The Itzbeen timer is really a sanity saver, especially when you are a brand new Mom. I don’t know about you, but there were many times when I would wake up in the middle of the night and have absolutely no idea for how long I had been sleeping. Or I’d doze off in the rocking chair, not realizing that my tiny cat nap had slowly turned into 3 hours!
The Itzbeen keeps a running timer of how long it has been since you last fed baby and changed her diaper. This has been so incredibly helpful for me; I never have to worry that I’ve gone too long without feeding or changing her. There is also a nap timer, which we sometimes use, and a miscellaneous timer that can be used for medication or something else. It also has a clock and backlight.
There are iPhone apps that have similar functionality, but we opted for the Itzbeen instead because I can actually hand the timer to my husband, or to the Nanny, and they can take it from where I left off. I couldn’t really hand my iPhone over to them.
My semi-forgetful husband says that it gives him peace of mind. We are still using it every day, even now that our daughter is 8 months old. It has become my #1 gift at baby showers!
