Itzbeen baby timer

For many looking at baby products, the Itzbeen baby timer may seem overpriced or over-hyped.  I expect that there are apps available for your phone that will do essentially the same thing as this device.  Even so, we have found it to be a very useful, if not indispensable, tool.

The Itzbeen functions differently than I had originally thought.  I thought that it was designed to function as a count-down timer for various activities such as feeding, changing, sleeping and a fourth activity, intended to keep the baby on a schedule.  In fact, the timers count up, giving you information as to how long it has been since those tasks were performed.  We don’t keep our kid on a schedule, so the way that it functions is actually better for us.

If you are expecting, you are probably thinking “come on, how hard is it to remember how long ago you changed the kid?”  Well, it feels like you are changing the kid every 15 minutes — and sometimes you are.  But during feeding and changes in the middle of the night, or when you inadvertently take a nap in the middle of the day, having a timer running is useful.

The device has a couple of extra features that are nice.  One is an led nightlight, which can be used to check the baby or to find your way in the dark.  The device does have a second back light to view the buttons and timers in the dark.  It also has a ‘switch’ which doesn’t do anything electronically, but is used as a reminder of which which breast was nursed last.  It also has a key lockout, which allows the back light and night light to function, but prevents the timers from being reset.  There is also a belt clip for portability.

It took us a while to figure out how to set the clock.  Here’s how.  Hold down the back light button and press the * to set the hours and the ZZZ to set the minutes.

The design for this device is well thought out and executed.  It is easy to use and the buttons are well spaced when fumbling in the dark.  The back light is, if anything, too bright in dazzling blue and red.  The night light won’t illuminate a room, but it is excellent for quick tasks.  If you want, or need, a timer to keep track of baby tasks, this is a great choice!
