If you have a little one, you may have already started looking at Halloween costume ideas.  Dressing up yourself might not be on your radar just yet, but I'm here to inspire you to join in on the Halloween fun!  Halloween is my favorite holiday and I want to help you come up with the perfect costume!  Breastfeeding moms need to consider a costume that is functional for nursing/pumping as well, so this post is intended with that convenience in mind, but every mom should be able to find this list useful.
Let's narrow down the options... start with what your personal style and what your budget allows.  Do you have a baby carrier?  That'll be super handy!  Do you like unique, creative ideas?  You can pull a DIY!  Need something quick?  BuyCostumes is a place you can check out!  Just remember to have fun and make some memories with your little one, it sure goes by fast.
Here's the Top Ten Halloween Costumes for Breastfeeding Moms!
Breastfeeding Costumes
10- Mummy
A mummy costume is versatile, you can use what you've got! Super simple, you can use fabric scraps (check out THIS PIN of Upcycled Mummy Costumes on Pinterest) like ripped bed sheets/curtains or just grab some white crepe paper, rolled gauze wrap and some white clothes- Breastfeeding moms can use one of their nursing shirts!  This costume even looks super cute when you're pregnant!

9- Goddess
Mothers are phenomenal, we harbor a child within our womb and create the perfect food substance to sustain the child for a year or longer! So go ahead and show off your inner breastfeeding goddess!  A no-sew greek goddess costume can be real quick to assemble and it's so pretty! Check out the tutorial of this costume on Dallas Museum of Art Uncrafted and all the gorgeous accessories that go with it.

8- Cow
The first thing people think when they see a cow is milk, probably... pretty straightforward costume idea, I guess that's why I like it.  Plus, if you like Chick-fil-a you'll have a costume for free food ready for their cow appreciation day.  All you need for this is a white shirt, black paint and a potato or two.  Homegrown Strawberries shows how it's done!

And if you're using a stroller, might as well bring along the barn, and the farmer or farm animals (if you have other kiddos/significant other who'd like to comply).

7- Spider in a Spider Web
If you have a baby carrier, this one will be a breeze.  Put some stuffing in some socks to make the extra legs, add some rope or string as the web and you're all set!

6- Eve
I think a lot of people may like this costume idea because it's takes breastfeeding back to the Christian origins of time.  If you have a nude colored tank top to glue some plastic fig leaves from the craft store you can pull a fast DIY that will work well with breastfeeding but there's so many other Eve costumes out there!

5- Sacagawea
This extremely brave Lemhi Shoshone Native American princess helped chart thousands of miles for the Lewis and Clark Expedition.  She carried her newborn son on her back throughout much of this journey and is a strong figure to represent the roots to our country.  This one can go wherever your imagination takes you!

The photo above offers a DIY video tutorial that you can incorporate the top panel with a slit for easy breastfeeding access. You could also go super basic on clothing (slice up the bottom of a brown tee) and experiment with hair accessories and makeup!
4- Pea in the Pod
This is another one especially for babywearing enthusiasts!  A GREEN ring sling would capture the effect best!  Baby just needs a little bunting and cap and you'll definitely win the "awwwwww" award.
