Looking to add some firepower to your diapering arsenal? Want to ensure that you are always packing enough heat to subvert diaper disasters? Meet The Tank. The poop-suppressing, leak-quelling, bomb-proof insert that will thwart even the most sophisticated battle-plans from your heavy-wetting little warrior.

Parenting is a many-faceted experience.

Some days it’s giggles, snuggles, and breathing in that inexplicably intoxicating baby smell.

Some days it’s making tough choices.

And some days it feels like walking into battle.

Especially in the early years of parenthood. When you are grim-faced and determined, but also lack confidence.

Because, let’s face it, even though you did some pre-war basic training…

...No amount of parenting magazines and Googling can prepare you for life in the trenches of parenting.

And there is nothing like a few sleepless nights in the foxhole (the small crawl space between the crib and the dresser), with an adversary of your own creation, to make you feel hardened and battle-weary.

Now, the team at Lil Helper are a generally pacifistic bunch.
As loveable tree-huggers, we shy away anything more violent than an aggressive handshake.

But if anything is going to get us riled, it is an SOS from allied parents on the front-lines of childrearing.

And when we hear about fellow freedom-fighters doing battle with poopsplosions, diaper leaks, and rashes…

Well, let’s just say...

And even though the enemy has access to weapons of mass destruction…

Lil Helper has designed a whole arsenal of products to make you battle ready.

Including our newest inserts. We have simply dubbed them, The Tank. Durable and bullet-proof, The Tank will help level the playing field when you are feeling out-gunned by your little one’s ability to fill a diaper.

Here’s why:

Best of both worlds: A go-to strategy for many Lil Helper veterans, is to combine a small charcoal insert with a large bamboo insert, for maximum leak-fighting efficacy. It works amazingly well because the fast-absorbing charcoal insert quickly grabs and wicks away moisture. It then transfers it to its thirsty bamboo brother-in-arms, who is better equipped to shoulder the liquid load. The problem is that this mix and match approach leaves mismatched inserts. We believe in leaving no man (or insert) behind, so we have made this winning combo standard-issue from here on out.

Hidden Secret Weapons: Though it may not appear as formidable as its name implies, the tank is packed with plenty of hidden features to help it win the war on wetness. A layer of our Bamboo Stay-Dry Liner has a covert placement on the bottom of the small insert. This helps to distribute moisture more easily between inserts and keeps the baby feeling dry.

Bullet-Proof Bottom Layer: [Our legal department (my great aunt Jums and her 3 cats) has informed us that we cannot call our inserts bulletproof anymore because a certain someone made an armour of our inserts and went to play paintball and got injured. Steve I am so livid at you for making us lose this great marketing opportunity.] Okay, so it isn’t actually bullet proof. BUT it is lined with PUL, making it waterproof. This means that moisture stays in the inserts, letting you reuse covers and ensuring that there is no unwanted seepage.

Win the War on Stains: We all have haunting flashbacks of that stain we just couldn’t defeat. With the Tank you need not worry. All front-line fighting materials that face the business end of your baby are coloured to hide any battle scars.

Fierce and Funky: I know that some folks don’t fancy camo, but we are here for any opportunity to rock a great print. That’s why we are pumped about the cute prints you will find on each Tank insert set. Who says you can’t be both a fierce warrior and fashion monger? Just to be super clear, the prints on your Tank inserts will be a surprise. You cannot choose or request any specific prints.

As parents ourselves, we know that when you are eyeballs deep in the trenches of parenthood things are noisy, chaotic, and tiring.

But we also know that the cease-fire will come before you know it and you may miss your warrior days when it does.

Until then, enjoy every moment of both the struggles and the snuggles and know that Lil Helper has your six both on and off the battlefield.

    Game Changer

    The new tank inserts were definitely a game changer. Before we were using the bamboo insert set plus a hemp booster and still holding our breath if we hit two hours between changes that her outfit wouldn’t be wet. But now we can easily get up to 3 hours before having to do a diaper change! They are also a lot of thinner allowing for a far less bulky and better fitting overnight setup. We get 13 hours in overnight no problem!

    Replaced 4 inserts

    The tank inserts have replaced my night time set up! I used to use a Lil Helper booster, bamboo insert, cotton insert and a thirsties hemp insert… Now we use the tank with a booster!

    Game Changer!

    These inserts are absolutely amazing! They’re thinner than the standard bamboo, dyed to avoid stains and backed with an adorable PUL print. My son has yet to leak when we use these inserts. Compression leaks are also a thing of the past and I feel more confident using cloth outside our home. I’ve become a complete Tank snob and tend to only reach for diapers with these inserts. Well done Lil’ Helper! You’ve outdone yourselves again 🙂

    Best Inserts Ever!

    These are amazing! They hold a lot! I’m talking overnight with a baby that has a firehose.
    I also love seeing how much more they could’ve held. The BSDL wicks the moisture back and with the blue bamboo you can see where it is wet & where it could’ve held even more!
    The patterns on the back of the PUL are great, I love looking at them. I’m one of the lucky ones that’s received the “Thank you print” and it brings me joy when I see it.

    Love them!

    We’ve been using the tank insert for a few months now and have loved them! They are super absorbent AND trim. They are our go to for night time and have been working beautifully with no leaks on our 1.5 year old 👌

    These tank inserts are my new favourite!! I can leave the house with my baby using the tank insert set and know that he won’t leak through! The PUL on the back and the extra absorbency is so amazing! Plus the way the stay dry liner is sandwiched in the middle ensures the pee is evenly distributed even to the back of the diaper! These are must have inserts!

    Wow these are an overnight gamechanger!

    We recently picked up some of the tank inserts to use with our old style LilHelper diapers for overnights. Our baby has been able to sleep 10-12 hours with no leaks. We use a full tank (both small and large), a booster on top, and a stay dry liner on top of that. It’s a magical combination that equals a full nights sleep for mom and dad. Highly recommended!

    The set is truly a TANK

    Wow. This set is a beast! I have a heavy wetter and I’m amazed with how well this insert sets hold up overnight. I have a 6.5 month old heavy wetter, and he usually would only soak the first half of a bamboo set with a booster. the BSDL on the back of the small charcoal helps wick the moisture to the back of the diaper, making it possible to overnight cloth leak free!!!

    Awesome inserts

    They are now a part of my night time cloth diapering solution. My son was leaking out of other options I tried but the tank paired with a Lil Helper booster and no leaks after a full night of sleep.

    Perfect for our night combo

    These inserts combined with the boosters in a new style cover are an awesome night time combo. Three nights straight cover was still dry and the inserts contained all the urine my son threw at them all night. Also the charcoal fleece is oh so soft.
