Wait why does it take hours to fold laundry?

Maybe try doing more frequent, but smaller loads of laundry. And commit to folding right after. When there’s less to fold, it’s way less daunting.

For sure you can hire someone! Hire a high schooler for a few hours a week!

Find a cleaning lady who will do this for you. The ones in burbs that do this are rare unicorns. Once you find one don’t let them go.

I know a ton of people in the suburbs of boston that hire people to come and do their laundry. They might have them
Two afternoons a weeks to cook, food shop, fold, change sheets, the domestic shit that has to get done. Start with your babysitters or cleaning lady or nanny, and see if they’ll take ok extra duties. Task rabbit or concierge or babysitter. Lots of options

Can the kids pair socks or fold undies (if you do that)? Fold while watching TV?

...to hang out with my kids. Do you hire help for just laundry? Tell me about how beautiful it is on the other side.

I had a babysitter for a while who'd do this (part of her scope). IT WAS GLORIOUS.

we have since moved to a new city and I haven't found replacement help like that (YET).

New baby coming soon so my backup plan is to have it as part of the nanny's job description.

How about care.com?? Hire a family helper to come twice a week for a few hours at a time?

My nanny washes and folds the laundry fir my three kids. It is wonderful and it is part of the job responsibilities. My husband and I each do own laundry and fold. This works well for me. If my nanny did not fold the kids laundry, they’d probably be in wrinkled clothes except on special occasions.

I do laundry on days that I work from home and fold while I’m on conference calls. HOWEVER, I know a lot of people like wash club if that’s available where you are. http://www.washclubnyc.com/

Hi super mamas! I desperately need advice on toddler sleep training! Our daughter was sleep trained when at 7 months and she’s been the best sleeper ever. Now she’s 2.5 YO and starting to not want to sleep until I stays in her room until she falls asleep and she also wakes up 1-2 times at night crying asks for mama and walks out of the bed until I come in and put her down- by sitting next to her bed. If I don’t go in, she would sit on the floor outside of her bed for hours without sleeping!
