Welcoming your new bundle of joy into the world is such a joyous occasion. As a mom, we all look forward to dressing our babies for and any occasion, Halloween being one of them!
The only thing cuter than the baby itself, is the baby in a Halloween costume! There’s no limits as to how much fun you can have dressing your baby for Halloween and introducing them to their first costume.
You can coordinate their costume with yours, or go for the cute Halloween costumes like lions, pumpkins and unicorns that you always navigate towards during your shopping trips. I know I can’t be the only one who does this – even before my youngest child.
Go for your favorite storybook or movie characters, your favorite animals, or even a little spooky like a baby vampire or ghost. The options are endless and no matter what you choose to dress baby in, they’ll turn out adorable.
Here are a few things you want to consider before buying your newborn Halloween costume:
Go for comfort. All costumes may be cute, but they may not be made equal in comfort. Choose softer fabrics to avoid irritating baby’s skin. You also want to avoid anything that’s too tight for baby around the face, arms, legs and hands.
Consider diaper changes. This is a baby we’re talking about, so you want to make sure you have easy access to the diaper area. Look for costumes that have the snaps at the bottom versus slipping baby into a costume without them.
Check the weather. Plan your activities accordingly and be sure to check the weather. You don’t want baby too hot, or too cold while out and about. Always consider bringing a layer with you and extra blankets.
