I didn't watch them until recently so don't really know all this issues they have fun. Anyone care to catch me up?
I see posts on here but don't quite follow with what's going on with him.

Missy finds out she's pregnant with a boy and has obvious and extreme gender disappointment.
Complains for the entirety of her pregnancy about morning sickness, aches, going overdue.
She follows some very bad advice from her midwives (that is easily proven to be against best practices with minimal google searches), and ends up having a long labour ending in a c-section after attempting a v-bac.
Finn came out very swollen and had to be taken for testing and observation immediately. I'm sure she believes this damaged her ability to bond.
Finn is a champion nurser, and a comfort nurser, which Missy claimed she wanted (because Ollie wasn't), but she also complains about that, because Finn couldn't be soothed by anyone but her.
Finn has never liked car rides. They complain about him screaming in the car.
They complain if he naps at inconvenient times.
They complain when he doesn't nap enough.
Ollie snatches toys from Finn without reprimand, but if Finn even looks at Ollie's toys, he gets an immediate "No, Finn, that's Ollie's".
We get a WHOLE lot of "Ollie never did...", and "Ollie was sooo much better at (blank) than Finn"
And, everything is "Ollie's". Ollie's toys, Ollie's playroom, etc
In short, classic golden child/scapegoat dynamic in the making.
