No more waiting on smell or touch to let you know when your baby wets its diaper.
A new app can alert you instead.
The new app for Kimberly-Clark’s (NYSE:KMB) Huggies diapers is called Huggies TweetPee, MSN reports. It uses Twitter to alert parents or other caregivers when a baby pees.
The app — which is only available in Brazil so far — uses a sensor mounted inside the diaper to monitor the baby’s urination. When the sensor is tripped, the tweet goes out requesting a change. It can be set to notify multiple recipients if needed.
The sensor is designed to be mounted on special Huggies diapers. The company says it can be easily moved from a soiled diaper to a clean one. The sensor also tracks the number of diapers the baby is going through to allow parents to keep them in stock.
