How the bedroom should be cleaned with the arrival of a newborn? The ideal temperature? The humidity? And stuffed animals and toys how often do they need to be washed?
As for the baby’s room, there are some simple and short rules to follow. We must avoid that there are plush toys or carpets in the bedroom: they bring bacteria or mites that are not good for the newborn. Curtains also shouldn’t be too bulky. The walls can be painted with water-based paint of your favorite color.
Humidification and room temperature
Here are the rules for temperature and humidity when there is a newborn. In winter, there should be no more than 20 or 21 ° C in the bedroom. The room must be humidified during the night around 40-45 ° humidity.
During the summer, the use of an air conditioner is recommended. To have a comfortable environment, however, it is not necessary to lower the temperature to excess, but it is also sufficient to decrease it by four to five degrees compared to the starting temperature.
Cleaning of soft toys and toys
The soft toys and toys in the room must be sanitized regularly: soft toys in the washing machine, toys in the bathtub with detergent.
