Our Babywearing Costumes-Past and Present

First Published: Oct 24, 2015 3:27 PM

We have had a few costumes that we have incorporated babywearing in to in the past. I will share those with you first in order of most recent (taken yesterday at a Trunk-or-Treat party) to oldest. I also will share some cute Halloween pictures from before we did babywearing costumes special because who doesn’t love seeing cute kids in Halloween costumes?!

I would love to do a Halloween costumes idea post so if you’re interested please email me at monkeybunns@gmail.com with your pictures and let me know that you’re ok with me sharing them in a post on my blog (please state that or I won’t be able to share them!). Please send me your pictures by November 2nd! (Must be YOUR picture and you must have the rights to it).

2015: Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and Princess Peach

Princess Peach was saved just in time after getting in trouble again. Yoshi came to the rescue to carry her to safety. The Mario brothers succeeded again! (I knit the boys’ hats, sewed the felt crown, and got the Yoshi hat off of Etsy)

2014: My Minions

I don’t have a picture of my little gal on my back but I did carry her on my back for our town’s downtown trick-or-treating as well as at night. I had minions climbing all over me and doing my bidding! (I knit their hats).


2013: Ninja Turtles (including the baby in the belly!)

The ultimate babywearing is the wearing a mama does before a baby is born. This was our second year of a family theme. The picture was taken at our downtown trick-or-treating by a friend.


2012: Thomas and Friends.

This was our first family theme and first time really incorporating babywearing in to our costumes. My oldest really wanted to be Thomas, my husband was Sir Topham Hat, I was Rosie (an engine on some of the episodes), and my little man was my conductor. I don’t have another picture of him because he was too wiggly at the time but he did have the stripped overalls and everything and looked adorable. The Peekaru kept me toasty while we went trick-or-treating. This was taken at a trunk or treat a week before, my husband was gone for Halloween this year.

Monkey really wanted to be a spider this year, K-man was super in to froggies. I made both of their costumes (including the knit hat on K-man). Sorry for the grainy pictures. My iPod didn’t take all that great of pictures and I forgot to take ones with my better camera but they were still super cute so I wanted to share the pictures anyways.

And the years that I babywore but not for trick-or-treating because we just drove to each grandmas’ houses.

2010: Monkey was a monkey! (And K-man was in my belly)


2009: Stewie from Family Guy (Hubby’s pick-I did wear him most of the day though)


2008: Monkey’s first Halloween, sweet little Pumpkin
