Today we would like to review recently launched Patanjali Shishu Care Diaper. For review, I bought a single diaper of medium size. There were a few things that I really liked. However, there were many that disturbed me. So, without wasting any more time, let us start the review.
The things that I liked in Patanjali's Shishu Care Diaper
Its packing is very simple.
By looking at the packing you will understand that Ayurveda has been used in this diaper.
My first impression was – Diaper is little fluffy.
For inner surface, Patanjali used cotton,which is actually very good for the babies (skin).
This diaper is available in three sizes; small, medium and large.
No More Rashes and Infections
The company knows that most parents who use diapers are upset about the rashes and infections.
Therefore, they have specifically addressed this problem on their packing. I must say, this is amazing marketing.
Free of hazardous chemicals
Where other diaper companies make claims of chemical free diapers, Patanjali Shishu Care Diaper is 100% free from all such chemicals.
In this diaper, natural herbals such as neem and aloe-vera have been used.
For the betterment of baby’s skin, Patanjali has used cotton with the magical gel.
The absorption capacity of this diaper is amazing. I tested it with saline water.
Believe me, as soon as I poured some water, the diaper immediately absorbed it and in just a few minutes, the inside surface (of the diaper) was completely dry.
For checking the claims of 8 to 12 hours of (external sheet’s) dryness, I left this diaper in wet state for 12 to 14 hours.
You would not believe, but even after such a long period, its outer sheet was not wet or dirty; no wetness at all.
Ease of wear
Like other pants-style diapers, Patanjali shishu care diaper is also very easy to wear. This diaper can be worn like pants.
Changing it is equally easy and you can change it like any pant. But if the diaper (due to stool or urine) becomes much messy, then ripping off is the safest solution.
To do that, you can rip it off from the sides.
This is not only going to protect your clothes, but the bed-sheets as well.
Once done, keep in mind that you are not supposed to flush this diaper in the toilet. You must dispose it off it properly in the trash.
Smell of chemicals
As I said in the beginning, besides problems like rashes and infections, many parents reject the idea of using a diaper because of the chemical smells.
In this diaper, you won’t face any such problem. Patanjali is known for its Ayurveda. In other words, no such chemicals are used that can harm your infant’s skin.
Things I disliked in Patanjali's Baby Care Diaper
Becomes heavy after wetting
In comparison to the Pampers Baby Dry Pants, Patanjali shishu care diapers gets heavy and bent downwards, once wet.
This causes a lot of discomfort to the baby and because of this heaviness, I personally experienced incidents of leakage, as well.
In comparison to other pant styled diapers, I personally feel that the length of this diaper is not right.
As I mentioned earlier about heaviness, it starts sliding downwards, once wet and heavy. A little extension in the length will be a good thing.
Protection from the elastic bandage
In Patanjali Shishu Care Diaper, no protection has been given from the inconvenience caused by the elastic band.
Once the diaper is wet and heavy, the elastic strip gets tight. Now, because there is no paper layer to protect the child from the inner pressure (around his legs) of that tightness, the child has to deal with associated discomforts.
In this case, a paper layer that can cover the bandage and save the child from having marks on the skin, is highly required.
In addition, this strip works like a lock around legs and is helpful in locking the wetness around the legs in the diaper.

Consumption is high
Because this diaper gets heavy once wet, so you need to change it more often. Due to heavy diapers, babies cry a lot. I strongly believe, this is going to increase both consumption and investment on diapers. In other words, you are going to need a lot more Patanjali Shishu Care Diapers.
Overall, my experience with Patanjali Shishu Care Diaper was just fine. Because of the mentioned drawbacks such as price, heaviness, texture etc., I am not completely satisfied. Most importantly, despite being a new product, company has not offered any price relaxation.
Now, my question is, why would I buy this product at a price, when I am paying the same (price) for a product with which I am completely satisfied?
