Every year we see the cutest pictures of baby's dressed as pumpkins for Halloween, so if you're looking for the best Halloween costumes for your little one, why not opt for the cutest baby pumpkin costumes?

There are always those obligatory 'baby sitting in a pumpkin' pictures that start appearing throughout October, but sitting a baby in a pumpkin isn't always practical. With a pumpkin costume, your little one can look super cute throughout the Halloween season. They're perfect for parties, Halloween night and those all-important pumpkin-picking pictures and look perfect with matching pumpkin face paint.

Best overall baby pumpkin costumes

Perfect for pumpkin picking or Halloween parties, the Halloween Pumpkin Costume is simply too cute not to dress your little one in. Featuring a beret-style pumpkin hat, cute elasticated orange boots and a pull-over pumpkin costume, the outfit is a fleeced material to keep them extra warm in the cool autumn weather.

One review said: "I bought this costume for my 9 month old girl’s first Halloween. She loved it so much & wore it for a couple of days to get the most out of it! She’s quite petite for her age so it might even do as a T-shirt next Halloween… or as an outfit for her teddy. The hat sits really nicely as a little beret, the boots are elastic so stay on well. The little sprout on the top of the hat is a really nice touch. Overall very happy with the product!"

When is Halloween?

Are you ready for spooky season? Halloween is typically celebrated on October 31st every year, which this year falls on a Tuesday. So whether you're planning on Trick or Treating on Halloween night or having a party over the weekend, it's time to start prepping!

Does my child need a baby pumpkin costume?

Pumpkin costumes are incredibly cute on small children, but if your child is older enough it's worth asking what they want to dress as.

If your child already has costumes at home of their favourite Disney Princess or superhero, you might want them to just wear that for Halloween this year. If you choose a new outfit that has a broad size range too, you can always re-use it next year.
