Potty Patrol: Diapers armed with alarms

Potty Patrol diapers aim to encourage potty training success

Two Brigham Young University grads are on Potty Patrol. Tait Eyre and Tim Fuhriman are marketing a new diaper that helps junior learn the basics of where and when to go. When junior does something in a Potty Patrol diaper, an alarm goes off and plays "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." Eyre and Fuhriman are both fathers. They say while Potty Patrol costs a little more, it can help get youngsters out of diapers sooner. A local paper (Daily Herald) reports the diapers are now being test marketed in Utah.

According to the company's website PottyPatrol.com:

Potty Training Alarm Diapers are designed to notify you and your child when wetting occurs, so that you can place your child on the toilet immediately. Being placed on the toilet while the event is still fresh in your child's mind helps them make the connection between cause and effect more quickly and effectively. Potty Patrol reduces the need for random sits on the potty! Many children interpret this as punishment, because they don't understand why they are confined to the potty for extended periods of time. Worse yet, if they don't need to go to the bathroom at that time, they may feel they have failed, because they are unable to meet their parents' expectations. Potty Patrol encourages success, because it ensures that children go to the bathroom for one purposeā€¦to use it!
