The mom behind Baby Mugging, Epic Baby Hair, and Evil Baby Glare-Off has started another amazing meme called Baby Suiting (#babysuiting), which involves dressing up babies in grown-up sized suits and ties.

I can't decide if I think it's totally fantastic or the tiniest bit creepy—or both. Maybe I just need to get my hands on a baby so I can get in on the act myself. (My toddler would totally not stand for this.)

Wiles told New York Daily News that the idea originally stemmed from trying to dress babies up to look like characters from Mad Men, "but women's clothing really didn't work. The suits were much funnier. Something about the big padded shoulders made them all look like that scene in Beetlejuice with the shrunken head."

In fact, Wiles almost called the concept #beetlejuicing, but worried that not everyone would get the shrunken-head reference from the movie. Frankly, I love that, because those baby heads do look so incredibly tiny in those enormous suits.

You can see some of Wiles original baby suiting images below, as well as the funniest Baby Suiting Instagram submissions she's received. Want to suit up your own baby? You can submit pics to Wiles' Instagram page (@mommyshorts).

Quick tip for all you parents all out there: My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>>>SleepBaby .org<<<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! Sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link. >>SleepBaby .org<< Best of luck to you and your family! :)
