Baby’s First Halloween
It's so exciting to see your baby all dressed up in his or her first Halloween costume. Well, actually, the pleasure is for Mom and Dad and all others who love your baby. It's one photo opportunity that you probably don't want to miss as this only happens once.
There are a lot of cute baby Halloween costumes out there. Whether you have an infant, a 6-months old baby or older, there are many choices for your child. The style of costume may be in any one of these three forms:
1. Baby Bunting Costumes
Many of the costumes for babies are in the form of bunting, some people call them “snuggle sacks.” A classic example is a pea pod costume.
2. Baby Costumes With Tops and Bottoms
If you have a baby that is a few months older, then a costume with legs instead of a bunting may be more appropriate. It makes diaper changes easy.
3. Baby Romper Costumes
Romper costumes have the legs separated, but the total costume is still one piece.
At this age, infant costumes must be simple and cozy. It’s wise to get costumes that don’t include face masks or makeup additions. The baby will just pull off the masks, while makeup can irritate the sensitive skin of a baby.
Baby Girl Halloween Costumes
If your baby is a girl, some classic Halloween costumes include a pumpkin patch or a witch. But then you can dress her up in any costume you fancy. She can be princess Snow White, Cinderella or a little mermaid. She can wear a pink rabbit costume or an infant angel costume. Just put a feathered halo and angel wings on her for that cherubic shot.
Baby girls can also dress up as superheroes -- as Wonder woman or supergirl. There are also other cute costumes for babies like a baby flower costume, a yellow banana, and a chili pepper.

Baby Boy Halloween Costumes
Classic baby boy costumes to wear on Halloween night include the baby devil, a scary winged bat or an eight-legged spider. The color theme of these costumes are generally black, purple and orange.
Skeletons are likewise classic baby Halloween costume options for boys. Usually, this costume is a one piece jumpsuit, with or without hoods or glow in the dark feature.
Other Halloween costumes that are coming back in popularity include vampires and pirates. The Hollywood movies like Twilight and Pirates of the Caribbean made these costumes bestsellers again.
The vampire costumes for boys usually come with a red bow tie and a silky cape. It would probably be better to skip the makeup of a pale face and blood dripping from the mouth since babies will just smudge it and it could irritate their sensitive skin.
Some mom and dads might want to dress up their baby boys as Superheroes. There are plenty of superhero costume ideas, from the Classic Superman to Captain America and the Flash.
