Haven't really changed anything, actually. Kind of surprising, I guess, lol.

What we do works for us though, so until it doesn't, I don't see that changing.

Older kids? Hell, I remember watching it when I was little... LOL!

I find it hard to believe that parents never changed anything from one kid to the next. Normally people grow and gain knowledge and make mistakes they don't make again.

I can honestly say there isn't a whole lot I have actually planned. I just do what works best, and what I feel is best based on what I do know. Which hasn't really been different between kids.
Barring dd2's health issues of course, which pretty much dictated some things for me(well, her), it wasn't a choice I would have made otherwise. And it didn't dictate what I did with ds after her, either.
On most things though, I've done pretty much the same with all three. Just no need to change what's worked so far.
If it didn't work I would have changed it, though.

Another thing I would change would be the thinking that my kid needs to be in clothes from Nordstroms and that he needs a million toys.

Which clothes does he wear the most? The ones from Target. They are the most comfy. Also, what is his fav toy? For inside, anything to draw with. For outside, dirt, a pot of water, a bowl, and a measuring cup. I can guarantee you I could put a play set of pots n pans out there for him and he would prefer the real one.

Not care what other people think of my parenting

Vaccination

Sposies (I did for awhile with ds1)

Be more firm when people tell me I have to let them CIO, or be more helicopter, or whatever that is different then what I do

I've also learned to accept help from other people. At first I would get really offended, but now? Take them! lol.

The thought of babies crying without comfort from their parents makes me sad, what can I say?
