Thank you to Zippy from Champagne Living for sharing this article with us as we are new parents of an almost 8-week-old and will be celebrating his very first Halloween in a few weeks.
Celebrating your baby’s first Halloween is a fun and heartwarming experience that brings joy to both parents and little ones alike. Imagine the older brothers and sisters helping to pick out a costume or have the baby in the carriage as they go house to house. While your infant may not be old enough to embark on the traditional trick-or-treating adventure, there’s a world of excitement in dressing them up in adorable Halloween inspired PJ, reading them some not-very-scary Halloween stories, and cuddling with soft stuffed animals that embody the spirit of the season. It’s a magical opportunity for parents to create lasting memories and start cherished family traditions, all while relishing in the sheer cuteness of their little pumpkin, ghost, or fairy. So, as the crisp autumn air settles in, let’s explore the enchantment and wonder of celebrating a baby’s first Halloween in a way that’s as heartwarming as it is fun.

Costumes from Scratch
Creating homemade Halloween costumes for infants can be so much fun. Here are a couple of very simple, and adorable options
The classic “Baby Pumpkin” costume. Start with a soft orange onesie and add a hat with a green felt stem-shape at the top. To mimic the jack ‘o lantern face you can either draw with fabric paint or sew the eyes and mouth onto the front. This costume is not only cute but also cozy and comfortable for your little one.
I’ve done this for my dog, and I can tell you from experience that this was easy. With a grandbaby that will only be 2 months old on Halloween, making sure that they are comfortable is key. That’s why I love the “Baby Bumblebee” costume. Begin with a black onesie and attach yellow felt stripes down the front. Craft wings using yellow and black felt, attaching them to the back. Top it off with a cute antennae headband made from a black headband and yellow pom-poms. It’s a sweet and easy-to-assemble costume that will have your baby buzzing with cuteness.
Baby’s first Halloween is such a fun milestone filled with adorable homemade costumes and unforgettable moments for mom & dad. It’s a time for making cherished memories, capturing those snapshots, and starting family traditions that will be cherished for years to come. This special day marks the beginning of many more magical Halloweens.
