How could we make an already adorable chubster of a baby any cuter? You put him in a furry animal costume! Today, I want to share with you my absolute favorite Halloween costumes for babies and young toddlers, but first, a quick story.
Last year, Liam was a BOO for Halloween. You know, the ghostly kind. The costume was from Carter’s and I liked it. It was innocent and cute. Exactly what you want for your two-month-old. We did not go trick or treating, honestly, we didn’t even celebrate because, well, he was too young. But I still got him the costume because of photos, duh.
When this September was upon us, I started looking for this year’s perfect costume. I cannot tell you how much I searched. Baby costumes are one of my all-time favorite things. I looked through every single online shop and I would always end up in the same spot, starring at the same costumes with glossy eyes and a hopeful heart (hello, Pottery Barn kids).
I fell absolutely and completely in love with their woodland animal costumes. Gosh, I wanted to get Liam that goat costume so bad. You read that right, goat. Never in a million years did I think that I would dress my toddler as a goat, but at that moment that was all my heart desired. As soon as I saw the price, though, my baby goat dreams were shattered. There was no way that I would spend sixty-nine dollars on a one-time-use item. No way!
So I did what I always do when I want something I cannot afford. I checked the website every single day until the item went on sale. Haha. I checked at work, I checked in the bathroom, and I checked before going to bed. I obsessed over this costume for almost two weeks and now, well now the price has been brought down to forty dollars. Forty dollars, mamas.
A hefty price for something he will only use one day, but definitely a much manageable one.
And so here we are, three weeks before Halloween and the most amazing woodland animal costumes on sale. Below are my absolute favorites!
