Baby Easter outfits are a cute way to celebrate Easter with your kids. If you have an Easter baby, then they will most definitely be too small to take part in the Easter egg hunt and to eat chocolate eggs. But you can dress them up in adorable clothing covered with chicks, eggs or bunnies.
Toddlers will be super excited to hunt for eggs all dressed up in an Easter outfit. An Easter bunny costume would be especially thrilling. You could also buy cute Easter bunny pajamas to help them count down the sleeps until Easter.
On this page you’ll find an adorable selection of baby Easter outfits for infants ranging from newborns through toddlers sized 4T. You’ll also find some fun facts about Easter and its traditional symbols.

The Easter Bunny
The bunny rabbit or hare has been a pagan symbol of spring for a long time because they are a great symbol of fertility. In fact, hares can become pregnant with a second litter of babies while already pregnant. The rabbit became a popular motif in medieval Christian church art and it was once believed that a hare could become pregnant without losing its virginity. This created a close association between rabbits and the Virgin Mary. Because eggs are a symbol of rebirth, by the 18th century the idea of an egg-laying Easter bunny was born. At this time children were told to make a nest in their bonnets and if they had been good then the Easter bunny would lay eggs for them. Nowadays kids eagerly await the Easter bunny who lays colorful foil-wrapped chocolate Easter eggs in the garden.

Easter Bunny Costumes for Infants
A bunny costume makes a super cute baby Easter outfit. The Lil’ Bunny infant costume is a three piece costume for babies. The pink and white cape has a carrot at the neck and an attached hood with floppy bunny ears (if you want the ears to stand up like in the photo you’ll have to ‘MacGyver’ them a little bit – threading some stiff wire through the inside of the fabric should do the trick). The costume also comes with a pair of bunny mittens and a pair of fluffy bunny booties with non-skid soles. The outfit doesn’t include the pink onesie shown in the photo. This cute bunny costume fits babies 6 – 12 months.
Little Chicks and Easter
Eggs are a symbol of fertility and new life. Chicken eggs are most closely associated with Easter so naturally the tiny chicks that emerge from these eggs have become a symbol of this new life. They are very cute as well which also makes them a popular symbol of Easter. At one time it was quite popular to give a chick as an Easter present. This practice is actively discouraged these days because chicks grow up quickly into chickens, they require special care and they can live a long time. They are definitely not an appropriate gift to give on a whim. It’s much better to give chocolate and candy chicks, and of course baby Easter outfits featuring baby chicks.
Chick Themed Baby Easter Outfits
Chick onesies are a cute idea for baby Easter outfits. Lamaze has a three-pack of chick bodysuits that would be perfect for baby girls. The set includes a bright pink onesie with blue trim and a blue and pink Easter chick on the front, a white onesie with pink trim and multi-colored chicks all over, and a blue onesie with pink trim and the word ‘cutie’ on the front. The cotton onesies have lap-style shoulders and snaps at the bottom for easy dressing. Available for newborn babies.
The ‘Chicks are All Over Me’ bodysuit is a funny Easter onesie for baby boys. Just like it says this blue onesie is covered with Easter chicks. Available in 0 – 3 month, 3 – 6 month, 6 – 12 month, 12 – 18 month and 18 – 24 month sizes.
Mud Pie’s Easter chick dress is really cute. The outfit is soft blue and white which is perfect for Easter. The sleeveless dress has ruffles at the neck and there are adorable chick appliques at the pockets. Available for toddler girls in 2T, 3T, 4T and 5. Please note that Mud Pie sizes do tend to run small.

Painted Eggs for Easter
With the egg representing fertility and new life it’s not surprising that the practice of decorating eggs dates back a long time. The earliest recorded findings of decorated eggs are 60,000 year-old ostrich eggs that were discovered in Africa. In Christianity Easter eggs represent the resurrection and the Church officially declared them a part of Easter in 1610. Hard-boiled chicken eggs were traditionally dyed red to represent the blood of Christ. Over the years the eggs were dyed or painted in more cheery pastel colors and have taken on a less somber connotation. Although in many homes eggs are still decorated today, it’s definitely a modern custom to replace the painted Easter eggs with chocolate eggs or colorful jelly beans. Finding Easter eggs and jelly beans hidden in the garden is an exciting part of Easter that kids look forward to every year.
