Itzbeen too long without this gadget in my life!
OK, so I've had a newborn for only a week, but really this little device has greatly improved things. The post-partum nurses successfully scared me into scrutinizing every wet and soiled diaper with its time of arrival. Thus at one point I could be found juggling baby in one hand, and dry erase board plus flashlight in the other to record nighttime activity. -What a debacle!
Now that I have the Itzbeen Baby Care Timer, things are going relatively smooth. It keeps track of how long it's been since baby was last fed, diapered, or went down for a nap. There is a night light and it even has a tab to help you remember which breast was offered last. This device fits in one hand and can be clipped to your clothes.
You can also opt to set an alarm if baby sleeps past the time his feeding is due. This is not yet a problem for us, but I would certainly welcome that sound over the buzz of my pager going off.
