Itzbeen Pocket Nanny: Review & Giveaway

Soon, very soon we'll be back into the world of baby-hood.  That means keeping track of feeding, sleeping, diapers, medicine and so forth.  I remember the world of baby from Monkey - it was a lot easier with just 1 baby than when I had Monkey and Crackers.. and 2 older foster sons.  There sure was a lot to keep track of for a tired, overwhelmed, recovering mama (especially with Cracker's special needs at the start).

This time around it will be different.  I only have 2 "big" boys to keep track of, not 3 - and these 2 have pretty easy schedules.  We will also have the Itzbeen Pocket Nanny to help keep track of baby's needs!  This handy little monitor is pretty easy to use.  I have to admit I was a little intimidated by it at first, but as I've practiced with it, I'm certain I will be able to keep track of Azariah's needs with confidence!

Itzbeen has a nightlight feature, so it will be easy to use, even for midnight feedings and changings!  It keeps track of how long baby has been wearing the same diaper, when he last ate, and how long he has been asleep!  There is also an "extra" button to track any other special needs (like medicine) that baby might have.

One of my favorite features (this seems silly) is that there is a clock right there on the front of the monitor.  I don't need to grab for a phone or hunt for the alarm clock to know what time it is in the middle of the night - why is it that we want to know the time whenever we get up in the night?

Another FANTASTIC feature for mamas that breastfeed (I'm planning on it), is the nursing tracker - a little switch at the bottom that helps you remember whether you last nursed on the left or right side!

Each timer can also be used as an alarm, so if I need to feed baby every 3 hours, or remind the babysitter to change him, I can set it and let my mind be at ease!

USE WITH BIG KIDS - as I mentioned, there are multiple buttons for keeping track of baby's needs.  We've been practicing with Crackers - It helps me to remember to put him on the potty regularly.  Yep, I want this little guy to use the toilet - even better is that he really wants to use it.  The Itzbeen has been a fantastic tool for helping us with this.

As I already stated, it can track medicines, this is great even with big kids that are ill or have medical conditions that require medication multiple times a day.

PRICE - I think Itzbeen is well-priced at $24.99 for one monitor or $48.99 for 2!  The freedom it gives me to remember other times and dates in my busy head is will worth the small amount of cash for the little device!

 Itzbeen has offered to give one of my lucky readers a timer of their own!  This contest is restricted to US and Canada and will end on Friday, September 30 at midnight.
