Itzbeen Pocket Nanny Review/Giveaway

>> Thursday, July 28, 2011

You've just had your baby. You're in the middle of recovery, trying to figure out how breastfeeding is supposed to be "natural", you haven't slept for more than 45 minute increments here and there, and get emotional over everything. Not to mention post-partum blues and anxiety have left you feeling a little "out-of-it". If you're like me, you're not in the greatest condition to start needing to remember when you fed baby last, was it the left side or the right side? How long has he been awake- is it nap time yet? Oh, and when was he changed last? Not to mention if you're giving baby medicine, or YOU medicine....when was the last dose? Way too many things for my fried brain to remember. That's where the ITZBEEN Pocket Nanny comes in. I so wish I had known about this with my first two! ITZBEEN™ Pocket Nanny was developed by a new mom and dad who found themselves sleep-deprived and needing help to remember baby care details, such as when their baby last ate or napped. So, they created the ITZBEEN™: a multi-purpose nursery tool that helps new parents remember the basic details of baby care.
It has four timers that help you keep track of diaper changes, feedings, sleep or wake time, and anything else you may need to keep track of-all with the touch of a button. You can set any or all of the four timers on an alarm, which is one of my favorite parts! So for example, if you have a newborn and plan to feed him every 2-3 hours, you can set the feeding timer to go off after 2.5 hours. It also has a soft glow night light and a backlight display, which helps out during all of those late nights. One of my other favorite features is the nursing reminder to help you remember which side you nursed from last. The ITZBEEN Pocket Nanny is also great for sharing responsibilities with Daddy, baby-sitters, or Grandma. It quickly gives them a run-down of what happened when, and you can customize alarms to let them know when things need to be done. I absolutely love the Pocket Nanny; it makes life as a new mom so much easier! It would be a perfect baby shower gift as well! You can purchase it at http://www.shop.itzbeen.com/ for $24.99. It is also available in most major stores.

I love that there's an alarm for each option. So nice! This would be so helpful for sleep deprived parents.

I like the nursing r/l reminder and the light! angiew901@msn(dot)com

I like the one-touch buttons. We all know mom's need more than two hands but usually only end up with one left.

Jacob and Angelika July 28, 2011 at 7:23 AM  

I like that is shows the history of when things were done. My husband would always come ask and i couldn't remember ANY of it.

I think the nursing side slide is awesome. I always had a hard time remembering that in the middle of the night.

Jenn July 28, 2011 at 8:58 AM  

I am all about having it remember which side I nursed on last. I can't remember!

K July 28, 2011 at 9:30 AM  

The history function is my favorite. I can bring it with me to the pediatrician or my husband and keep them in the loop

I love that it keeps track of everything for you in one easy place! I am terrible at remembering what happened last. With a new baby, there are SO many new things to remember!

I'm a fan of the "other" timer for anything you want it to be such as medication or even the oven!

I haven't ever seen this before and I must say I love the one-touch timers, specifically for feeding.

The nursing reminder feature is such a good idea! When my son was a newborn I always had trouble remembering which side he nursed from last!
