Your baby’s first Halloween is something to be remembered. It may seem far away now, but it won’t be long before your little one becomes a tween who is “too cool” to trick-or-treat, leaving you scrolling through photos of Halloween past as you cry while eating a whole bag of fun-size Snickers bars. So, all of this is to say your babe needs to dress up in an adorable costume to commemorate the occasion this year, if for no other reason than for you to have plenty of pictures to look back on in the Halloweens to come.

Have you ever seen a sweeter treat than this? The Baby Chocolate Chip Cookie Costume from Pottery Barn Kids includes a double-sided knitted, padded cookie that fits over your boo’s clothes and features sparkly foil chocolate chips. This is cute enough on its own, but it’s (quite literally) topped off with a stretchy chocolate chip hat. Plus, unlike many baby Halloween costumes, this one is made with high-quality materials with the intention of passing it on as a hand-me-down.

Popcorn Bucket Set

Consider this “grown-up-and-me” Movie Usher and Popcorn Costume by Sweet Spooks for a family affair. With a carrier cover designed to look like a popcorn container, this cute baby costume allows you to wear your baby while trick-or-treating or at a family Halloween party. The costume also comes with a little popcorn hat for your babe and an usher hat and bowtie for the grown-up.

Hello Kitty Dress

Well, if this isn’t the cutest cat getup we ever did see. The Hello Kitty baby costume by Sanrio comes with plenty of accessories to transform your baby into the iconic cartoon character. The set includes a dress with a velvet bodice, character snap buttons at the shoulders, an elastic cat ear headband with a plush pink bow, white kitty paw mittens, and white and pink slippers. Meow!

Max (from Where The Wild Things Are) Romper

Turn your sweet baby into Max, the King of The Wild Things, with this iconic Where the Wild Things Are costume by the 2 Trouble Boys Shop on Etsy. The costume set includes a comfy long-sleeve romper with snaps for easy diaper changes, a tail, little claw booties (in brown, black, white, or gray), and a tie-on crown. And now, as Max says, “Let the wild rumpus start!”

Fuzzy Tiger Romper

Your baby can officially join the family pack this Halloween with the Unisex Hooded Tiger Romper from Old Navy. Part of their family matching costume collection, this romper is made from cozy, warm sherpa, features long sleeves, a hood with tiger ears and (soft) fangs, snaps along the inseam for simple changing, and elasticized bubble leg openings. Pair it with some black baby leggings, and your little tiger is ready for a night on the prowl.

Husky Sweater

If you think your kiddo will be uncomfortable in a bulky costume this Halloween, consider a Halloween outfit that’s a little more comfortable, like this adorable Husky Ears Baby Cardigan from Tea Collection. This 100% cotton cardigan features a button closure, a knit design, and hood complete with a sweet husky face and little ears. The best part? This adorable sweater can be worn casually long after Halloween is over.

Ursula Dress

Why be a princess when you can be a spooky, all-powerful sea witch? This baby Ursula costume by Disney is full of details to turn your sweet baby into Triton’s nemesis, including a shimmering dress with a golden shell necklace appliqué (so your little villain will have Ariel’s voice safely stowed away while trick-or-treating), a layered tulle tutu skirt with a metallic purple top layer, and a plush “wig” with an elastic back strap to keep it in place. The dress also features built-in bloomers with snap closure in case Ursula needs a new diaper during her night of mischief.

Red Chicken Suit

There isn’t much to say about this Chicken Costume from Bitsy-Bug Boutique because all you need to do is take one look at it to see how cluckin’ fantastic it is. The one-piece flannel romper features pants and long sleeves, zipper closure, an attached chicken tail, and a hood with a face, beak, and plush feathers. Dress your cutie up in this as a solo costume, or turn it into a whole family costume with a farmer parent and other barnyard animal siblings.

Dinosaur Cape

This Dinosaur Costume Cape from H&M is another great, less bulky infant costume option. The super-soft velour cape is adorned with dinosaur eyes and spikes on the hood and has a velcro closure at the shoulders. If you’re unsure what the weather will be like on Halloween and want to play it safe by dressing your little triceratops in layers, this will keep them warm but not too hot.

Bunny Romper

How can a costume be so simple and so delightful at the same time? Turn your little one into the cutest little rabbit with this Bunny Romper by Simplee. This cotton long-sleeve romper features a zipper closure for easy diaper changes and a hood with two long bunny ears, and it’s available in various colors. It’s the kind of costume that is sure to make the neighbors swoon (and hand over lots of candy) while keeping your babe warm and comfortable. It doesn’t get much better than that.
