Of course, the partner who is home with baby will prioritize the top things to do like making sure everyone has food to eat and clothes to wear when baby is settled, but other cleaning and organizing tasks (including the partner who is not home with baby taking over tending to baby when they get home), is a great way to let Mom relax after a busy day.
