Wow! DD has just started crawling and I had no idea how dirty my floors were! We have vinyl flooring throughout the mudroom/office, kitchen and dining room, which is where we spend 80% of our time. The house and floor are quite old. I've been washing the floors more frequently (I won't tell you how often I washed them before dd started crawling), but still, her sleepers and clothes are gross with dirt after she's been crawling around all day.<br><br>
I'm wondering if there's dirt built up in the floor wax? Anyone else have this problem? How often do you wash your floors?<br><br>
I guess it's to be expected if the babe is crawling where we are walking in/out with our shoes. I go barefoot in the house, but DH has to wear his shoes because of feet problems. I think I'll get him to start wearing indoor shoes.<br><br>
Still, what I really want to hear is that your babe gets dirty crawling around on the floor all day<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I guess it's time to institute nightly baths.

I was able to keep the floor in the front room mostly clean and I often had a baby gate across the kitchen door. I also focused more on washing her hands frequently than any other measure... though we did change onesies frequently for a while there. Remember.. crawling isn't that long a phase. DO your best but don't make yourself crazy over this!
