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.
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 2.25x3.75x1.375 inches (WxHxD) and takes three "AAA" batteries (not included).

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.
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 :)
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.
-The four seperate timers are great. We managed to track our daughter's feedings, my breast pumping, her sleep cycles, and other miscellaneous events all at once. The option of being able to set an alarm (silent with flashing light or beeping with flashing light) for each of the timers was an extra bonus.
-The nightlight feature is fantastic. Even now when we're not using the timers that often I use the nightlight several times a night to check on our daughter without turning the lights on or disturbing my sleeping husband. When we were using the timers the seperate backlight feature was also critical since we could check the display without making it too bright.
-It's small and fits in the palm of your hand or clips onto your clothing.Read more ›
