For me, Halloween is so much more fun now that I have babies. I don’t really enjoy costumes for myself, but I love costumes on adorable kids.
For my daughter’s first Halloween, she was only 9 months old, so the costume was entirely for me. She couldn’t care less. She was an adorable ladybug, but it wasn’t a very practical costume considering we spent the evening driving to visit her grandparents and friends, so we had to take it off every time we put her in her car seat.
I read somewhere on the Interwebs about an amazing trick: add a dog costume to your baby carrier and voila, baby is in costume! I tried it out with a pumpkin and loved it. We wore it to the pumpkin patch and Target.
It’s easier to add a costume to a baby carrier than to a baby. This year, my little guy will be 6 months old for Halloween. Rather than pull the toddler in the wagon and push the little man in a stroller, I plan to wear him. My daughter wants to be Princess Sofia, so I am going to try to dress her brother as Sofia’s sidekick, Clover the bunny.
To find the best Babywearing Halloween Costumes, I turned to some of the most creative mamas I know: members of our Facebook group, the Mob. Here are some of the best costumes submitted.
Shared by Donnica B: make a DIY no-sew costume. Decorate a 4T t-shirt and slide it over your Tula Baby Carrier. Pair it with a hat for a complete costume!
