Pampers' new product ‘Lumi’ is a smart sensor which alerts parents when a nappy needs changing, in an effort to ‘reinvent’ baby care.
By using the Lumi by Pampers app, parents will be able to track their baby’s everyday activity including when it has wet its nappy, the duration of sleep, and feeding routine (opens in new tab).
The new product comes with two packs of nappies, two reusable activity sensors, and a WiFi-connected video monitor.
These nappies have been specially designed with adhesive patches on the front, allowing parents to easily attach and remove the sensor. So they’re different to typical packs you’d pick up in stores.
The nappies go up to size four, which would be used for babies weighing seven to 18 kilograms.
The monitor has night vision capabilities, and allows parents to rack the temperature of their baby’s bedroom and the humidity of the air. It’s a wide angle that gives a good view of the room, too.

As well as being useful for parents, the Lumi by Pampers app displays data on a daily and weekly basis, which can be shared with a paediatrician to help them better understand a baby’s health and habits during any check ups.
It’s currently unknown how much the new product will retail for, but it's expected to be released later this year.
Lumi by Pampers is an innovative product for parents, but the main setback is that it's only able to determine when a nappy is wet, and not when a baby has defecated. As a result, it’s still important to check on your baby regularly!
If you're interested, Pampers have a waiting list which you can sign up for here (opens in new tab).
