Shopping for Halloween
When you shop for a Halloween costume for your baby, keep in mind that what you think looks cute, he might hate to wear. Look for outfits that are going to fit with his personality. In other words, if your baby pulls off hats, make sure the focal point of the costume isn't a hat. Remember too that babies are messy, and your costume could get ruined with drool, spit up, or by diaper accidents. Consequently, look for something reasonable that won't break the bank that your child can stand to wear.
