To remedy a diaper rash, pediatricians recommend to air-out your child's bum and to keep it dry. Our Charcoal fabric keeps your baby feeling completely even after a full-night of use. This stay-dry ability makes Lil Helper's Charcoal Cloth Diaper ideal for use during a diaper rash and preventing further breakouts. Most parents use it as a nap or night-time diaper.
The Mayo Clinic says that: “diaper rash is commonly linked to continuously wet or infrequently changed diapers, diarrhea, and using plastic pants to cover diapers.”
All of these issues surrounding irritant diaper dermatitis (IDD) or diaper rash can be prevented by using our Charcoal Cloth Diaper. Here's how:
Keep Your Baby Feeling Dry: The charcoal inserts can hold more than 180 ml of liquid and the great part is that your child still feel's dry. Keeping your child’s skin dry is the best way to remedy diaper rashes- charcoal's wicking ability let’s you do just that.
Let’s 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 Charcoal Cloth diaper is the next-best-thing to this.
Rash Creams Not Necessary: 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.
I used my Lil Helper charcoal diapers day and night, but nighttime is definitely my favourite time to use them! I find my little one can go up to 8 hours with the charcoal diapers before needing a change over night. I've had minimal leakage and the inserts barely feel damp after using them overnight, which is great for my little one's bum. Highly recommend charcoal diapers to all of my fellow mom friends.

First off, the customer service is #AMAZING and we received our favourite mint charcoal diaper as a gift and we just fall in love each time we put these on our son! Surprisingly, I absolutely love the way the dolls print looks on him as well! These diapers are so easy to use and last an incredibly long time!! #LilHelperLove #ClothdiaperingMadeEasy Sophia and Tamara on 5th Jun 2015
This is the first diaper we tried and have been happy with it! The cover is not bulky and is very thin and soft. I like the charcoal one as it is soft and easy to clean and dry. Annie on 31st May 2015
Honestly, I love these equal to the bamboo for absorption. They have never leaked. The only advantage to these is maybe they don't need liners ? I'm switching from another brand so I will be buying more! Elaine on 27th May 2015
These are by far the easiest and best cloth diapers ever!! We love them and just how easy they are to use and clean. In fact grandma has no problem putting them on either! They are reliable, long lasting, and super cute! These are the first and last diapers we will ever try! Sophia on 27th May 2015
We've been using these since my daughter was 2 months old! She's now 7 months. When we first purchased diapers, we went with 2 Canadian companies, one of them being lil helpers. We prefer the fit and convenience of lil helpers so we've put our other brand aside for now and are slowly increasing our collection on lil helpers. We are now up to 15! They keep her dry, without rashes even when teathing. I can't complain! Only recomendation I might make is although these are designed as a one stop shop for diapers, maybe consider making a newborn size for thos extra small babies until they fully fit in the regular ones. That was our reason behind waiting until she was 2 months, before then, they were too big even on the smallest settings.
Thanks lil helpers!!! Julie Durocher on 26th May 2015
I love how these diapers look, feel and fit! I have used them with a newborn all the way up to a preschooler for night time. They make great night time diapers and I've never had a leak! jacqueline scifres on 24th May 2015
These are perfect for over night, my heavy wetter has yet to have a leak, and the charcoal is so soft I'm sure his little booty is in heaven! sabreena on 22nd May 2015
The first time we purchased these diapers was for our first baby, when he was battling a diaper rash. They really did help to clear it up and keep his bum drier! Now that our second baby has arrived we ordered several more - they are the BEST for overnight, obviously awesome throughout the day too, and they even fit her at 4 weeks old (11 lbs).
We are SO happy with them, and are telling all our friends who are moms to be to give them a try too! Awesome baby shower gift too! Unknown on 11th May 2015
I love these diapers! The charcoal absorbs so well, and I appreciate the option to use a single or double pad. The micro fleece inside and the exterior cover is the sofest of all the diapers I've tried. The snaps inside are so easy to use and keep the pad in place like a dream. Overall a very well made diaper. Wish my entire stash was made up of these. Sarah Lynn on 5th May 2015
The charcoal diapers are like magic super diapers! It's hard to tell when the little one is even wet! I'm loving the ease and convenience of the snap in inserts too! I'd highly recommend these for you little ones & for the sanity of moms and dads everywhere! Tasha on 25th Apr 2015
Lovely looking and great fitting nappy. Love the ease of the poppers to fit the inserts in and take them out. Makes drying really fast. Very happy. Unknown on 26th Mar 2015
I love using these for the night time. My guy is a heavy wetter and sleeps for a 10-12 hour cycle. I just change the insert midway through the night to another charcoal set and that's it! Dry bum with zero diaper rash. He wakes up happy and so do I. The only time I had a leak was when I forgot to change the insert. Unknown on 13th Mar 2015
The LH charcoal diapers are our favourite diapers because they wick away moisture so well! Definitely our go to diaper as it helped relieve our babe's dry skin from using disposables. kirstienne on 25th Feb 2015
From prep to drying to fit to overnight use these have been fantastic! They only require one wash cycle to prep, they dry super fast, they absorb a large quantity of pee!!!! My son is a pretty heavy wetter and I've never had a diaper that can go more than a few hours without feeling wet. This was a completely different and exciting experience. So much so that I bought another set of 3 a week later so that I can have enough in rotation for every night plus spares. Tijana on 2nd Feb 2015
We have just started using the cloth diapers with our 8lb baby (they didn't fit from birth because he was 6lbs 4oz) and the charcoal diapers have been great. If the baby sleeps longer than 3 hours and we can't change him, however, they tend to leak so we have to keep on top of diaper changes. Unknown on 30th Dec 2014
This was my first cloth diaper experience so I don't really have another brand to compare to.
- An unexpected advantage was that they make great swim diapers, they have been awesome for that!
- Tried both styles and found the charcoal to be a MUCH better product. Absorbs and breaths better and drys much quicker when hung to dry. The cotton ones bunch up and stain I find ( breast milk poo comes out super easy in the sun...not so easy when its too cold to hang to dry, not a problem with the charcoal)
- Find that I have to change baby hourly to avoid leaks, kind of a pain when I could easily go 2 or 3 hours during the day with a disposable - would certainly never trust them at night!
- Quite bulky, find I have to put baby in clothes that are too big for him to accommodate his big diaper bum, cute, but looks a bit silly with the pant legs too long and wide.
I use them now sparingly on days when we're home all day and am planning on doing laundry that night. Still nice to save some from the landfill, but definitely don't love them as much as I thought I would. ( again awesome for the pool though!!) Renee on 26th Nov 2014
These are my favorite diapers. With a slightly more expensive price tag we only bought enough for night time use and went with bamboo for the rest of our diaper arsenal. Given my time back I think I would have paid the extra money and went with nothing but charcoal. Yes this would have been extreme over kill but these diapers are awesome. On top of keeping diaper rash away, keeping my baby dry through twelve hours of sleep (yes I know I am lucky for that one and very thankful), and fitting a little slimmer than the bamboo liners, they also nearly come out of the washer dry which solves my only complaint about bamboo liners, their insane drying time. Meaghan on 30th Sep 2014
After almost six months of an almost rash we broke up with our nighttime diaper and switched to little helper charcoal. No more red bum !! I appreciate their absorbency and they are now our go to nighttime diaper. The only con was that some of the stitching on some of the inserts was a bit sloppy (and hopefully doesn't fray) - otherwise they would have gotten five stars. Unknown on 26th Aug 2014
These are my fave lil helper times! I now own 4 charcoal. They fit so well, no LEAKING! I love the quality of the fabric. The charcoal bamboo works wonders when my LO HAS A RED BUM. The colors are also so cute! Allison H on 27th Jul 2014
