Gabrielle Union and Kaavia James 'Bring It On' for Halloween.

These celebrities have the cutest Halloween costumes 🎃

A-listers are known for their elaborate, jaw-dropping Halloween costumes, but it's their mini-me's outfits we look forward to the most.

Here is what celebrities, their babies and kids are wearing on the spookiest day of the year!

Gabrielle Union-Wade and her daughter 'Bring It On' 

Gabrielle Union's daughter Kaavia James is only 11 months old but she is cancelling her mama's iconic 2000 film Bring It On this Halloween.

Union's costume bears the name of her character's high school team in the classic team comedy, while Kaavia's is similar but emblazoned with the name Runza. That's not a fictional high school team, but a real restaurant chain in Union's home state, Nebraska.

The restaurant gifted Kaavia the outfit weeks ago and she's been sporting it on her mom's Instagram ever since.

Jessica Biel dressed up as Justin Timberlake 

Mrs. Justin Timberlake was in a bit of hot water earlier this month when Jimmy Fallon dug up an old 1999 clip in which she said she didn't know or own any NSYNC music, but that they were "cool, I guess." That's why this year she's going as JT himself, back when he had the blonde, crunchy curly hair and a love for shiny jumpsuits.

Stormi is dressing like Kylie this year

Stromi Webster looks so much like her mama, Kylie, but even more so when she's all dressed up like her mogul mom.

Stormi's halloween look is a replica of her mom's met ball look, right down to the lavender wig.

She looks adorable adorable and her mama can't get enough.

"My baby!!!!!!!! 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 i cant handle this!!!!" she captioned Stormi's pics on Insta.

Ali Fedotowsky Manno 

The Malificent movie is in theatres now but a replica version is in Ali Manno's house as her daughter Molly has totally nailed the Angelina Jolie's look in time for Halloween.

"She picked her costume based off a billboard by our house - she's never seen Sleeping Beauty. I'm guessing she's just an Angelina Jolie fan. I mean, who isn't?" Manno wrote on Instagram.

The rest of the family followed Molly's lead and did the Sleeping Beauty theme, but it was pretty easy to put together, according to Manno.

"I'm pretty sure everything is 2 day shipping since most of it is from Amazon," she writes.

Pregnant Ashley Graham is Jessica Rabbit 

Ashley Graham is pregnant but that isn't stopping her from going all out this Halloween.

She committed to Jessica Rabbit in a red wig and even redder latex and looks as much like a cartoon bombshell as a human being can.


And let's not forget the celeb throwbacks from Halloweens past!

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel with son Silas as Lego heroes in 2018

If you thought super hero costumes were cool, you've never seen this. The Timberlake-Biel household won Halloween 2018 in their looks from the Lego Batman Movie. It's probably hard to sit down, but who needs to sit when you're trick-or-treating anyway?

Ayesha Curry and baby Canon channeling Snow White in 2018

Ayesha Curry's bob is so perfect for this costume, and baby Canon is such a cutie, who needs the other six dwarfs?

Mustard Mindy Kaling and her baby lion, Katherine in 2018

Nothing goes together like mustard and...a baby lion? Kaling and daughter Katherine didn't exactly have a theme going on, but with mom as a condiment and Katherine as the king of the beasts these two sure were cute.

Lauren Conrad and son Liam reacting The Birds in 2018

Liam is a little young to watch Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 classic, but he's absolutely adorable in this modern reenactment.

Kylie Jenner and Stormi as a stormy weather in 2018

Jenner didn't have to look for to find the inspiration for this epic look. This visual pun is too perfect.

Khloe Kardashian and True aa unicorns (and a bonus panda) in 2018

Khloe Kardashian's daughter True had more costumes for her first Halloween than her mama could fit it one pic. Scroll through Khloe's slideshow to see True transform from a baby unicorn to the sweetest little panda bear! 🐼

Jillian Harris and her whole family (even the dog) in 2018

Jillian Harris went down a rabbit hole this Halloween, dressing everyone in the fam (from baby Annie to her pooch Nacho Cilantro) in matching Alice in Wonderland costumes. We can't see her partner Justin Passuto's face in this shot, but we're sure he loves the look!

Todd Talbot and his family in 2018

Not to be outdone, Harris' Love it or List It, Too co-host, Todd Talbot, went all out with his kiddos. They picked The Greatest Showman as their family theme (suggesting Todd's kids and Pink's daughter share a favourite movies).

Ali Fedotowsky-Manno's daughter Molly was the cutest chicken ever in 2018

Busy Philips' daughter Birdie was a 90's girl in 2018

Last year little Birdie went (hilariously) as her mom (see below), and this year she's rocking the '80's aesthetic. Very realistic, Birdie!

Busy Philips daughter Birdie as Busy in 2017

Like we said, amazing.

Chrissy Teigen's daughter Luna in 2016

Have you ever seen a cuter hot dog?

Jillian Harris and the fam in 2016

Jillian Harris has added another cast member to her Halloween posse this year with the birth of daughter Annie, but we love this Wizard of Oz Halloween throwback photo, with son Leo reprising the role of the Cowardly Lion.

Jillian Harris' son in 2017

Jillian Harris is on a legit roll with Leo's amazing costumes. In 2017 he went as a wild thing from Where the Wild Things Are and his look was everything!

Alyssa Milano and daughter Elizabella in 2017

Actress Alyssa Milano and her daughter Elizabella were #twinning as Daisy Duck.

Reese Witherspoon and her daughter Ava twinning in 2007

Speaking of twins...Reese Witherspoon's daughter Ava is basically her mini-me so their look for Halloween 2007 was perfection.

Hilary Duff and son Luca in 2017

Luca and Younger actress Hilary Duff got into the Halloween spirit by dressing up as a LEGO and bunny, respectively.

Neil Patrick Harris and his family in 2017 (and every year, honestly)

Neil Patrick Harris' family pulls out all the stops for Halloween and last year's getup was no exception—he and his children (Harper Grace and Gideon Scott) dressed up as macabre circus performers.

Nicole Richie's son lost his head in 2017

For a PG-13 costume that's perfect for teens, check out Nicole Richie's son Sparrow's Headless Horseman costume.

Jimmy Fallon's daughter Winnie in 2014

Jimmy Fallon's daughter Winnie went as ramen for Halloween back in 2014. Her look was epic (and homemade!)

Time-saving formula tips our editors swear by

Less time making bottles, more time snuggling.

As a new parent, it can feel like feeding your baby is a full-time job—with a very demanding nightshift. Add in the additional steps it takes to prepare a bottle of formula and, well… we don't blame you if you're eager to save some time when you can. After all, that means more time for snuggling your baby or practicing your own well-deserved self-care.

Here's the upside: Many, many formula-feeding mamas before you have experienced the same thing, and they've developed some excellent tricks that can help you mix up a bottle in record time. Here are the best time-saving formula tips from editors here at Motherly.

1. Use room temperature water

The top suggestion that came up time and time again was to introduce bottles with room temperature water from the beginning. That way, you can make a bottle whenever you need it without worrying about warming up water—which is a total lifesaver when you have to make a bottle on the go or in the middle of the night.

2. Buy online to save shopping time

You'll need a lot of formula throughout the first year and beyond—so finding a brand like Comforts, which offers high-quality infant formula at lower prices, will help you save a substantial amount of money. Not to mention, you can order online or find the formula on shelves during your standard shopping trip—and that'll save you so much time and effort as well.

3. Pre-measure nighttime bottles

The middle of the night is the last time you'll want to spend precious minutes mixing up a bottle. Instead, our editors suggest measuring out the correct amount of powder formula into a bottle and putting the necessary portion of water on your bedside table. That way, all you have to do is roll over and combine the water and formula in the bottle before feeding your baby. Sounds so much better than hiking all the way to the kitchen and back at 3 am, right?

4. Divide serving sizes for outings

Before leaving the house with your baby, divvy up any portions of formula and water that you may need during your outing. Then, when your baby is hungry, just combine the pre-measured water and powder serving in the bottle. Our editors confirm this is much easier than trying to portion out the right amount of water or formula while riding in the car.

5. Memorize the mental math

Soon enough, you'll be able to prepare a bottle in your sleep. But, especially in the beginning or when increasing your baby's serving, the mental math can take a bit of time. If #mombrain makes it tough to commit the measurements to memory, write up a cheat sheet for yourself or anyone else who will prepare your baby's bottle.

6. Warm up chilled formula with water

If you're the savvy kind of mom who prepares and refrigerates bottles for the day in advance, you'll probably want to bring it up to room temperature before serving. Rather than purchase a bottle warmer, our editors say the old-fashioned method works incredibly well: Just plunge the sealed bottle in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes and—voila!—it's ready to serve.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says that newborns, especially, do not need a bath every day. While parents should make sure the diaper region of a baby is clean, until a baby learns how to crawl around and truly get messy, a daily bath is unnecessary.

So, why do we feel like kids should bathe every day?
