Jewellery, Starbucks gift cards, itty bitty babies… Often in life, the best things come in small packages. Our Lifesaver Mini is no exception. Sized to be perfect for on-the-go, this pint sized wonder will become a diaper bag staple for travelling with your babe.


You may have heard of our Lifesaver Mat.

The Lifesaver is the show-stealing superhero of our change mat family. It’s flashy. It’s functional. It’s everything implied in its name and more.

But what you may not realize, is that the Lifesaver Mat is actually part of a Dynamic Duo.

Meet the Lifesaver Mini. The lesser known sidekick of the Lifesaver.

Don’t be fooled by its smaller size.

Despite its “faithful sidekick” status, the Lifesaver Mini is the quiet and consistent hero you may not have realized that you need… until now.

Because, let’s face it, not all heroes wear capes.

No capes

It doesn’t take much to save someone’s day.

Feats of strength are not required.

Nor is the body to pull off a spandex “supersuit”.


In fact, heroes come in all shapes and sizes.

It could be a friend.

The one who writes a validating comment on your “Kidz 4 Sale” Facebook post.

It could be a stranger at the grocery store.

The one who spots your toddler’s looming meltdown and subtly clears the aisle for you, like...

Nothing to see here

A flight attendant.

The one who sees a lone parent travelling with their furious womb goblins and swoops in (like a fairy godmother) with snacks, a smile, and an extra set of hands.

Good heavens child

Or your delivery room nurse.

You know, the one who held your barf bag. Brought you ice chips.

The same motherly looking nurse who subtly encouraged you to swear at your partner, while your child was making their unwilling entrance into the world.

In our experience it is, most often, the simplest things that can have the most impact.

And that is the philosophy we used in the design of this heroic little sidekick: The Lifesaver Mini.

A deceptively uncomplicated product, this unsung hero is not to be underestimated. And here’s why:

Waterproof Bottom Layer: The bottom layer of the diaper change mat is lined with a medical grade waterproof material. Now you can lay your baby down for a nap on your single girlfriend’s prized mattress without any worries.

Baby Stays Dry: This thirsty combination of naturally wicking material will absorb a torrent of liquid and will still keep the surface feeling dry.

Safe For Baby & Environment: The waterproof barrier is phthalate, BPA and lead and heavy metal free.

Sized Perfectly: The change mat is sized at a convenient 18’’ x 22’’ (46 cm. x 56 cm). This means it will cuddle snugly into your diaper bag, without causing a “Code Vesuvius” overflowing situation.

One Mat, Multiple Uses: Changing diapers isn’t the only trick this skilled sidekick knows.You can use this mat as a play mat when going to the park or visiting a friend's place. It also serves as a portable sleeping area when going on trips or visiting relatives. Using our crib pad ensures that your child doesn't leave a yellow trail on Granny's tempurpedic mattress.

Pre-Washed; No Shrink: We pre-washed the organic bamboo to get rid of any shrinkage before sewing it with the waterproof barrier.

And YES! It can go into the dryer: This protector doesn't mind the dryer. You can put it into your dryer at regular heat and it (including the waterproof barrier) will be tickety-boo.

Awesome Gift Idea: No matter the sex of the child or whether your friend decides to use disposable or cloth diapers- one thing is for sure- she will most likely change her baby’s diaper every couple of hours. Hey, she might even take the baby out once in a while. Your friend will love this as a baby shower gift. Or a birthday gift. Or if you hate her sense of style and want to give her an elegantly designed, classic piece that does not scream Disney characters.

Parenting itself is complicated enough.


So we at Lil Helper do our best to put simple but impactful tools in the hands of our customers.

With straightforward but mighty products like the Lifesaver Mini, you can be the hero who is prepared to tackle any crisis you may encounter in the pursuit of parenting.

Bonus: The Lifesaver Mini can be used as a cape.

So the next time you circumvent childrearing chaos, tie that bad boy around your neck and strike your best “I am a superhero mom/dad” pose.

    I love that there are two sides to choose from, the charcoal side is so soft and the waterproof side is excellent for an easy clean! The size is also perfect! I can change my baby anywhere its most convenient, in the bassinet, on the change table, on the couch! Sometimes there just isn’t time to put baby in the ideal spot for a change and this change pad fixes that!

    Lil Helper Lifechanger Mat

    Loved this fun perk included in the purchase of the Day Pack! 🙂
    It’s a bit bulky, so I don’t bring it everywhere all the time, but it’s preferred for the soft and warm charcoal against my baby’s skin as opposed to the cold flat mats that tend to come with some diaper bags – though more compact.

    My Favourite Change Mat

    This product is great! I love that you can use either side of the mat but I adore how soft the charcoal side is. The fact that’s it’s waterprrof is also amazing as I can’t count how many times my little one has made a mess during a change..its absorbancy has saved the day for sure!

    so soft!!

    Love this little change mat so much. Cute pattern and the softest place for a little booty to rest during a change.

    Love how quick it dries!

    I love this change pad so much because if there is an accident it dries almost instantly! It’s not like other change pads where the pee just dribbles off and onto whatever surface you were protecting… I have one change pad that pools the pee and then your baby is essentially lying in a pee puddle! Absorbent change pad is the way to go!!!

    Favourite Change Mat

    This is my favourite change mat (so much so I bought two!) I love the charcoal bamboo absorbent side that catches accidents during changes. It washes up great and stays super soft. Easy to pack for on the go. I would recommend it to anyone!

    best change mat!

    I love using this mat on my change pad at home! I keep it on the business end and wash it when I wash my diapers – cuts down on the amount I need to wash my change pad cover by far!

    Perfect for home and on the go!

    I love this changing mat. At home I either change my baby on the pack and play that doesn’t need a cover or I change him on his crib. This mat lets me change him without worrying about the sheets or mattress when he inevitably pees way past his diaper. He’s not even three weeks old and this mat has already saved his bedding more than once. It’s also the right size to throw into the diaper bag on the rare occasion we leave the house!

    so handy everywhere!

    I got this change mat to use around the house to put the baby on, not really for changing diapers. Either on the bed or on the couch, it prevents accidents from damaging the bedding & furniture. No more worrying about spit ups! The mat is easy to wash and care for too.

    One star off because I wish it was a little bit bigger. Even as a diaper change mat, my baby is already spanning the length of the mat (she’s really tall for 3m, but I would want this mat to last for a couple of years).

No FAQs for this product.

    "I bought this thinking it might be handy from time to time, but it has ended up having so many uses! It washes easily, dries quickly, and of course it looks super cute."

    "I love the charcoal changing mat (Lifesaver Mini)! I use them at every diaper change as a reusable way to protect my furniture and easily clean up messes. I can’t tell you how many times my daughter has peed again as soon as I took her diaper off, but this makes it no big deal. I just swap out the pad, finish changing her, and throw it in the laundry! I now own 5 of these mini mats and also used them while I was pregnant in the car and around the house. They work great for any situation where you could use a puppy pad, but they are so much better for the environment!!!"

    "I love this mat on the go, it's nice and compact and serves so many purposes! I can put it in the stroller seat if my kids are wet from the splash pad, or change them in comfort when out and about. I can toss it over them to keep warm if it's chilly out or put on a pillow to keep wet hair from soaking the pillows! Seriously the uses are endless and they are too cute =)"

    "I love these mats, they stay put when I use them on the bed. I also love to use it to line the stroller to protect it from messy little ones. It’s the best for changes on the go as it is thicker so baby is not against the hard surface. There are so many uses I am sure I have yet to discover."

    "Love it! These mats are great for snack time, hanging outside, covering a little one on a chilly day and of course diaper changes which is a lot more than I could say about other change mats I have come across :P"

    "We got a free (very flimsy, cheap and small) change mat with our diaper bag. I don't even know if you could call it a change mat once you compare it to the Lil Helper's one! Now that we have this change mat from Lil Helper's it has CHANGED our lives! We take it everywhere and use it in all sorts of ways. It really is a must-have item for every family. "

    "Very pleased with the quality of this product, the customer service I received, and the patterns! I’m not a cloth diaper user but I’m extremely impressed with this companies dedication and quality to/ of their brand. Definitely will continue to buy. This mat is perfect size for my diaper bag! I bought it in conjunction with a travel wet bag so I could store it in there if it gets dirty. My next purchase will definitely be the larger change mat. So pleased!! "

    "I love these diapers so much that I hug them all the time... after laundry obviously. My 5 month old must love them too since he always says "groo groo" when I put a new one on. The material is so soft and it doesn't leave pressure marks on his legs. This company is wonderful with an exceptional customer service. Lil Helper shares many of my values which makes it the number one company for me. "

    "I use this EVERYDAY, everywhere, and always had it in it. It’s absolutely amazing change pad! And fits perfectly in my backpack that’s not a diaper bag, because it’s all fabric (with PUV on the inside) so you can fold it in anyway! Love it! "
