  • I was going to say wear the baby and clean, but it looks like that isn't a option. The only other thought is wait until nap time or after bed time. I also get stuff done on the weekends when dh is home and can watch the baby for a bit. Do the best you can. I have come to terms with the fact that my house will never be as clean as it was pre-baby.

  • Go to FLYlady.com. her site is a HUGE help for anyone, and the best part is that it teaches you how to organize your life in every aspect from cleaning, errands, meals, etc while taking baby steps to form the routine into habits. I love it and there is no pressure to do it perfect. Other than that, I made a list of everything that I think needs to be done daily and weekly into one list. I then marked the tasks that were daily for each room and divided the rest by one to two tasks in each room for each day. It helps me not feel overwhelmed and not spend all of my time cleaning also. It is a challenge until you find what works best for you. Good luck
