Precious Firstborn Syndrome. Totally a thing. Like should have a support group with coloured ribbons or something.
If you have had a child, you have experienced at least a smidgeon of this syndrome.
I swear a girl I know may as well have been the founding partner of the syndrome. No shit, she used to sterilise her baby’s toys after every use. Gawd, I was lucky to shower once a day and somehow she managed to sterilise a zebra chew toy 4 times a day. Plus one time she rang maternity to ask if there was a particular sanitiser to use on her nipples before allowing her bambini to suckle..
Anyway, this article by Shauna Anderson ‘Precious Firstborn Syndrome‘ is an absolute riot.
Grab a coffee, read this and immediately feel better about yourself and your own parenting style.
