A clean home for your new baby
WELCOME NEW BABY WITH HYGIENE
If you’re expecting to welcome your little one into this world soon, we can only imagine your excitement! As parents, we all want to provide the best for our babies – the best things, the best opportunities and all the love and support in the world.
To provide a safe and secure home for your infant, it is very important to get your home-cleaning routine right.
Keep in mind that:
- Things are gonna get super hectic with the baby’s arrival and housework might end up being the last thing on your mind
- The kind of cleaning products you’re using will have a direct effect on your baby’s health and happiness, and also your sanity
Your new baby is going to take over your life and time-table as soon as it arrives. While your first priority is probably catching up on your sleep, do not let cleaning take a back seat! Here are some tips to prepare for your new adventure
Organize your home and make a schedule to keep calm
It’s easy to get lost in the piles of dirty bottles, towels and baby clothes. But if you’re not organized, your distress will only grow. A tidy home and organized process is important for your mental health. Research also suggests that clean homes keep your energy high and stress levels low. And having everything handy and ready to go will make those first days smoother. To keep yourself on track, write down your schedule and pin it where you won’t miss it.
Clean regularly to stay healthy
Infants have low immunity so you cannot afford to have a dirty home around them. And even with your own developed immune systems, viruses and bacteria lurking around aren’t good news. You might fall sick and pass it on to the baby. If your workload keeps piling up you’ll have to overwork yourself more – and imagine doing that while being down and out!
Clean routinely to enjoy your new family
Cleaning every day means you’re not piling up your chores. Once you add this to your routine, you won’t even notice it. And that way chores won’t eat into your ‘me time’ and also your ‘baby and me time’ – those precious moments when you put your legs up and just soak in the new joys.
Split the workload!!
Gone are the days when housework was the ‘ladies’ department’. As the woman of the house, you’re probably juggling your job as well. And even if you’re not, everyone in the house must pitch in – men, women and children. You will need all hands on deck, even more so now.
By the way, do you know?Babies deprive their parents of approximately 44 days of sleep.
Assign chores to everyone in the house so that the burden is shared and one person is not crumbling under pressure. If you aren’t doing it already, a new baby is the perfect time for a new beginning in terms of healthy family dynamics.
Wash and sanitize in advance
Once the baby’s home your house needs to be germ-free. But what do you need to do to ensure that?
Prepare in advance and keep your baby’s clothing and linen washed before time. Because you’re going to have to clean them many times in the days to come, it would help to get a head start.
You should also sanitize the things your baby will need, specially those that will go into his mouth, like bottles, nipples, pacifiers and teethers.
Find a good sanitizer, detergent and dishwashing soap and surface cleaner that is safe for the baby and won’t expose him/her to toxic residue and harsh chemicals.
