A Helping Hand For New Parents
Developed by a new mom and dad who found themselves needing a helping hand, this timer picks up where charts or journals leave off. It keeps track of when baby last napped or ate or had a diaper change, so new parents don’t have to rely on their memories. Featuring four timers that count up with a touch of a button, including a miscellaneous timer for medications, and a host of other helpful features, this multi-purpose nursery tool helps parents meet all of baby’s basic needs.

User-Friendly Design
Winner of the 2007 iParenting Media Award, the Baby Care Timer is easy to use thanks to the clear and concise instructions. In addition, the soft glow nightlight helps parents find their way around the baby’s room at night without waking baby up. This is also an ideal low-level light for nursing moms to use during night feedings. For added convenience, if the light is left on, it will automatically turn off after seven minutes.

The Baby Care Timer measures 2.25×3.75×1.375 inches (WxHxD) and takes three “AAA” batteries (not included).

    There are not a lot of items you need on Day 1, but you need this When I suggested to my wife that we needed this item on our baby registry, she thought I was just feeding my gadget habit, baby-style. Having been a night nurse for newborn twins and triplets for years, she thought she would never need this item. Well, this item arrived on the second day after we got home from the hospital – and my wife wishes that she had it on the first.You see, one of the skills that really suffers with sleep deprivation is math. If you can even mentally keep track of the times or write them down, doing the “hours” math on when our baby last fed, when she had her diaper changed, etc. is really not as easy as it sounds when you’ve had no more than about 45 minutes of continuous sleep for four days. So this does it for you – four timers with little icons and a left/right slider for breastfeeding (which is also a tough thing to remember, but something you really don’t want to forget). It is exceedingly simple – press the icon button and it restarts the timer – perfect for the sleep-deprived mind.As for the suggestions by some reviewers that this timer needs additional features, such as feeding totals and quantity subtotals, I disagree. I think that additional features would likely take away from the simplicity of the device – making it more complicated to operate on limited brainpower and thus less likely to be used. Those with more complex needs might consider a PDA with a spreadsheet or specially designed program.It’s not often I get to hear that I was right and my wife was wrong (we’re usually on the same page). This was one of those times.

    Must have – they should issue these in hospitals when you give birth This timer system is beyond helpful – it becomes your BRAIN when you have a newborn, as the hours, feedings and diaper changes become a total blur during this amazing yet totally sleep deprived time of your life. While it would be nice to have a few more features like total ounces drank, whether the diaper was a wet one or a doodie, and tracking of daily totals for everything – that’d be more of a infantcare PDA, and is a bit beyond the scope of this little device. All it aims to be is a timer that will keep track of the key stats in your baby’s life, consequently making your life way easier. I wake up in middle of the night and the baby is grunting, for example. I click the backlight button and see that in fact the baby has only been asleep for an hour, and had a diaper and bottle right before that. Then I just go back to sleep. On the other hand, he beguns grunting and making noises and I see the Itzbeen says it’s been 2 hours 30 minutes since his last bottle or diaper, and I know it’s time to get up and feed him.It’s also great for team caregiving, as my husband can hand me the Itzbeen after doing his morning shift, and I automatically know when the last change and bottle were. We use the wildcard button to track bottle expirations too.Thumbs up for the developers of this cool gadget – I hope to see an “Itzbeen II” w/ some advanced features in time for my next baby – although keeping it simple does help keep it easy and quick to use, especially in the fog of a 1am, 3am, and 5am feeding schedule! (my son never got the memo that full term babies are only supposed to eat every 3 or 4 hours 🙂

    Helpful gadget Having twins we always had to write down everything, or we wouldn’t remember whom we feed, when we feed them, or any details. We used to keep a chart, but then I received the Itzbeen as a gift. It is so much faster to press a button then to write everything down. When we go out I just toss it in my purse and when the babies start crying I can just pull out the itzbeen look at the timers and figure out if it is time to eat or they are just being fussy. If the boys do eat or require a diaper change, I can record it easily. no more carrying around a clipboard!I didn’t give it 5 stars because it would be even better if it could track how many oz of formula the babies eat and if it could total the number of hours the baby slept.But still it is a nice tool for forgetful people. I’m buying a 2nd one, so I have one for each of my twins.
