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:
You’ll love our diapers even more once you read this:
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.

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
I love the charcoal diapers because the inserts are slim - slimmer than the other inserts - which makes it much easier to put on a squirmy baby! :) They also absorb a lot but still stay slim, even when soaked. Because they're dark they also clean up really nice and prevent stains. I ordered a few to try at first but liked them so much that I bought more. Unknown on 16th Jun 2014
These are well-made, nice looking diapers. I love how the charcoal eliminates the pee smell so you can reuse the cover longer than a regular fleece lined cover. (I use it at least 3 times before washing.)
This diaper with the charcoal insert did leak for nighttime use, but when I tried the cover over a fitted diaper for night we had no leaks and this cover fit over my fitted diapers better than the covers I had been using.
Since I used prefolds with my first baby, the grandmas are very happy to have an easier-to-use diaper for baby #2. Miranda on 31st May 2014
Initially, we ordered both these and the organic bamboo diapers for our baby but found the charcoal bamboo diapers to be our favorite (and far superior). They are super soft against our baby's skin - he has yet to have any diaper rash, which I attest to the amazing fabric of these diapers - and he just seems more comfortable in these than the odd time we have had him in disposable diapers. These diapers are easy to use, and I was also surprised at how easy they are to clean when used in combination with the bamboo liners. They are very absorbent and never get stinky after washing or drying them...we won't use anything else! Shana on 7th May 2014
I purchased this diaper after my sister recommended I take a look at the website. I ordered 4 to get free shipping (great deal!). The package came with a free cloth wipe, some diaper liners and a personal thank you note. Fabulous!
The diaper is a bit bulky and so it quite large under clothing. I have a skinny baby, so he has quite the bum while wearing it!
He does have VERY sensitive skin (which is why we started cloth diapering when he was a few weeks old). Sometimes when he has a terrible BM he can get little sores. Thankfully these sores clear up quickly with cloth diapers and perhaps a bit of diaper cream (love the liners in the package), BUT just wearing this charcoal bamboo diaper for a few hours, the sores are GONE! So, I have made these diapers our go to for nighttime. Best of all he is a big pee-er and these don't leak (I prepped them 4 times) and they stay dry on the inside! LOVE THAT!
We have also used them when he does have some runny poo and for long car trips where we might not get to a change every 2 hours.
For those reasons, I love this diaper. Of course, I like a less-bulky diaper for every day wear, but these are awesome!
If your baby has sensitive skin or goes all night in one diaper, I highly recommend Lil Helpers Charcoal Bamboo! Courtney on 4th Feb 2014
Diapers look great and are very absorbent. They wash well and dry quickly on the line. We've had a few leaks through the legs because our baby is on the skinnier side but I expect she will grow out of that.
The quality control on the diapers is a little off. On our liners the snaps are not aligned all that well so the second liner snaps on crooked which doesn't really affect anything just bugs us/looks terrible (wouldn't stop me from using them though). We didn't notice until after using it, but one of our diapers has a hole where the liner wasn't sewn properly to the outside cover.
All in all though a great diaper :) Unknown on 2nd Jan 2014
I love how well this diaper actually works!!! I don't have to worry about my daughters diapers leaking anymore!! Everything stays inside!!! Very impressed!! I also LOVE that she'll poop on the diaper and NOTHING stains!!!! Such a great diaper!! These diapers made it so easy to switch to cloth diapers!!! I'm so upset when I run out!! Can't wait to order some more!!! Unknown on 16th Nov 2013
My 13 month old always seems to be just on the verge of a nasty rash. Never once have we been able to forgo diaper cream without bad results. So when I ordered this diaper I was definitely skeptical.
For once a product is exactly as advertised. I am able to put her in these without anything else on her bum and her skin stayed healthy. The inserts are well-sized allowing for multiple uses of the same cover (unlike some other AI2s which end up being single use only). By the end of the first day, all traces of rash had disappeared for the very first time in her life.
I expected the covers to be essentially just Alvas, but they are soft, trim and fit amazingly better.
I'm waiting until they get a few more washes before I put them to the toddler-who-nurses-all-night test but already they are the definite favorite in my household. If I could afford to completely rebuild my stash using these, I would. Allison on 29th Oct 2013
We weren't 100% sure cloth diapering was for us - infact, we tried a high end brand when our son was first born but they did not work out. We decided to give Lil Helpers a go because we liked the charcoal bamboo option, because they were a great price point that my son could wear for years and because they are a Canadian company. Both my husband and I are now hooked on cloth diapering and get a little fuddy-duddy when we have to use a disposable now! Alix W on 28th Oct 2013
Love the colors (mint & mauve) fit and the fact that they absorb ammonia.
Great customer service, products were delivered by owner - tea and personalized card were a nice touch.
Diaper leaked at first...with awesome customer service, I found out I didn't prep them properly and problem solved with just another wash.
Carmi on 22nd Oct 2013
This diaper is designed very well, the fit is great and the softness of the charcoal bamboo is fantastic! Unfortunently, my boy wets too much for nap or overnight wear in this diaper, but it is a wonderful addition to our daytime rotation! Ashley Gallagher on 6th Sep 2013
We bought these diapers after doing extensive research on the best way to do reusable diapers. Based on ease of use, durability, materials used, intuitive design (the dyson of diapers) and sheer comfort, these diapers are hands down the best. Not only is the product top of the line, the service we received was nothing I have ever experienced, these people listen to you and are really trying to get your business. If you are going to have a baby and want to do everything right, this is the place for you. Thank you Lil Helpers, our baby loves them. Michael Sinclair on 5th Sep 2013
I chose the charcoal diaper as my babies get bad diaper rash. So far, they are working! The only diaper cream I've used is when we are traveling and using disposable diapers. The customer service has been outstanding. I wish I were having more children just so I could continue to use all the lilhelper products! Kristine Laing on 7th Aug 2013
With recent issues with leaking in my son's cloth diapers, I was more than impressed with this diaper. I have purchased a few, but out of the ones I purchased, this particular diaper seemed to fit my son the best (he's a bit husky, so that is sometimes difficult to find)without compromising his comfort. It soaked up so well, that I'm confident using it at night with the extra insert will solve our night diapering dilemma too. He's happy and I'm happy! Shannon on 14th Jul 2013
We love everything about these diapers: the bright colors, the one size fitting, the charcoal/bamboo, the option to single layer or double layer inserts, the ease of care, te sturdy design.
The one detail that I would change/shift/redesign somehow: when using one small insert for a smaller baby, the snap at the back can be felt very directly through to baby's low back when lying down/sleeping.
I would place two snaps, apart, to te outer edge of the back of the diaper to allow for softness at baby's middle/low back. michelle girouard on 3rd Jul 2013
These diapers are great baby always feels dry, super absorbant, customer service alone will keep me coming back, will be ordering more soon. Great Canadian company. vicki on 2nd Jul 2013
The new charcoal bamboo diapers are softer than the first set I ordered. I love the new colors and keep this diaper in my night time rotation. They keep baby dry and rash free. Karen on 27th Jun 2013
We love our charcoal bamboo diapers!! Everything from the prints, absorption, softness, fit are great!! Jenn Columbus on 23rd Jun 2013
