NEW ERA OF ONLINE BABY TRACKING
The sense of real-time communication between parents and babies is a key factor that has turned nurseries into connected data centres.
The new millennial parents are adopting the ‘smart’ technology, not only to help them feel as connected to their babies as possible but also to provide reassurance and peace of mind.
With advanced digitised baby monitors, data feedback from bottles, dummies, cots, prams, clothing and more, can simply be tracked to a Smartphone via Bluetooth.

The Monit Smart Diaper Monitor was shared at the 2019 Annual Consumers Electronics Show in the US. Monit created a cookie-sized sensor with Bluetooth that attaches to the outside of a baby’s diaper. The sensor can detect whether there’s pee or poo in the diaper and alert parents and caregivers. Using a smart diaper sensor can reduce instances of diaper rash and urinary tract infections. Also data from the sensor can be used to track diaper consumption, pee and poo patterns and sleeping patterns. The Monit smart diaper monitor launched in Korea and Japan at the end of 2018. Poop! There it is. No more need for a diaper sniff test.
