A dirty diaper app? I guess this really does prove there is an app for everything.
High tech parenting is even better with a new device from Pampers that tells you when your baby has a dirty diaper or when they need a feeding… And yes, this is a REAL thing.
Lumi by Pampers (affiliate link) is an electronic sensor that can track when your baby needs a diaper change, by sending a message right to your smartphone!
How the Dirty Diaper App Works
The Lumi system pairs the sensor with a Logitech monitor and app for your smartphone.
The app then allows parents track automatically track diapers and sleep, and log feedings, in order to help find a routine for their families and anticipate their babies’ needs.
So it is actually WAY more than just dirty diapers.
Baby Management App
Did I just use the words “baby management” together.
Yes, I did.
But it seems like this might be appropriate in this situation of high-tech baby watching from anywhere kinda world!
According to Pampers, Lumi is:
“the world’s first all-in-one connected care system that helps parents track day-to-day developments, and monitor their baby, 24/7, so they can see emerging patterns and establish a suitable routine.”
“See your baby, their sleep, feeding and diaper activity, and the room temperature and humidity at a glance. You’ll know if baby is comfortable or if they might need feeding or changing soon.”
Charting Baby Development through Apps
The Lumi app was developed in conjunction with pediatricians and also provides personalized insights on development for babies, sharing how your baby is growing each week, including the ten mental development leaps.
The entire Lumi kit features the diaper device, the monitor, and the app, along with a day supply of diapers. Diapers can be ordered in sizes NB to 4.
While the Lumi device itself is suitable up to 1 year of age, the app and monitor continue to work past that age.
I can see this being really great for parents of children with disabilities. It is a great way to inform parents if a diaper is needed to be changed but also offers lots of other benefits too.
It’s an interesting idea and I am looking forward to hearing more about it!
It’s perfect for new parents who are trying to figure out their baby’s routines. The initial kit retails for $349, but we have noticed better prices than that lately online…not sure how long that will last!
