This backpack is perfect for daycare/preschool. We use the large version, which is too big for Jacob to carry himself, but allows us to send sheets and a blanket, extra clothes, a water bottle and his lunch and snacks all in one easy-to-carry bag. I've also put the bag, along with the matching lunch bag, through the washing machine several times with no issues. And it's customizable with color options, monogram and patches.
I've found that Jacob is far more likely to eat his lunch if I give him a little bit of everything to keep it interesting for him. These bento boxes are perfect for portions and make it fun for him.
Stainless steel water bottles are great because they don't crack after being constantly dropped and thrown throughout the day. I like that his one has a cap, compared to Jacobs hydroflask where the nozzle is somewhat exposed.
Packing cubes are a serious game-changer. I use them for myself and plan to start using them for Jacob to make sure I'm not forgetting anything when packing for trips or sending him to his grandparents overnight.
Jacob got this rocker as a Christmas gift from my parents and absolutely LOVES it. It doesn't hurt that it's absolutely adorable bedroom decor too.
I've been eyeing these chairs for years but have yet to purchase one. It's nice to have a designated spot for toddlers to sit without needing help.
