So, DS is very scared of the vacuum...(will even wake up crying if I try and do it while he sleeps..) but I really need to vacuum more often, especially around his highchair... I was thinking of getting a handheld or 2 in 1 stick for the quick jobs, possibly a wet and dry version.
Does anyone have one, does it help keep the carpet clean? Any recommendations on what to get? I don't want to spend more than $100. I've seen a few on ebay from Hong Kong but I'm a bit dubious about buying a cheap one which breaks after a month and I have to then get another.
Thanks for any replies.

Handheld vacuum? Anyone got one worth recommending?

I have a Volta rechargable one that has the stick and the hand held bit. Similar to this one but older. http://www.godfreys.com.au/volta-mul...-in-1-stickvac
It can't do wet but it's just a cheapie that we have had since our twins were little and it's still going fine. I use it for quick clean ups in between proper vaccuming. It does the job ok (as long as I remember to cut off all my hair from the brush bit that gets caught after falling out and being vaccumed) but I have a better normal vaccum that has more power that I will do once a week as well.
I originally got the the little one because one of my twins used to freak out over the normal vaccum. She's 8.5yrs and will STILL freak when I pull it out. I think her ears are extra sensitive and the noise of it upsets her. She is fine with the little one though.

I have a wet and dry handheld one. It'a absolutely useless. I wouldn't recommend getting one at all.
