Waiting for Baby Event... ITZBEEN Review and Giveaway

As most parents can tell you, newborn babies make you sleep deprived. You stumble around, sometimes finding time to shower and sometimes forgetting where your shower is! Yet you're supposed to keep track to make sure that baby is being fed and changed often enough and to make sure they're getting enough sleep. Baby's on meds? I'd have to write the time I gave her medicine on my hand otherwise I'd lose the list.
Greg Sheldon, a stay-at-home dad, has come to the rescue of all of us! He created the ITZBEEN timer, a handy, easy to use gadget that keeps track of how long it's been since the last diaper change, feeding, asleep/awake, plus a fourth timer you can use for whatever you want. Plus these timers also have an optional alarm that will beep and light up as a reminder.

The ITZBEEN (pronounced "it's been") also has a small nightlight to help you maneuver without crashing into things and a backlit display to help read it at night. It has a clip on the back to attach it to the diaper bag (or your pants) and a nursing reminder switch so you know which side baby nursed from last.The big thing to note about ITZBEEN is that it is not made to put your baby on a schedule! It's help you remember and to help you figure out why baby's upset (maybe she needs a nap!)

Not only will the ITZBEEN be perfect for those first few weeks (or months) of craziness, but it helps a bunch when you have more than one caregiver! When Bok Boy was a baby, hubby was a student and I worked. Many times I'd run in the door literally as he was running out and I never knew when baby had last been fed or napped. I had to play it by ear every evening! This timer would've saved me a ton of headache, particularly since it's so easy to use. Nothing to write down, just a quick button push and you're done!

ITZBEEN received a 2007 JPMA Innovation Award and a 2007 iParenting Media Award for Best Baby Care Product. It's also easily available at many stores, including Babies R Us, Target, Amazon, and many more!

Want to try one for yourself? ITZBEEN is offering one of my readers an ITZBEEN timer all their own!

  1. I follow on GFC (Farrah) and I am having twins in October. I think the timer functions (sleep/feed/diaper) will be invaluable for me the first few weeks when I am trying to keep it all straight. If I win, I'll get another one so I have two... Thanks!

  57. The nursing reminder to help mom remember which side baby nursed last. This would be especially helpful with my twins since some days it's hard to remember which side twins were last.

  58. there are no high heels in my shoe cabinet. I urge tory burch outlet to own one pair of beautiful shoes to fulfill my heart.Ads by GoogleShoe shopping Cheap Hogan Shoes makes a lot of girls tired but they Moncler Jackets never stop to have a rest. I always go window shopping to find what kind of shoes I like then I will shop online. Those true stores will sell shoes at a high price because their real cost is more than online shops Moncler Jackets
