25 Babywearing Costume Ideas (That won't make you look like a Racist Asshole)

It's that time of year again, when babywearers everywhere take to google and pinterest and innocently type "babywearing halloween costume" into all-knowing boxes, in hopes of incorporating their baby and their baby carrier into an adorable and/or hilarious halloween costume.

Many of them, likely unknowingly, will settle on seemingly easy or authentic ideas that appropriate other races or cultures. (Don't know what cultural appropriation is? Start Here.) Ideas like "Indian and Papoose" (see also "Sacajawea" or "Pocahontas"), "Traditional African", "Eskimos", "Geisha and Dragon", or "Babushka Dolls" (alright, that one might be a stretch) will catch the eye of well-meaning white mothers all across America. (Not sure if your costume idea is racist? Start Here.)

So, without further ado, here are 25 Babywearing Costume ideas that WON'T make you look like a racist asshole this Halloween.

  • Frog and Fly
  • Alice and the Cheshire Cat

And there you have at it. At least 35 baby wearing costumes that won't appropriate or disrespect another race or culture. The unoffensive, non-problematic possibilities are virtually endless!

Have an idea that's not on my list? Let's hear it! Have a photo of your own creative babywearing costume? Share it!

Remember friends, this Halloween: have fun, be safe, and don't be a dick.
