With Halloween just around the corner, it's about time to find that special costume- that character you get to be for one night a year instead of yourself. Everyone knows what they want to be but the beauty of having a baby for Halloween is that you get to pick out that cute, little outfit that will embarrass them in family photos 10 years from now. Bonus? Babies are bit too young for candy so take them trick-or-treating and keep all those yummy treats for yourself. After months of dirty diapers and sleepless nights, it's the least your little monster can offer.
Babies Best Halloween Costumes
Babies first Halloween! AKA: an excuse to dress them up and eat all their candy! Here is a list of both adorable and original costumes along with customer reviews.
Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!
What's cuter than a baby animal? A baby dressed as a baby animal! These plush costumes are sure to keep baby warm and their adorable animal designs are sure to bring plenty of "awes" while prancing around town in search of candy.
~Just one of 118 5 Star Amazon reviews on the InCharacter Infant Monkey Costume:
"After buying and trying a whole bunch of costumes for my one year old, this one was the best by far!!!! Sizing is excellent, fabric was great! He actually liked likes being in it and doesn't want to remove the headpiece! The inside lining of the outfit is like a satin feel, keeps the coolness next to the skin! And quality is very very good!!!"
Maybe instead of fur, give your baby some feathers; perhaps an owl, a peacock, or a chicken!
~A closer review of the "What a Hoot" owl:
"This costume is adorable. The 18-24 month size fits my 19 month old daughter perfectly (she's about 26-30 lbs, and 30-33 inches tall). The hat is a separate piece, which is convenient for toddlers/babies who don't like to have anything on their head for long periods of time. The feet are also separate, which is good because they are difficult for a wobbly toddler to walk in. And there are snaps along the bottom for diaper changes. I definitely recommend this costume!"
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Early Years
Even the Ninja Turtles had to start out as babies. With the revamped TMNT movie this year, these costumes are going to be especially popular with older kids- why not let the youngest ones join in on all the turtle fun?
The costume pictured to the right is for babies 0-6 months but these costumes are easy to find in any size for any age range.
Let the world know how much of a nerd you are by dressing up your little one in these hilarious, adorable costumes! They are sure to be heir to the throne of "King of the Nerds."
From "Vikings" to "Game of Thrones" to "Star Wars," there is a costume for every nerdy baby out there.
~The Viking is a little more expensive but the costume itself has rave reviews from Amazon parents:
"My 20 month old was the hit of every Halloween function we went to this year. The costume was delivered fast, it is lined and roomy enough to have him fully dressed (which is good because it was cold on Halloween). The hat is awesome, its a soft Viking hat and the beard attaches to the hat with Velcro (we added additional Velcro to keep it in place). My boy is on the stocky side and wears a 24 months, the Large worked great."
Good Enough to Eat!
Instead of dressing your baby up as a pumpkin, as countless parents do, why not a Ketchup packet? It's much more original and certainly more likely to leave an impression on your neighbors when you ask for candy. Might I suggest checking out the adult Hot Dog costumes to go along with your little Ketchup packet?
~A few Amazon reviews:
"I absolutely love this costume! It was original and such a hit. The materials were not cheap and the details were perfect. Will buy from again!"
"My son is Four.months and 13 pounds. This costume has plenty of room and is a thick felt. Happy with my purchase."
"I was a bit worried about how easy this costume would be to get on- size of head opening was totally fine and easy. Comfortable material. Exactly as pictured and imagined. Cute, unique costume."
Ghosts and goblins can be seen in every direction in October. A sweeter and more interesting alternative is a friendly monster costume. Head to toe faux fur is definitely helpful for keeping the little one warm on All Hallows Eve. At around $30, these monsters are available for a great price.
"I bought this costume for Halloween for my almost 1 year old. I tried it on her and it's true to size. It's absolutely cute! Very fluffy and has vibrant colors. She is going to be the most adorable little monster on Halloween!" ~Amazon customer on "Rubie's Costume Noah's Ark Pinky Winky Monster Romper Costume."
