Baby Halloween Costumes.jpg


There is nothing that makes "cheek pinchers" swoon quite like a little baby. You might not be taking your newborn door-to-door hunting for candy, but on Halloween night it's still fun to dress them up in costume, regardless. Is there anything better than dressing up a cute little baby in a costume that they you love? It is important to take advantage of one of the only years where your child won't mock your taste in costumes or refuse to wear it. Your baby's first year of life is filled with lots of milestones and candid moments that can all be celebrated in costume one way or another. Whether you need newborn picture ideas, a Santa Claus outfit for your little guy's first Christmas, or the perfect baby Halloween costume, we've got just what you are looking for and so much more!



Cozy Costumes

Puppy Costume - Shop       Pink Bunny Costume - Shop


If you have a newborn, chances are they will sleep the whole night away anyway. If you want to keep them warm and cozy all while looking adorable, these are some great options. They are cuddly for baby and convenient for mom and dad. These costumes allow for easy transporting in the carseat so you don't have to take the costume on and off all night long, and most importantly, you don't have to wake your sleeping baby!



Animal and Insect Costumes

Isn't it amazing how some of the most feared insects and animals can be some of the most adorable looks for a baby? Animals are a very popular choice for kids' costumes, babies especially. Do you want a friendly bumble bee, a lion that's less than ferocious, or the cutest little peacock? Whatever animal or insect you choose, one thing is for certain: that baby of yours will be off the charts of the cuteness meter!



Superhero Costumes

Your little one might not be up for fighting crime quite yet, but it's still fun to pretend! Do you have a bold Wonder Woman, a handsome Dark Knight, or perhaps a little Houdini who can scale the wall just like Spider-Man? They may not be able to fly (or even walk for that matter), but they sure seem to have supersonic speed when it's trouble they are after. The Flash would be proud!



Under the Sea Costumes

Clown Fish Costume - Shop       Whale Costume - Shop       Turtle Costume - Shop


Have you ever been snorkeling in an impressive reef, or watched Finding Nemo and realized how cool marine life really is? A 150 year old sea turtle? Where can WE get one of those?! Sure, sharks are a little scary, but when you put a baby inside a shark costume, there's no longer anything to fear! Pick up an under the sea themed costume for your little shrimp this year and you won't be disappointed.



Costume Hats for Babies

Hats aren't just for Halloween. It has become an increasingly popular trend for newborns to be photographed with different hats and outfits so that all of the relatives can gawk at their cuteness. Not only are crocheted and knitted hats used for pictures, but a lighter hat is also perfect for chilly spring and fall months. Animals aren't just a popular Halloween trend, but many hats are now made to resemble some of the cutest critters (besides your own, that is).


Holiday Costumes

Football Sunday might not be an official holiday (don't tell football fans), but it is still worthy of mention in this category, since one of the largest social gatherings takes place on Super Bowl Sunday! Christmas is also a fun time of year to dress up your little tyke. Santa, an elf, a reindeer, or the cutest snowman you've ever seen. Chances are they will be the best present under your Christmas tree this year. (And the cutest, of course!)

Did your baby just spend nine months on the inside and is still accustomed to that snuggly home?

They will keep your child warm and wrapped tightly, giving them the secure feeling they love so much. Do you think these come in adult sizes? A nap sounds great right about now!
