Lasts all night

Finding an overnight setup can be a challenge for even the most experienced cloth diaper parent. Our Overnight insert will last 10-12 hours. This takes the guess-work out of finding a night time diaper that won’t have your babe waking up looking like they just hit the beach.

ALL the absorbency!

You get 8 layers of absorbency in our Overnight inserts. So whether your baby is filling it with pee all night, or you need a quick solution when they spill juice everywhere, these babies should do the trick.

Leaks on lock.

If all the absorbency wasn’t enough to make these the perfect nighttime solution, the built-in leak stopping features sure are. There is an extra gusset sewn into the legs and a waterproof layer of PUL on the underside to keep all the moisture in baby’s diaper, where it belongs.

Worried about baby feeling wet?

Sleep soundly knowing their diaper is stay-dry

A lot of babes will wake up at night because they feel uncomfortable in a wet diaper. And while we can’t entirely blame them for that, it can leave you consuming caffeinated beverages at an alarming volume the next day. The charcoal fabric of our Overnight Inserts is completely stay-dry. The only way you will even know it is wet in the morning is by the weight of the diaper (which will also be alarming).

Two for the price of one.

Two inserts for custom absorbency.

To say that Lil Helper is a bit “much” might be the understatement of the century but we have found that, often, more is actually more. Maybe it’s because we deal with products for little beings who produce MORE liquid that seems possible. It is also why we decided to include two inserts in every Overnight Insert set. A large insert that does the heavy lifting and then a smaller insert that can be left flat, folded, placed strategically, or taken out entirely depending on the needs of you and your tiny moisture maker.

Convinced your kid is part fire hydrant?

Great for heavy wetters or older babes.

Like, seriously, where does all the pee come from? It doesn’t seem possible that they have room for so much in such a tiny package. So if the peeing power of your little one is starting to overpower their diapers, these inserts may help. If your kiddo is over 18 months or a super soaker extraordinaire, then we suggest you give these a try. Some other great wetness-thwarting solutions include our Tank inserts or Boosters.

Getting your baby sleeping through the night is often one of our earliest and most daunting goals as parents. And while we can’t guarantee that our Overnight Inserts will stop your baby from deciding that a 2am dance party is a good idea, we can promise it won’t be because they woke up wet.

Newbie Guide

The overnight inserts will hold approximately 300 ml of liquid! If you find you have a heavy wetter and a heavy sleeper, you may need to add some extra boosters for added absorbency. This is especially true if your little one is one of those rare babies that sleep 10-12 hours uninterrupted, yes we see you, yes we are jealous!
Your overnight inserts can be washed with all your other diaper laundry on warm. We do recommend hand rinsing your diapers first thing in the morning, this is because when there is that much pee in a diaper for that long ammonia can start to form. Hand rinsing any pee out first thing after that long, hopefully sleep filled night, will help your inserts stay fresh. Hang dry or dry on low!

Sleep through the night!

My girls are - to put it delicately - PEE MACHINES. Who knew 12 pound babies could produce so much pee? This was problematic when they started sleeping more than a few hours at a time overnight, but once I started using these overnight inserts, they’re sleeping longer and no leaks! These bad boys hold A LOT of liquid, which is just what I needed.

Hey Kelsey,
As fellow parents, we know sleep is king and it is a dream come true knowing we can help your family get a little more rest!
A peeing baby is a healthy baby, and a well rested parent is a healthy parent - so we designed our overnight inserts to meet both needs. They soak up 300mL of liquid! Thank you for sharing your experience.
So glad we can help you and your darling pee machines. Please reach out to delight@lilhelper.ca if you ever need any help at all with our products.
Sending you best wishes for many restful nights ahead,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper

So absorbent

These are the only diapers that can survive over 10 hours for us. I fold the small insert and keep it in the front for extra absorption. I like the idea of the extra gusset, but they do kind of flatten out after a wash or two so I'm not sure how much extra protection it's providing.

Hi Kay!
It is great to hear that our overnight inserts are working for your family - as a parent, sleep is life!!
Thanks for sharing your experience and the feedback on the gusset. We are always looking for ways we can create better solutions for folks and feedback like this is super valuable to us, it helps us grow!
With gratitude,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper

Annie McDevitt
just what we needed

My 7 month old was waking up in the night after having wet through her pjs and her bedsheets. With the overnight inserts she stays dry until the morning, she sleeps better and I don't have to change her bedsheets at 3am. Its a win win!

Annie that is so awesome!! Is there anything better in the world than sleep? I don't think so.

Only a sleep-deprived parent can understand why developing the best diaper and insert system is so important, it's truly why our diapers 'designed by rocket scientists' exist!

Did you know we published a children's book called Sammy Won't Sleep, it reads in part 'being dry helps babies sleep, so we named them Lil Helper!'

Jumping for joy that we could help you get some rest,
Caitlin @ Lil Helper

Stay dry sleep all night

It does what it says on the tin. We have 2 sets that we rotate alongside just adding a booster in. These can last a whole night even with 2 or 3 feeds (though we still like to change after 2 really). They're going to be great for when he sleeps through more but at the minute we find the booster is better just for less bulk on a tiny 8m old since we change after 2 feeds anyway.

Thank you for this feedback! It really helps us as we continue working on products to offer solutions to families like yours. Sleeping through the night truly is a game changer you're right... hoping that day comes for you and your little one soon!
