Updated on August 21, 2011

Nothing is cuter than a little baby dressed up as a kitten for Halloween, but getting the costume to stay on without a struggle is quite the challenge.

The chances of your child staying in his or her costume without a fuss are higher depending on how comfortable the get-up is. Here are some costume ideas that are easy to buy and easy to wear. A quick Amazon search for any of the numbered items listed in bold will give you more detailed information about sizes and options.

      the snail costume: i am not a picky person however when i buy something i don't want it to fall apart before it is even worn. when this costume arrived i was disappointed on how thin the body suit fabric is, in the pic it looks warm and comfy in all actuality it is very close to being see threw and scratchy, most of the costume is glued together so the snail shell started falling off just by it hanging on a coat hanger, I wish i would have bought a blue jump suit and made it myself, and the sizing is off my son is 9 months and will hardly fit in it, he is avg. sz. oh yeah the shell part will all come unrolled if you slightly push on the middle its not stitched or even glued (which i can see that glue is there first choice of assembly) it is going to be fun to doctor this costume up, i gave it 2 stares only due to its originality.
