    Dirty Diapers, Dirty Homes: Cleaning Tips for New Dads

    (ARA) - Move over, moms. You're not the only ones taking time off work to take care of a new baby. According to Oxygen/Markle Pulse, 70 percent of women and 63 percent of men agree that it is important for a father to take parental leave for at least two weeks following the birth of a child.

    New dads can clean up both dirty diapers and dirty homes. THE MAIDS International offers some tips to help dads lend a hand around the house while mom takes a much needed rest.

  • Vacuum the house for your wife to give her back a break. Remember to vacuum your way out of a room by starting in the far corner and working toward the door.
  • Keep your little one from inhaling cleaning fumes. When cleaning, spray the product directly onto a cloth, then wipe the surface.
  • Soap scum is the ultimate workout! Work on those bulging biceps while scrubbing the tub clean. Use a Dobie scrubber for soap scum and a grout brush to remove grime from tile. To clean the shower curtain, just stick it in the washer and lay flat to dry.
  • Use your brute strength and surprise your wife!
  • Get your floors so clean you won't mind if your baby eats off them! Scrub them by hand using mild disinfectant and warm water.
  • Enlist other children's help with household chores by making them fun. Pretend the toy box is a basketball net and the toys are basketballs. Have your child try to score points by getting the toys in the toy box.

    The Diaper Genie

    By Melissa Ramsdell for Your Baby Today
    When your baby is kicking and squirming on the changing table, the last thing you want to worry about is where to put the poopy diaper. That's why experienced moms often insist that new mothers add a Diaper Genie to their list of essential baby gear. The genie is a tall plastic tub with a tight-fitting lid and a special gizmo inside that seals in each diaper to hold the odor. It's light enough to carry from room-to-room. On the down side, some moms complain that it doesn't hold 100 percent of the odor. But other mothers swear by it. Refills can become an added expense that some mothers may not want, or can afford. If you're not strapped for cash, it might be worth a try.

    Tip of the Day

  • When buying an infant monitor, get more than one receiver. This way you can plant them in different parts of the house (e.g., the family room, bedroom, deck or patio) instead of having to move one unit all over the house.
  • Keep your infant monitor on a bookshelf or dresser and not right next to your baby's crib. Otherwise you will hear every little toss and turn he makes through the night and it will keep you awake.
  • To help your baby sleep better through the night, establish (and stick to) a regular bedtime routine (e.g., bottle, bath, books and bed).
  • Prepare all your day's bottles of formula the night before by 9 p.m. so you'll be ready for the early morning and regular morning feedings.
  • Keep a normal noise level in your house when your baby naps during the day so she'll get used to sleeping in the real world.
  • Prepare and sign a permission form that gives someone close to you (e.g., your mother or sister) the right to seek emergency medical care for your baby in your absence. When you leave your baby with a sitter, make sure she knows where that form is as wel
  • Record your baby's monthly immunizations on your calendar on the date when she had the shots so you'll have an easy-to-access record.
  • Put a few layers of crib sheets and waterproof pads on your baby's crib for quick changes and cleanups.
  • Rotate your baby's favorite toys with those of friends' babies who are about the same age. This way your baby will get to enjoy new toys without you having to buy more.
  • Record yourself speaking or singing to your baby so the next time you have to leave her she'll have your voice to calm her if she gets fussy.
