Baby's first Halloween is a big deal. OK, baby's first anything is a big deal, to parents, at least. But a baby celebrating her first holiday is something special. Halloween isn't a day that means a lot for everyone, but lots of people really do love the day, and spooky season in general. It's truly a vibe. Yes, there's the scary stuff, the tricks, like monsters and ghosts. But there's also the treats: candy bars, the controversial candy corn, and the movies. In the same way that these Halloween enthusiasts may hit up Target or anther store to appropriately decorate for Halloween, some parents want to make sure their kids are in the spirit, too. Or maybe even along with them. It can be especially fun if there's a new baby celebrating his first pumpkin season.

Why, one may ask? Well, to start, Halloween is the time of year where the usual rules for both decor and fashion do not apply. Yes, people wear costumes on the day (there's even mommy and me costume ideas!) and that's amazing, as is the influx of candy and actually perfect weather. But pretty much from September until the end of October, pumpkins, ghosts, black, orange, and other Halloween-themed clothes and accessories come out to play. So in addition to costumes, wearing earrings that are shaped liked witch hats and black cat patterned yoga pants are all fair game. Of course, babies are lucky, they get to wear funny or punny (hehe) onesies or clothing year-round. But Halloween is when things really get interesting.

For people who can't wait to hit the pumpkin patch and cover their stairs railings with fake cobwebs, dressing a baby in a 'Ween costume is the most fun. Plus, the kitschy outfits are just so darn cute. It's a kind of cute that can't happen on Christmas or Chanukah. To help out in this, because we support holiday cheer, we found some of the cutest, funniest and spookiest onesies and baby outfits out there. From puns, lots of puns, to cute ghosts and classic Halloween movies references, these outfits are sure to get baby (and parents) in the spirit.
