I am very excited to introduce my new self-help book "How to sleep train your baby in 452 easy steps. One dad's journey from party animal to partLy animal." Upon printing a small batch (100,000 books) of my magnum opus I sadly realised that your kid will be in university by the time you master my 452 steps. Although I highly recommend this encyclopedia to any parent (available in fine bookstores everywhere for $199), it is slightly impractical. If you are in a hurry and want your kiddo to sleep through the night, tonight, you could give our Charcoal Overnight insert a shot:
It Lasts All Night: Parents have used our overnight cloth diaper insert for 10-12 hours at a stretch.
Absorbency: You get 8 layers of absorbency in our inserts that will soak up minor oil spills if necessary.
Stay Dry: Most kids wake up at night because they feel uncomfortable in a wet diaper. The charcoal fabric is completely stay dry. The only way even you will know its wet in the morning is by the weight on the diaper.
No Leaks: There is an extra gusset on the insert that prevents leaks. Add to that there is a waterproof layer of PUL on the underside of the insert that keeps the cover dry as well.
Ideal for: If your kid is a heavy wetter and the regular charcoal insert is not enough to last your baby through the night, only then we would recommend getting one these bad boys. Or if your kid is over 18 months old.
Love these overnight inserts. Sometimes I need to prewash them twice because they have a bit of an ammonia smell after only one prewash and regular wash. Love these inserts in terms of absorbancy and fit for my baby. They can be a bit bulky but my little babe doesn't seem to mind at all. These inserts hold very well overnight and my baby is a heavy wetter. My love of lil'helper continues! Ali on 12th May 2017
This insert fits so well into the diaper. Definitely got us through the night. Unknown on 11th May 2017
Well I was told over night cloth diapers can be a pain. I was told they would be bulky. I was told they would leak. I was pretty much told to buy disposable for at night because at least I would know babe wouldn't be "wet" all night. Well folks I love telling people how wrong they are when it's the truth.
So we bought our 1st day pack of Lil Helper's and they came with an over night we used the one over night and we were impressed but babe didn't really need the overnights really at that point. Well fast forward 2 months babe was around 4.5 months when we started to notice that we had to change his regular Lil charcoal diapers or be prepared for an outfit change in the middle of the night. So we ordered 3 more over night diapers and we haven't had an issue with over night cloth diapering since! We love love how they fit and LOVE most importantly how they work! I put my little guy into his night time diaper which consist of the 2 part overnight and a bamboo liner at 6pm and is in his crib at 6:30pm we change him out of his night time diaper at 6:30AM!! NO LEAKS!!!! HEAVEY WETTER!!!! NO LEAKS!!!!!!!! Seriously BEST BEST DIAPER EVER!!!! BUY BUY THE OVERNIGHTS They will change your life Ashley and Baby Oliver on 1st Apr 2017
I love these overnight inserts. They kept my baby dry an entire 12hr overnight. No leaks. Only thing I wish is that the extra liner on top would snap to the bigger one. Melinda Sheppard on 5th Feb 2017
Great overnight insert. My little one is only 10 weeks old but sleeps 7-9 hours a night and is a heavy wetter! I ordered two and am ordering a third because I tried it one night with both the small and large insert and it leaked. When he wears the overnight insert: no leaks.
Great product Lyssa Chabot on 13th Jan 2017
Love this liner, we have had very few accidental leaking in the night since using them. Our little one wets through even disposables and these have managed to keep him dry! Very happy! Unknown on 4th Jan 2017
With my litte man 10 month and 23lbs, he pees..... Use this insert often during long distance rides and afternoon naps. His chubby legs and small waist makes tricky to get the right fit over night, without leaks or huge red marks. Linda on 2nd Dec 2016
These inserts are the best! My girl wouldn't last in a sposie or anything else I tried but these work so good! The little insert that comes with it I use on top of the bamboo inserts for a liner and works great!! I love how the bottom is waterproof and I only wish all of them had this I think it would help in keeping the cover dry. Cora Trimble on 17th Nov 2016
Excellent product. No leaks after 13 hrs overnight. Only thing I wish was that the top liner would snap to the large bottom one to atay in place better. Melinda Sheppard on 11th Nov 2016
I started using the overnight inserts when my daughter got older (14 months) and have found them an improvement over the standard charcoal inserts in regards to quantity of fluid it holds. We are still having some intermittent leaking but I think that's more related to having extra fluid before bed time.
Overall, a great product. Ainsley on 20th Oct 2016
My 3 year old was in this weird transition. He's been daytime potty trained for almost a year, but still wore a pullup at night. One day, he said the pullups were hurting him. I bought the next size up, same thing. He was done wearing pullupS, but not ready to go all night without. Hubby and I would take him to the bathroom in the night, but no matter what, he'd wake up one or two more times, wet. This went on for about a week when I remembered Lil Helper charcoal. We had used this for my younger son but somehow I had forgotten. This time, I got the inserts and just fit them into his underwear. He says it's "so soft" and he's back to sleeping all night! Which means we are too. Thank you! (And thank you for the lovely tea - the perfect gift for a tea-loving mom!). Unknown on 31st Jul 2016
I've had friends say that cloth diapers are great but at night they use disposables. This is what I thought I would have to do too, until now. I was using the regular charcoal inserts at night and finding that occasionally my little one was leaking through. I haven't had this problem with the overnight inserts. The extra waterproof protection is very effective. You can use any cover with these inserts and launder then like the rest of the charcoal diapers. I highly recommend adding this product to your lilhelper diaper shopping cart. Deona on 11th May 2016
I can't quite figure out how this insert holds so much pee? Is it magic? I took it off my fantastic sleeping (11 hours! ) six month old and I think it must've weighed like 5 pounds. (I'm not exaggerating) I attribute part of my daughters legendary sleeping skills to these inserts. They feel dry coming out of the washer. What is up with that! emi on 9th Apr 2016
These are the best add-on the the Lil Heppers. Our son is a heavy wetter and he is all smiles in the morning now. Thanks for a great product and awesome customer service. Bryan on 27th Mar 2016
It works great for us as a night time insert for our heavy wetter. Unknown on 18th Jan 2016
The overnight insert has certainly made a difference in whether my little guy wakes up in dry or wet pjs. Most mornings he is dry as a bone. When he does wake up in wet pjs, 95% of the time it's because the Lilhelper label on the cover has somehow managed to soak up some wetness (the remaining 5% seems to happen when part of the interior of the cover comes into contact with the pjs which appears to be more of not getting the fit quite right issue). I hope that Lilhelper looks into affixing their labels in another manner so that this doesn't happen anymore (my guess is that wetness can seep through to the label because it is stitched on through the cover and the inner layer).

this is the only thing i can find that holds my heavy wetter 3 month old who sleeps the night (I know, I'm so lucky) with no leaks at all and he still feels dry in the am!

High quality product that is great for preventing overnight leaks. Sandy Estacio on 1st May 2015
I am a local foster mom so usually have 2 or 3 little ones in diapers. Cloth diapering has been a fairly recent switch for me (about 1.5 yrs). I have a very heavy overnight wetter and have always had to double up inserts for her to get through the night. These inserts are worth every penny!!! Not only do they get her through the night, but they are less bulky than doubling my previous inserts. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants to sleep at night and not wake up to a wet baby and crib or a rashy bottom. My only complaint would have been that I was only permitted to purchase 2 of the overnight inserts. The site wouldn't allow me to add more than that to my cart. Although we don't want to leave diapers unwashed more than a couple of days, because I am almost always diapering 2 or 3 babies, it would have been nice to purchase enough for all of my babies to get through a couple of nights. Aside from that I have zero negative remarks about the inserts! Fantastic job lil helper!!! Great products (not to mention excellent customer care...lots of personal touches!!)

These inserts are great. Not only do they hold all the pee & poo my boys can sling at them (10wk twins), the inserts never stain! Which means less sunny which means less work which makes a happy momma! Elizabeth on 1st Apr 2015
