The Tank Insert Set

$13.00 +260pts

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.

2 inserts per set (1 Small + 1 Large).

IMPORTANT NOTE: In our efforts to reduce waste and use materials that would otherwise end up in landfills, the tank print is a random print and does NOT match the diaper print. We can not exchange tank prints unless there is a product defect. Thank you for your understanding and for helping us strive toward greener earth for all! 🌏

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 battle-tested recipe of charcoal, bamboo and our Bamboo Stay-Dry Liners aided with PUL, join forces to form the ultimate wetness-fighting machine.

Bullet-proof leak protection

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. The Tank is like a diaper within a diaper.

Win the war on stains

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

Feeling out-gunned by your baby’s ability to fill a diaper?

The best combo for leak-fighting, standard issue.

A go-to strategy for many Lil Helper veterans was 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.

Who says you can’t be both a fierce warrior and fashion monger?

Fierce and funky

At Lil Helper, we are suckers for any opportunity to rock a great print. That’s why we are pumped about the cute PUL prints you will find on the bottom of each Tank insert set. Plus, like any good soldier, these bad boys are all about the element of surprise. You will get a random print with every set.

K, cool, but why “the Tank”?

Because they are the best weapon for freedom-fighters doing battle with pooplosions, diaper leaks, and rashes.

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 what else would you call an insert that can hold 300 ml of moisture without breaking a sweat and be hardy enough to bear year over year of abuse - The Tank!

The tank will let your baby sleep for 12+ hours without a change and will do it while looking pretty!

When you are eyeballs deep in the trenches of parenthood things are chaotic but until the ceasefire comes, enjoy every moment of both the struggles and the snuggles and know that Lil Helper has your six both on and off the battlefield.

Beautiful Addition

Below is my review for the diaper but it honestly is the same for these inserts. Don't wait get set up ahead of time and feel confident about your purchase. I believe this is also a small shop that we can support.

So I purchased the diapers for my daughter who is giving birth to her second child. With the cost of everything at all time ridiculous levels she decided to go this route this time. The expense of diapers even at a good price is nothing to be excited about. She researched everything thoroughly and settled on these. She purchased the first order and her and I absolutely love everything about them! They are adorable! Made with an amazing quality and we are excited for the new one to arrive to begin using them. I'll have to update later about that but we are both quite sure at this point we will be quite happy. Between us we have purchased three sets of these beautiful diapers. I agree with another reviewer, don't wait go on and get some!

These are SO absorbent and clean up so well. 100% worth it and so much better than disposable diapers!

Adorable and So Worth It

These inserts are a must have. They work so well, that I only need to change the cover once a day, and that’s when I put my baby in a disposable at night. They don’t leak urine at all, and I very rarely have issues with the cover getting dirty with poo. I have like 4 or 5 sets of liners per cover because they’re just that good.

The best inserts!

The tank inserts are by far the best ones. We use the charcoal ones as well, but the tanks hold more, plus I like that I can see how much pee is in the diaper vs relying on how heavy it feels.

Get a few extra of these

If you're thinking of trialing the nappy u recommend getting 4 of these. I ordered 1 and couldn't get a good feel for the trial at home without more of these. Once I learned how to set it up its a breeze mostly (still perfecting my technique). When ordering to the UK it takes 3-4 weeks. So UK residents please order however many you can
