Q&A: Do babies wear Halloween costumes?

Hey, divorce! 1. Writing Through your Divorce: The Blog

a read. 2. Flourish Through Divorce registrations are in process for
the November 4 start workshop that stretches across the holidays. Pass it on to
anyone you know who might be interested. 3. I wrote a piece for HuffPo
Divorce about the whole moving-in-with-Doug thing

Do
people do Halloween costumes for babies? My LO is going to be 7 months
at Halloween and I see all the cute bunting costumes but doesn’t it seem
a little silly? And I’m not going to take her trick or treating, since
no houses will be handing out mashed sweet potatoes, I’m sure. Do I just
wait until next year?

Back when my 11-year-old was 8 months old at his first Halloween, I sewed (yes) him this elaborate turkey costume.  Why a turkey? Because I knew it was probably the only year I’d be able to choose his costume without his input so I should make it good. It was fantastic, with a light brown body and wing and tail feathers made of felt that snapped on and off, and a headpiece with a waddle.

So if you ask me, yes, people dress their babies in costumes. But we were also in NYC at the time, so we just took him to the children’s costume parade at Washington Square Park, and he got to parade around and show off his costume. I can’t imagine that we would have taken him trick or treating at that age unless we were trying to get candies for ourselves.

But what do people do in parts of the country without Halloween parades? Do you take babies trick or treating? Do you dress them and just hang out? Or do you wait a year or two?  

I’m going to guess that this varies regionally, so if you give a data point could you also tell us where you are?

  1. Dress and hang out! I love Halloween. No way my 6 week old was not getting into it last year. We did a onesie with a glow-in-the-dark skeleton and heart, nothing elaborate, but fun to have her with me as we handed out candy. (Nursing in the dark was a bit weird that night..) A year later we will be going for a Least Creative Costume streak. Pumpkin outfit is ready and waiting. In but not from Dallas; I’d have done the same wherever (even in my last house in Saline, MI where there were no trick-or-treaters in the neighborhood.. I’m a sucker for Halloween, what can I say?).

  2. I’m in a major city in Canada, and yes, I put both kids in costumes as infants (they are both June babies, so 4 mos old) – mostly just for photos and we went to visit a few family members. No candy. Just for cuteness. I actually knit a Yoda hat for the first one which we reused for #2.

  3. I did not do costumes when my babies were 9 months old, and now I regret it, because those costumes are usually both cute and cheap, and it would be nice to have a baby photo to add to the photo collage of costumes we’ve taken over the years. But that’s ALL it would have been — a photo op. (A super-CUTE photo op, though.) The second year, when the babies were 21 months old, we bought those furry animal costumes but mostly because a friend’s daughter celebrated her birthday party at a pumpkin patch/pick-your-own-raspberries place. Then the babies wore those costumes and ran around like maniacs while I answered the door on Halloween. They didn’t actually trick-or-treat until they were 2-1/2.

    My sense from Facebook is that everyone I know with a baby seems to do the infant costume route. Which, when I think about it, makes sense, because just about everything except for onesies and those footie snap-up suits is a form of dress-up, right? At least until they’re crawling? So why NOT dress up on Halloween?

    (As an aside, I didn’t do belly photos 13 years ago when I was pregnant, because they seemed silly. Talk about regrets: I long to have those photos now. Because of that particular experience, and other choices in parenting over the years, I have learned to distrust my own "that’s just silly" voice quite a lot. (a) Who says it’s silly? and (b) Why am I listening to them? I believe quite strongly that everyone navigates these voices for themselves, and I can totally imagine people for whom "that’s just silly" is a useful warning voice, but in my life, I am working all the time to do what I want, even if it does seem silly. Take that for what it’s worth.)

  4. Oh! Forgot to say that we had babies in New England, and now live in the Southeast, and a bare majority of my Facebook contacts are in the Midwest (most of the baby people are younger cousins, now), and my nieces and nephews are babies in California and in the mid-Atlantic states (where all six of them wore totally adorable little pumpkin suits) so I would say that baby Halloween costumes are A Thing just about everywhere.

  5. I am in Portland OR, my kid was born in Feb and is now 8.5. He wore a Halloween tshirt for three years. Then costumes (some store bought, some homemade, some a combo). Other friends in our cohort did baby costumes as soon as they could. First few years we just hung out and/or he was in day care. New neighborhood when he was older has a parade in the business district and our school has a carnival the Friday before Halloween where you can wear costumes (no masks, weapons or gore). Last two years he and a neighbor trick or treated for less than 1/2 hour and then enjoyed passing out candy and watching Halloween shows. And I am not someone to drive to another neighborhood. Also, the Halloween Fairy comes to our house and takes candy and leaves small Lego sets. A tradition we have done the last 4 years is the Saturday before to have a few friends and family over for pumpkin carving, pizza, Halloween movies, etc.

  6. In Orange County California – I made my then 10-month daughter a bunny costume. (Really easy actually – when you consider that the base was a pink blanket sleeper.) Anyway, we took lots of pictures, went to a couple of neighbor’s houses, socialized a bit then went home. Really, the pics were the main reason for the costume.

  7. In the US SE. I am not sure what other people do and I am not huge on celebrations/holidays, including Halloween — not that I have anything against it (or them), I don’t. Now that my first grader is excited about planning his costume I am too! But I am not someone who felt motivated to do this independent of the kidlet’s own interest.

    I’m pretty sure we did not do anything (except greet trick-or-treaters and give them candy) my LO’s infant year (he’d have been ~6m). Year 2 I did get him a "beagle" costume (off Ebay?) because it was easy to put on him and we walked around a few houses in our neighborhood; at ~18m he was old enough to enjoy the interaction a bit. Since then we’ve done costumes (I think I picked his year-2 costume and that he may have done so since then, but maybe I also picked year 3.

  8. I think we dressed them mostly for pictures the first year, visited a couple friends, and called it a night. Neighbors with older/grown kids got a kick out of seeing the little ones and were more than willing to share a couple treats for the parents.

  9. Someone gave me a knitted pumpkin hat for my two week old, and I have the cutest pictures of him wearing it — it made me so happy! So simple but I’m smiling thinking about it now (even though he is now almost 13 years old and is 6 feet tall 🙂 Do something fun and simple — it’s truly about what you enjoy.

  10. My first son was 6 months old when Halloween rolled around. We dressed him as a scarecrow and took pictures of him at a pumpkin patch, though we did not take him trick or treating. My second son was only 1 month old for his first Halloween, and we just dressed him in a Halloween onesie, and he did go trick or treating with his big brother and me.

  11. Daughter was 8 months old on her first Halloween. She had a costume – there was a Halloween party at daycare and she wore it while helping me hand out candy during ToT. We may have also been invited to a Halloween party with other families and there is a costume parade in our neighborhood.

    I would only get a baby a costume if it makes you happy and your baby has someplace to wear it. No parties, no helping parents hand out candy…no costume needed.

    Pittsburgh, PA – in the city (not burbs)

  12. Pittsburgh. My kiddo was about 11 months old on her first Halloween. We dressed her up as a lobster (in a costume similar to <a href="http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p1015312605SPM7136521603P?PDPREDIRECT=false&cisrc=184425893&cisku=SPM7136521603&">this</a>.) It was pretty hilarious.

    We didn’t trick-or-treat but we did go walk around in the event our neighborhood has every year in the business district. I think we went out to dinner too.

  13. West Virginia– we dressed our baby up and he "helped" hand out candy. Even last year at age 3 he was happier handing out candy than going door to door. This year we’re in Raleigh, NC and planning to dress up our 10-month old and have her greet trick-or-treaters with me while the boys go around the neighborhood.

  14. Close-in suburb of major city. Dressing up your baby is a great chance to a) well, dress up your baby but also b) charm your neighbors. Go ring the doorbell up and down your block. Let them ooh and ahh, get some candy for yourself, ooh and ahh over the neighbor kids, then go home.

  15. If you want to dress the baby up, do it! We dressed up my 3 week old son as a chili pepper and he came trick or treating with us and his sister. You can either go trick or treating, by which I mean, showing off the dressed up baby to the neighbors or let him pass out candy. But if you don’t want to dress him up, skip it. It’s not like you have to, but there is no reason why you shouldn’t if you want to.

  16. I did costumes for my kids (except the one who was 10 days old) because they were in daycare. If you haven’t hit this milestone, then welcome to one of the first times you get to do whatever you want and it truly doesn’t matter. Some people do, some people don’t. YMMV. And I’m not trying to be difficult or obnoxious but this is an excellent time to realize that your family will do some things differently than others and some things the same and for the vast majority of the choices IT DOES NOT MATTER. Do what makes you happy.

    My other piece of unsolicited advice is to be prepared to readjust those decisions once your kids are old enough to have input. Sometimes values change and it’s not worth holding onto a "this is the way our family does things" rule if it’s ultimately going to cause more distress to the child. It’s all a balancing act.

  17. Minneapolis here. I dressed my non-trick-or-treating babies as ladybugs & bumblebees & pumpkins & the like. It was fun for answering the door to trick-or-treaters, going to a friend’s Halloween party, and visiting Grandma & Grandpa, who live only a couple of miles away.

  18. Two data points, because we lived in two different places when my kids were babies. Medium eastern city in the US: My oldest was 9 months old for his first Halloween and my mom made him an uber-cute lion costume. He was the first grandchild, and we all really enjoyed all of the firsts. It didn’t make sense to trick or treat, but a botanical garden nearby had a celebration so he took him and took lots of photos, and just enjoyed the time. The staff handed out candy to the older kids, and we did refuse it, and one very kind docent gave it to us anyway, saying the parents of babies need a treat now and then, too.:)

    Midwestern town, suburban neighborhood: My youngest was one month old for her first Haloween, and I had a bunting with a matching hat that we called a costume. My oldest was very gung-ho about trick-or-treating, so we brought our baby along.

  19. We got a pumpkin Halloween costume at a thrift store. It was kind of fun to sit outside passing out candy with baby in costume. (Where we lived, trick or treating happens before the sun goes down, for safety of the little ones.)

  20. We were in Atlanta at the time and were given the cutest bat costume. So we dressed her up and went to visit the retirement community where her grandparents were living. I wouldn’t have done it if not given a costume, but of course I’m glad we did.

  21. I’m in the Midwest, and my son’s daycare (he’s 20 months) asked me this morning what he was going to be for Halloween (because they’re having a parade) and I was like, "uh… a toddler?" I think it is great to dress up babies for Halloween if that is your thing. I probably won’t be because I am not that creative and because OMG I AM JUST TRYING TO KEEP THE CHILD ALIVE (seriously, he was trying to climb on top of the stove the other day, while three burners were going).

  22. I am in Ontario (big city). Two years ago I put my (almost) six months old son in a monkey costume on the day itself and took some pictures. We also went to a Hallowe’en party with some friends (a daytime party designed for babies). I certainly didn’t take him around the neighbourhood, and the costume was a hand-me-down. I don’t think I would have bought one.

  23. My first daughter was just 6 or 7 weeks for her first Halloween. My husband bought her a Halloween themed onesie with a little pumpkin hat before she was ever born, so we put her in that. But since she hated to be put down for more than a couple minutes at a time, we didn’t even get good pictures of it. And since I was still feeling very post-partumy, we didn’t go anywhere. So for a very young baby, I would say no. However, like Moxie, the next year, when she was 13 months old, we stuck a balloon under her shirt, made her hair all crazy, and dressed her as a hunchback. It was awesome. This year, she’s three, and will be going as a butterfly, so we’re dressing the 4 month old as a caterpillar. With the wee ones, I think it’s all about how you feel and whether you’ll get anything out of it. It was tons of fun to see people’s reactions to our little Igor when the older one was wee, and I look forward to the same with my little caterpillar, but can totally see not bothering if it doesn’t feel worth it to you.

  24. LO was 3.5 months for her first Halloween; I had found an orange footed sleeper with a pumpkin face & hood with stalk somewhere (I think it was a consignment sale) and so she wore that while we waited for trick-or-treaters to come to the door. The dog was also a pumpkin thanks to a 75% off sale the prior year.

    We held off on trick-or-treating with her until the following year and then only visited a few select neighbors to show her costume off and tried to refuse any candy offered (but our street didn’t get much traffic so our mostly retired/older neighbors pretty much wanted to get rid of their candy so were pretty forceful about our needing to take it). Last year was our first true trick or treat with her, but at 2 and since we had moved in at the beginning of the month it was really to meet our new neighbors than to candy grab. This year at 3 should be interesting!

  25. I dressed my first up because it was fun for me. We put a costume on her the weekend before Halloween and went to the pumpkin patch and got pumpkins and stuff. I dressed my other two up because it was fun for the older siblings. (And me, a little bit. Making Halloween costumes is fun for me.)

    And I have to share how I dressed my youngest one up because it was (in my humble opinion) sheer brilliance. I have a very large orange zip-up sweatshirt (left over from being pregnant, but really just a men’s XL or something). I bought a sheet of black duct tape and cut out jack-o-lantern eyes/nose mouth and put them onto the front of the hoodie so when it was zipped, it looks jack-o-lantern-y. I crocheted a green hat with a long peak for the baby. Then I put the baby in the Bjorn and zipped the hoodie up around it and he was (well, we were) a jack-o-lantern. AND he was not cold while we took his big brother and sister trick-or-treating.

  26. Do what makes you happy.

    The Peanut was 7 1/2 months old last Halloween…we had plans to hang out at a friend’s house, plus I thought it was hilarious, so I made a sushi costume for her. This year she’ll be 19 1/2 months…and I’m going to make a sushi costume again. I think it’ll be funny to have a series of pictures of her dressed as sushi, and until she can protest… 🙂 No trick or treating for us yet, but we’ll be heading to the pumpkin farm with some friends and others will be dressing their LOs up. Oh, we’re in the Midwest, but location doesn’t seem to matter on this one.

  27. I dunno, Magda. I’m sorry to rain on the Halloween parade, but the "my divorce is so great" posts are kind of getting to me. I know you’re just trying to help people in crisis, and you have to respect others’ privacy so you’re very limited in what you can write about, but as a child of divorce I often feel that the popular press glosses over and deliberately negates the negative aspects of divorce, and I’m starting to feel that way about your writing too. I’m sure that isn’t your intent, so even if you delete this comment, I hope you take a moment to think about this aspect of your readership. You’re great at making struggling parents feel heard, so I hope you can write as sensitively for adult children of divorce.

    My parents have a "good" divorce (though nowhere near as good as my mom pretends it is), yet when my dad had a heart attack it really showed the long-term impact of divorce on our family. Normal existence as a divorced family is so stressful that there is little capacity to handle additional problems– the logistics alone take up a ton of energy. My mom wasn’t willing to jump in as "crisis wife," and her role as ex-wife was very unclear, so as the older daughter I was forced into a very uncomfortable primary caregiver role. I don’t really expect my mom to be "crisis wife" for the rest of his life, but I do feel that the divorce forced me into an adult role prematurely, and that my parents each abandoned us kids in the long-term project of caring for the other parent. I’m the #1 person on call for both of them now, and it only gets harder as they get older and sicker (and crazier). Divorce is long.

    I hope your children feel as positive about your divorce as you do, and that they can talk openly with you about it even if they say things that are hard for you to hear or that you don’t agree with. My parents are so invested in their internal and external facade of "good divorce" that I have to keep my real feelings a secret, and it has made my relationship with my mother into a facade too. I’m in my 30s now so I can deal on my own, but it still really sucks. Their marriage was godawful, and when I was younger and more clueless I would have said I was happy they were divorced, but as we all get older I’m not so sure. I don’t know anyone who thinks their parents’ divorce "saved" their family. Improved it, maybe, or made it less unbearable, but even the best divorce is nothing like the beautiful dream of a happy, intact family. It’s just a completely different kind of thing.

  28. Z, I don’t delete comments unless they’re abusive or spam, so off course I wouldn’t delete yours.

    I keep writing the "my divorce is so great" posts because I feel so lucky to be divorced. It certainly doesn’t mean my life is perfect, but compared to being inside a marriage that made me want to die (not an exaggeration), being divorced is a miracle.

    Do I think my kids wish they were in a happy intact family? Yes. But there is no way they could have been in one, since their dad and I are their parents. We’re trying to give them the best of ourselves, which is only possible now that we’re divorced.

    I don’t write about asking my kids how they feel about our being divorced because my kids look at me like I’m an idiot every time I bring it up. Once when I asked my older one if he was sad about the divorce he asked me why he would be sad about it. I don’t want to attribute feelings to them that they don’t have, so I’ve stopped trying to force them to tell me they’re feeling bad about something they don’t seem upset about. Of course time changes perspective on things, so I’m sure we’ll have different conversations when they’re older. For now we’re right where we are.

    I’m so sorry you felt so ignored in your parents’ divorce and the following years. It must have been lonely and bleak for you not to have been able to be honest with either of them about it.

    1. Thanks. I appreciate it. And I don’t expect to hear about your kids’ feelings or anything like that, or why your marriage was so unbearable when you’re now singing your ex-husband’s praises. It’s not a coherent story, but nobody could expect it to be. I just wanted to point out that your entirely understandable choices of things not to discuss result in a skewed picture and can contribute to the feeling of not being heard, which is so common among adult children of divorce. And unfortunately this is exacerbated by places like Huffington Post, which so rarely publishes anything acknowledging any negative consequences of divorce. It seems like they’re almost always on the parents’ side, just telling them what they want to hear, when really there shouldn’t be any "sides" at all, and we could all talk honestly about our experiences.

      I appreciate your closing sentiments, but your use of the past tense makes me think you didn’t quite get what I mean, so I still feel a bit "not heard" by you. It’s lonely and bleak now, in my mid-30s. I can’t be honest with them now. The logistics are hellish now, and getting worse. I have a fake relationship with my mother now. I’m still my dad’s #1 Heart Disease Caregiver now, doing the work that my mom skipped out on, because there isn’t anyone else to do it. This is what they need to maintain their belief that they have a "good" divorce, so they will never be willing to see the impact. I know my life is pretty great in the grand scheme of things, but please, please, understand that it affects me profoundly now and will in the future. Divorce doesn’t just fade away, it changes everyone’s lives forever.

  29. Z, I’m sorry you feel unheard by me. I guess I’m wondering what you want. For me or your parents to say that they shouldn’t have gotten divorced? Because if they need so strongly to preserve a facade of a "good divorce," then wouldn’t staying married have just traded for a different facade of a "good marriage" that was also hurting you now? Parents pick the poison they think will do the least damage. Some are not equipped to handle the results of what they pick. We don’t know if they’d have been able to handle a different choice any better.

    I am sorry that right now you don’t have the relationship you want with each of your parents. That your father is putting the burden of his care on you. That your mother doesn’t see you. It feels like you think things would be radically different if they hadn’t divorced, and that they would have taken responsibility for each other and would have been more present for you. Am I reading that feeling accurately?

    (And "singing praises," no. Limited set of successful interactions, yes.)

    1. I just wanted to tell you that it isn’t in the past, it’s in the present.

      I don’t need my parents (or anyone) to say that they shoudn’t have gotten divorced– I’m not sure what the answer is, and I don’t think it’s possible to know. I’m not trying to deny that a long unhappy marriage is traumatizing too. I just wish they could acknowledge the full impact on me, and my children and spouse, to this day. I wish I could say that it sucks to drag toddlers back and forth between their houses when I visit. I wish I could say that as much as their marriage sucked, their divorce isn’t very good either. I wish my mom would not verbally seek my validation of her divorce, and vigorously pat herself on the back for every semi-cordial interaction. I just wish I could tell her what it’s like for me caring for my dad on my own, even though it’s hard for her to hear. That’s really all I want, just to not have to keep my real experiences a secret, and for people to stop treating divorce like it’s an event in the past that doesn’t impose burdens in the present. It’s more like moving to a different place– maybe it’s better, maybe it’s worse, but it makes life different every day. I try to be understanding– it must really suck to be in an unhappy marriage, and to sacrifice your financial security and time with your kids and grandkids in pursuit of your own happiness, but end up unhappy and alone and broke. But I wish they could be understanding of me too.

      I think life would be different if my parents were of strong enough character to confront the consequences of their choices. Life would be different if they could accept that I view their divorce differently than they do and I am entitled to my opinions just like anyone else. Then at least we could have a real conversation, with a difference of opinion instead of a giant elephant in the room. They don’t have to agree, but I wish I could say what I think without causing a huge blowup.

      And I wish it wasn’t such a taboo to talk about the impact of my parents’ divorce with others. I don’t know why it has to be that way. At least other people with divorced parents understand.

      Anyway… thanks. East coast bedtime.

  30. Well, I’m in San Francisco so the answer to "should we dress up?" is almost always yes. As an adult I hate this, but it’s super fun for my kid. The answer to Halloween is also "hell yes, how crazy can we go?". So we did dress Mouse up that first Halloween when she was 6 months old – she went…as a mouse! Somebody had a mouse ear hat we borrowed and I sewed a little pink ribbon tail on her gray leggings and put her in a gray top. We went over to the famous halloween street party near us (not the Castro, that’s for grown-ups) and walked around. She got totally over-stimulated and it was a hoot. Best thing we saw was a baby in a bjorn dressed as a civil war-era cavalryman with a horse under him. Toddler year, we went trick-or-treating at the same place with friends – Mouse was a butterfly. (Easy-super-peasy btw – put the kid in matching shirt & pants, get a cheap pair of wings from the internet, put on sunglasses and do their hair in antenna ponytails.) She discovered chocolate, and also running that night; Mr. C was late at work and I had to manage that mess in the giant crowd. Also a hoot in retrospect – wouldn’t trade the memory for anything. 2 1/2 was the first age she actually picked her costume and she has ever since picked something fairly insane, often on the day after the previous halloween. (9 1/2 version: let’s make Nightmare Moon!) Halloween is almost bigger than xmas for SF kids. It’s become our joint project to make whatever it is for her, which makes me feel less lame about the fact that I never want to dress up myself.

  31. I dressed both boys up as infants…my second was only maybe 3 weeks old for his first halloween, so I put some cute clothes on him, added his crocheted pumpkin hat and put him in the moby while we walked my older son around the neighborhood. we also get the boys dressed up and take them to see the grandparents in different parts of the city, and my mom always gave something appropriate for little ones…She actually buys boxes of teething biscuits for any real little ones that come to the door with a brother or sister. I say do it, we always found some really fun activities to do with the boys in their costumes.

  32. We have a local Halloween parade. When oldest was 20 months we had a hand-me-down elephant costume for her. I wrote "peanuts" on a paper bag and put our 2 month old in it, tying it under his arms with twine. Super fun.

  33. not a parent but in dc (but a sort of suburb like part–in the city limits, but a neighborhood with houses and blocks and trees) folks tend to dress their babies up if only to hand out candy–but also to go out in strollers and show off how freakin adorable costumed babies are.
    also, last year’s best toddler costume sighting was a little boy–maybe 2–in a limo-decorated wagon wearing a suit and tie with an ipod playing Hail to the Chief on a loop. his parents were dressed as secret service.

  34. Definitely dress up for pictures, even if it’s 10 minutes 🙂 I adore the baby Halloween photos we have, and my babies were born in late Sept/early Oct so that first year "costume" was either a sleeper or a swaddle blanket with matching hat. Last year, when my older was 3 and the new baby was 3 weeks, they had matching ladybug costumes. We also used those costumes in the newborn/new family photoshoot, so it was double duty 🙂

    Our workplaces usually have Halloween parties, or trick or treat through the offices so we take our little ones there for a bit as well. Our neighborhood is on a steep dark hill, so last year we went to about 6 houses and called it good.

  35. DS has dressed up every year for Hallowe’en, except when he was 1.25 and was incredibly sick. His first Hallowe’en he was 4 mos. I made a stuffed turtle shell for him out of felt & fabric & tied it on his back. We had friends over for dinner that year, so he made an appearance as Mr. Turtle, and then took it off. We got some great pictures of him on his belly, looking up. Also one where he’s reaching for a bowl of candy corn. Some of my favourite photos. At 1y4m he was sick, so nothing, not even daycare. Naturally this was the year & went all out & made him an awesome sprite costume. I use it as decoration in my workroom now. 2 1/4 I sewed the turtle shell on the back of a hoody, and added some funny turtle eyes on top of the hood. Very practical. But we didn’t take him out that year as he’s a pretty sensitive little guy. I think he didn’t want to go out. He was an owl at 3y4m, and it was the first year we went trick-or-treating in our neighbourhood. Which. OMG is amazing. We had no idea before then. Lots of decorated houses, people milling about handing out candy, and best of all, wine for the parents. Lots of adults dressed up (but not us…too tired to make more than one costume). So, we’ve been doing this ever since.

    1. Oh, and I know no one puts the apostrophe in Halloween anymore, but I’m stubbornly sticking to the old spelling. Even if it’s now technically wrong.
