Featuring Itzbeen! CLOSED


Long before I ever had the idea of the 1000 Subscribers Celebration, I wrote a personal review about this awesome product, the Itzbeen timer. As I was contacting companies for our celebration, Itzbeen was one at the top of my list because I really wanted to bless others with some great products that I personally LOVE! I was excited when they said that they would give one of my readers a timer for the celebration. I personally already owned this product so there was no need to send me a sample.

Here's the detailed image of the Itzbeen from their site...


You can read the many great features by enlarging the image or visiting their site. Basically it is a Mommy brain!!! I honestly don't know how I lived without this gadget with my first 2 kiddos. I have timed every one of Ladybug's feedings since birth (minus a few when I couldn't find the timer). She is 5 months old and I still use it for every one. I also use it to time any of the kids taking timed medication, and also have timed her naps if need be. Seriously, this thing is AWESOME.

It has a night light that I love, it has a silent blinking alarm that I used a lot when she was waking to feed at night-I could glance over and see if the red light was blinking to know if she was ready to eat or had awoken too early.

Here's my personal Itzbeen in my hand to show you it's size. You can also see that it had been 2 hours and 9 minutes since Ladybug had last nursed. I no longer have to remember times or even think about it. I just check my timer-which also has a clip so I can clip it to me if I am going to be around the house.


You can buy your own Itzbeen Baby Care Timer here at their site, on Amazon here, or at any of their retailers featured here. If you have a baby, or a baby on the way-add this to your registry or just buy it now! I used it to time my contractions before Ladybug was even born!!! I also use it to time Time-Outs for the boys if need be!

One of YOU is going to be winning one of these amazing little gadgets in honor of Ladybug! Thanks Itzbeen!

Oh, goody! I'm first!

It looks like the only place in my state of Arkansas to buy an Itzbeen is in Rogers at Baby's Room and Kids' Quarters.

Amanda said...

I'm currently pregnant...due in just three short (or not so short) weeks.

Amanda said...

She was 5 days old when you wrote the review. Right?

Since we live in the Orlando area, we could buy one at Good for the Kids. This is a great idea and a great product. Us new moms tend to get lost and have a hard time remembering everything! Thanks!

My youngest is 5 months, and with 3 other kiddos in tow, it's easy to forget when she last ate.

I have been eying this for a bit, but had heard no actual review of it--so thank you. I might even pick one up from Amazon.
We are going to be doing fostering of infants starting next month so this would be a *huge* help. I am just starting up my blog although it has only one post, but I would definitely blog about it if I received one.

Chris and Sarah said...

This thing looks great! I can get one at "A Tiny Hiney." What a cute name for a store!
