There’s something about babies in tiny costumes that just makes Halloween more fun. Sure, infants can’t really trick or treat, and they have no idea what the hell is going on, but picking out that first costume is still one of the biggest perks of new parenthood. Babies can’t argue with you or roll their eyes at your ideas and, in most cases, they serve as the perfect prop.
It’s not always easy to decide what you and your baby should be for Halloween. You could go the traditional route and rock themed costumes, like Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse. Or, you could invent something that’s totally your own. No matter what you decide, you’re going to need some inspiration. That’s why we rounded up some of the funniest, pun-niest, and most creative costumes for babies and parents to help you choose your look.
