Gone are the days of sniffing your baby’s backside to figure out whether or not they need a nappy change, as Pampers have launched their new ‘smart nappy’.
These new high-tech nappies have an activity sensor attached to them, which alerts you when they’ve soiled or wet their nappy.
And that’s not all!
The device also tracks their sleep schedule. Impressive…
Pampers launches a new ‘smart nappy’
The Lumi Baby Care System was co-developed by paediatricians, and can be used on babies from birth to 12 months of age.
It contains an activity sensor, a video monitor and up to 10 days of nappies, to keep the sensor securely attached.
“Figuring out your baby’s needs can be tricky,” says Omer Sher, Head of the Pampers team that founded the product.
“When developing Lumi we focused on solving real problems parents have. Lumi lets you see and know how your baby is doing right now at a glance, anticipate their needs and build your rhythm as a family.
“Parenting is the most important job you’ve never done, and it was clear there was an opportunity to enable parents to better anticipate their baby’s needs.
“Lumi solves this by helping parents blend real tracking data with their own intuition in a frictionless way as they find their rhythm as a family.”
Some experts aren’t in favour of the new ‘smart nappy’
However, not everyone is so keen on the idea of using a ‘smart nappy’.
Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, president of the International Society for Infant Studies, told CNN: “The more we have analytics on babies, the more we worry that it actually matters we’ve calculated this.
“That creates a frenetic feeling when you’re a parent.”
What’s more, she believes this new device could also make babies less self-reliant and hinder the way they learn to communicate.
“We see this a lot with potty training — kids needs to learn how to control and recognise what’s happening to their body,” she added.
“We don’t want our kids to grow up without knowing how to do this. Babies have a right to cry and let us know what’s going on.”
There’s no word yet on they will be available in Australia.
