Hatch Baby Smart Changing Pad

What is the Smart Changing Pad?

The Smart Changing Pad is the most innovative redesign of the traditional diaper changing pad that’s ever been undertaken. With a built-in wireless smart scale that helps new parents track key infant health metrics like weight, number of feedings, wet diapers, and real time growth data, the Smart Changing Pad lets parents know from day one whether their baby is getting enough nutrition and growing at a healthy rate. What’s more, the Smart Changing Pad automatically records and sorts this very crucial information into an easy to use companion app.

Helping Moms Meet their Breastfeeding Goals

Fifty percent of moms believe they have low milk supply, but only five percent actually do, with insufficient supply being one of the top 3 reasons moms quit breastfeeding. The Smart Changing Pad will change that by letting breastfeeding moms know exactly how much their babies eat at every feeding, adding functionality to a product found in most nurseries (the traditional diaper changing pad is the #4 most registered item according to BabyList).

Features

Know exactly how much your baby is eating

Unlike with bottle-feeding, it’s almost impossible to know how much your baby eats during a nursing session. Use the Smart Changing Pad before and after breastfeeding to know with confidence your baby is eating enough.

Chart your baby’s growth and understand what’s normal for her

Track your baby’s growth in between well-child visits. Compare her growth over time to worldwide (WHO) data and other Hatch babies in the Hatch Baby app.

Log diaper changes automatically

Use the Smart Changing Pad to easily record diaper changes to share with your pediatrician. Know your baby is drinking enough by tracking every change.

Understand your baby’s sleep patterns

A regular sleep schedule can keep your baby from getting overtired. Track your baby’s naps and nighttime sleep with the Hatch Baby app to better understand his sleep patterns.

Stay connected to your baby while you're away

Whether you’re running errands or at work, get notifications on the go from the Hatch Baby app. Know how much your baby is eating, sleeping, and more anytime, from anywhere.

Easily share your baby’s day with multiple caregivers

Share your baby's account across multiple devices to keep everyone on the same page.

Get fascinating insights about you and your baby

Answer daily questions and gain insights about you and your baby relative to other Hatch Baby users.

Watch your baby grow in a picture a day

Don’t forget to take a picture of your baby everyday! The Hatch Baby app will remind you to snap a photo of your baby so you can see him grow and change over time.

Meet your breastfeeding goals

More than two-thirds of new moms don’t meet their breastfeeding goals. Use the helpful videos, articles, and tips in the Hatch Baby app while you’re in the hospital and at home to improve your breastfeeding confidence and meet your goals.

Hatch Baby Safety

Safety

The Smart Changing Pad uses standard WiFi technology used in most homes. It turns on when you touch the screen and turns off when the screen goes dark. According to the World Health Organization, WiFi exposes you to less radiofrequency signals than radios and TV and hasn’t been shown to cause any negative health effects. The Smart Changing Pad is made from baby-safe materials found in most nurseries. The machine-washable cover for the changing pad is made from cotton and/or polyester. The changing pad base is made from durable ABS plastic (BPA-free and Phthalates-free), which is used to make most high quality home products.

Testimonials from Our Beta Program

Love it!

“I love seeing how my 1-week old baby's weight changes every day—especially compared to other babies in the ‘Stats’ section. I can't believe how quickly he's growing.”

—Christina, mother of 1-week old boy

Peace of Mind

“I felt anxious about whether I was making enough milk. The Smart Changing Pad helped me to see that she was getting more from nursing than I was able to pump. I was excited —and relieved.”

—Jill, mother of 2-month old girl

So Helpful

“I have been using the pad consistently to track their diapers and it has actually been helpful because both girls had diarrhea. It was important to be able to tell the doctor, ‘they had 6 dirty diapers yesterday’ rather than just say ‘they had a lot.”

—Denise, mother of 5-month old twin girls
