A new trend has popped up across the country and is proving popular across social media: baby hallows.
A trend in which children are dressing up as animals in their birthday costumes.
The concept of baby hallowing has been around for ages and has its origins in the US, where it’s a way of celebrating the birth of a baby or other special event.
But the trend is spreading across Australia, with many parents deciding to do so for the first time after finding the costumes themselves.
Many baby costumes look just like regular baby costumes and include items such as baby bell, baby gloves, and baby food, but they also include baby accessories like baby bowls, baby blankets, baby beds, baby toys, and even a baby crib.
Some parents even go as far as using baby food and baby clothes to decorate the room, with the intention of making their child’s birthday a more memorable experience.
“I have a little one that is so cute and adorable, and she is going to be so excited about getting to know me and all the other kids, and her birthday is going be so much better because I have all these cute toys and stuff to play with,” one mother told ABC Radio Brisbane.
“It’s the best thing I have ever done for my baby, it makes her happy.”
The baby hallowed trend is gaining popularity among many parents.
“There’s a lot of people who are doing it because they’re looking for a way to make their children feel special,” a mother from Queensland said.
“They’re trying to show that their child is special and they want to make sure that they’re happy.”
Baby hallowens have been around in Australia for a while.
In fact, the baby hallooing trend was originally sparked by a Halloween costume contest held by a group of women at a local community centre in Melbourne.
The event was originally held to help raise awareness for the Australian Government’s new Baby Wellness Program, which aims to help families cope with the stress of child care.
The program encourages parents to wear baby gowns, costumes, and accessories to celebrate the birthdays of their children.
“Baby hallowing is a great way to celebrate a birthday, a special occasion, and it’s also great for the children who are watching and they’re getting their hands on a lot more toys and other things,” one participant said.
The participants from the Halloween costume competition, The Little Baby Hallows Project, also decided to use baby food for baby clothes.
The group organised a Halloween-themed birthday party and held a photo booth to show their children how to make a baby hallown.
“We started with a photo of a little baby and it ended up being a baby food box and a baby bottle,” one of the participants told ABC Brisbane.
The Little Baby Halloween Costume Contest was also attended by children from the Little Baby hallowen family and the participants were inspired by the photos they had seen online of baby food boxes and bottles being handed out to baby-free parents.
Many of the parents said they found the costume idea to be incredibly fun and they also found the photo booth helpful.
“You’re not going to put your child through anything that they would find offensive, and they would actually see that and go, ‘OK, that’s cool,'” one participant from the event said.
One participant who participated in the costume contest said the idea of giving baby food a second chance was “totally heartwarming”.
“You know, a little bit of fun.
We’re just giving people something to look forward to,” she said.
Baby hallows can also be a fun way for parents to celebrate their children’s birthday.
“The idea is to give your child a little present, and for the baby to be happy, and you can be a little part of that, and to make them feel special and to be proud of who they are and to celebrate that,” one parent from Victoria said.
