Of course you need Halloween costume ideas for your baby and toddler. And it’s never too early to start planning ahead. Lucky for you, baby Halloween costumes generally come in toddler sizes as well, to help narrow down your search.
You want costumes that are, of course, as cute and Instagramable as humanly possible. Because after all, you have a limited amount of time to publicly humiliate your child by dressing him as a duck or her as a dragon. Once you’ve satisfied your aesthetic needs, make sure the costume is easy to put on and take off, for any inevitable diaper changes. And bonus points if they’re warm.
