)

Chances are, if you are considering starting a family in the near future, you know that your chances for conception are linked to your age, generally speaking. As we get older, our fertility naturally begins to decline.

For the majority of women, after age 30 is when fertility begins to drop off. For women in their early 30s, the chances of conception are still quite high. Your fecundity rate, or the odds you'll produce viable, healthy eggs, decreases gradually until age 32, at which point it begins to speed up, rapidly declining at age 37.

To generalize, you are half as fertile in your thirties as you were in your twenties. But if you are in or approaching your third decade, don't despair. According to statistics from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), one in five American women become pregnant with their first child after the age of 35. However, it is important to note that 1 in 3 couples in their 30s will experience some type of infertility issue.
