How to Set the Time on Your Itzbeen
The Itzbeen (website) is a great little electronic baby care timer that is basically like a stop watch for your baby on three fronts (plus one).
It is a handheld device that lets you keep track of how long it has been since your baby was changed, got fed, or slept. It includes a fourth option button that you can use for whatever you want. I use it for how long I’ve had that baby since my last break.
Itzbeen also includes a smaller button near the bottom that is a backlight. and a larger button near the very top that serves as a flashlight. It has a slider on the bottom, under the timers, marked L or R to help you remember which breast the baby last fed off of.
The device is very handy, but it can become tricky setting the time of day on it if you have thrown away the instructions.
So here is how to set the time on the Itzbeen:
1. Hold down the ‘backlight’ button, the small circle button under the ‘asterisk (*)’ button.
2. While holding down the ‘backlight’ button, hold down the ‘asterisk (*)’ button simultaneously to change the hours.
3. Or (while holding down backlight button), hold down the ‘zzz’ button to change the minutes.
See, wasn’t that easy enough?
