Oh Baby! Halloween Costumes for Little Ones


Babies and toddlers are always cute, but why not amp up the adorable factor with these precious Halloween costumes? They're perfect for baby's first Halloween, toddler trick-or-treating, or dress-up play time.

Baby’s first or second (or third!) Halloween is always a great time to make memories. Whether they toddle themselves along during trick-or-treating or accompany older siblings in a stroller or carrier, they can dress up as teeny versions of beloved animals and characters. Take it from these New York metro-based moms and costume sites: Everything’s cuter in miniature!

Little Devin is paws-itively adorable in a lion costume his mom found at a resale shop, but he “wanted nothing to do with it after wearing it for 10 minutes and soon became a mane-less lion at the ‘Wear It Again’ costume party,” says party host and Long Island mom Kimberly of Valley Stream Mom.
