I knew having a newborn means having more laundry to do but I was told that the load would lessen as he grows up.
Well? Liam is almost 7 months old now and you know what?
It’s all lies. Lies. All lies!!
In fact, my laundry load has gotten bigger since he started solid food.
We are doing this thing called “Baby Led Weaning” or BLW which basically means he gets to feed himself. Sounds messy? Yes, it’s REALLY REALLY MESSY.
Food everywhere, on his clothes, on his chair, on his bib (twice a day omg) and on the floor.
The only consolation I get is his cute face and my LG washer/dryer.
Yes, our washer/dryer. Heaven sent!
It’s so intelligent that when the start button is pressed, the machine would identify the load and work to optimise water level and cycle time according to the size and type of load as well as water temperature.
This is great for me because it prevents my new paranoid mommy brains from selecting spin speeds that are too fast or water temperatures that are too high, which could result in damage to our clothes, especially the delicate baby clothings.
I bet there are many of Liam’s clothes that our washer/dryer has rescued from my hands.
The “Time Delay” function is so important nowadays as I could just chuck all the stuff that needs washing into the belly of the machine and then set for laundry to be done during Liam’s naptime so I can leisurely hang out the laundry while the bub plays in dreamland.
Gone are the days where the baby was so difficult that when he naps, I would rather just nap too than drive out to collect our laundry from the dobi haha.
From my 6’5″ frame husband’s enormous clothes to my 66 centimeters baby’s tiny clothings to our towels, bedsheets, curtains, shoes and soft toys, we have put them to the test in the LG Washer/Dryer.
Even Liam approves!
