Moms Share: Baby’s First Halloween Costume Ideas

The first year of a baby’s life is full of firsts. From the first smile to the first step, we embrace every first moment and document the memories. A baby’s first Halloween is no exception and that first Halloween costume for baby is an important decision for most parents. Do you go traditional and cute or choose a more standard Halloween costume?

My daughter’s first Halloween costume was a cheerleader costume and my baby boy dressed as Yoda last year for his first Halloween. We definitely did not go the traditional route for our babies’ first Halloween costumes. What have other parents done for baby’s first Halloween? Check out what these moms did for their baby’s first Halloween costumes!
