Monit, a Korean tech startup, has recently released a tool that should help anxious and tired new parents to keep their babies as comfortable as possible. The Monit Bluetooth sensor keeps constant tabs on the state of infants' diapers, giving parents updates without bothering the baby at all.
Keeping infants in clean diapers is important, as moisture can lead to discomfort and even skin irritation. The old-fashioned sniff test is effective, but it's a difficult maneuver to pull off without waking a sleeping baby — and sleep is a new parent's most coveted commodity. The Monit sensor detects a combination of temperature, humidity, and gas to get an accurate reading of diapers without actually having to be in the diaper at all. Simply put it in the crib and forget about it until a diaper change.
