Lifesaver XL Mat

$95.00 +1900pts

Life is all about balance. Some days, you have it all together. You get a good night’s sleep, you treat your body like a temple, and you have an uneventful enjoyable day with your kiddos. Other days are a write-off from the time your feet hit the ground. The baby wakes you at an hour that should not exist, you treat your body like an active dumpster fire, and your kids turn sensory play into an excuse to go feral. Whether you are experiencing big fun or big chaos, it is good to have big backup. Like our XL everything mat, the Lifesaver XL.

Keeps moisture in its place

The bottom layer of the Lifesaver is lined with a medical grade waterproof material. Now you can lay your baby down for a nap on anything from grandma’s heirloom quilt to the persian rug in the guest room, with no worries! I’m not sure why you would… but you can.

Baby stays dry

Hidden deep in the magical depths of this mat are layers of absorbency that will hide a shocking amount of liquid. Plus the naturally wicking charcoal topper will hide stains and keep everything feeling dry.

Big mat = big potential

The Lifesaver XL is a direct result of the love our customers have for our Lifesaver Original mat. But as great as the OG is, our loyal Lifesaver fans have been yearning for something a lil larger. Sized at 56”x40” the Lifesaver XL takes all the awesome of its predecessor to a bigger size and scale.

We aren’t kidding when we say life-saving...


One Mat, SO MANY Uses 


A play mat when going to the park or a friend's place. Portable sleeping area. Wind-proof stroller cover. Blanket. Mattress Protector. Towel. Sensory bin containment. (Head over to our FB group Lil Helper: Unsnapped and search “lifesaver” to see all the ways our patrons are using this mat… cuz there are A LOT). And the extra surface area on the XL means it has even more life-saving potential.

Easy to use, easy to take care of.


Family Heirloom In The Making


The waterproof barrier is guaranteed to outlast 200 commercial launderings. Your rugged jeans that you spent a whole afternoon picking out and that give you “internet breaking” curves will tear into rags after just 100 washes. And yes! It can go in the dryer too.

Newbie Guide

We recommend washing your Lifesaver XL on a heavy-duty warm cycle with a recommended commercially available detergent. Always line dry when you can, if not please tumble dry it on low! Any time you are dealing with super mega absorbent materials, we recommend avoiding any sort of fabric softener or dryer sheets that can coat the fabric and cause repelling.
Our new XL mats are a bit under 2x the size of our Lifesaver originals!
The design on these things is equal parts simple and genius! There is a waterproof backing that comes in our AH-MAZING prints. Paired with our comfy stay dry charcoal material you find in our beloved cloth diaper inserts. Our charcoal layer is a thirsty combination of naturally wicking material that will absorb a torrent of liquid and will still keep the surface feeling dry.
Of course they can! They are great for putting on your child's bed at night, or even laying over furniture during the beginning phases of potty learning! They are fast to absorb, so they can catch the biggest of accidents that your toddler may throw at them!
Our Lifesaver XL mats are a whopping 57” x 40” The perfect size for just about anything life throws at you!

I saw your videos on TikTok and was intrigued by your products so I ordered two XL Lifesaver Mats (and other items). I gave one mat as a gift, and kept one for myself. I have used it as a blanket - it's very soft, lightweight and warm. My husband and I also use it for "adult activities" - way better than towels and we don't have to worry about the sheets. Very easy to wash and dry. I know I will continue to find other uses for it. I love that every family member can benefit from using this mat, at any life-stage. I have placed another order for an Original Lifesaver Mat for my daughter for "shark week". I may need to buy another one for my dog when she gets older and has incontinence issues. And maybe another one for myself for when I have the same issue ;) Thank you for creating versatile, quality products :)

Wow! Your so awesome. Thank you for taking the time to send this amazing review. We hope you keep finding many great uses for your Lifesaver mats! - Lil Helper Delight


I have these in every size. They serve so many purposes. This one is great as a playmate and protecting furniture when we are visiting others. Wash is easy and it maintains its shape and quality.

Thank you so much for your review, Lindsay ! I am so glad to hear you enjoyed the lifesaver! It truly is a lifesaver! We take pride in our customer service, if there’s anything else we can do, please let us know.

So soft & cushy!

I originally bought the XL for 3 reasons: 1) I wanted it as bedsheet protection during the new-to-me term “Shark Week” 2) Help to avoid sheet stains from a medicated cream I use 3) Keeping the bed dry during sexy times 😏.

The first night I used the Lifesaver I made an absolutely wonderful discovery: It felt like I was sleeping on a cloud, helped reduce some of my chronic pain & allowed me a great night’s sleep! If nothing else, my first good night’s sleep (in forever!) is absolutely worth the price!

Wow Jennifer, that is amazing! Thank you for taking the time to let us know! - Delight team!

So versatile

I love this because it is not just for the babes, but us older humans can use it too! Picnics, blanket, fold it and make it into a pillow!

The fuzzy side and waterproof sides are awesome too! Can’t lose with this one!

Jovita Beyer

I use this as a drop cloth under our babies high chair. Catches everything and can be washed! I know it will have many more uses but this is our favorite currently. Also it's beautiful and vibrant. We have a space Dino's print
