Halloween might be a little different this year, but don’t let that stop you from crafting up adorable baby carrier costumes! I love the idea of including my baby, but that also makes the whole costume thing a tad trickier. As a new parent, making sure your infant is safe, close to you and has a cute costume seems like a daunting task. Not to worry, here is a list of 15 baby carrier costume ideas.
