Yes, parenthood changes everything. But parenthood also changes with
each baby. Here, some of the ways having a second and third child
differs from having your first:

Your Clothes
-1st baby: You begin wearing maternity clothes as soon as your OB/GYN
confirms your pregnancy.
-2nd baby: You wear your regular clothes for as long as possible.
-3rd baby: Your maternity clothes ARE your regular clothes.

The Baby's Name
-1st baby: You pour over baby-name books and practice pronouncing and
writing combinations of all your favorites.
-2nd baby: Someone has to name his or her kid after your great-aunt
Mavis, right? It might as well be you.
-3rd baby: You open a name book, close your eyes, and see where your

-2nd baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics.
-3rd baby: You take your infant to the supermarket and the dry

Going Out
-1st baby: The first time you leave your baby with a sitter, you call
home 5 times.
-2nd baby: Just before you walk out the door, you remember to leave a
number where you can be reached.
-3rd baby: You leave instructions for the sitter to call only if she
sees blood.

At Home
-1st baby: You spend a good bit of every day just gazing at the baby.
-2nd baby: You spend a bit of every day watching to be sure your older
