Changing diapers is a job new parents often dread, but did you know that parents can monitor a baby’s health by paying attention to their diapers? Meet DiaperHero™, the app that helps parents track, measure and record diaper counts and weights. Not only does DiaperHero™ help keep parents informed and happy, but the app includes a social media component that connects new parents and offers diaper changers the chance to win $25 dollars in the Diaper of the Day contest.

DiaperHero™ works by using a Bluetooth scale and counter to automatically record the diaper weight and other details of each diaper change. Using badges and easy-to-read analytics, the app generates reports and graphs that highlight diaper changing milestones and also illustrate trends in a baby’s diapers over time. Using the app, this information can be shared with health professionals, family, and friends. DiaperHero™ also stores photos of a baby’s diapers that parents can share or submit to the Diaper of the Day contest. Each day, a winner is chosen based on the content, color, consistency, and WOW factor of the diaper.

In addition, DiaperHero’s™ social component invites friendly competition among baby caregivers. Mom, dad, grandma, and the babysitter can all log in to a common account to keep track of the number and weight of diapers changed. Individuals earn badges when weights are reached, such as five pounds, twenty-five pounds, one-hundred pounds, or more! The badges are evidence of the hard work and dedication required by parents of a newborn. Badges, charts, graphs, and percentages can be shared in private messages or on social media.

Parents and caregivers can use the DiaperHero™ app to:

  • Weigh diapers
  • Track the number of diapers changed
  • Earn badges when milestones are reached
  • Take photos of diapers
  • Email charts, graphs, and photos to friends, family, and health professionals
  • Enter a photo in the Diaper of the Day contest

DiaperHero™ is available for Android and iOS and is a free download in the App Store and Google Play. The Bluetooth scale and counter is available for purchase at Parents and caregivers can also enter the Diaper of the Day contest via the app or at
