Family Halloween Costumes With A Baby- 21 Ideas

Baby’s first Halloween is a fun little milestone, right? And even more fun is doing a family Halloween costume with a baby.

Of course your baby isn’t going to remember it, but WHO CARES? If it makes you happy, that’s all that matters.

And the cute photos that you’re going to get will be priceless, and something that your baby will definitely love looking back at in the future.

This compilation of AMAZING costume ideas comes from some incredible mamas over on Instagram (you might want to click through to their equally amazing Instagram accounts and follow them!!).

I spent hours looking for the best family Halloween costume ideas with a baby, and I know that you’re gonna love it. These ideas are doable, out-of-the-ordinary and SUPER SUPER FUN.

Halloween costume ideas for families with a baby

Family Halloween Costumes With A Baby

1. The Flintstones

Aren’t these costumes just perfection? I love all the little details but I also love how simple this would be to pull off in DIY form.

2. Outer Space

If you are big into baby wearing, then check out this next one or inspiration! An astronaut, an alien and a baby wearing spaceship. I also love that the dad’s costume is something that any dad would be up for.

3. The Berenstain Bears

Ready for a blast from the past? This one is oh so very simple and just darling.

4. Winnie The Pooh

Gah! I almost have no words for this one. If you have a baby AND your pregnant, I don’t think there is any other option than these Winnie the Pooh themed costumes. FAV-OR-ITE.

5. Ghostbusters

When you can’t decide on your family costumes for this Halloween, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!

6. The Lady And The Tramp

I feel like this level of amazing, pulled-it-off-flawlessly perfection is NOT EVEN POSSIBLE. I am IN LOVE WITH THESE COSTUMES. Seriously so stinkin’ cute and totally DIY’ed by this incredible mama.

7. Ice Ice Baby

Perfect for the mom and dad who live to make other’s laugh. And how inexpensive and simple, too?!

We've got this year's punny Halloween costumes in the bag. Yuk yuk. — Junie may be crying now over our terrible puns, but I have a hunch that one day she will learn to appreciate visual humor just as I have. After all, her Grandpa is the original punster! He said our costume this year could double as both "Ice Ice Baby" AND "Baby, It's Cold Outside." See what I mean? It runs in her genes. — Have a safe and happy Halloween, friends. Hope it's really "Nice Nice Baby." — P.S. You can find our costume tutorial over at along with our punny costumes from the last 4 years. This is officially an annual tradition now, folks. Is it weird I'm already plotting for next year? — #TheLankersLovePuns 👪

8. Under The Sea

I love that this mama incorporated her fur babies as well! I love everything about it: the mermaid, shark, scuba diver and the fish!

9. Pumpkin Patch

Dress the baby as a pumpkin and grab some old flannels from the closet and you’re good to go!

10. The Wizard Of Oz

Okay, yes. The Wizard of Oz has likely been done a million times for Halloween. But let’s be honest. No one has ever done it before like this mama! That scarecrow!

11. Beauty And The Beast

This mama not only made these amazing costumes for under $30, but she also blogged about it. Check out her blog post for all the details!

12. The Yellow Brick Road

Yep, another one, but this one is very different from the previous Wizard of Oz example, so I thought I’d throw this one in for you too!

13. The Three Little Pigs

ADORABLE! As is this family!! And this one is perfect for a family Halloween costume with twin babies.

14. Ketchup And Mustard

Who knew that ketchup and mustard could be this adorable? And don’t just scroll past and miss the real life hot dog at the bottom of the photo! The cutest!

15. A Farmer And Her Chicken

The mom and baby costume is the sweetest.

16. Cotton Candy

These mega-unique cotton candy costumes seriously look like something straight out of a movie. Or a dream! They look almost good enough to eat, don’t they?

17. Sing

My two children are OBSESSED with the movie Sing, and though they are typically way too independent to want to do a themed costume, this one just might be a winner!

18. Football

How stinkin’ cute, right? And so simple, you might have everything you need for this costume packed away in your attic.

19. Cops And A Convict

Babies are cute, but babies dressed up like cops on Halloween have got to be the cutest!

20. Peter Pan

"Off to Neverland" 🌠
