  • Yes, I vacuum everyday during nap and in the evenings when they go to bed.

  • Yes they could sleep through a hurricane so I am able to vacuum, even when they are asleep on the couch!

  • I clean on the weekends (work full time during the week so not much time for cleaning) and do it while my daughter is napping. She's afraid of the vacuum, so I try not to do it while she's awake unless I use the hand held. Trying to ease her into getting used to it.

  • Yes, especially if it's down stairs and my youngest is napping up stairs in her room with the door cracked. It's something about the noise of a vaccuum tho that is soathing for infanst and young kids.

  • I didn't change my routine when my DD was born 7 years ago. She had the vaccum going under her crib when she was sleeping. She actually likes a fan in her room because she likes the sound of it. I can do anything still to this day and my baby girl will not wake up unless I am nudging her.

  • i can vaccuum with my dd asleep in the same room.. it never wakes her up. but when she is awake and vaccuum she gets up on the couch and hides behind the cushions because she's so scared.
