What is a Mom Hack?
A mom hack is a creative solution for any issue you experience while raising your newborn. Moms from around the country can submit their Mom Hacks for a chance to be featured in our Mom Hacks series. Our goal is to help moms find new solutions for common challenges.

Submission Guidelines
Please follow these guidelines for best chance of being featured in Mom Hacks:

  • Include your baby in the video

  • Let someone else record you or place the camera on a level surface

  • If recording on a phone, turn it sideways instead of vertically (to avoid black bars on video)

  • Test sound before recording

When you have finished, please send the video file (in mp4 format) to hello@checkwithellie.com with the subject line ‘Mom Hacks’ and your name. 

Video Instructions
Start off your video by saying the following:

"Hi, my name is (first name) and this is baby (baby's name) and we're from (state)."

Then tell us what your Mom Hack is by answering these simple questions:

  • What issue were you trying to solve?
  • How long after birth did you start experiencing this issue?

  • How did the issue make you feel?

  • How did you solve the problem/what is your Mom Hack?
