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.
Strawberry Berry, berry adorable. This one is nice if you live somewhere warmer too.
Pea Pod Bunting. Nothing is sweeter than a tender little garden vegetable.
Popcorn baby – stroller costume Similar to the above, only for those parents who prefer a stroller!
Ear of Corn bunting (halloweencostumes.com) You can’t really go wrong with a bunting costume for your newborn. Aaaaand here’s where I admit I have a soft spot for babies dressed up as food. Corn on the cob…NOM NOM.
Baby Playing Poker – stroller costume My baby would have had a field day playing with all the stuff on this table.
Baby Octopus I just…I can’t even…oh shit, I just got blinded by the cuteness.
Tootsie Roll Bunting (Amazon) want to eat a whole bag of you. Wait. What?
Sophia from Golden Girls A Pregnant Chicken reader submitted this and I spewed my coffee all over my laptop screen when I saw it. It is PERFECTION. No major cost required and funny as hell.
Carrot bunting (halloweencostumes.com) I mean, come on. Are you kidding me with that hat?!
Oscar the grouch – carrier Another brilliant Pregnant Chicken reader submitted this and I love it, mostly because babies are mostly grouchy when being paraded around, so why not just go with it? (I found a hat here.)
Baby Scuba Diver For those of you with a pacifier baby, this could be the answer to your Halloween prayers.
Pink Bunny (halloweencostumes.com) Adorable. The ears kill me.
Peacock (Amazon) The little bum on this costume is just too much.
Gnome Most babies have a gnome-vibe going on anyway.
Cabbage Patch Kid Once you have the wig you’re all set.
Ventriloquist’s Dummy: Can you say, brilliant to the nice people?
Baby Alien: They come out at night mostly. Mostly.
Nacho Libre: Do you remember when everyone was shouting my name, and I used my strength to rip my blouse?
Baby Taco: To this child I say, “Si” and “Mucho gracias”.
Cabbage Patch Kid: This costume just blows my mind. I’ll take two, please.
Flower Baby: You may have wondered what that high pitched squealing was about an hour ago when I found this picture. Now you know.
Hot Dog Vendor and Hot Dog (with a side of monkey awesome): So simple and so brilliant only made better by the fact that the baby has no idea its dressed up like a wiener.
Curious George and the Man the Big Yellow Hat: How cool is a parent that dresses up tip to toe in yellow? That’s a lucky monkey.
Thing 1 and Thing 2: The precious little faces on these babies makes my teeth ache they are so sweet. If they came to my door their parents would be leaving with Thing None.
