Young Entrepreneur Series – The Pocket Diaper

November 10, 2011

At the age of 5, Chelsea helped her mother diaper her baby brother. She watched her mother making sure that she had powder and wipes along with a clean diaper before she started. Chelsea thought it would be easier to have everything in one place so she invented the Diaper Pocket. This is a diaper with a pocket that holds a wipe and a powder puff in it.

The pocket diaper has all the supplies in one. Not only is it efficient, but it helps the environment by using less products!

Chelsea entered her invention in the Invent America National competition when she was in Kindergarten and won first prize. She received a patent when she was 8 years old in 1994. Chelsea continued to invent – some of her other inventions include: “Sleeve Smoother” – a device to help iron sleeves, a battery operated heated ice cream scooper and a grease-fire detector for frying pans.

Chelsea Lanmon was 5 years old when The Pocket Diaper was invented. At the age of 5, Chelsea invented the pocket diaper after witnessing her mother have trouble holding and finding all the supplies (powder, wipers, diaper) needed in changing her brother’s diaper.
