    If you're relying on a twitter feed to let you know your baby needs changing, you have issues which can't be fixed by a moisture detector and an app.

    It isn't about knowing, its about sharing.

    New parents like to share.... to everyone. I honestly don't give a crap that you had 2 hours sleep and little darling took a massive dump, but sure, why don't you tell me all about it anyway.

    I for one welcome this, if it keeps people like that on Twitter, it keeps them away from me. Just like Sainsburys.

    There are some things that really shouldn't be shared, really... how do these people find the time for such trivialities?

    If parents have got time to waste valuable "off job" time tweeting sprogs bodily functions then they're not doing that "parenting" thing right.

    Or, as SWMBO pointed out, the tweeting gives Dad something to do while Mum disposes of the effluent. Similarly technoDad gets this app so he can say to hassled Mum "oh darling, my phone says junior needs changing".

    Actually I think they've missed a feature here. If they know how many nappies you're going through AND how many you got, then why not offer some kind of automated ecommerce "solution", so the app can order more for you before you run out? It'd prevent the risk of someone going out to the shops and replacing with a non-Huggies alternative!

    Not sure the app is needed - someone I know rigged up a "very simple and cheap" (his words) circuit with stuff from Maplins to just ring a little chime if the sensor got wet. His missus wasn't that impressed ... can't think why.

    A yellow light on their heads might be more appropriate... a little chime is far too jolly!

    The pee gets absorbed by the nappies I've had the pleasure of fitting.
    What about when junior does a number two?

    WRONG

    Mrs Roo informs you when it's nappy change time.

    "It's your turn"

    At to deal with MrBozack's point I'm sure the usual applies, namely:
    "Can you smell something?"
    "No ... what kind of 'something'?"
    "Think the kid's done something"
    "Well I can't smell anything, so you had better go check"
    (short delay) "Eee-yuck! This is disgusting"
    "Seeing as you've got the nappy off now, you might as well change it ... before there's an 'accident'!"

    Good thing about this is that it works both ways ... unfortunately.

    Maybe "TweetDump 2.0" could harness one of those "digital noses" that were being developed in umpteen different labs, as a phone add-on. Although didn't Google's April Fool this year have smell recognition - so maybe they're already developing TD2.0 ... "GoogleDump" or "Google Diaper" anyone?

    Are there actually people out there who cannot tell when a child needs it's nappy changing by not only the reaction of their child, but also the smells?

    If there is - sterilise the lot of them I say

    What has the world come too.

    doesn't the sense of smell due to a poo or the sense of sight due to a sagging nappy not tell you that the nappy needs changed.

    The person that thought that up needs shot, and is obviously not a parent.

    Those things don't tell you nappy needs changing if you're the kind of moron that's stuck baby in a quiet room 'cos all the crying was disrupting your online gaming, or the latest episode of Big Brother on the idiot box. And if you need a nappy tweet, you probably are that grade of parent.
