Last year was my son’s first Halloween. He was only a little over month old at the time, but we still dressed him up and took him out alongside his big sister. It was so much fun. Even though the littlest ones won’t remember it, there will always be photos and memories to look back on. Choosing your baby’s first Halloween costume can be so much fun. There are so many adorable options, and you can even opt for a total family costume!
While I have been trying to convince my husband that we must do the Labyrinth as a family costume this year, he just hasn’t gone for it. I think it would be perfect. but my husband refuses to wear the tight pants of David Bowie and dress up as the goblin king ( even though he could totally pull it off). Since he is being a party pooper, I have been browsing around for costumes, and found some really wonderful ones that I wanted to share that would be perfect for a baby’s first Halloween ( or even their second).

Baby’s First Halloween Costume
Baby’s first (or second) Halloween is typically more for the parents really. They won’t be the ones eating the candy, and they won’t even remember it. As a parent though, I just cannot pass up dressing my little man up in an adorable costume and taking him trick or treating with his big sister. I mean, baby costumes are just so darn cute!
So one of my favorite Halloween costume ideas is to do a family costume. It gets the whole family involved and is just a good time. As I mentioned earlier, my husband was not down to dress up as the Goblin King for my Labyrinth idea, but there are so many other themes to choose from that include baby!
In my house, we are super hero fanatics. While Marvel tends to beat out DC in our home, we still love some Batman. You can get really fun superhero costumes and go all out as a family. One idea that we have been tossing around has been dressing up as the Avengers. Hubs would be Dr. Strange, I would go as Black Widow, Willow decided on Spiderman because why not, and Luca would be baby Hulk! I was able to find all of these costumes reasonably priced on Amazon as well!
We also discussed doing a DC theme. Willow really likes the idea of being Wonder Woman and her brother being Batman. My husband and I thought it would be fun to go as the villains Poison Ivy and the Joker.
Disney is always a fun go to for a family themed costume. You can just pick a movie and there are usually costumes available for all of the characters. Moana is a big one this year, and I think having Luca dress up as Maui and Willow as Moana would be adorable. It is a little harder to find adult costumes for this one, but I think I could make a Te ka and a Te Fiti costume to go along with them.
Another option that we have tossed around has been an Alice in Wonderland theme. I mean, how cute would a baby Cheshire cat be? Hubs would be an awesome Mad Hatter, I can go ad the Queen of Hearts, and Willow would of course be Alice.
Okay, I had to put this one in here. I am still hopeful that one year I will get my dream family costume. Seriously, this would be so much fun! The Goblin King would be easy to pull off with a pair of leather pants and a blonde wig! Baby Toby would be a simple enough costume with a red striped shirt and then a fancy princess dress for Willow to pull off Sarah. I am honestly not sure who I would be but I am sure I could figure out something.
