If you are a parent to a baby or toddler, you probably have poop on the brain waaaaay more than you’d care to admit. Despite all the special tables and changing mats, deodorizers, wet bags and fancy trashcans that promise to make diaper changing a more pleasant part of your day, diaper time still ranks somewhere between a tedious and time-consuming necessity and an often overwhelmingly smelly surprise. Here’s your chance to put all that potty brain power into effect: Edison Nation and Fisher-Price are seeking design ideas for the latest, greatest diaper disposal system for either disposable or reusable diapers.

For those of us who do not currently employ elves that make dirty diapers magically disappear, the design contest is a great way to examine existing diaper changing products and use your design savvy to dream up how they can be improved to become less stinky, cooler looking, more capable of containing a writhing 1 year old, and most importantly, gentler on the earth’s resources.

Of course, we love the brilliant green and hybrid diaper designs that the folks at gDiapers, Charlie Banana, bumGenius and the like are offering to today’s green parents. But this contest challenges designers and parents to keep on dreaming, innovating, and pushing for less wasteful and even more user-friendly ways to diaper.

Visit Edison Nation’s site for more info, rules, and how your winning idea could earn at least a $2,500 minimum advance. Think quick – the deadline is Monday, August 1st at 11:59 pm.
