Continuing our series of diaper reviews, today we would like to review the Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants. Before starting the review, let me tell you that we are already done with four other diapers such as Mammy Poko Pants Standard, Patanjali Baby Care Diapers, Huggies Wonder Pants and Pampers Baby Dry Pants. If you have not been through those articles or related videos, then we suggest you please check them.
Undoubtedly, choosing a right diaper for your little one is nothing less than a challenge and one single mistake can invite endless troubles including permanent skin marks. While you have to keep your budget in mind, on the other hand, you can not overlook other important aspects like diaper’s absorption capacity, skin compatibility, durability, and consumption and price of course. We take special care of these aspects in our baby product reviews. So, let’s start reviewing Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants.
Things that I liked in Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants
I would like to start my this review from packing as I did with my previous reviews. If I have to summaries Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants’ packing in one, then without any hesitation that one word will be, “awesome.”
I was little worried about the way they were packed.
But, everything was okay. No damaged diapers. All 54 diapers were in perfect condition.
In addition to the branding, with its packing, the company tried to give an answer to every question that can hit a buyer’s mind, at the purchase counter.
There could be questions about absorption capacity, anti-rash, weight and size suitability, protection from leakage, comfort, etc.
Just above the packing, you will see a polythene strip. Using this strip you can hold this diaper bag like a bag. Apart from branding, on the packing, you will find some other important information such as the number of diapers, sizes, and diaper anti-rash claim.
At the top left of the packing, you will see Himalaya Logo.
On the bottom left, you will see information about the size and suitable weight of the pack you purchased. The information on how to use the diaper can be found on the right side of packing. Next, to that, you will see directions for wearing and disposing of it.
Being a pant style diaper, you can wear and change it like a pant.
There are some safety instructions, as well. I must say, you should follow them as these tips can ensure the safety of the baby.
You can see information about available diaper sizes and suitable weight. I must say, this information about weight and size is extremely important as it can help you choose the best-fit diaper for your baby. Perhaps you do not know if a diaper is not destroyed properly, it takes hundreds of years to recycle it.
Keeping the seriousness of this matter in mind, the company purposely printed information about the right way to destroy the diaper. I highly encourage you all to follow these instructions for the betterment of our environment.
Texture wise, Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants are exceptionally beautiful and colorful.
The use of purple and white color gives an extraordinary look to the diaper. The fabric used to make the diaper is soft and high quality. This fabric ensures full air circulation.
We know baby’s skin in contact with wet diapers for a longer duration is the main reason behind rashes. So, it is actually good if a diaper is airy.
Keeping the delicate skin of the child in mind, the inner layer of the diaper is also made very soft.
Just to differentiate the diaper’s front part from the back, company intentionally introduced a slight difference in the printing. On the front side of the diaper, you will be able to see the Himalaya baby care logo.
Whereas, on the back side of the diaper, you won’t be able to see any such logo or identification mark.
Apart from this, there are two yellow stripes that run from the front middle part of the diaper to the rear middle part.
These two lines are actually wetness indicators. When your child wets the diaper, these yellow stripes turn to green. In a way, you get to know when is the right time to change the diaper.
Use of Aloe Vera and Yasad Bhasma
We all know about the benefits of skin from Aloe Vera. In place of harmful chemicals, it was very useful for the skin of children and adults.
Fitting is very good
I would like to give full marks to the fitting of Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants. The elastic band used in the waist area is very flexible. I believe, the waist band’s flexibility is the main reason behind the diaper’s fitting.
According to the weight of my baby, the size of this diaper is perfect. Earlier, with one of my other diapers, I faced some issues; size was not matching the weight.
But with this diaper, I had no such bad experiences. The elastic band of this diaper is very flexible and gives a good fit.
Due to this, the diaper becomes as stretched as required according and offers a perfect fit.

Things that I did not like in Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants
I am not happy with the absorption capacity of Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants. Once wet, it takes a little longer time to dry. For the confirmation, we conducted a saline water test and the results were not as good as expected.
Right after pouring some saline water on the diaper, we (me and my assistant) noticed that the water was not immediately absorbed. You can see the wetness on my hand.
This was not expected. I believe, this is not only going to cause inconvenience to the baby, but there are strong possibilities of having rashes. In any way, this is not acceptable, especially when it is about baby’s delicate skin.
The diaper becomes heavy by wetting
This is a very big problem, and I must say most of the diapers I tested have failed me on this (except Pampers baby dry pants).
Let me tell you, a wet diaper that becomes heavy after wetting, is not only going to disrupt the comfort of the baby (in the area near the thighs) but will increase the chances of leakage, as well.
I experienced this trouble with Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants. This diaper not only becomes heavy after use but also bents downward.
Not leak proof
The company claims that this diaper is leak-proof. But my experience is the opposite. During the testing, I sensed wetness on the sidewalls. And this makes me feel that there are high possibilities of leakage from these edges.
Not to forget that this is that part of a diaper, which is very close to the inner legs. Any wetness or tightness around this area is definitely going to disturb a baby. So, I highly doubt about company’s claim of a leak-proof diaper.
No protection layer around legs
Earlier, I had reviewed four other diapers, but apart from Pampers Baby Dry Pants, I did not find this protection layer in any diaper.
For your information, I would like to mention that this not so important looking paper layer is actually very important.
This protection layer offers two benefits. First of all, this protection layer helps in locking the wetness within the diaper. Secondly, it protects a baby from any kind of stretch marks around his legs as a result of tightness caused by a heavy wet diaper.
You can see how my baby is having trouble because of this.
A False claim of no rashes
I would like to disagree with this claim of the company. Here I would like to tell you that every baby’s skin is different and when it comes into the contact with any chemical, it is bound to respond differently.

I personally did not face any skin issues after using this diaper. However, a few females friends living in my neighborhood have confirmed that their child had to face rashes after the use of Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants. And this is when they switched from Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants to some other diaper.
I never had such issues because I am so habitual of changing my baby’s diaper every two hours, regardless of wetness.
Consumption is high
Due to its poor absorption capacity, the diaper becomes very wet. And, to protect your baby from skin troubles like rashes, you have to change Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants every 2 hours. In such a situation, you can imagine the consumption of these diapers. This increase in consumption is definitely going to affect your monthly budget.
There is no information about the material used in the diaper
Although every small information related to the product has been printed on packing, there is no information about the product ingredients. In a competitive market, where every brand is trying to make every possible claim (through their product packaging) to lure a customer, mentioning nothing about the ingredient is very strange. Personally, I would surely love to check the ingredients of a product before buying it.
Per diaper price is high
I am also not impressed with the price. Doing a little math will let you know that buying Himalaya Total Care Baby Pants will actually make you pay more. The per piece price of this diaper is a little higher than other diapers available in the market. Where other diapers of this size are priced near 10 to 14 rupees per piece, this diaper is priced at 16 rupees/piece. I believe, keeping the drawback like absorption capacity, leakage and rashes, I would not buy this product.
