No matter how much you love Halloween, it's easy for the holiday to sneak up on you, especially if you have a baby. It's not like your 6-month-old can ask to dress like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, you know? Which is why you need some last-minute Halloween costumes for babies. All hope is not lost just because you didn't buy your baby an expensive pumpkin costume. There are plenty of last-minute Halloween ideas for babies that are adorable, budget-friendly, and most likely hanging in your kid's closet already.
Homemade costumes are adorable, sure, but who has the time or the energy to create some incredible spider costume for a baby who's just learning to move by scooting on their belly? Even older babies have no idea what Halloween is all about and, I hate to break it to you, but they are probably going to sleep through any activity you have planned. I made a cat costume for my little girl's first Halloween and everyone thought she was a penguin. Plus, she slept through the entire night and I think I only scored one picture with her. It was basically kind of pointless. I don't regret it, but I am grateful I didn't spend a bunch of money on a costume she was going to sleep in, you know?
So get your baby in the Halloween spirit with these 13 last-minute Halloween costumes for babies. Easy to put together, adorable, and everyone will totally know what they are supposed to be. Lucky.
