6+ Celeb Parenting Hacks We're Totally Going To Start Using

I know it sounds cheesy to say this, but celebrities are really just like us.

No really, I mean it. They might have millions of fans and make movies for a living, but at the end of the day, they're just regular people with their own parenting hacks to share.

Not only do these celebrity parenting hacks have the star seal of approval, they're cheap AND they work. You can never know enough parenting hacks, in my opinion anyways.

Kristen Bell

When Kristen is out and about with her two girls, she always uses this smart hack in parking lots. "Hands on the circle," she tells her daughters and they put their hands on the car's gas cap. It keeps them close to the car and out of harm's way.

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy Teigen has a smart idea to get her babies comfortable in the tub. She would line the tub with their swaddles so they have something comforting and familiar nearby.

Drew Barrymore

Since Drew is a busy mom who has to travel for work often, she came up with a calendar system to help her kids keep track of when she is away. She circles dates where she'll be gone and her daughters mark them with an "X" when the day passes.

Chance The Rapper

Chance The Rapper tweeted out this formula for a tear-free hairstyling experience. If your daughter has tight curls, then you're going to want to bookmark this tweet.

Jessica Simpson

No one wants their kids to color on the walls... unless you install a giant chalkboard wall in your playroom like Jessica did. Now the kids can draw on the walls all they want.

Jessica Alba

Moms always feel like they need another pair of hands. Jessica Alba solved this problem by using her chin to hold the bottle for a short period of time.

Carrie Underwood

If you're looking to start a workout routine but wondering what to do with you baby, just bring them with you to the park. That's what Carrie Underwood did. There are a ton of stroller-friendly workouts you can do, and you can even use the playground as your gym.

Kristen Bell... again

A broken diaper is every parent's worst nightmare. A broken diaper on a plane? I don't even want to think about it. Kristen Bell used a hair tie on her daughter's diaper when this happened to her and it is genius.

Khloé Kardashian

Khloé loves her long nails, but fans have been wondering for a long time how she manages to buckle True's car seat with her manicure. The answer? She reportedly uses a car seat key. So smart!

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah told Today, “My daughter was doing this thing lately where she was asking me for a cup of milk and not drinking it. So I told her that every time she’d ask me for a cup of milk and not drink it, I would take a quarter out of her piggy bank. Someone has to pay for that milk.”

Busy Philipps

A little unconventional, but Busy told Us Weekly that she uses sibling rivalry to get her kids to eat their veggies, “I’m like, ‘I feel like Cricket’s going to finish her broccoli first,’ and then Birdie’s like, ‘I can finish it first.’”

Jenna Fischer

This one's for parents who don't have the luxury of a safe play area for their youngins. Jenna told Hellogiggles:

"We would get coffee, and then we would let him toddle through Ikea, and then we would end with an ice cream. It was super safe, everything was really soft.

But also he loved that there were arrows on the ground, he loved following the arrows, and then there’s the kids’ section of Ikea. Ikea really is the Disneyland for 18-month olds.”

Gabrielle Union

Gab uses the "gas be gone" trick to help her little one let go of that gassy tummy they've got goin' on.

Kim Kardashian

Kim told Ellen DeGeneres on her show that her eldest daughter North was extremely jealous after the birth of her son Saint, and she would put a milk box with a straw in her bra for North to drink from while she breastfed Saint.
