Smart Diapers & Caveman Parenting - With The Dad Podcast

What are you connected to on a daily basis?

Let's run through the list...

Your phone. Your computer. Your tablet.

Your car. Your home security system.

Your child's diaper.



According to Good Morning America, Pampers is releasing "Lumi," a "smart diaper" system that allows you to track your child's diaper patterns (a.k.a. - when they poop).

Justin Worsham of The Dad Podcast isn't really a fan.

"I am a big fan of getting information. But ask yourself a couple questions... How many of your friends' phone numbers do you know? Or the fastest way to get to a friend’s house? Cell phone contacts and GPS have taken that need away. Could trackers and apps for babies create and unintended consequence of a disconnect between parents and their children?

You know what Justin was happy to see, though?

That a study outlined in News-Medical shows that babies that were alive millions of years ago nursed for about one year.

"I can’t help but think what mothers who decide to breast feed their kids until they are 4 years old think about this finding. Do they think they are evolved by breast feeding longer? Are they right? To me it proves that all a kid needs is to be breast fed for about a year. And this millions of years before Gerber babies were able to be fed solid food."
