The Sun

Since most infants are considered the parents' ray of sunshine, why not have your infant dress up as the sun for Halloween. This is a darling costume that is sure to light up any room.

When choosing a costume for your infant, make sure that the costume follows safety standards and doesn't have any choke hazards. Another added safety measure is to be sure that the costume is flame retardant. Also keep in mind that babies are sensitive to their environment so face painting is not necessarily a good idea because it can cause red splotches and rashes.

Comfort ability is also important when it comes to making the night enjoyable. Although a costume may look adorable, it may not be so comfortable for the infant, thus causing him or her to be fussy and irritable. So consider the needs of your child as well as the cute factor when choosing a costume that is best for your infant.
