Bottles r more urgent so just wash up immediately after use. You can ask hubby to help with washing baby clothes n cleaning e house. House just clean once a wk ok , dont need to stress yrself to clean every day. Bathe when baby's asleep in e cot, away from your dog.
I have a dog too at home. think dog sure a bit neglected . ask hubby to bring him down for his regular walks at least.
For me, when hubby home, he will put clothes to wash, sterilize bottles, have dinner(either i cook when baby sleeping or ta bao) while i clean up baby, then hubby change and look after baby. Then I go things that i need to do.
mopping of floors and changing bedsheets done weekly by hubby. other than that, not much housework ley.
easy... slowly you learn to cope and come up with a routine.
invested in a sterilizer ... steam kind... bottle teat all seperate throw on top... then the timer will TINK itself... can sleep... no need check the switches
you yourself also mummy.
you also superB
Think you can hire a confinement lady she can help you do the washing as well as bath the baby and help to cook meals for you and husband...
If your husband dont't mind he can help wash the for you the clothings... But think its better you get disposable panties cos you might stain on the panty and I dont't think your husband would wash it for you unless he is willing to do for you.
Just enjoy motherhood dont't stress yourself
With the clothes depends what your preference is. Although I have a dryer I dont't use it too much, but usually do one wash every morning whilst making breakfast so it's ready for hanging after I wash the dishes. We all have enough clothes so there's no rush to get everything washed every day.
If the baby was not asleep I would usually put the baby in a bouncer and have them in the bathroom with me. Washing becomes a very quick event.
But remember you'll have a newborn and what you'll be able to get done and how much sleep you have will be determined by the baby. Try not to get too worked up about being what you think should be the perfect mother/wife.

Try fixing a schedule for baby. Now able to know when roughly need feeds, when sleep. But sometimes not very perfect, still anytime wakes up. Guess need more training.
