Tales From A Southern Mom had the pleasure of reviewing the Itzbeen Pocket Nanny. There are some things that you think you just won’t need when you have a baby and there are others that you know you are going to need, like diapers for instance. I feel about the same way about the Itzbeen Pocket Nanny. This thing is so cool. It keeps track of everything your babe is doing throughout the day, even gives you a reminder of which breast you last fed from all you have to do is slide the switch from L to R. One of the things that I always have a problem with is figuring out what is going on with the baby, and I’m frazzled, and they are crying and it’s just an exhausting thing, with this, I can check when all of the essentials have been done last and what to try first.
This was especially helpful in our household as we have two babies and six adults, and we are always asking the question, “When did she eat last”? now we just hand off the Itzbeen Pocket Nanny. Invaluable.
We also used the Itzbeen to tell when we last gave antibiotics during an ear infection, loved that we did not have to write each dosage down and keep it on the fridge and potentially lose that information.
I know that they main purpose and use of this is simply for the sleep deprived parent who just needs a little helper around, but let me tell you another reason this came in so handy for us. My daughter has severe ADHD, during pregnancy and nursing she cannot use the medications that help her focus, but still needs a little help, this is it! She can look at this and be able to tell when she last fed the baby, when she changed the diaper, what is going on next and not have to question herself.
The Itzbeen has a retail value of 24.99 but I think it can be priceless when taking care of kids, it brings things together in a way that new parents today are used to using, the size of an average cell phone and much simpler to operate it is the best product for this use. The Itzbeen Pocket Nanny comes with a handy clip that you can clip on your diaper bag, your purse or on your waistband. It comes in three colors so even if you have triplets, you can have one for each and still keep on track.
You can win your own as Itzbeen Pocket Nanny is giving one away to one lucky reader or you can go and get your own and a few for gifts at a nearby retailer. I think you will really enjoy the little bit of peace of mind it can give you.

I would love to give this to my friend who is expecting! I’m sure she could use it to track feedings, etc.
