This Smart Changing Pad will track your baby's growthAn editor and his baby decide whether the Hatch Baby's smarts justify the price.
[MUSIC] As a parent, how much would you pay for a changing pad that tracked your child's development over time by recording things like wet diapers, dirty diapers Feeding patterns, sleeping patterns, etc. Today, we're taking a look at the Hatch Baby smart changing pad, which does all of that for a price tag of $250. So, I brought in my eight-week-old son to test out this changing pad and see if it's really worth that price. Now, just from the design's perspective, this changing pad is actually really nice. It's really durable, it's got a great pad that's really soft for the baby. I really like it a lot. It also features a really accurate scale which is especially helpful during those first few months when you're trying to track your baby's growth. I also really like the Hatch Baby app, it's really flexible and it allows you to track different data with his diaper habits, it's feeding habits, sleeping habits, etc. Now, all of that It's said you can actually accomplish most of it through the free app. Which kind of bags the question why you would wanna spend $250 on a nice changing station that really doesn't add any smart of it's own. Really, the only thing that the changing pad itself offers is the scale that allows you to weigh your baby. But beyond that, it really doesn't offer very much smart. [SOUND] [BLANK_AUDIO]
