“How clever is it to have the little bag for holding and disposing of the dirty diaper
right inside the diaper itself?!? I for one think this is an amazing
concept and would love it for when I have another baby”

I think this is a great idea for on the go. The only food for thought I have is the random "destructo dan" kid that tears up their diaper at night. You would not want a platic bag to be i the bed with the child unattended. Maybe a disclaimer about not using them at night?

Great concept. PRice would be a big consideration, however, it would beat having to purchase a diaper pail refil. Which is the general idea. No smell and dispose of in a normal trash can, one less thing taking up space.

Great idea, but
by Michael R
It is a great idea and can't believe that no one has thought about it before. My only concern would be the cost hike between this and the conventional diaper. If there is a significant cost difference then I would resort to using free plastic shopping bags as we do now. Just something to think about.

This looks like a great idea. It would be a perfect life savor at a restruant or a family outing. I wouldn't feel guilty about throwing away the diaper anywhere because it would be clean and harmless. I hope this makes it out onto the shelves. Camping would also be a blast too with problem out of the way.

This is a great concept. Diapers have changed for the better since the days we used cloth diapers and a diaper pail when our children were babies back in the 60s and 70s. Our grandchildren fared better. This improvement will be the crowning addition to make diapering much simpler and more pleasant for parents, grandparents and other child-care providers.

I am a father of two boys. I don’t have to deal with the smell anymore. And, if I happen to change my kids in their room, my room or any room, I can conveniently disposed of the dirty diaper in the bathroom trash bin without stinky up the house. And, I can easily pass on the soiled diaper to another person (like my wife) to dispose of without spreading germs. The lists go on and on of what make me a DiaperPods consumer.

Brendon R. replied to Sideth U.
Sideth, just because an idea has been tried before does not mean it can not be a success. The disposal of used diapers at home, in the public or at another person's home is dictated by so many variables such as personal attitudes, cultural attitudes, methods applied by friends and relatives and so on... Your idea has had an appeal on the latent needs level since disposable diapers became the primary product. But like most latent needs, consumers tend to find a way to deal with it alternatively. The key to developing an appeal for a latent need product is to find those consumers who are totally dissatisfied with the methods they are familiar with and are using to meet that need. In other words, consumers like yourself. This is a specialty product with an unknown market size as has been demonstrated by previous versions and their longevity in the market. If you can leverage those who are dissatisfied by offering this product separately from the traditional product for special occasions (according to that consumer's definition) you may have the chance to grow a more permanent market base. Unfortunately I would expect those who have the greatest latent need for this product are also going to be highly cost sensitive due to their environment. But I could be wrong on this point. If not, cost will be a significant limiter. The technology necessary to produce a diaper with a pod on a high speed machine would be relatively inexpensive compared to the rest of the machine. But when you add the cost of the extra raw materials, something else will have to give to save the cost and make the product available in its most likely market. Everything I said here has probably been stated before by others, but due to the 81 comments I did not read them all so I can't be certain. Regardless, the idea has merit if you are willing to find the right base of consumers, something previous versions did not focus on. That is always the key to a product idea that meets a latent need.

Sideth U. replied to Brendon R.
Brendon, Thank you very much for taking the time to comment. I agree…if you first don’t succeed, try and try again. We believe that, if we start of with premium diapers as well as adult diapers, we should be able to determine the market size. With consumers that are not as price sensitive will be more likely to try it. I also agree that this product does have merit. I guess we won’t know unless we make it and put it on the shelf. The two main ingredients for success are risk and failure. And, yes this is a huge risk. Well, I either think and dream about it or try to make something happen. One thing for sure…I don’t except “no” for an answer. Any manufacturers that want to take this project on? Again, thank you Brendon and vote for us. Text 546 to 383838.

by Giulio D.
Dear Sideth, I will try to test your idea with a couple of objections that surely you must solve.. question No. 1 I think the point from which we extract the bag is a very stressed and you will have to guarantee 100% that the bag can not come out accidentally. Because if there is a possibility to come out ( just only the possibility) sure someone is ready to tell "my baby is tripped in the bag and broke his nose" my little girl is tripped in the bag and fell down the stairs "Do you understand?! It will not be true (I hope ....), but you open yourself up to be victims of people who want to take this opportunity to make money. What entrepreneur wants to take these risks? And to secure this problem the solutions are cheap and convenient? question No. 2 I think that generally correspond to each diaper removed a new diaper applied. And then it is more practical, convenient and secure that every diaper is folded together with a bag (or that every diaper is placed in a bag) to contain the dirty diaper just removed? The child will be free from danger, to secure the diaper, the cost is minimal ... .... I think that if you solve these problems, the road to success you will be closer to you .... Regards Giulio
5 years 7 months ago
Carlos R. replied to Giulio D.
Giulio's question 2 is a simple but at the same time an excellent observation. I do not remember any situation where you remove the diaper on the baby without having the next diaper ready to use. It has no logic at all unless you want the baby to run naked. For sure the baby does not need to wear the bag while he is using the diaper. The suggested method for the very first diaper bag that you buy is to remove it from the diaper and use it in your first change. This way, there is no problem having the bag on the frontal tape. Giulio=Genius ....Smile!

Sideth U. replied to Carlos R.
Giulio, thanks for your observation. I totally understand your concerns as I have 3 boys myself and their safety is my # 1 and only concern. I would not trade a gazillion dollars for their life or any other child’s life. Having said that, I have spent many months thinking about those concerns, thus the reason why I call my invention “DiaperPods”. Assume that the child…for whatever reason tears into the diaper. The only thing that’s inside the diaper is pulps and my pod (not bag, but pod). You would have to have the adult dexterity to ripe open the pod. I have engineered it to have multiple child safety steps. I hope that parents are responsible enough to discard the diaper after they change their child. There are always risks, nothing that is man-made can 100% guaranteed. Airplanes are so well engineered and we still have accidents ‘till this day. I’m confident that my DiaperPods has what it takes for child safety design. Speaking of kids tripping over things, my kids tripped over their toys on a daily bases. I have to admit they never have broken their nose, but a lot of black and blue on their body. As responsible parents, we pick them up, kiss their booboo and move on. Believe me, I do understand, nor do I want my kids to live in box or a bubble. Every entrepreneur would have to be able to take risks. Risks and failures are the main ingredient for success. If anyone can’t stomach that, than they should not call themselves entrepreneurs. If we don’t have the creative mind and take the risks, then we can’t complain. This is my dream and I will do what it takes to make this happen, as many orphans out there depend on it. I hope I answer you question, now do I have you vote? :-) Carlos, thanks for jumping and answering Giulio second concern.

Declare war on improper diaper disposal http://www.caller.com/news/2012/jan/29/eeew-declare-war-on-improper-diaper-disposal/ I suppose a diaper pod might make it more likely that a mom or dad would put a dirty diaper in the car and dispose of it properly.

Carlos, thanks for your advice. We will take that into consideration. I will pass the word down to our engineers.

Our engineering team is working with AST to get that worked out. Again thanks for your advice.

Sideth U. replied to Sideth U.
Thank you Carlos! Having 3 boys with one set of twins, I have observed them wearing diapers with DiaperPods technology first hand as well as them playing with each other. 99% of the times diapers are worn under clothes. With safety in mind…I’ve also thought about convenient. Once you change them and roll up the diaper, the perforation section of the diaper is right there for you to access. I hope our engineer can integrate the module into the diaper machines without affecting the speed. Thanks for the encouragement. Let’s win the Wal-Mart contest!!! Please vote for DiaperPods.

Carlos R. replied to Sideth U.
Sideth, I believe you should change the position of the pod (the locations of the disposable bag). The way you have it now it is fine for the consumer but very inconvenient for a fast speed diaper machine. This will limit the potential for licensing; most diaper manufacturers will have a very hard time adapting their lines to your current concept. You may want to consider hiding the pod behind the frontal tape. I believe there is enough space to do it efficiently with minor adaptations. The difference is that you are able to apply it at 1/10 of the required linear speed of the diaper and it is much easier for anyone to modify the diaper equipment. Hope it helps. Good luck!

Carlos R. replied to Carlos R.
Sideth, I agree with your logic, being at the front has a greater risk than being on the back of the diaper (except when two babies are playing together at an infant care facility); if the tab is small enough and the force required to pull it out large enough, then the risk can be minimized. AST is a good company, they may find a working solution..... Anyway, I agree with the rest... you should pursuit your dream.

by Giulio D.
Dear Sideth, honesty, I have no read all the pubblications so I'm not sure to suggest you a new idea. I think that ,probably, is not a totally new idea. I have found a similar idea dated march(?) 2011....and I really hope for you that you are before....(see " Inventando.it") In any case... I think when you have a diaper full of urina or other, you want put it in the garbage, bag or not bag. In my opinion is easy, just at this time and with the pdoducts in the market today , to close the diaper and I don't remenber big problems with my childrens. But , in my opinion, is a good idea but a wrong application. Who used reusable diaper need to take home the diaper and need a bag .Better if the bag is included in the diaper...of corse in a correct material (goretex?) In that field I suggest you to find an application... I hope really that my suggestion can help your idea...good luck! Giulio

Noble M. replied to Giulio D.
Grazie Giulio, I would agree there are similar or the idea may not be new. We define "new" in terms of the invention itself. It is also agreed that people may have different opinions whether Diaperpods may be apply to all types of diapers or situations. Ultimately, Diaperpods was designed for disposable rather than reusable diapers and to provide convenience to the diaper changer. Which in that application, it is included within the diaper.

A very important issue Ann, and also very true. The entrance to the pocket must be made hard enough to enter, that a typical toddler should not be able to get their little fingers inside to pull the bag out. Toddlers are quite intelligent and very capable of finding ways to get what they want, specially after looking at Mommy or Daddy pulling out an interesting looking "toy" from the previous diaper change. From Sideth's video, it looks almost like a magic trick, must be equally amusing for the baby. I guess a solution is possible, but needs to be carefully planned.
5 years 7 months ago
by Ann G.
As a mother I would be very concerned that a toddler would be able to access the disposable bag thus making it very dangerous. Bags must carry a warning to keep away from children and babies and with this system you put a potentially suffocating bag in the hands of a toddler.
5 years 7 months ago
Sideth U. replied to Ann G.
Ann, thanks for the comment and concerns. My pod has multiple child proof design built in. And even if toddler(s) happens to be playing with their diaper and are able to get into the diaper, the only thing they are able to do is…pull out the pod itself. As Noble mentioned, it needs adult dexterity to break into the pod and if so, bag will not deploy unless perforated safety seal is broken. And, even toddler happens to get in the pod, our Patent designed of the “fold” bag have other safety precaution and will not deploy into a bag unless adult attend to unfold it. After all, for the most part toddler has clothes on which is another safety precaution. Anyway, I have thought through as many safety precautions as possible and pod-like-design is the only way I can think make it feasible for child proof design. I pray to God that no child will die from this as my intention is make life more convenient, odor contained and sanitary.

Noble M. replied to Ann G.
Ann, Child safety is a "very" important subject matter for us. We understand your concerns as a parent as they are our concerns as well. The Diaperpod is design to be child proof. It does require adult strength and dexterity to access the bag.

Scott, you do have a sense of humor!!! We’re going to love working with you. The smell of poop gags me. I want to get it of my hands as soon as possible. I can ship you my poopy diapers, as long as you “youtube” it for me, when you use it against your neighborhood kids. I would love to see that. I’ve been putting up with poopy diapers for the last 3 years, and with another one coming, I don’t want to go through this anymore. I have many enough pods to last me 2 months at time. If you ever have changed your kids in the middle of the night and leaving the poopy diaper there to dispose of in the morning, then you know what I mean. Who would want to wake up to that? If you ever come home from a bad day and your house reeks of poops and/or you begin to see more flies and you wonder why? Well…because poop that was thrown away in your garage has fermented and maggots now become flies. I think you all know what I mean. Noble, your response hit the nail on the head. And, as Carlos mentioned, I agree and also believed that DiaperPods has it own niche market. Who were to think that we need night time diapers until you wake up with your kid(s) in a puddle of piss? If major diaper company doesn’t see the advantage, hopefully smaller private label companies will. Think about it…no company want to loose their market shares. With this new concept in their diaper line…they will gain market shares.

Ah Sideth, were you looking at my website? I agree with the quote by King Camp Gillette and truly wish you the best with Diaperpods. Not every American has the diaper pail with the lid and we are a very mobile society so I do believe you will be successful. All the best to you Sideth.

I bag every one of the messy ones (2 of 4 grandkids still in diapers) for smell and containment too and get it to the outside garbage container ASAP. The wet ones with the self contained rewrap natural with the baby diaper itself/tpes seems to be fine in, our out of the house. Of course MY kids started in the days of cloth diapers being the only decent option. The diaper pail was the pail of the death . Always burned my face hair off when I opened it. Those people that cling to cloth diapers have a few lug nuts loose. Or perhaps they like being in constant pain to prove to mother earth their sacrifice is worthy of something I can't understand..

Sideth, I liked your video and your concept. As a mother I wish these would have been available to me. I had to resort to asking the grocery store to double-bag my groceries just so I'd have enough to wrap up dirty diapers. As a future grandmother I will be happy to support you by buying your products when they appear on the market. Best of luck to you. From a consumer standpoint, my friends and I think it's a very timely idea.

Ramona… thanks for the support and great comment. A great invention is something that can be bought, throw away or consumed and buy again. Also, manufacturing looks for product(s) that is an extension of an existing product…at least that what I believe. We as human are naturally looking for ways to be more convenient. If you disagree, I challenge you to take you own trash to the land fill yourself. I have twin boys and another one on the oven, and I have tried everything possible to contain soiled diaper. For example, I have used diaper genie, grocery bags, and of course the bag that you buy at the store. They all works as for odor containment, but ask yourself…are they convenient? Doctor’s offices and restaurants are now posting signs to not dispose of dirty diaper in their trash without bagging it. Johan, the number one priority is convenient. Odor contained and sanitary is a plus. I will try to answer you concerns as I have experience in this department (with twin boys). No matter how you slice it or dice it, poop is poop. It stinks no matter whose it is. You want it flushed down the toilet as soon as it…well you know. Or, wrapped up, contained, thrown away and “forget about it” (New York accent). I think you are a very responsible parent and this convenient is not necessary for you. But, I believe there are a lot of parents that would love to have this built-in technology in their kid’s diapers. Remember you do have options. All I’m trying to gather here is…will it sell, would you buy it, etc…

You bring the patent to 3 experts with good technical background on Intellectual Property, all with a signed NDA; if none of them can find a good alternative solution, that is, to make a similar product without infringement to the original patent, then you have a strong patent.... Now, Super strong patent, maybe that is a very strong word... haha. I have seen some crazy bending of the facts already so maybe the Super Strong applies only to Superman.

Carlos, you have some interesting insight on the subject matter of patents and how big companies, or any size company, may view them. In your mind, what is considered a "super strong patent"? And, what is the difference with how big companies’ vs. medium/small companies will view utilizing a patent in their product? Even though the response for DiaperPods has been excellent thus far, it seems that you believe that it will be a different response in a manufacture's eyes.

I'm an idiot when it comes to this. But standing on the sidelines seeing this, would it not make more sense to offer it to ALL of the majors and let them market the convenience rather than the niche manufacturers. They would have the volumes necessary to drive the costs down still allowing a healthy return. We're talking fractional cents vs millions of pieces.

Carlos R. replied to Jesus B.
Jesus: If the idea has a "super strong" patent, then I would probably agree with you. In this particular case, the same concept has been explored many times for decades. I believe the big companies, if they are really interested, will probably go ahead and do it without the need of Sideth. no need for them to pay for a license or any royalties. They usually find ways to go around most patents. They also adhere to the NIH "Not invented Here" policy, which holds true today even after spending a big deal of money trying to convince the industry otherwise. I believe Sideth may have better luck with a small or medium size company. I am also interested on reading his patent to advise if it has any real marketing potential.

I am not the greatest PC alarmist and as such the messy diapers my grandkids have ALL go into a plastic bag saved from the grocery store visit (yes I demand plastic...works better, and takes up less space in the landfill). So containing the smell and "leakage" in the garbage can is most beneficial. HOWEVER, I find wet/poopy diapers are best used as "high impact" water balloons or hand grenades when the neighbor kids come around. Hitting a wall or a sidewalk provide twice the fun. Sideth, I hope you find a place for the idea seriously. It is an old idea tried often with the cost and ability to gain mass market appeal the hurdle as the brands are not helping you pioneer it, it does not appeal to the greeny weenies apostles of world salvation and most, like us, just make sure we have the supermarket bags available en mass at home or in the diaper bag. But I am a mass marketer looking for world domination, perhaps there is a niche that can hit your profit goals not requiring distribution through traditional CPG channels. Good luck. I saw similar ideas come across my desk many times when I worked for Weyerhaeuser/Paragon Trade Brands and never saw the consumer attractiveness and of course, the manufacturing issues on an ultra highspeed diaper machine made it flat out unrealistic. We did stuff plastic bags inside of plastic bags to give mothers an option but that was a waste of effort. Tough one. Really fun demo. I like it. Made me smile.

I was at Weyerhaeuser as a plebe or head of marketing and new product development commercializations etc from 1986 to 2000. They paid me a lot to stay during chapter 11 but then it got real mercenary and Tyco was becoming the likely acquirer and I wanted nothing to do with that group after working in an environment that was "relatively" empowered and open channels to get things done or at least good tough and rumble debates. So I took off for the NW. Let's talk.

Scott, There are a lot of kids in my neighborhood. I’m afraid they will form alliance against me and come back with a bigger and better WMD. I know, because I use to be a kid myself. :-) What a small world this is, you mentioned that you use to work for Paragon Trade Brand…, so did I. I got laid off when Tyco Healthcare acquired us back in 2003. You also mentioned that you saw similar idea come across your desk…I’m curious, what do you think would be the biggest hurdle for diaper manufacturing to turn away from the concept. Is it the manufacturing process or the costs or both? I’ve made over 200 hundred prototypes by hand and used it on my twin boys and my friend’s kid and it worked like perfectly. As for cost, it’s very minimal…even less if we mass market this. The only concerns our viewers have is that they don’t want the price of diaper increase. I believe that you don’t have to increase the price of diaper. Diaper companies who license this can benefit by gaining market share. I believe that if we make it they will buy it, just because it’s convenient, sanitary and odor contained. If anyone have any concerns please advise.

Sideth, if the DiaperPod is "green" then obviously you need to find a diaper which is also "green" and biodegradable. Not much point of putting something which is not biodegradable into a bag which is, I guess... Not too many manufacturers of biodegradable diapers out there, but the ones who are there are already niche manufacturers that offer a value-added products for eco-concerned parents, which means that you may have your best chance with those manufacturers. ATB - Investkonsult - Johan PS. you may want to speak with one of the niche producers about investing in a fairly cheap diaper line with a lower speed in order to try out the product without having to produce 800 diapers a minute... Guessing that a speed of 150-200 pcs/min would be more than sufficient.

Noble M. replied to Johan B.
It will definitely appeal differently to everyone based upon their type of lifestyle. DiaperPods concept was invented for people like active mothers who like taking their children (running, hiking, to the park), social parents attend gatherings with their children, families that like to travel on the road, caregivers at retirement homes or medical facilities, or simply people that think they need something more versatile than a diaper pale located in a only one room of the house. There will always be different perspectives towards different products but none the less people who want something practical to utilize. Overall, it’s a product for anyone that wants a convenient, sanitary and odor containment disposal method built within the main product being utilized. There are different diapers with different purposes such as super dry, over nights, green diapers etc that people are utilizing. Diapers with DiaperPod technology is another one of those kinds. It just happens to be able to be included in everyone type of diaper available if desired or can be just a travel/active parent diaper product. There are many perspectives and directions one can go with the concept.

Alison and Johan you both have strong points. There are several biodegradable products Sideth, the fact remains that these products do not biodegrade in most landfills. Unless there is a good legislation for the managing of landfills, If you really want to be "green" I suggest a sustainable solution, one using raw materials with lower Carbon footprint and raw materials derived from natural resources.

Johan B. replied to Carlos R.
Sideth and the rest, Even though I appreciate the concept there is one small thing I don’t understand and it may be a cultural difference. My youngest child just stopped wearing diapers about a month ago so all this is very recent to me, but correct me if I’m wrong. By using the diaper-pod you want to get rid of the smell as the number one priority. Most of the diapers we changed were at home and we had one of these diaper dispensers, like a cylindrical wastebasket with a lid on it. As the lid closed tight there was no smell. Inside the dispenser we put a plastic bag and when it was full we tied the plastic bag and went outside and put in the garbage can. Sure, the moment you opened the dispenser you’d have an unpleasant smell for a short while. They had the same kind of dispenser at our kindergarten but larger of course. I can see the usage of the diaper-pod when you are outside and far from a garbage can, but seriously how often does that happen these days. It’s not like you go camping several weeks per year with a child of 1-3 years, or? I’m just curious, but again this may be a cultural difference between the US and Scandinavia? ATB - Johan

Although this is not a new Idea as mentioned by Carlos, your solution demonstrated in the video seems the best I ever saw. To my view, the fact that we hear this idea again and again is a fairly good indication that the added value and the market need are there. The bigger challenge however is to find the right baby diaper producer who can make this happen on a baby diaper converting line with reasonable cost. You should maybe look for those with very good technical capabilities that are looking for niches and do not necessarily want to compete and be crushed against the big guys in the main stream. Good luck

Thank You Yoav! You can go to diaperpods.com or look us up in youtube. We are also on Wal-Mart website at www.getontheshelf.com. Just incase everyone is curious about this contest or haven't heard about it. Read below. NEW YORK (CNNMoney) Wal-Mart's "Get on the shelf" contest lets anyone submit a video of their product or invention. Renee Anderson, designer of the ePillow, has already entered. Wal-Mart has launched an "American Idol"-like contest to find the best new products. For the first time, the world's largest retailer is giving any small business, entrepreneur or individual inventor a shot at winning a spot on its store shelves nationwide and virtual shelf space through walmart.com. The contest is called "Get on the shelf." Similar to the popular reality show "American Idol," Wal-Mart (WMT) said contestants can enter any product category that it already has -- ranging from toys, electronics to clothing and household goods. They then can create and submit videos of their latest inventions at www.GetOnTheShelf.com. The discounter said the public will then vote online for the top three winners at GetOnTheShelf.com. The three will be sold on walmart.com. But the top winner will also automatically get shelf space in select Wal-Mart stores around the country. This kind of public contest is an unusual departure from how Wal-Mart typically picks products for its store. Wal-Mart is notoriously strict with its merchandise selection process, usually requiring vendors to meet with its in-house buyers at Wal-Mart headquarters in Bentonville, Ark., in small rooms lining a bluish-gray corridor that's unofficially referred to as "vendor row." Vendors keen to score a deal with Wal-Mart get a strict hour or less to pitch their products and convince Wal-Mart buyers about why they should stock them. "For a long time, the ability to get a product into a retail store was at the sole discretion of the store buyer," said Venky Harinarayan, senior vice president of Wal-Mart's global e-commerce unit. "Today we are removing these barriers by giving anyone the chance to launch their product at Wal-Mart and reach millions of shoppers nationwide," he said. Although Wal-Mart officially announced the contest on Wednesday, the retailer has quietly been getting the word out since late December and has already received more than 60 entries. Among them, an iPad pillow from ePillow, Ugg-like boots for dogs and a locking device for your soda bottle, so no can sneak sips behind your back. Wal-Mart said people can submit their video pitches until Feb. 22. The contest is open only to U.S. participants. The first round of voting will happen between March 7 and April 4 to select 10 finalists. The second round of voting between April 11 and April 24 will determine the top three winners. Chris Bolte, vice president of @WalmartLabs, said Wal-Mart hopes to quickly stock the top winning product at its stores. "But the timeframe really depends on the business behind the product," he said. "A small business, medium-sized business or individual inventor tends to be at different points of production."Bolte said Wal-Mart will help the winning companies, if they need it, with production and distribution assistance to ramp up production in order to meet Wal-Mart's quantity requirement. And depending on the contest's success, Wal-Mart will decide on whether or not to repeat it, he said. "At the end of the day, we're hoping to uncover products that we haven't been looking at and give consumers a voice about what Wal-Mart carries," he said.

Hello Sideth. What a great way to get feedback for your invention. I enjoyed your video-demo and will offer you friendly suggestions you may take or leave. My background includes a lot of diaper R and D for many years with Kimberly-Clark during which I had the rewarding opportunity to test tons of diaper prototypes on my own babies, very good timing for me :) to have had children during that time... And I specialize(d) in optimizing skin dryness and health by engineering a non-occlusive diaper. It appeared to me from your demo that the presence of the 'bag' is going to greatly hinder mass transfer out of the breathable outercover at a location where it matters most. And if the bag is rolled up very tightly so as to only 'occlude' a small area, then I am concerned it would be a very uncomfortable sensation for a baby laying on his/her back. Either way it would allow more moisture to build up inside the diaper than without the bag. I imagine there is a segment of the market who wouldn't really care about child comfort or skin health but I am not one of those. My suggestion (if you have not already considered this) is to put the bag/pod at a place where there is already no mass transfer of moisture vapor out of the diaper. Even at the back waistband this would seem to me to occlude the skin and form a 'lump'. But if you put it in side waistband area, (the 'ear') it would be perfect... but would it be sort of bulky and one-sided? Hmmm. It also seemed to me that the film bag was bigger than it needed to be; I assume you made it as thin as feasible, and of a polymer blend that maximally occludes offensive odors. The best part of your idea, in my opinion, is that it DOES contain offensive odors MUCH more so than if you had just wrapped your diaper up very tightly, since the breathable outercovers of todays diapers DO tend to transmit odors!! Kind regards, Carol

Sideth, although I love your innovative execution I cannot endorse your pursuing implementation for the following reason. With cloth-like outer covers and either mushroom or Velcro-like hooks diapers are fairly sealable already and even with just the landing patch it is not that difficult to seal them after use. This leaves just messy diapers that are soiled on the outside which would benefit from the DiaperPods. BTW, perhaps that is one way you could market the concept. Never-the-less God speed with your endeavor.
5 years 7 months ago
Sideth U. replied to Stan K.
Stan, thank for your advice and comment. I agree with the fact that it’s pretty sealed after diaper is soiled, but not wrapping it with the Velcro strap is not enough where odor is fully contained, not to mention convenient for the on-to-go parents. However, it doesn’t matter how you wrap a poppy diaper, without a diaper bag it will smell. Trust me; I have twin boys, thus leads me to invent DiaperPods. Currently when I change my kids in there room, my room and even at my friends and parents houses. I just don’t have the conscious to throw a poopy diaper in there trash without wrapping it in a grocery bag. Anyway all I’m trying to sell is my concept that it’s convenient, sanitary and odor contained. I hope you find it in your heart to endorse that concept. Again, thank you very much for your advice.

The idea is not new. About 15 years ago a product invented in Canada had a similar pouch. They used a baby Kangaroo as their Logo and as pet printed on the frontal tape. They could not find a manufacturer to do it so they ended manufacturing it in a small diaper factory in Guanajuato Mexico. The product was sold for about a year and then no more. I have to admit that your pouch is better designed and much better looking. I guess its success may depend on the added cost of the individual plastic bags and if you are able to find a manufacturer for mass production. It is convenient for people on the go while traveling, but not a good idea for those changing the diaper at home. I am sure you must be aware of the many alternative products designed to wrap the diaper and seal it, to stop all smell, but they are not really as portable as having it built into the diaper itself. Good luck!

I hope that the new and improve design and look will catch consumers eyes and demand for it. Any advice and/or suggest you or anyone in this network can give is much appreciated.

Scott, you are indeed funny! You have found a new use on how to recycle some diapers and help mother earth at the same time. Messy diapers may be used as weapons of mass destruction by the military!! Ok, maybe the correct word was not destruction but distraction. A messy diaper thrown at the center of a large crowd will make them run for their life.... but I agree, definitively the Diaperpod has its own niche market.

Sideth, there are many manufacturers from all over the world reading your post (as we speak). If you answer the following questions, you may have some proposals some interested parties. The main problems that I can see are: 1- Do you have the required Intellectual property? Is it really a strong patent? If you don't, then anyone can make this concept, even without you! 2- What is the size of the first order? Few manufacturers, if any, will agree to manufacture a special product that requires machine modifications without a firm multi-million diaper order. This means initial working capital will be high unless you already have a good sponsor. 3- Expected price of the finished product with the pod. There is probably a market for it. but it is a small niche. You will need small count bags, probably 5 or less. This means a large diaper producer with high speed machines and large counts will not be a good fit for this product. You need a small diaper manufacturer with small count capabilities.

Hi Carlos, thanks for your response and sharing the excitement we have about DiaperPods. The questions you raise are important topics. Yes IP is very important and we are well positioned. We are working very hard to maximize the DiaperPods technology to have a great impact in the industry. We know the diaper industry is a very high volume and cost critical to the end consumer. With any addition to a product there are associated material cost. We are confident that the DiaperPods cost will bring added value providing a market edge over diapers without the technology. The cost is very minimal that we could see it successfully added to low end economy diaper. If you feel you could help shed any further incite to the DiaperPods technology I would love to hear your thoughts. Please don't hesitate to contact me directly.
