I just read Mark's article on deloading. I do lots of walking while carrying my 9 month old. I swim. I also do yoga daily. Do you think these require a deload? Or can I just keep going? Thank you in advance for your thoughts
Unless you are doing some hardcore yoga or swimming, I think you are probably fine continuing.

a combination of all these things is intense enough for me and is what i can do since i am the only one with my baby 96% of the time. thank you for your responses
You could do some baby squats. Squat holding your baby. You could do some baby bench presses. The baby would probably think it was great fun. Otherwise, your exercises are great ones for general health and you need not worry at all if they are too much.

I think you are probably fine continuing.
deloads are for people who are squating and deadlifting every week. You are fine.
