Take It From Me: Baby Bash: ITZBEEN Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Baby Bash: ITZBEEN Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Having a new baby means lots of new responsibilities! As parents, we are often left feeling a little over-whelmed, over-tired, and a little less functional at times. The ITZBEEN Baby Care Timer is an innovative, multipurpose tool to help parents learn, remember, and communicate their baby’s needs.
(From their website) “The ITZBEEN timer is not about putting babies on schedules, nor is it intended to relieve parents of their duty and responsibilities in assessing the needs of their baby. On the contrary, the goal was to develop a tool that would help first-time moms and dads become better parents, and to make the job of being a new parent a little easier.”
When you have a new baby, there are so many things to remember and keep track of- when did I feed them last, how long ago did I last change their diaper, which side did I feed from, and how long did I breastfeed for? With so much going on, it can be very hard to remember all of the different things. The ITZBEEN was designed to help ease these new baby/new parent challenges.

The three primary benefits of the ITZBEEN are:
- LEARNING: the ITZBEEN is a good learning tool to remind parents about the basics of baby-care. When a parent is tired, a quick glance at the ITZBEEN may help them figure out why a baby is crying; perhaps the baby has been awake too long, or has gone too long without being fed.
Something that I also like is the soft-glow nightlight and the display backlight that allows you to read everything in the dark. In the middle of the night when you hear the baby cry, seeing the times can help you determine why your baby might be crying.

- REMEMBERING: sleep deprivation and busy schedules make it difficult for parent to remember who did what and when. The ITZBEEN simply acts as a digital notepad to help parents remember how long ago they did something. (Hence the name, pronounced ‘it’s been’… as in it’s been three hours since the baby was fed) Having good information helps new parents make better decisions for their babies.
I like the timer alarms option, which allows you to set a reminder alarm for each of the timers. This way, if the time limit is reached, the button will light up and an alarm will briefly sound. You can then better determine what your baby might need. Very helpful for first time parents learning the ropes of things and great for busy moms needing some extra reminding!

- COMMUNICATING BETWEEN CAREGIVERS: In today’s society, it is not just mom taking care of the baby; dads are involved now more than ever. Parental instinct is vital in caring for a baby, but that instinct relies on knowing what recent care the baby has received. The ITZBEEN is a convenient way for all caregivers involved to communicate and share basic baby-care information.
I can remember several times where my husband, babysitter, etc. had asked me information, which I could not remember. “The baby seems fussy. When was their last feeding?” Having this knowledge quickly on hand and in one place makes things a lot easier!

  5. This would be great because as a single working Mom who's daughter trades off between my sister and mom everyday it's hard for us to keep her on a schedule or remember the last time someon fed her.
