According to the New York Times, a small patch placed at the front of the diaper contains four small, colored squares that each react differently when they make contact with certain proteins, water content or bacteria, Fox news reported.

If the squares change their colors due to any unusual reaction, it is a signaling to parents that something is wrong with their baby's health.

New parents can also download an app, which takes the picture of the colored squares and give parents exact readings of their baby's chemical data.
