I am still in denial that baby girl is going to be here next week! I am so looking forward to not being pregnant ever again! Reality is starting to set in, however, because I haven’t been getting much sleep lately. The lack of sleep for the first few months is something that I am not looking forward to. I am fortunate to be off from school for the summer, but still I do have a three year old that still needs taking care of in addition to my newborn. I am going to be sleep deprived!
I remember the sleep deprivation with TJ. Trying to remember when the last time I fed him or changed his diaper became a chore, especially if I forgot to write it down. I knew there had to be a better way. I first saw the ITZBEEN baby care timer in a store when TJ was about a year old and thought to myself that if I ever was pregnant again, this would be the first thing I would buy.
So… what is a pocket nanny? The ITZBEEN Baby Care Timer is a multi-purpose tool that helps you remember the basic details of baby care. ITZBEEN has four timers that count up with the touch of a button…so you will always know how long it’s been since the last diaper change or feeding or nap! You can even program the last timer for whatever you need, medication maybe.
ITZBEEN™ Baby Care Timer 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. They tried charts and journals, but thought there had to be a better way. So, they created the ITZBEEN™: a multi-purpose nursery tool that helps new parents remember the basic details of baby care. The ITZBEEN™ has four timers that count up with the touch of a button, and a host of other helpful features, all designed with the needs of a new parent in mind.
If you are a breastfeeding mom, there is even a little reminder switch letting you now what side your newborn nursed on during the last feeding. I haven’t had to use the timers yet, but I can tell you that the nightlight feature and the clock on the ITZBEEN have been a lifesaver over the past month. I often check it when I get up in the middle of the night for those frequent bathroom breaks that pregnant women have. I don’t want to wake up the hubby, so I just take my ITZBEEN with me to the restroom to find out what time it is. If it is already so helpful before the baby comes, just think at how helpful it is going to be afterwards.
The suggested retail price of the ITZBEEN Pocket Nanny is $24.99 and can be purchased at stores nationwide and at their website. It has been awarded a 2007 Juvenile Products Manufacturing Associations Innovation Award, and a 2007 iParenting Media Award for Best Baby Care Product.
