Mom's with crawlers...how often do you vacuum and sweep?

Answer:

From what I've heard it's super common for babies to be scared of vacuum cleaners. Oddly enough, my son's always been in love with ours though. I kind of contribute it to the fact that I've always been a neurotic vacuumer (would do the floors every single day)... so I think he got used to the noise in utero. Either way, I'm lucky that it wasn't a problem in our house, and I still vacuum every other day... I'd just leave him in the middle of the room and vacuum around him while he laughed. Now that he's walking, he chases it everywhere and tries to tackle it. You could try doing it in the evening once he's sleeping if that wouldn't wake him up. Or, I'd just keep trying... eventually he won't be so scared of it. Try just turning it on and letting him touch it and get used to it instead of trying to get it over with as quickly as possible. Just a thought :-) Good luck though, and I wouldn't stress about keeping the floor perfect. It might just be easier to do a daily sweep on your hands knees to pick up carpet junk.
When my children were smaller I use to sweep and mop once a day (usually in the evenings after they went to bed), and vacuum every other day (depending on how much stuff they were sticking in their mouths). One of my sons was terrified of the vacuum (he use to scream!) but then he got to where he liked to chase the vacuum...it just depends on your kid, I don't know how to help you there.
all wood floors here, sweep maybe twice a day, plus spot sweeping a couple times (to control the crumbs from cherios, fishes, etc) but i have a dog and get hair on the floor rather fast i HATE sweeping now!!!! ps for vaccuming, hell get used to it, i have swiffer vac, and my son was scared of it too, now he doesnt care. Turn it on and sit with him beside it, touch it, get him to touch it stick your feet on the floor beside it, and his, let it run and show youre not scared and nothing will happen.
