Hi, I’m Alexis

The Mat Leave Mom launched in 2018, for millennial moms who love unfiltered advice on baby care tips, traveling with toddler tips, easy child-approved recipes, and DIY tutorials. This site aims to make parenthood a little bit easier. You will feel at home here if you love traveling, cooking, and crafting. In my small corner of the digital web, I’ll be sharing my best tried and tested parenthood secrets, as well as in-depth articles designed to help cultivate a life of balance, self-identity, and happiness in the circus act we call parenting.
