Pampers launches ‘smart nappy’ which alerts you when your baby needs changing
Smart phones, Ipads, Alexa – our world is bringing out all sorts of amazing products that we couldn’t even dream about.
A new product has been announced that has set thousands of parents tongues wagging throughout the UK.
Ok … sure changing a babies’ nappy can be a little bit challenging at first and lots of expectant parents worry “when will I know to change my babies nappy?” and when we dare ask anything as an expectant parent the response is always the same “you will just know” which isn’t the ideal response but imagine this…. Imagine it was possible for you to know instantly when your babies’ nappy needed to be changed?
Impossible…. Not anymore my friend!!!
Google’s sister company Verily has now teamed up with Pampers’ to create the ultimate ‘smart nappy’ which alerts you when your baby’s nappy is wet and needs to be changed….
Launching later this year, pampers connects the sensor on the smart nappy with the parents or carers phone and they will receive a notification when the nappy needs to be changed. What will come next? Robot nannies? Automatic night feed machines?
Sharing the news via Twitter, Pamper’ announced ““Introducing Lumi by Pampers, the world’s first all-in-one connected care system that is revolutionizing baby monitoring, developed in partnership with #Verily and @Logitech #lumibypampers”
As if that wasn’t enough, parents can also track babies feeding, wetting and sleep routines through the app.
Purchasing the New Lumi
After purchasing the Lumi, the sensor will need replacing every 3 months. This new technology aims to monitor patterns and gives parents a look into their baby’s routines as a whole. The device also provides parents with their baby’s data so they can even share this with their GP and health visitor.
