Yes, parenthood changes everything. But parenthood also changes with each baby. Here are 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 pore 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 finger points. 

Preparing for the Birth 
1st baby: You practice your breathing religiously. 

2nd baby: You don't bother practicing because you remember that last time, breathing didn't do a thing. 

3rd baby: You ask for an epidural in your 8th month. 

The Layette 
1st baby: You pre-wash your newborn's clothes, color-coordinate them, and fold them neatly in the baby's little bureau. 

2nd baby: You check to make sure that the clothes are clean and discard only the ones with the darkest stains. 

3rd baby: Boys can wear pink, can't they? 

Worries 
1st baby: At the first sign of distress - a whimper, a frown - you pick up the baby. 

2nd baby: You pick the baby up when her wails threaten to wake your firstborn. 

3rd baby: You teach your 3-year-old how to rewind the mechanical swing. 

Activities 
1st baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics, Baby Swing, and Baby Story Hour. 

2nd baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics. 

3rd baby: You take your infant to the supermarket and the dry cleaner. 

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.
