Pampers Joins Huggies in Selling “Smart” Diapers Despite Health Warnings, Privacy and Security Issues

Activist Post reported about Huggies’ “Smart Diapers” in May. Now Proctor & Gamble has announced they will start selling their own “Smart” diapers in the fall. Unlike the Huggies line, their diapers will only track pee (not poo) but they will also track babies’ sleep patterns.

The Lumi by Pampers line, which Pampers says has a waitlist ahead of its US launch this fall, includes an activity sensor that secures to a “landing” on the front of a baby’s diaper. It comes with a baby monitor and a 10-day supply of diapers. The sensor works with a corresponding app to log the kid’s pee and identify patterns. Additional packs of Lumi by Pamper diapers will be sold separately. Pricing has not been finalized.

Parents using the Lumi diapers will in theory not have to worry about checking any of that because they’ll get smartphone alerts. The app will display one of three diaper statuses: dry, wet, very wet.
