I just use whatever towel is clean and actually in the bathroom (not in the hamper waiting to be folded).
Other things I do differently now vs. the first one or two:
1 - I used my Boppy religiously up until I had this one. Now I'm too lazy to try to find it in whatever room it was last left. Plus my kids keep stealing it to use for various toys around the house.
2 - I used to buy special baby shampoos and stuff. Now I just use whatever is in the shower (it's always all natural anyways).
3 - I used to dress my babies up every day in cute clothes and now I just keep her in a sleeper because it's easier to change diapers in.
4 - With the first baby I always made sure whatever surface he was on was clean. I always put a blanket down on the floor for him to play on. Now I just brush crumbs out of the way and make sure there aren't any chokables in the way before I throw the baby down on the floor.
I'm sure there are more, but that's all I can think of now.
(wow... it took me two days to realize I put a family of 3 instead of 5.)
When I look back to my first baby, I laugh. I was COMPLETELY by the book and very anxious!
Haha, baby towels are something that I totally tell people not to buy. I started using regular towels with DS1 really early becuase the baby towels I had were annoying (too thin). With DS2, I never used them!
Hmm...need to think about what I might be doing differently this time around.
