The Dark Knight. The twist-off wine cork. The Double-Stuffed Oreo. Sometimes the sequel is better than the original. Our new-and-improved diaper is no different. All the great features you have come to love, with a few new tweaks to take things from awesome to extraordinary.

Clear

In a world that seems to be constantly changing, sometimes we cling to things we know we can count on. 

Morgan Freeman’s soothing voice. 

Your baby’s unfailing ability to unload in a freshly changed diaper. 

Coffee. 

Reliable, unwavering institutions that provide a sense of stability when life goes bananas. Institutions like Lil Helper. An institution dedicated to the pursuit of creating the world’s best poop-catcher.  

Partly because of the amazing feedback we’ve gotten from our customers over the past 10 years. The ones who have relied on our offerings to get them through the ups and downs of bringing littles into the world.  

Partly because we are equal parts optimistic and over-confident.

 

But even the greatest institutions need to keep up with the times. 

Because even though we know Lil Helper is the definition of dependable, we have never claimed to be perfect... 

...But we are always working to get a little closer to that goal. 

That is why we have revisited the product that started it all: our world-famous cloth diapers. 

A heavy dollop of the features you have come to love. A dash of innovation. Bake at 350º for 30 minutes, and you have the recipe for the perfect combination of classic and cutting-edge. 

Check out all the greatness we have baked-right-in to our new poop-catcher formula:

Newfangled Nuances

Backup for Belly-Sleepers: Or boys. Or any baby who has a tendency to flood in the front. We have added a new PUL belly band to the front of our covers to make sure there is no unwanted seepage to interrupt naptime. 

Slightly Fewer Stains: Any parent knows that life with littles means stains. On their clothes. On your clothes. On your drapes. And, sometimes, on your diapers. Stains don’t mean that things are dirty but they can be enough to drive you nuts. And while we can’t do anything about your baby’s habit of painting the dining room with marinara or their ability to spit-up on each of their cutest outfits, our new coloured cover linings will remove one item from the list of things your baby’s bodily functions will ruin. 

Built in fit-help: Getting a good fit is a thorn in the side of cloth newbies and veterans alike. Cloth diapers generally offer a better, more custom fit than disposables but figuring out what that looks like for your babe can involve some trial and error. And just when you have it figured out, in true baby fashion, your little will change shape and you will be back to square one. Our new centre contrast snaps will help. They will make the center of the diaper easy to find for everyone from you to grandma, making it easier to get the perfect fit every time. 

Bomb Proof Inserts: Each new-and-improved diaper comes with the redesigned inserts we have dubbed The Tank. For a full rundown on these bad boys, head to their product page (link. TL;DR version, these things are true game-changers. More absorbent, trimmer, and backed with PUL to double down on the leak-killing powers of Lil Helper diapers. Combine that with their stay-dry properties and stain-free design and you have a new design destined to become an instant classic. 

Classic Components We’d Never Change  

Leaks on lock: It is an undisputed fact that cloth diapers are better at containing the dreading poonami than disposables. And though we’ve always stood by the leak-stopping power of our diapers, our improvements are focused on making sure that your child’s bodily excrements stay in their place (in our diapers).

Cuteness Turned Up to 11: One of the more superficial upsides of cloth diapers with zero practical applications? They are so freaking adorable. With meticulously in-house designed prints and breathtaking solids, we will always consider ourselves on the leading-edge of superficiality… ahem I mean adorable designs. 

Heirlooms in the Making: A less superficial upside? Cloth diapers are reusable. Not just for one baby, but for all your babies. And your sister’s babies. Everything from our premium elastics to our new silicone labels is built to stand the test of time. So when you are done with your diapers, you can pass them along with your primo parenting tips. 

Keeps Your Baby Feeling Dry: Our inserts can hold more than 180 ml of liquid and the great part is that your child still feels dry. Keeping your child’s skin dry is the best way to remedy diaper rashes-charcoal's wicking ability lets you do just that.

Lets You Air-Out Your Baby: Most pediatricians suggest that it is best to let your baby go commando or without a diaper to remedy a diaper rash. Our diapers are the next-best-thing to this. More breathable than disposables, cloth diapers keep baby’s bum cooler and their skin in better shape. 

Eliminates the Need for Rash Creams: Rash prevention creams are supposed to create a water barrier to keep your baby’s skin dry. But before application, if your baby's skin is not thoroughly dry, you could worsen the rash by trapping moisture on your child’s bum. You do not need any rash cream while using our charcoal cloth diapers. Our materials will keep your baby dry and well ventilated without subjecting your child's delicate skin to additional chemicals.

We know that change can be hard. Especially when the thing doing the changing is such a stalwart and steadfast staple in your parenting arsenal. 

But one thing that will never change, is Lil Helper’s belief that less is more and that we would never create or sell something that isn’t worth your investment of time, energy and money. 

So whether you are a die-hard Lil Helper fan, or a newbie afraid of being a “guinea pig” with a new product, rest assured that the changes we’ve made will take your cloth diapering experience from amazing to exceptional. 

After-all we didn’t become an “institution” with just outlandish gimmicks and devilish good looks. 

Our success is built on the solid foundation of the gratuitous use of gifs, poop-jokes, and chocolate-based bribery.

    Very happy with this kit!

    This kit is a great intro to Lil Helpers diapers. I was super impressed with everything and the extras in the package were very nice. My son is small for his age, has a once a day/every other day huge poop, and is a somewhat heavy wetter. As you can imagine, finding a diaper that fits without too much bulk, but still contains everything is hard.

    The cotton liners are SO SOFT. I get excited to use them just because they’re so soft, though they are also absorbent and fit well. The stand out product to me was the charcoal diaper and liners. They are also really soft but they absorb a LOT. I put my son to bed in one and when he woke the next morning, there was no leaking and the diaper still felt mostly dry. Usually his diaper is totally soaked and there’s a huge wet spot right after he wakes up!

    So far both the cotton and charcoal have contained everything he’s thrown at them comfortable and without bulk. I haven’t had a need for the stay dry liners yet since hes still exclusively breast fed, but he’ll be starting solids in a couple of short months and I am confident that they’ll be great. My only wish is that Lil Helper will start selling their inserts without snaps so I can use them with other covers I already had or without the top small insert. I don’t feel comfortable putting snaps against my boys tender areas.

    Overall I’m very happy with everything and I will definitely order again.

    Awesome Way to Start Cloth Diapering

    This Starter Kit has provided me with a great start to cloth diapering. I have been test driving Lil Helper and two other brands of cloth diapers for 2 weeks. I have previously been a devotee of Pampers Sensitive disposable diapers, but wanted to go with a more economical and environmentally friendly way of diapering.

    Both of the diapers in the Kit have been working very well for my 5 month old daughter — both are very absorbant and no leaks! My favorite between the two is the charcoal diaper. I nervously used it overnight (half expecting the worst with a leaky wet baby in th emorning) and had a happy baby 12 hours later when she woke up for her morning nursing! While the diaper was definitely heavy with wetness, it strangely didn’t feel crazy moist, which is a good thing for my daughter’s skin overnight.

    I appreciate the value in this Kit as well, with the additional cotton insert, liners, and the blanket (with very adorable patterns!).

    I have not yet tried using the liners as my daughter so far seems only to poop about once a week. I’m sure once I start solids, I will really appreciate the liners!

    The one thing I find with these, and perhaps all AI2, diapers is that even though you can technically change the inserts and reuse the outer shell, I have never been able to do that — each time I change my daughter’s diaper, the inserts and the shell are all wet! I’ll definitely be ordering more bamboo and charcoal diapers from Lil Helpers. Not sure if I will need extra inserts, given that I am always changing out the entire diaper anyway.

    Amazing little kit!

    What a great idea! This starter kit is perfect for anyone contemplating cloth diapers and even for those seasoned diaper-ers who want to try different types/brands of diapers. Great quality, and a great fit. The charcoal bamboo is hands down my favorite. It’s trim, soft and absorbent (sadly my daycare lost it so my love was short lived!). The only thing that could make this kit better would be the inclusion of a wet bag and some wipes…perhaps that could be the deluxe starter:)

    Very happy

    The products from Lilhelper are great. Very good quality and the fabrics are so soft on baby’s skin. After trying it with the starter pack, I happily put in another order for more. The colours are also beautiful and vibrant.
    It was great to try out different options and I like the charcoal ones best. The diapers hug and move well with my active son. I just wish I found Lilhelper sooner when I first started buying my cloth diaper stash. Now I’m replacing my others with Lilhelpers!

    The customer service is fantastic and the order arrived very quickly.

    2 Starter Kits = Great Value, Great Products

    I love the value in the starter kits. I ordered 2 kits and now I have 4 diapers and 6 liners in my rotation. The diapers are trim and the colours are great. I love seeing my little guy in them! I’m planning on getting a few more charcoal bamboo diapers. They are so soft and they dry very fast.

    There are a lot of snaps on the diapers which I’m not used to since I haven’t used a lot of one-size diapers. I would be interested in trying these in two sizes if the lil’ helper would make them. Still, they fit my 23 pound toddler very well. I have noticed that when the inserts are snapped in the front and back, the insert tends to pull the diaper down a bit more in front. Since I’ve got a boy, I’ll usually not snap the back one and it doesn’t pull. Having said that, there have been no leaks either way.

    The stay dry liners are awesome! The blanket and change pad are a really nice quality and my lucky cousin will get them as a baby gift.

    The customer service from this company is great. Quick response to email, hand-written notes, tea…other companies have a lot to learn from these guys!

  • How do I wash my diapers?

    1. Make sure any solid "stuff" is already out of the diapers and liners before you throw it in the washer. 2. Pre-wash the diapers (short cycle) in warm water using the recommended brand and amount of detergent. Check here. 3. Heavy Duty (longest cycle) warm/cold wash with proper detergent amount. For those who prefer a more visual explanation, check out our video or snazzy infographic. *When it comes to detergent, we realize not one size fits all. You may need/want something other than Tide due to allergies/sensitivities or other personal reasons, but we want to make sure that whatever you choose to use is cloth diaper safe. We use Fluff Love University's resources as they have compiled their vast knowledge of cloth diaper laundry in one place. They have a great detergent index which shows what IS and IS NOT cloth safe. Happy laundering!

  • How do I dry my diapers?

    Short Answer: Line or hang dry the diaper shells and covers when possible, because we love the environment and do want to pay extra electricity bills. Longer Answer: As ecophiles, we would recommend that you line or hang dry our cloth diapers after each wash. But we have families and tight schedules and amazing dryers, too. So if you put our liners in the dryer use the tumble dry setting with medium heat. We recommend that our diapers covers or diaper shells not be put in the dryer, if possible. This is to ensure that the PUL (Polyurethane Laminate) lining which is heat bonded on the inside of the outer layer of our shell (read it again if not clear) is not eroded. The PUL is what makes our diapers waterproof and the less heat it is exposed to the longer it will stay bonded to the fabric. If you absolutely have to put the diaper shells or diaper covers in the dryer do so at a low to medium heat. If you are drying the diapers shells and liners together, remove the diaper shells from the dryer after 10-20 minutes. From our experience, the diaper shells dry out far more quickly as compared to the liners.

  • How Do I Wash my Diapers if I have hard water?

    We figure the first question most of you will have is: Do I have hard water? There are a few ways to test this. This video is my personal favourite. 

    So what is the solutions?  It’s an easy peasy.. Add BORAX or CALGON to your wash.

    1. Once you know your water hardness value take a look at this chart to see what amount of softener is recommended based on your water. 
    2. In most cases they will recommend about ½ cup of softener added to the pre and main washes.
    3. Additionally, some powdered detergents have water softeners that help give a better clean in hard water. If your detergent isn’t proving strong enough, upgrading detergents will also help immensely. 
    4. ‍ If you have hard water, NEVER EVER do an extra rise! Essentially, you’re adding back all those mineral deposits you just cleared out with your new or increased detergent and water softeners. For detailed information about hard water, cloth diapers, and you, we suggest you head over to Fluff Love University.
  • Materials Used In Charcoal Cloth Diapers?

    Our wonderful leader Captain Poopypants AKA Mohammed (Chief Everything Officer) has spent a lot of time researching and working to find the top materials to make good products that are affordable for every family. Here is a quick rundown of what our diaper covers and inserts are made of: 

     

    Covers- Outer layer is PUL and the inner layer is Micro Fleece- both of which are 100% Polyester. Check out the following video detailed explanation on the  covers . ` 

    Charcoal Inserts- Outer layers are Charcoal and inner layers are Microfiber- both of which are 100% Polyester. Check out the following video detailed explanation on the charcoal inserts
