I’ve found it’s easier for my kids to stay on task and be respectful if they know what their job is throughout the day. I start our day by explaining everyone’s jobs.

So what to choose for a 2-year-old baby boy’s Christmas gift? Pacific Baby insulated bottles are practical baby boy gift ideas. My 2-year-old loves drinking his milk and juice by himself. He also tries to take the tops off his bottles and cups — he mastered unscrewing his milk bottle in his crib at 10 months old. Pacific Baby GroGrow Steel Baby Bottles have a wide variety of features that make them a great drinking container for all little kids who are always on the go.
