There is no time quite like when you are bringing a new baby home. The whole place gets a good amount of preparation before the newborn comes in for the first time. Tots are tiny and vulnerable, and you cannot be too careful when removing the things, which could harm them in any way. So here is what you should do.
Make sure the floors are clean at all times. If they are carpeted, steam clean the carpets before the baby is brought in. sweep the floor regularly and remove any fabric strands or choking hazards.
Dust everything. Removing dust is essential to making sure the baby won’t be exposed to allergens.
The kitchen needs to be cleaned, because that is where you will be making a lot of the baby’s food. Not to mention all the items you will use which will be kept here, such as bottles, milk, and formula.
The nursery and everything in it should be kept squeaky clean. It is where the baby will be most of the time. Don’t forget the toys.
Wash all the linen and dry them in the sun.
Use disinfectant liberally around the home, and clean that up with water after you are sure the germs have been killed off.
It doesn’t bear mentioning how important it is to keep the home clean when a baby first enters it. They are not used to allergens of any sort for the first couple of weeks. Another risk is from small objects that they will readily put into their mouths, which is why choke hazards need to be removed from their reach.
It is good to have the baby sleep in your room for the first month, or two. Move the crib into your room and make sure that there isn’t any clutter when you lay him or her down. A soft object could suffocate them when they turn their head into it. Wrap the baby in snuggly blankets to keep him/her warm, and learn to do this quickly. Wash these snuggly blankets regularly so they don’t catch an allergy or infection.
Your newborn needs to be protected from clutter and dirt. While it is true that babies build up immunity pretty fast, some things can still be harmful to them. Their first weeks in the home should be comfortable, and if you are too busy to handle the home cleaning yourself, call in a San Jose cleaning service for the job.
