Sweet Baby Jesus, lovingly cradled by his mother Mary, completes the Holy Family of three. Our Savior is born.
A Baby Jesus costume can be a simple blanket that can be swaddled, or a Baby Jesus doll.

Baby Jesus Costume for a Christmas Play
You’ll see that, in many Christmas worship services, a young couple who has a newborn will play the parts of the Holy Family. While the Biblical passages of the birth of Jesus are read, the couple approaches the altar with their real baby. It’s a lovely visual for the congregation as they hear the Christmas Story.
If you have little ones playing the parts of the Holy Family, you’ll want to use a Baby Jesus doll rather than a living baby. If you’re not using a real baby in your manger scene, this adorable plush Baby Jesus doll is perfect for the crib. It can be easily carried by a child and you won’t have to worry about the safety of using a real baby to portray Baby Jesus.
This is a more realistic-looking Baby Jesus. This 9″ doll is made of rubber with a skin-like feel and clothed in a white tunic with a white blanket. The manger is included!
Here’s a 100% cotton swaddling blanket for a real baby. It helps the newborn baby sleep longer, and eases fussiness which is sometimes a problem during the enactment of the Christmas story.
