Comfortable with Safe Toddler Halloween Costumes

Jul 4, 2008
October is here before you know it always comes faster than we expect and you know what that means: Halloween will be here in no time. So now is the time that you need to start looking and purchase a toddler Halloween costume so that you do not have to worry about rushing, waiting in line and settling for a costume you didn't really want. By shopping ahead of time you don't have to worry about having a second rate costume because it ensures that you and your little one can enjoy the holiday comfortably. You don't get many chances to pick out your baby's costume, because before too long they know what Halloween is and they have their own costume ideas. Usually they will want to have a favorite character from a book, cartoon, TV show or movie. It doesn't even matter that they don't understand what Halloween is; they will surely have a good time dressing up and trick-or-treating.

Some of the most fun that an adult can have is helping a child to pick out their Halloween costume. You can help to make sure your child picks a toddler costume that will be safe as well as suitable for his or her age. You should also make sure that your toddler will be comfortable. When it comes down to it, simple costumes are usually the best to buy. Try to avoid costumes that are bulky and ones that have a lot of snaps or zippers.

You are going to want to keep both safety and comfort in mind when it comes to choosing toddler costumes. Halloween can be a big event for your toddler, and you are not going to want your son or daughter to be cranky because their costume is too warm, too bulky, or just uncomfortable in general.

Use your creativity to make some of your child's costume. Although many toddler Halloween costumes come in a large variety of shapes and sizes, some of the accessories that come along with the costumes aren't very adjustable. So many parents find that when dressing a toddler in his or her Halloween costume that it is very helpful to make some of the pieces at home. There are numerous materials, cloth and otherwise that can be used when making your toddler's costume. This will also help to ensure that your child will be happy in his or her costume.

With so many sizes and styles out there, it is guaranteed that you will find the perfect costume for even the pickiest of toddlers. If you have a son, then you can go with costumes such as a goblin, pirate, pumpkin, Dracula, fireman or a ghost. If you have a daughter she will more than likely want to be a princess, angel, cheerleader or girl pirate.

It is important to start looking for the toddler costume early. This will allow you to have more of a selection to choose from and it will also help for you to get your toddler ready for the big event. You can let your little one wear the costume before Halloween so that he or she can get used to wearing. It will make things much easier when you are trying to dress your child on Halloween night in their toddler costume.

A holiday that is fun, full of surprises and safe is what you want for your toddler. You may want to consider your toddler when trick-or-treating and avoid houses that are scary as this could actually cause them to not enjoy themselves and can even put them off Halloween if they have a bad experience. Remember to carry a flashlight and have a fun sack that your toddler can carry to keep his or her treats and other items in. Make sure you know when your toddler is getting tired and irritable so that you know when to call it a night. Your toddler will probably last a lot longer in a toddler costume that allows a lot of movement and a lot of breathing room. Edited by Hetsil Protage
