8 Halloween Adorable Costumes for Mom and Baby
Want to dress up with your baby this Halloween? Check out these costume ideas for mom and baby that are the very definition of cuteness overload.
Who says you can’t celebrate Halloween night to the fullest with a baby in tow? With a sprinkle of creativity, you can team up with your mini-me and, dare we say, double the fun. Think of all the adorable you can take! Below is a round-up of the most aww-some matching mom-and-baby costume ideas that will turn heads and melt hearts.
Lilo and Stitch
Much like your bundle of joy, Stitch is as adorable as he is mischievous. The blue alien is inseparable from his partner in crime, Lilo, which makes these matching Halloween costumes extra-charming.
Dress your bub in a snug blue onesie to replicate Stitch’s fluffy fur. To copy Lilo’s look, opt for a simple red dress and adorn it with white cut-out leaves made of felt. Bonus points if you pose with props like a ukulele or paper leis!
Woody and Buzz
Name a more iconic duo than the sheriff and the space ranger. Their friendship goes to infinity and beyond, surviving captives and even incinerators (remember THAT scene?). It only makes sense to kick off your first with your baby as these beloved characters.
Invest in a Buzz’s suit if you’re not up to DIY it. To capture Woody’s Wild West charm, all it takes is a cowboy hat, a shirt, and jeans.
Princess Leia and Baby Yoda
What’s cuter than a baby? A baby dressed up as baby Yoda, that’s what! While Grogu never met Leia, they’re arguably the two most recognizable characters from the Star Wars universe.
You don’t need a lot of accessories to pull off this mom-and-baby look. Style your hair in two and don an all-white draped ensemble. For your precious babe: wrap them in a blanket like a burrito and tie everything together with a Yoda hat, which takes less than an hour to crochet!
Edna Mode and Jack-Jack
Are you currently sporting with bangs? Is there a red onesie somewhere inside your baby’s drawer? Do you have a blatant disdain for capes? If you answered "Check, check, check!" look no further, dahling.
Step into the fabulous shoes of Edna Mode and transform your tiny tot into Jack-Jack. This is one of the easiest DIY Halloween costume ideas and it’s sure to spark lots of giggles. Plus, it costs next to nothing!
Beekeeper and Bee
This beekeeper always takes care of her bay-bee and they’re buzzing together on Halloween.
To make these mom-and-baby costumes come to life, you’ll need a few essentials. Start with a white overall and gloves as your protective gear. Of course, the look wouldn’t be complete without the signature beekeeping hat. Create the veil by gluing an open mesh netting to a white wide-brimmed hat. Lastly, slip your bub into a bee romper. Now you’re ready to “harvest” some sweet treats.
Darla and Nemo
Remember the brace-faced, redhead girl from Finding Nemo? Darla provides much of the comedic relief in the movie and is a 10/10 choice of Halloween costume.
If you have a purple sweater lying around, you’re already halfway to recreating her schoolgirl attire. Don’t forget to cast your baby as the curious Nemo, too.
Dorothy and Cowardly Lion
Journey along the yellow brick road with these mom-and-baby costumes. They’re not only swoon-worthy but also a breeze to put together.
Wear a gingham dress to embody Dorothy and slide on some red pumps. Last on your to-do list is ordering a baby lion costume online that’s sure to make your moppet look irresistibly cuddly.
Pirate and Parrot
Got your eye set on a treasure? Set sail for a high-seas adventure with your feathered friend, the (super cute) parrot.
An eye patch and parrot costume are non-negotiables. For the pirate garb, style a baggy white shirt with tights (or a flowing skirt), boots, and a plastic sword. Top it off with a tricorn hat or bandana covering your head. If you want to go all out, smudge black eyeliner around your eyes for that extra swashbuckling look.
Dressing Up With Baby: Some Precautions
Taking your baby on their first trick-or-treating is a great opportunity to bond, but it does come with its own set of challenges. Their comfort should be the top priority. Before heading out, consider the weather conditions on Halloween night and dress your baby accordingly.
Avoid outfits made from itchy fabrics, elastics, or anything with a rough texture. Most importantly, protect your baby’s delicate skin by cleansing it with Baby Dove Hair To Toe Rich Moisture Wash. This pediatrician- and dermatologist-approved hair and body wash contains prebiotic moisturizer and 100% skin-natural nutrients that help replenish essential hydration moisture. After bath time, apply Baby Dove Rich Moisture Lotion with a pH-neutral and hypoallergenic formula suitable for newborns. It will leave your little one’s skin soft and hydrated for up to 24 hours.
