The Halloween party featured plenty of Playboy Playmates and models wearing nothing but freshly applied body paint; the invitations read "Sexy Costumes Mandatory." Grammer, 57, went as a vampire; his wife, 31-year-old Kayte Grammer, dressed as a witch; and 3-month-old Faith went as herself, tucked into a black baby carrier. A picture posted on TMZ showed the infant fast asleep, one pink-striped bootie visible under the edge of the plain white blanket, with half-empty drinks around her.

"Kelsey Grammer's 3-month-old daughter was surrounded by hot chicks, booze, and velvet at the Playboy Mansion Halloween party," TMZ crowed. The gossip site reported that Grammer was partying at a table with Paris Hilton until after midnight.

Even party goers were puzzled. "Why the fk does Kelsey Grammar have a newborn baby at the Mansion party!?!?!?" tweeted one playmate.

On Wednesday, Grammar released a statement justifying his decision to introduce his little girl to Playboy way early.

"Kayte is breast-feeding and we do not have a nanny or a trusted baby-sitter at this time, so Faith goes everywhere with us," Grammer said in a statement. "We enjoyed the party with a few of our friends, the baby slept as her ears were covered the entire time and we left shortly after midnight."

Parents, what do you think? Is bring a sleeping baby to a sexy party a no-no, or no big deal?
