Cleaning with a baby is kind of a joke if you ask me. Especially one who is SUPER attached to Mom and Dad and doesn’t want to leave their side. Fortunately, Solly Baby Wraps exist because they make it possible to do the impossible. Today we’ve teamed up with Kenmore to talk cleaning with babies and how to get it done! Plus I’m sharing my favorite go to stick vacuum for fast spot cleaning and I volunteered the husband to clean for this post, how nice of me right?!
I’ve got three simple rules I’ve made when it comes to cleaning with the babe.
Patience is key. Cleaning use to take me an hour, maybe less. Now it literally takes all day in between work and caring for Blake. I’ve learned that’s OKAY. It doesn’t matter if it takes an hour or all day, even all week! We’re doing the best we can and that’s what matters! Our people love us no matter what.
Grab that baby wrap. Seriously, if your babe will let you wear her or him, do it! I can get so much more done while I’m wearing Blake. It’s amazing. If you wear them a little tighter it makes it easy to bend down, pick things up, etc! If your little isn’t into being worn–try a toy distraction! Blake loves that too, as long as she can see me!
Make it a game! This is actually my favorite part and I secretly love cleaning now, secretly. I turn on music, Blake and I dance around (okay, I dance around…) and she laughs and laughs. It’s great! I’ll play peek-a-boo while I vacuum, dance while I wipe off the tables and giggle with her as I tidy up!
Finally, my go to cleaning device right now–this Kenmore stick vacuum! Seriously y’all it’s been the best thing I own since having Blake. It’s easy to use, light weight and there’s no cord so it’s perfect for quick clean ups and spills. However, I’ve totally used it to vacuum my entire house as well…
