A Newborn on the Way? Keeping Your Home Clean and DisinfectedAwaiting the arrival of your little bundle of joy gives you time to consider all the ways your life will be changing. One thing you will probably obsess over as a new parent is the cleanliness of your home. Of course, you clean but is it sanitary enough for a newborn? When you are working, it can be difficult to keep up with everything. Trying to take care of your home on your days off can be time-consuming and you may not always feel like cleaning.
It is likely you have been reading about newborns particularly if you are expecting your first child. If so, you know that a baby’s immune system does not fully develop until they are approximately six months of age. When you have a newborn, it is easy to procrastinate when it comes to housecleaning. You want to spend free time with the baby or resting but you still worry about keeping your home germ-free.
Once the baby arrives there will be visits from friends and family who will want to come and see your little one. This will add to the number of germs that will be transferred to your home. You need to protect your precious newborn from all of these germs. In addition, you need to protect yourself because if you get sick you cannot care for your baby. What should you do to ensure that your home is as germ-free as possible?
The Importance of Keeping your Home Germ Free
Germs can multiply rapidly in ways that you cannot imagine. Everything that you come into contact with on a daily basis contains germs from light switches to the buttons on your cell phone or tablet. The bathroom is a breeding ground for microbial bacteria due to constant moisture.
Germs that cause colds and flu are more prevalent during certain seasons. Although many people think winter weather is responsible for colds and flu, it is actually the fact that you stay inside more when it is cold than you do during warm weather. The holiday gatherings, grocery stores, and even the doctor’s office puts you in contact with people and germs. Then you carry them home.
You cannot keep germs from invading your home. This is impossible. While you clean and sanitize on a regular basis, it is even more important to make certain your home is as germ-free as possible when the baby arrives. This can be overwhelming for new moms and moms that have other children to care for as well.
What is the Solution?
Adjusting to middle of the night feedings can take a toll and you may just feel like sleeping while your newborn naps. You can keep up with the basics like dishes, keeping your home free of clutter, and taking out the trash but intense cleaning is probably the last thing on your mind at this time.
