 I was just wondering if the number of dependents makes a difference of pay. We just had our second child and I was just curious.

No. The ONLY difference that having dependants makes is in the BAH, and there is a rate for having dependants and that rate doesn't change if he/she has 1 dependant or 20.

Nope you either have dependents or you don't, the number doesn't matter.

His pay rate is based on his rank and where you are. 

The number of children have nothing to do with pay, at all.

I don't think the number of kids has anything to do with dependant pay but I wouldn't quote me on this...
