Cute and Adorable Newborn Halloween Costume Ideas
Halloween is probably one of your favorite holidays when you were still a kid. You remember dressing up as a ghost or even your favorite hero and collect as many candies as you can. Now even your little ones can join in the spirit of the holidays with different types of newborn Halloween costume that they can wear.
Costumes are Not All About Fashion
Before you can choose and buy what type of costume you think fits your little one, you should remember these few tips that I know will help you out. Remember that your baby’s costume must not just be cute and adorable but should also fit into these reminders below.
- It should be comfortable and breathable
There is nothing worse in a newborn Halloween costume than being itchy, stiff and uncomfortable. You will end up with a fussy and crying baby for the rest of the day. So make sure that you check if the costume is:
- Fitting snuggly to your baby
- Without any tag or material that can cause itchiness
- Lightweight and not too thick
Having a costume with these factors in mind will make your baby enjoy his or her first Halloween event. In addition, you will get to enjoy how adorable your baby looks especially if they are well relaxed while wearing their costumes.
- It should not be too complicated
Some costumes tend to have a very complicated design. They can have too many zippers, or ties, or ribbons, or even holes. These can make your baby uncomfortable for many reasons. But one of the major reason for their fussiness is that they are being handled too much while they are being dressed up that they get irritated because of it. So make sure to look for a costume that has the following traits:
- Easy to Slip on
- Easy to Takeoff
- Has only one zipper, Velcro or minimal buttons
- Has a similar design that is comparable to a onesie
With a costume designed to have as simple and plain function when worn will surely allow your child to feel relaxed and comfortable all throughout the day. It will also be a great lifesaver when you need to change your baby’s diaper because you can easily remove and dress them up in it.
- It should be made of good quality materials
Choosing a good quality costume must also include good quality materials. Do not buy costumes with fabrics that are too stiff that your baby can’t move as freely as they would want to. Try looking for costumes made of cotton, polyester or even corduroy that are also available of cotton fabric.
- It should look appropriate for you baby
Look for a newborn Halloween costume that matches their age. If you are a fan of gory and weird Halloween costumes, do not add your kid to your motif. Babies should wear adorable and cute costumes because that is what fits them. In addition, having them wear a more complicated costume will bring them discomfort and irritation.
- It should not cost too much
Costumes are indeed a tad more expensive than your usual baby clothes. The reason behind this is because they are specially designed for a particular purpose and that is to make your little ones stand out. But a pricey costume does not necessarily mean that its quality is fitting for your baby. This is where you use your keen eyesight and find a good quality costume made of “baby friendly” material that will not put a hole in your pockets because of its price.
