Welcoming a new child into your family is a joyous event, but the messes that come with a new baby can be anything but fun. Navigating keeping the home clean while caring for an infant can be a challenge for even the most energetic parent. Keeping your home clean doesn’t need to be an ordeal, with a few handy tips (and some help from your friends at Ivete’s Cleaning Service) your home can be in as organized a state as ever.
Creating a schedule with set chores for each person in the home can become a critical way to ensure the house stays in working order while you’re getting into the swing of things. You and your partner should draw up a list of household chores before the baby even arrives, spend time creating a schedule and figuring out how to divide up the work and what items can be let go to help make room in your lives for the new addition.
Cleaning With Baby
Using a baby sling to free up your arms can make it easier to get some light cleaning done while your baby is still attached to you. You may not be able to do heavy cleaning or anything that requires the use of cleaning chemicals, but general tidying up, dishes, and wiping down counters with a wet rag can all be done.
Vacuum Before Naps
You might think it odd to vacuum while the baby is about to nap, but helping them get used to sleeping through the noise is critical to ensuring that they become sound sleepers. Additionally, the noise of the vacuum is similar to that of a white noise machine and can help them fall asleep faster and more soundly.
Having designated places for the items in your home is essential for keeping everything organized. This is particularly important when it comes to baby items. Small bin organizers are a great way to keep bibs, pacifiers and more sorted and organized.
Call In Help
Having a service come to clean your home can be a huge help and relief to any new parent. A team can come once-a-week, every few weeks, or once a month to give your home the full, detailed, cleaning it needs to help keep your family comfortable. Not only does this make you more comfortable, but it can alleviate a significant amount of stress, making it a spectacular option for tired new parents. Whether it’s a gift for yourself or another new parent, hiring a cleaning service is one of the best presents any growing family will appreciate.
