Halloween is a holiday that often stirs strong opinions. Some see it as a fun celebration, while others may prefer to overlook this stateside tradition. Nonetheless, if you are a parent of a very young baby, whether an infant or a few months old, you might be looking forward to celebrating their first Halloween together.
To help you prepare for this special occasion and mark your baby's first Halloween on your My Baby Days 'All My Firsts' milestones print, we've gathered some cute first costume ideas for you:
1. Adorable Pumpkin
For a classic costume, dress your baby as an adorable pumpkin. A soft and comfortable onesie with a pumpkin-shaped hood will make everyone smile. If your baby can sit up unaided, you can even create a real pumpkin seat.
2. Witch or Wizard in the Making
Transform your baby into a budding witch or wizard with a little black dress and a pointed hat. Opt for a foam wand to complete the enchanting look.
3. Funny Foods
Let your creativity run wild by turning your baby into a variety of funny foods. Choose a baby tamago sushi or dress them as a cute mushroom with an adorable mushroom-shaped hat. You could also opt for a grape costume.

When choosing a costume for your baby, make sure it's age-appropriate and safe for them. Babies are delicate, so it's essential that the costume is comfortable and free of small parts that could be ingested.

Whether you're a staunch Halloween enthusiast or a skeptic, dressing your baby in an adorable costume is an excellent way to create precious memories. Have a great time and we hope that you enjoy your baby's first Halloween as a family.
