A cozy turkey onesie for

This long-sleeved Old Navy Unisex Thanksgiving Onesie is perfect for the baby with parents who are football fans. The turkey is holding up a foam finger that says “#1” and definitely feels like a sports reference. This one has a more minimalist design and is really cute if you want something gender-neutral, comfortable, and subtle.


Versatile turkey-patterned bodysuits

These Carter’s Baby’s First Thanksgiving bodysuits offer two different options, which is nice — babies are pretty messy, and an outfit change halfway through dinner is almost inevitable. Start with the “my first Thanksgiving” bodysuit paired with knee sock or leggings, and then switch to the turkey one if necessary.


A cute dress and headband set

If you’re set on having your little one wear a dress to their first Thanksgiving, this Baby Starters My First Thanksgiving set is a great option. It’s a bodysuit attached to a tutu skirt, so it still allows easy access to their diaper and also covers up their diaper as well. The brown and gold colors are perfect for autumn and the matching headband is so sweet. Add knee socks or tights if you’re worried about the chill.


A funny onesie

Baby’s contribution to the dinner? Aside from the generally adorable demeanor, it’s the rolls, of course. This I’ll Bring The Rolls Bodysuit is a good change of pace if you want something simple that doesn’t say “my first Thanksgiving.” You can also get it in toddler and kid sizes in case you wanted to go for the matching theme with the family.


A simple onesie for Baby’s first Thanksgiving

Simple, laid-back, and to-the-point, this My First Thanksgiving Onesie is an inexpensive way to celebrate the holiday with your little one. You can get it in short sleeve or long sleeve and it will pair well with leggings of almost any color. You could also add a tutu skirt and tights or knee socks if you want to dress it up a bit.


A 4-piece outfit

This Starting Out First Thanksgiving Set comes with everything you need to keep your little one comfortable and cute all day on Thanksgiving: a long-sleeve bodysuit, ruffle hem leggings, a matching headband, and even matching socks. The floral wreath around the “my first Thanksgiving graphic” is a nice departure from turkeys and pie.


A Thanksgiving outfit with turkey hat

A long-sleeve onesie and matching striped leggings like this Little Me Unisex Turkey Set will keep baby cozy throughout dinner. The real star of the show, though, is the turkey-inspired beanie. This is a particularly great option if your little one is only a few weeks old and you’re concerned about them catching a chill.


A sweet skirted onesie

Another cute outfit with a matching hat is this Gerber Skirted Bodysuit. Instead of turkeys, this one features sweet potato pie, and, really, who can argue with that? The tutu skirt is attached to a bodysuit for easy diaper changes, and the matching polka dot hat is versatile enough to be worn everyday.


Turkey pajamas they can go straight to bed in

Are there ever really enough outfits with matching hats? No. This Carter’s Just One You Baby Turkey Sleep N’ Play is perfect for the end of the night change before they go to sleep. You can also totally get away with having them wear this all night long, especially for a low-key dinner.


A color-blocked long sleeve with pie pun

Is your baby a pie lover? Honestly, probably not, but it doesn’t really matter. The Pie Kinda Guy Baby Romper from Etsy is such a cute pick that it’s hard to resist. You can pair this with knee socks if you want to keep baby warm, and you can try leggings too (although it might be a bit bulky since it’s a romper). Either way, the color blocking is great.


An organic bodysuit with pie illustration

For a simple onesie option, we love the Finn & Emma Graphic bodysuit. Decorated with a little picture of a perfect piece of pumpkin pie, this one is a sweet choice. Finn & Emma clothes are also all made with GOTS Certified 100% organic cotton and everything is super soft and cozy.


A classic 2-piece set with turkey on the bum

The Children’s Place Unisex Baby First Thanksgiving Outfit is a classic set for your little one. With long sleeves and soft leggings, this will keep them warm and comfy all night long. It’s decorated with turkeys and leaves, and the little turkey on the butt? Too cute.


A long-sleeved Thanksgiving romper with matching hat

This Everyone’s Thankful For Me Romper is, let’s face it, totally true. Everyone is thankful for the sweet little baby at the table. The decorated sleeves are so cute and the matching hat makes the whole outfit. This is such a comfortable pick and it’s also made with bamboo, which makes it super soft and stretchy.


A turkey-themed costume

Dress your little one up like a turkey with this cute Generic Newborn Thanksgiving Outfit. The all brown bodysuit features a turkey’s face on the front, and the back of the matching leggings feature the tail. And, of course, there’s a hat that looks like turkey feathers. It also says “my first Thanksgiving” on the hat, so you get that in there too.

By wearing a My First Thanksgiving outfit, your baby’s introduction to this holiday will be even more special. Any of these options are adorable and perfect for photos.
