Earlier last week, we mentioned how Katie Holmes efforts to sanitize an entire playground for her kid seemed a bit odd — but potentially normal for a first-time parent. Some readers also pointed out that the information was garnered from the National Inquirer; not necessarily known as a bastion of truth.

Today, we have similar news from, once more, the National Inquirer. Apparently, new mom Nicole Richie is so paranoid about germs that she washes everything twice to protect six -month old Harlow.

A source said: “Nicole double washes her daughter Harlow’s clothes and double sanitises her bottles, baby spoons – anything Harlow eats out of. “Even the cleaning supplies in the house have to be organic and non-toxic.” Fiance Joel Madden is reportedly concerned Nicole has become obsessed with keeping their home spotlessly clean.

Thoughts? Can you relate or is this taking things a little too far? If she must sanitize, at least she’s going about it using organic, non-toxic products. But is all of this too much of a good thing?

    Germs are a natural part of life. Lots of babies are exposed to them. As long as she isn’t taking her to the dumb or around medical waste, Harlow is good. Babies need to be around germs to build up their immune system. I’m not saying bring her around sick people all the time but I think Nicole needs to relax a bit before she does more harm than good.
