Cleaning up after baby!

How often do you clean up after your babies?
Aside from meal times etc, I'm talking toys.
My ds who is 14 mo makes a total mess, which I'm fine with. Every nap time he has I pick up all his toys and his playroom (2 times a day.. Once in the morning, once in the afternoon), then at night once he's in bed I do the same.
Dh was home yesterday bc he wasn't feeling well and couldn't believe I cleaned up after him that much during the day. His reasoning is why not leave it until night? I agree with him, but the messier it gets the longer it takes to clean up.
What do you moms do??

I do about the same as you do actually.  Sometimes if we have a lot going on I only pick up once.

Ok good so I'm not insane!
Dh thinks I create more work that needed and wants me to just relax with him and watch a movie haha! Butttt what he doesn't get is that things wouldn't be how they are if I were to relax 24-7!

I understand completely.  If I have a lazy day by the end of the day my apartment would be destroyed.

My baby is only 5 months old but when my girls were younger I would pick up during their naps and then again before I went to bed. Sorry I cn't relax with a bunch of stuff all over the floor. Baby toys hurt just as much as legos when you step on them.

Funny you say that.. I have a big old bruise on the bottom if my foot from one. Forget the choking hazard!
