Spring is here! Are you opening doors and airing out? This blog post will hopefully give some pointers on how to approach spring cleaning, or cleaning any other time of the year with toddlers in tow.
Okay Mamas (and Dads) what do you do when you need to clean the house and you’ve got a very active baby or young toddler hanging around? Pulling out cleaning supplies is stressful when you’ve got a little guy who loves to grab the dust brush, jump into the tub and wander into your kitchen — even if you have gates and have childproofed everything possible! And don’t forget how toddlers “help” by pulling papers and toys onto the floor! Even if you are the master of childproofing, it’s hard to keep little ones safe when you’ve got to vacuum or mop…
So, what do you do?
We’ve come up with some tips to make it a little easier
1. Plan out what you are going to do first, second…and so forth.
2. Try to get as much done during nap time or after they’re sleeping at night (obviously this isn’t when you vacuum).
3. Have them “help” a little. If they can understand directions, they can help you pick up their own toys. Have large bins/baskets that they can easily put things into (and will help you organize their stuff).
4. In situations where you don’t want them helping, such as mopping or vacuuming, utilize your playard! Make sure there are soft toys inside and the sheet is clean and let him play! This way, your little one is safe, nearby, and you know they’re not getting into cleaning supplies or slipping on a freshly mopped floor.

The Joovy Room² Ultralight is very pleasing to the eye. It is available in a vibrant hue of green or black and has a very lightweight frame, making it easy to pick up and move around.
We were very impressed by the quality of the playard. Thanks to its tapered design, its very sturdy. It has lots of room for baby to move around.
The playard takes a bit of time to assemble. It took three people about twenty minutes to figure the instructions and illustrations out. No tools are required to put the playard together. In theory, its supposed to just pop open and the side rails should lock, but it took us a long time to get the rails in the correct place.
The playard takes up a large amount of space, which is something to keep in mind if you are using it in a cramped bedroom or hotel room. Assembled, the product will not easily fit in a closet or car trunk, but it is very compact when unassembled. The playard is much easier to take apart than to put together it only took one person to put it away. The product can be disassembled two different ways for storage purposes: in half for quick storage, or in a super compact fold for travel.
The playard is a safe and sturdy product. There are no special safety features.
The playard is very comfortable. It has a nice, thick, extremely soft foam mattress though its not so soft as to cause concern for SIDS. The product comes with a fitted sheet made specifically to fit the mattress.
This product is very versatile: it can be used both in the house and outside, and has enough room for baby to sleep or to play. The playard accommodates babies and toddlers up to 35 inches tall, with no weight limit. The only downside is that it has to be disassembled to fit though a regular doorway. The joovy playard only has one level for the child to sleep.
This item is easy to clean. The manufacturer recommends cleaning the playard by wiping it down with a clean cloth. It has fabric handrails and netting on the sides. The comfortable fabric mattress can be easily wiped clean with soap and water.
