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.”
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 complete 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 for preventing further breakouts. Most parents use it as a nap or night-time diaper.
All of these issues surrounding irritant diaper dermatitis (IDD) or diaper rash can be prevented by using our Charcoal Cloth Diaper. Here's how:
Keeps Your Baby Feeling Dry: The charcoal inserts can hold more than 180 ml of liquid and the great part is that your child still feels dry. Keeping your child’s skin dry is the best way to remedy diaper rashes-charcoal's wicking ability lets you do just that.
Lets 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.
Eliminates the Need for Rash Creams: 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.

This diaper is more amazing than I thought possible. My daughter is an extremely heavy wetter. We started cloth at 1.5months. Without naming brands we tried all in ones, pockets and covers. With microfiber, bamboo , hemp, prefolds fst.and even charcoal bamboo from another company. Nothing worked! She was leaking within 30 to 60 min. Myself and my breastfeeding pillow would be soaked.
Fast forward to trying these diapers and it is like night and day. I dont have leaks,I get an amazing fit and the colours are beautiful! My entire stash is now lil helper diapers. Approx 30 in total and I wouldn't change it for the world!!
Being a canadian company and having such amazing customer service is just the icing on the cake!!! Ashley dolan on 15th Oct 2018
First time parents here...
Before my baby girl was born, we loved the idea of cloth diapering. We watched every Lil Helper video out there to be as prepared as possible. Not gonna lie...once she was born, we took what we thought was the easy route (tired & overwhelmed) and used disposables. We couldn’t be bothered with the extra laundry. MISTAKE. 8 days into parenthood and we were faced with a very bad diaper rash...which took many visits to the doctor, 4 trial and error prescriptions and 6 weeks to fully heal aaaaand 4 days later it started coming back. We were at the end of our rope so we decided to give cloth diapering a go. Result? NO MORE DIAPER RASH - ever! Even through teething - nothing! Just a healthy, happy baby bum. The only negative thing I have to say is they are bulkier than disposables (duh?!) so dress a size up! J-Bird & Lil’V on 11th Sep 2018
I HONESTLY HADN'T EVEN PLANNED ON USING CLOTH DIAPERS. I ACTUALLY DON'T EVEN KNOW ANYONE WHO HAS USED THEM BUT ONE DAY I CAME ACROSS LIL HELPERS WHILE READING UP ON BABY STUFF AND I THOUGHT WELL WHY NOT TRY THEM. I'VE MADE SEVERAL ORDERS NOW AND I HAVE 3 CHANGE PADS. THE SMALL ONE IS AWESOME FOR THE DIAPER BAG. THE DIAPERS THEMSELVES ARE SUPER EASY AND I USE THE BAMBOO FLUSHABLE LINERS AND IT MAKES IT AS EASY AS A DISPOSABLE ONLY IT IS MUCH BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, BABIES BUM AND YOUR WALLET IN THE LONG RUN! I REALLY RECOMMEND TRYING THEM. IT MIGHT SEEM DAUNTING AT FIRST BUT GIVE THEM A TRY IT'S SUPER EASY. I GOT MY HUSBAND USING THEM NOW! Erin on 6th Sep 2018
I have been cloth diapering for a few months and have tried a few different brands, but none of them have even come close to lil helper! I bought one diaper to try and I love how absorbent and easy it is to use; no difficult stuffing or struggling with the diaper! Our 17 month old can pee a lot but I haven’t had any leak problems at all! Laura McLean on 6th Sep 2018
What I like about them
1. Fits my newborn very comfortably. And it doesn’t look or feel bulky
2. The charcoal inserts are very absorbent and feels dry even with a reasonable amount of pee . Unknown on 25th Jul 2018
Cloth diapering couldn't be easier with our lil helpers. They have seen us through the last few years and I couldn't help but get the beautiful new prints in the high rise, before our lil guy potty trained. I love the high rise!!!!
Thank you Amy on 24th Jul 2018
The diapers work really well. I had a couple leaks when I was learning how to put them on my baby but once I learned the proper adjustments I never had any leaks.
The prints are gorgeous and the diapers feel so soft ( both inside AND outside). Sara on 2nd Jul 2018
Lil Helper diapers are easy to use, easy to wash, and look great!
The snaps make the diapers easily adjustable to fit my newborn's skinny legs and give her lots of room to grow. We've had a few leaks, but these are usually due to human error (not snapping in the right spots or having the liner outside the shell around the legs) or when she takes an unusually long nap. The few times my daughter has been in disposable diapers, she's had major poop explosions up her back. We've never once had this issue when she's in her Lil Helpers!
Washing is easy and the shells and charcoal liners air-dry really quickly. After washing, I snap the liners in (which is super quick and easy) and then the diapers are ready to go, making them as easy to grab and use as disposables.
We love our Lil Helper Diapers! They're the only ones we use. Megan on 25th Jun 2018
I had no trouble getting my husband on board for cloth diapering. However, we started with mostly pockets and he would use disposables if I hadn't gotten to stuffing.
Enter Lil Helper! The snap-in inserts mean I don't have to spend hours stuffing, and my husband will still use them! We get such a great fit and no leaks on our 12lb 4 month old. I can't wait to grow our stash. Katie on 24th Jun 2018
I love my Lil Helper diapers. I started my cloth diapering journey with a big collection of used diapers from assorted brands and loved the Lil Helpers so much that I've bought more. They are the easiest kind of diaper to use (no stuffing pockets, no folding or pins needed) and they also wash well (no stains on the charcoal) and dry super fast. I wash frequently, usually twice a week, so it's important that I don't have to wait around all day for them to dry. I also love the snap closures as opposed to velcro, because the snaps don't get worn out by the wash. Chelsea on 21st May 2018
I adore Lil Helper Cloth Diapers. They are so easy to use, and so easy to clean - which is key for me because I'm lazy lol. They fit my baby perfectly, and absorb quite a bit. The prints are also super cute.
I like the newer updated diapers because they are a little bit higher and even softer! Melissa Sulley on 16th May 2018
I took a chance and ordered a bunch of these before my baby was born, which I’m told is a big no-no. But I’m so glad I did because these diapers are amazing!!
1) my baby pees like a toddler (hello huge bladder) and even when it feels like her diaper weighs 5lb it doesn’t leak!
2) they are so easy to use and high quality.
3) love the charcoal inserts. I have both and I could do without the bamboo. Charcoal is just so perfectly soft and dry!
4) I am so happy to know that my baby’s diapers were made responsibly and ethically, and that I can support a good Canadian company.
5) they gave me chocolate in my package Unknown on 15th May 2018
The charcoal diaper is fantastic. I have a few different brands, but really like this one because of it's amazing absorbency and because the cover is so soft on the inside and doesn't leave big marks around my baby's legs, belly or back. My baby seems very comfortable in them. They work great as an overnight option. Unknown on 7th May 2018
Awesome product! The fit is perfect! They are my favorite cloth diapers and I recommend them! Joanie on 17th Apr 2018
Amazing product!! I just bought these for my 3rd child, really wish I would of looked into cloth diapers before. They fit great and the quality is awesome. Definitely recommend them! Carolanne on 16th Mar 2018
Making the decision to transition to cloth was much easier when I received my LilHelper cloth diaper! The charcoal liners are perfect for night time. No stains or leaks! Unknown on 13th Mar 2018
Friends and family had a poll on how long I would last with clothe diapers. We’ve used them from 3 weeks on ( son is 11 months). We’ve paired these with Rocky Mountain Soap Conpanies Butt Butter and our son hasn’t had diaper rash with the pairing. We struggled with some leaks at night but now use the nighttime insert and it’s amazing too. When we were struggling we used pampers and huggies nighttime and he’d sometimes have a rash in the morning as they would leak the gel through (and they smell like urine/babypowder). It made my heart hurt.
I 100% recommend clothe. I am not the type to use this kind of product. Clean up is easy, they smell better then a wet disposal, keep your babies skin great and are fun. Jess on 22nd Feb 2018
These diapers work well, our son is a heavy wetter so they unfortunately tend to leak. Unknown on 19th Feb 2018
We love our Lil’Helper diapers! They are so soft, easy to use, fast drying, and come in many beautiful colours and prints. Their new higher rise is wonderful. The older style still fits very nicely but these new rises will ensure that my little guy will be in Lil’Helpers for his whole cloth diapering adventure. Their customer service is second to none. They are so helpful and kind and I love the family feel of this company. No matter who you are they treat you like family (in a good way haha not like that aunt who always pinches your cheeks or that uncle who always says “pull my finger” lol). Kaley Harkins on 2nd Feb 2018
I tried these cloth diapers when my little one was 3 months old. I was skeptical about it and worried that since my LO is on the tiny side that it would leak. There were a few leaks at first only because I hadn't put the diaper snaps on the right size for her but once I figured it out it worked great! No more diaper rashes which was the main reason for switching to cloth and they fit great and look super cute. Cleaning up poop isn't the greatest thing but honestly it doesn't take long and you can get disposable liners for them anyways. Best thing is that my husband actually likes using them since there's no more diaper rashes and it's much better economically and environmentally. Highly recommend to everyone and if your skeptical start with a lil helper trial cloth diaper. I also recommend getting a wet zip bag for when your out and about and as soon as you get home pre soak them in a container with vinegar as it neutralizes the scent. Freya on 5th Jan 2018
