I asked if I could help do the washing as I could see it piling up. I didn’t comment about it being there though. I knew prior to that that it was one thing the Mum appreciated help with. Often I called in again later and took the washing in off the line and sorted them according to each room. After a few times the Mum was willing to show me where they were put away. It saved her a lot of time to able to not have to try to rush so much and on occasions have a rest or nap while baby was asleep. If there is older children maybe offer to take them out or even just home with you for a few hours if you can.
