I'm a first time Mom and our DS, Liam, was born on Aug 6. I had NO idea how much becoming a parent would change our whole world. People try to warn you and give you advice but you truly have no clue until you have your first LO. My hubby and I are pretty OCD and it doesn't help matters that my DH is a firefighter/paramedic. When we were still in the hospital with Liam, the staff did a GREAT job at making us over worry about SIDS. Now that LO has been home with us for nearly 2 months now, my hubby and I are still OVERLY paranoid about Liam, especially at night. We take turns sleeping in shifts so at some point, one of us is always up to watch over him. It's pretty nuts. I knew I was going to be a pretty paranoid mom but I never knew I'd sit there and keep checking my son over and over again just to make sure he's still breathing. Does anyone else do this and if you do, does it get better?! Our parents keep telling us that it's normal to be worried but we need to really try to enjoy him rather than stress ourselves out so much. How on earth do I stop myself from obsessing over SIDS?!
