The Bottom Line: Making your baby some yummy candy to get some yummy candy.
There are tons of cute costumes out there now for infants. You can make your little one anything from a dragon to a pea pod. Since my first little guy was an October baby, we needed something that was simple and easy to use on a one month old for Halloween. We happened to go with what was handed down to us - an M&M Bunting Infant Costume.
The M&M Bunting is a one size fits all costume for babies birth through about 6 months (after that baby is going to want to move around more). Essentially a bunting is a large nylon bag with arms and a neck hole. There is a string tie so the neck adjusts to a variety of noggin sizes. Getting the costume on my little man was pretty easy and he barely fussed about it.
The material is very light fitting well with whatever weather you may have. Warm weather, put baby in a onesie… Cold weather put on the layers underneath. There is no car seat strap holes so you would have to put this on baby when you get to your destination. The outside of the bunting is decorated to look just like the red M&M you see in the commercials - complete with his discerning smirk. Being a red color the M&M Bunting costume is suitable for both boys and girls.
My oldest was the only one to wear this one as the others were and will be too big to fit it by the time Halloween came. Since he had received a variety of costumes being a fall baby, we used this one for his first photo session, which made for some very cute pictures. I would recommend the M&M Bunting more for babies who are just a bit bigger say around 3 months. They bag will be filled out a little better and really look like an M&M.
