Think marshmallows, super absorbent fluffy marshmallows just waiting to nestle your kiddo’s bottom (as marshmallows are known to do). The thirsty micro-fiber is sandwiched inside the soft embrace of the bamboo making you wonder why you ever even considered disposable diapers. Your baby’s bottom is resting on the nirvana of cloth diaper inserts, a lil bit of heaven on earth. Happy bum, happy baby. And we all know what a happy baby means.
This is why you'll love our bamboo Insert:
Two Inserts: You get two inserts in a pack. One small insert. One large insert
We have a heavy wetter in our house who leaks through the charcoal liners in no time. The small charcoal with the large bamboo are our go to daytime combo or just the bamboo for car rides and sleep. I only gave a 4 star because I would LOVE to be able to select either bamboo or charcoal inserts to go with covers instead of getting charcoal and needing to buy bamboo separate. C.S on 6th Dec 2018
I ordered more of these because they are so absorbent and so soft! I love knowing that my babe is wearing diapers free from harmful substances, and ones that are comfortable for her! We love these diapers. Unknown on 14th Aug 2018
These inserts are okay. The absorbency isn't fantastic when compared with other inserts that we have that are bamboo. These would be way better if they were actually all bamboo and not bamboo and microfiber.
They would be even better if they were entirely bamboo with a microfleece top for a stay dry effect. Unknown on 24th Jul 2018
We have a heavy wetter who has also had a UTI that landed him in the hospital when he was younger. Being able to see the colour of his pee (as it's often the only sign of a UTI) is important so we ordered some of these inserts.
At first they didn't absorb anything. I would put them on him, and it was like the pee just flowed off and out the diaper. This happened 4 times within the first 10 minutes of each diaper change. I had prewashed them and everything. I've washed them about 10 times now and can finally go about an hour between changes.
The charcoal inserts are definitely a better choice. Rachel on 18th Jul 2018
These have great absorbency, and are very soft. They don’t have the stay dry effect, like the charcoal inserts, but it doesn’t deter me from using them. I change my baby regularly so I don’t notice any wetness or rash on baby. I do opt for the charcoal inserts when it comes to car rides or sleep time, but other than that, I prefer the bamboo. I’ve had no smell issues with these, and that’s my biggest hoorah! Anything that doesn’t cause extra problems or work for me gets a thumbs up and I’m happy to come back to. I’ll be purchasing more bamboo inserts, and opting for bamboo inserts in our next diaper order. These are great! Unknown on 7th Jul 2018
The bamboo inserts absorb a LOT of liquid and are very soft. They do not draw the moisture away from baby's skin, so I find that I have to change my baby frequently. For babies big enough to use a large inset and small insert together, I've found that pairing a large bamboo insert with a small charcoal insert works really well. The bamboo inserts wash and dry great, too. New Mom on 4th Apr 2018
The bamboo inserts are really nice. They absorb a lot of moisture and are very soft. I do find I use the charcoal more often just because they hide the stains better. Otherwise they work just as well! Kat on 13th Jan 2018
Bamboo liners work, but stain easily and take a lot longer to dry than the charcoal inserts, so okay as backup. Emily C on 6th Jan 2018
Great product, at great prices can't go wrong. Friendly staff, knowledgeable emails on product and how to take care of them. Very happy would definitely do it again in the future. George Michael on 18th Sep 2017
First, I love the quality of everything Lil Helper makes. The bamboo are soft and super absorbent. I notice our son feels slightly wet when we use the bamboo inserts over the charcoal, and they definitely feel wetter to the touch. We use these are our backup inserts if all of the charcoal are dirty. Katie on 10th Nov 2016
Great product. I really like the bamboo inserts. I've two different styles as we've ordered some diapers from Costco and another from Lil Helpers (here). I find the ones from Lil Helper are softer on the skin. Both absorb excellent, but I do like the charcoal inserts more.... Charcoal inserts dry quicker and are softer. Overall though great product!

I bought several of these bamboo inserts with my first order, and I was not disappointed! They are great for overnights, as they are very absorbent, and they are so very soft on my little one's delicate skin.
I usually use the charcoal inserts during the day and the bamboo inserts at night, as my little one is usually a day-time pooper and I didn't want to have stains right away, but he's had a couple of poops in the bamboo inserts and I was able to wash out any evidence with a bit of Dawn and room temperature water. :)
I would recommend these as they are definitely a worthwhile purchase! Stephanie Nash Roy on 8th Sep 2016
I love cloth diapering so far but prefer the charcoal liners to the bamboo. However these liners do work great as well Kathryn Boyle on 7th Jul 2016
Great quality product and amazing customer service! Jessica on 27th May 2016
I absolutely love the new bamboo inserts!! They are much less bulky and dry so much quicker!! I used to only reach for the bamboo inserts when I was running out of my charcoal ones but I reach for these just as often now! They seem to absorb really well! jessica on 6th May 2016
My little guy is 18 months now, and for the past 6 months, we've struggled to contain leaks when he has his first big pee (after his morning bottle). I bought a few more sets of the bamboo inserts, and LOVE them. The recent changes to the design/ style means that they have more coverage inside the diaper, and manage to catch and absorb the heavy pees. Love these!! Krista on 29th Apr 2016
If you had asked me 3-6 months ago which of the diaper inserts I liked more, I'd have said the charcoal, hands down. I even came and wrote a review on the Charcoal Diaper section of the site to say I'd have gotten more of them than the bamboo had I known... In the last few months, I've done a full 180.
Because we've been a little concern with our little guy's weight gain after a bad stomach bug, tracking his wets has become important lately. As amazing as the charcoal is with its moisture wicking properties, it's also very hard to tell when our guy has had a wet. So, I've found myself going back and almost using the bamboo inserts exclusively now. With a bamboo liner to keep the moisture from our guy's skin if he pee's, it's actually fantastic. I'm not really glad I have a 50-50 stash. The charcoal for his naps and bamboo for day time play. Vivian on 20th Dec 2015
I do love the bamboo inserts for the softness & absorbancy. I like the breathable natural material & the newer style with stitching is also very trim!
We prefer to use them for daytime as they do end up feeling damp after a good pee. And as often as we change babe, we don't want her to feel uncomfy or wet. That said, I think they may absorb even more than the charcoal inserts. So buyers preference!
Again a great insert- it definitely can take on quite a bit without leakage & is easy to use! Tasha on 14th Sep 2015
Let me start off by saying I'm a big fan of lil helper and their diapers. I just prefer the charcoal inserts to the bamboo. The bamboo inserts are very absorbent to the point of feeling soaked and wet on my LO's bum even when we are changing every couple hours. I can't imagine that feeling all that comfortable. The charcoal are much drier and do the same job. If I got to purchase the diapers again, I would most definitely go with the charcoal inserts exclusively. Tracey on 3rd Jun 2015
I find these to be the most absorbent of the 3 types of inserts. I use this insert for a leak-free nap time. Like all Lil Helper Inserts the large insert could be slightly longer to provide more coverage on the large rise setting while still fitting easily into the medium rise setting.
