Sadly we are nearing the end of summer but that means we’re that much closer to the Halloween countdown. Costumes can put a pretty big dent in your wallet and your child will likely wear it only once leaving you with stuffed garbage bags in the corner of your closet. Here are the best costumes when you’re on a budget, making it easier to checkout and cope with the potential of baby only wearing it this year.

Pottery Barn Kids

Baby Little Stinker Skunk Costume ($25)

You may never be able to get that diaper pail smell out of the nursery, but your child will look adorable in this little skunk costume. It comes with a black and white jumpsuit, matching hood with attached ears, a detachable tail, and booties.

Party City

Baby Pumpkin ($60)

There’s nothing more classic than a baby pumpkin. This comes complete with a headpiece and bodysuit, making it easy to layer over clothing and even easier for diaper changes.

Pottery Barn

Little Avocado ($33)

Guac is not extra this Halloween! Dress your cutie up in this green avocado bodysuit that comes with a classic long sleeve white tee and striped leggings.

Old Navy is not only amazing for baby basics, but it sometimes has just what you need for the holidays. This set comes with 1 duck critter hoodie and pants and a striped bodysuit for easy layering.

Old Navy

Classic Batman ($20)

H&M is slowly becoming one of my favorites for baby clothes and now they’ve added costumes to the mix. This affordable batman costume makes it easy to pair with any basic onesie and pants you may have in baby’s dresser.

An unexpected place to get your baby’s costume? Etsy. It’s also a great way to support small businesses and local sellers.

Slowly but surely, your little one will absolutely adore the comfort of this sloth costume. Whether your little sloth is hanging from trees or taking a nap, you’ll know that they won’t go far.
