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.
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
We were hesitant to make the switch to cloth for night time, but after one night in the LH overnight insert, we haven't looked back! Not only is our babe sleeping well throughout the night (thankfully), but so are we, especially knowing that she's not sleeping in extra chemicals against her bottom! kirstienne on 25th Feb 2015
I was too scared to cloth diaper at night for my heavy wetter. Once my 18 month old started leaking through disposables I was willing to try anything! The overnight inserts work!!! He sleeps 12 hours and night (dream) nurses frequently and no leaks! Plus it's a much more trim option compared to fitted stuffed to the max diapers with a waterproof cover! I'm super impressed and coming back for a couple more :) Jaimie on 5th Feb 2015
We've been blessed with a good overnight sleeper who sleeps 12-14 hours a night. These inserts are amazing! They hold in everything and in the morning her skin looks completely normal. The first time we used this insert, in the morning my husband changed her and said "it's not even wet, she didn't pee all night!" Then I handed him an unused insert to compare weights. It is impressive how much these inserts hold!! Missy on 28th Dec 2014
The overnight diaper insert is great! It is much thicker than the daytime and had a different material on the back to hold the moisture from seeping through. This is my new overnight goto diaper as it does NOT leak thru the night and it still dries quickly after washing. I love how easy it is to snap into my lil helper diaper covers. No stuffing saves time! Meghan Fox on 23rd Oct 2014
My grandbaby is sensitive to wet diapers and cries quickly for a diaper change. The overnight bamboo diaper inserts are awesome. Very absorbent, and leaves baby comfortable. The products are easy to care for by following the instructions. Grandma on 14th Aug 2014
These inserts are amazing. We put baby to bed at 8:00 and don't change him again until 7:00 the next morning and there has never been a rash or a leak. Buy more than you think you'll need because they take longer to air dry than regular inserts. Unknown on 7th Aug 2014
I had a lot of difficulty finding a good overnight diaper that didn't leak so I ordered a few of these to try. I have used them for a few weeks now at night and haven't had a single leak yet! I'm quite impressed with how effective these are - even better than the disposables we were using. I will definitely be ordering more of these. Unknown on 16th Jun 2014
We have quite a few friends who cloth diaper, and many of them use a disposable overnight, as they have found that cloth diapers just don't cut it for 10+ hours. We have loved our Lil Helper diapers and how the cloth diapers leave our son feeling soft and dry during the day, so we threw caution to the wind and ordered the overnights, figuring at least they would work for long day trips. We tried them at night and WOW - they work like a dream, even better than disposables! I won't lie - I was surprised, albeit pleasantly :) Our son is an excellent little sleeper, going 12 or 13 hours a night. He's not a crazy heavy wetter, but he has his fair share of liquid in there every morning. No leaks so far - so happy they have worked out!
Tips would be to wash them first before you use them, line dry them and only use a pinch of soap, we have found that the best way to get the most of these diapers. Alix W on 28th Oct 2013
