Best of all, you can even make it a fun family event where your kids can help plan and make their costumes together! Here are a few DIY costume ideas for your family to try:

No matter what costume you choose for your children, they’re guaranteed to look cute! The best Halloween outfit your infant or toddler could wear are ones that are comfortable for them. Since your baby’s skin is a lot more sensitive and delicate compared to an adult’s, be sure to check if the costume is made of itchy material or has scratchy tags and loose threads. 

If you’re worried about your baby’s sensitive skin being irritated or if the costume is too thin for the cooler Fall weather, consider having them wear an extra layer under to keep the costume from touching their skin. WithOrganic’s organic cotton baby bodysuits and toddler clothing are perfect for this! Our certified organic kids clothes are not only soft and breathable, but perfect for delicate skin.
