Halloween isn't everyone's cup of tea but it seems it's becoming more popular on this side of the pond, with everyone from schools to community groups putting on family-friendly events to mark this most ghoulish season.
And, of course, no Halloween bash is complete without a fancy dress costume. But if you can't bring yourself to dress your little poppet like a zombie or some other gruesome character, fear not.
We've unearthed six of the cutest Halloween costumes for babies. Here they are, in no particular order...
Dress Up Mummy All In One, £10-11
This cute sleepsuit from Mothercare is just the ticket if you want to include your bambino in some Halloween family shenanigans but don't fancy forking out for a costume that he'll never wear again.
Star Wars Baby Princess Leia, £19.99
Halloween costumes don't have to be scary. Stormtrooper-costumes.com have the cute costume thing nailed and we just love this epic baby outfit inspired by everyone's favourite princess. Guaranteed to win a Halloween costume contest, this one!
Velour All-in-One Suit, £17.99
Good ole' H&M – there's no way my youngest will venture near any sort of scary costume but she has no intention on missing out on trick or treating either. This cute onesie is the perfect compromise – it still counts as a costume but it's cute, practical for wandering the streets in search of sweets on a chilly night AND it won't get consigned to the back of the wardrobe by November 1st!
Handsome Lil'Wabbit, £15.99
I love this silly costume from partydelights.co.uk – it's just the thing for making a spectacle of your little pickle without going near the gory stuff. And get this – it comes with a chenille jumpsuit plus hat with floppy ears. AND A CARROT RATTLE.
Baby Little Roar Costume, £12.99
I'm not alone in not being able to get enough of babies dress in sillt suits and this little lion costume from wonderlandparty.co.uk is just adorable. Can you imagine your little lion cub all cosied up in this?
Baby's Spider Dress Up Costume, £26
This one's not cheap but I couldn't resist including this cute spider costume from notonthehighstreet.com – it ticks all my boxes for a baby Halloween costume – it's even got snap fasteners for fright-free nappy changes!
And finally, if money's no object then you can't go wrong with this Frog Dress Up Costume, also from notonthehighstreet.com. At £45 you'll probably need more money than sense but think of it as an investment – the snaps alone will be 21st birthday party embarrassment gold!!
