Cleaning List Before Baby Comes

Cleaning List Before Baby Comes Maid Services

A newborn comes with a lot of joy and responsibility, and to make your new job as a parent as easy as possible, there’s a list of things you can do to prepare for your baby’s arrival.  Some of these things relate to cleaning, some to preparing your home and/or nursery, and some to necessary purchases so your new child has everything it needs. Here is a helpful cleaning list for before your baby comes:

– Purchase diapers (disposable and cloth), as well as a carrier/stroller, car seat, breast pump

– Have a crib ready, with a new mattress, sheets, blankets, etc.

– Have a cradle with supply of batteries

– Purchase baby clothes, bottles, bibs, pacifiers, socks, pajamas, etc.

– Purchase bowls, plates, silverware, extra bottles, etc. (You probably won’t need this until baby can eat solid food, but it’s good to be prepared in advance.)

– Prepare your nursery: empty and clean it, paint it, fill in with crib/bedding, curtains, changing stations, etc.

– If you have yet to open and put away all your baby shower gifts, organize and put them away into a dresser in the baby’s nursery for easy access

– Rearrange your living spaces (living room and master bedroom) to accommodate your baby’s arrival (For example, de-clutter your closets, have open spaces for changing stations, etc.)

– Clean your refrigerator, dust and vacuum the house, clean your bathrooms

– Clean your blinds and curtains, wash your sheets

These are all general tasks to do around your home before your baby comes.  In terms of a cleaning list, it is recommended to not go so crazy as to sterilize everything.  It is important for your baby to build up antibodies and its immune system, and having a few common household germs will help your baby to grow up strong and healthy.
