Some new moms and dads might have it in their mind that they want to pick up the house right when they get home so that it’s nice and clean for the new baby. Unfortunately, that ship has sailed and there are much bigger fish to fry.

It might come as a surprise, but babies don’t exactly pop out right when you are expecting them. There is a good chance that a pregnant mom-to-be was planning on picking up the house, dusting, sweeping, or even doing some laundry before her baby arrived. However, nature

has a way of taking over. It can be frustrating as new parents who want everything to be perfect when you bring that little bundle of joy home for the first time, but your house may not look perfect. Just remember that your baby is what’s important, not the fact that you didn’t have time to sweep before they arrived.

According to Parents.com, it is recommended that you deep clean the areas of your house that may hold the most germs, such as doorknobs and light switches. They recommend doing this before the baby arrives so that you don’t have to worry about it with a newborn. Of course, you can’t get to everything on your list before your water breaks, so if the day comes to bring your baby home from the hospital, cleaning shouldn’t be something to worry about.
