Finding the Perfect Baby Halloween Costume

Some people have babies to fulfill some type of evolutionary destiny; I had babies so I could dress them up in a funny costume at Halloween.

Below are my favorite picks for infant Halloween costumes. I’ve purposefully picked costumes that mimic pajamas or regular baby clothes and a few that are stroller and carrier friendly.
