How to Choose the Right Halloween Costume for Your Baby


Besides being irresistibly cute, safety and comfort are important considerations in choosing a Halloween costume for your baby.

Scroll to Continue

Bunting costumes, for example, are only suitable for the infant who is not yet crawling and will not mind a costume that would restrict their movement. Crawlers need room to move and so do beginning walkers. In addition, babies just learning to walk may not be able to balance if a costume is too bulky or doesn't fit properly.

Costumes with tails that can be tripped on or that have large padded headgear can be disorienting to a small child learning to walk as well as hazardous. Capes, skirts and pants that are too long will cause your toddler to trip and fall.

It is also important to make sure that hoods, hats or other accessories do not interfere with the child's ability to see and hear. Babies and toddlers should not wear masks. Masks can slip and cause problems breathing. I would also avoid using Halloween make-up products on babies. If you want to add whiskers or freckles, safe child-approved face paints are a better choice, but be sure to keep them away from mouth and eyes and remove thoroughly afterwards. If your child shows any indication of a reaction such as itching, a rash or redness, irritation, remove the paint immediately and call your pediatrician.

Props can also be a danger. Avoid sharp points, long pointy plastic items, and anything with ties or small enough to swallow or too heavy for the child.

If you intend to have your child wear the costume for more than a photo op, be sure there is easy access for diaper changes.

Most age-appropriate infant and toddler costumes sold in the U.S. are made according to safety standards, but you still need to be aware and check for the use of small parts that could come off and be choking hazards. In addition, especially with the popularity of using candles in jack-o-lanterns and for Halloween ambiance, the costume should be made of flame-retardant fabric.

If you are taking a baby along for Halloween trick-or-treating, you should also consider the weather and be sure your baby is warm or cool enough. A cozy plush costume should not be worn if the weather is warm as the baby will be too hot. Similarly, you don't want to dress baby in a thin light fabric costume in cold weather. You might also want to add some reflective tape to children's costumes or baby's stroller for added visibility if out after dark.

Whether you purchase or make a costume for your child, be sure it is safe, comfortable and well-fitting. Halloween is meant to be fun and with a little vigilance, you can ensure that it is.
