Cleaning your house before you give birth is kind of like the ultimate spring cleaning. You want to go from room to room, and top to bottom. Decide where your baby will sleep in the nursery. Place the crib away from items that might pose a safety hazard, such as cords for blinds. In essence, the first night at home with your newborn may be more stressful than you hope due to the fact that both you and your little one have a lot of adjustments to make together. It's perfectly normal and expected for newborns to be fussy and cry more when we try to put them down.

How to clean the house before the baby comes:

  1. Declutter
  2. Dusting
  3. Vacuum
  4. Clean the Carpets
  5. Mop Hard floors
  6. Wax Furniture
  7. Wash the Windows
  8. Deep Cleaning the Bathroom


How To Prepare Your Home For A New Baby

  1. Plan a move well in advance.
  2. Batch cook before the birth. 
  3. Put together a downstairs basket. 
  4. Clear away the clutter. 
  5. Invest in smart storage. 
  6. Rethink your spaces.


Prep, cook, and freeze extra meals. Stock up on household essentials, like laundry detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, and other cleaning tools. You should definitely wash baby's clothes, blankets and other washable items that will come in contact with their skin. It's not necessary to do it before they're born, but it's a good idea to do it before they wear them.


What Should be Pre-Washed Before Your Baby Arrives

  • Baby clothes.
  • Any baby accessories made of fabric.
  • Blankets and swaddle blankets.
  • Stuffed animals and other cloth toys.

Do this around 4-6 weeks before the baby is due. This is close enough to the date so that the clothes aren't sitting for months on end collecting dust. But it isn't too close to your due date when you should be focusing on rest and preparing for birth.


What do you need in your baby's room:

  1. Cradle, crib, bassinet, or Pack 'n Play.
  2. Dresser or clothing bins.
  3. Rocking chair or glider.
  4. Toy bins.
  5. Lighting.
  6. Diaper changing table.
  7. Laundry hamper.


Most people find the first six to eight weeks to be the hardest with a new baby, and whilst people may not openly discuss many of the challenges in these early weeks of parenthood (if at all), there are a number of common hurdles you may face at this time.

Slowing down and truly giving your body the chance to heal is one of the best things that you can do for yourself. So, to recap, if at all possible, avoid using the vacuum cleaner for the first 6 weeks postpartum. If you need to sweep or mop, really take it easy.
