Letting moms know it’s time for a diaper change

Busy moms are always on the go and occupied with multiple responsibilities and activities. Diaper changes are events in the day that she wishes could be easier and work around her schedule. Every day, moms ask for better working, longer lasting disposable diapers that allow her to have more time for herself and time to spend with baby. However, the diaper still needs to be changed when full of urine or when the baby has “gone number two” to avoid harming the baby’s skin and to prevent leakage.

Because of this need, moms are looking for ways to know when to change the diaper without relying on a nasty smell, discoloration, or bulking and sagging in the crotch area. Ideally, moms want to know this information without having to remove baby’s clothes.
