For all the moms out there that also take on the task of running a household, your plate is already full; however, combine that with expecting a child and it can be daunting. One of the most time-consuming chores would be laundry. Although it’s very necessary, no too many people enjoy it and it only becomes more physically taxing during pregnancy. The following, are tips to reduce the amount of time and energy expecting mothers spend on laundry.
Divide Up Large Laundry Loads
Pregnancy takes a lot of energy from the body and makes it much easier for expecting women to become exhausted. To avoid overexertion, it’s important to avoid lifting heavy weight.
Now, when your goal is to complete laundry for the entire family, it’s likely you’ll have heavy laundry baskets to carry. So, to minimize the weight you’re carrying, divide your laundry into several smaller baskets. This same thinking can be applied with detergent as well. Bringing multiple smaller containers is an effective way to lighten the amount you’ll have to carry at one time.
Go At Off-Peak Hours
If possible, visiting the laundromat around the busy time is ideal. During less busy hours, more washer and dryers are available, which allows you to do multiple loads at once. This helps optimize your time at the laundromat.
Bring Relaxing Activities
When you’re expecting, there’s so much planning that has to happen for the new member of your family and having to juggle that with household chores is a lot for anyone.
While you’re waiting for your clothes in the washer or dryer, use this time to take a breather and just relax. Consider unwinding with a good book or magazine. For those that enjoy this, shopping for baby clothes online can be a productive way to relax while waiting for your laundry to finish.
