- why ?
- cloth diapers
- diaper inserts
- change mats
Every now and then, perhaps only once in a lifetime, something happens.
Something so huge it changes the world completely.
Something so important it alters the course of human history.
Until that something happens, why not try our new Lifesaver Mat AKA Large Charcoal Change Mat?
The bedding that is right for you and your child! No more changing giant, unwieldy bedsheets. If any 'accidents' happen in the night, these Lifesaver Mats will make cleaning a breeze. It might not change the world or anything (I mean, it might. I'm not saying it can't, but statistically...), but it will give you and your baby the comfort and protection you so sorely need. And isn't that why you're on a diaper website to begin with?
Q: Excuse me, Mr. Diaper Man?
Q: I'm used to having charcoal in my Barbecue, not on my baby's butt. Why would I want a Lifesaver Mat?
Q: Stay Dry?
Q: Cool. Does it come in different colours?
Q: Oh yeah, lots more.
Waterproof Bottom Layer: The bottom layer of the diaper change mat is lined with a medical grade waterproof material. Now you can lay your baby down for a nap on your single girlfriend’s prized mattress without any worries.
Baby Stays Dry: This thirsty combination of naturally wicking material will absorb a torrent of liquid and will still keep the surface feeling dry.
Family Heirloom In The Making: The waterproof barrier is guaranteed to outlast 200 commercial launderings. Your rugged jeans will tear into rags after just 150 washes.
Safe For Baby & Environment: The waterproof barrier is phthalate, BPA and lead and heavy metal free. The waterproof barrier is also manufactured in Canada. No other waterproof material comes close to meeting such high standards of manufacturing.
Sized Perfectly: The mat is sized at a convenient 34’’ x 36’’ (86 cm. x 91 cm.). The large change mat is big enough to be used on a toddler's bed. It is small enough to be tucked cosily in a crib.
One Mat, Multiple Uses: You can use this mat as a play mat when going to the park or visiting a friend's place. It also serves as a portable sleeping area when going on trips or visiting relatives. Using our crib pad ensures that your child doesn't leave a yellow trail on Granny's tempurpedic mattress.
Pre-Washed; No Shrink: We pre-washed the organic bamboo to get rid of any shrinkage before sewing it with the waterproof barrier.
And YES! It can go into the dryer: This protector doesn't mind the dryer. You can put it into your dryer at regular heat and it (including the waterproof barrier) will be tickety-boo.
Awesome Gift Idea: No matter the sex of the child or whether your friend decides to use disposable or cloth diapers- one thing is for sure- she will most likely change her baby’s diaper every couple of hours. Hey, she might even take the baby out once in a while. Your friend will love this as a baby shower gift. Or a birthday gift. Or if you hate her sense of style and want to give her an elegantly designed, classic piece that does not scream Disney characters.
Q: I think that answers all of my questions for now, but what if I have more later?
I don't know how I would have handled post partumn life without my lifesaver matt. I ended up co-sleeping and decided to try sleeping on top of a lifesaver mat, it saves my sheets from sweats, breastmilk leaks, spit-ups and diaper leaks, I wish there was a bigger one so we could sleep on one and use another as a blanket! Adult blanket sized lifesaver matts would be amazing!
I loved my first matt so much but it needed to stay clean for night use, so I had the excuse to order a second matt when it was restocked in my favourite pattern- Space Dinos! (Seriously I have nearly every space dino product available and just ordered a wet bag in space dinos...) It is great having a second matt for diaper-free tummy time! Lily on 12th Mar 2020
Now that I have this mat my girl gets more naked baby time which is helping her development as she wiggles and moves so much more when she is in the buff. I think it will be great when we travel in the summer as it can double as a bed protector, beach blanket/towel, wind breaker etc. Sandra on 27th Feb 2020
Recently received our life saver mat, and I’m in love with it!! Our son is in the crawling stage so he’s constantly on the move, but we don’t even need to move him back on to the mat during naked time as he doesn’t move off of it! I don’t have to worry about him soaking through it either, as I know how absorbent it is. Unknown on 26th Feb 2020
I have one of these in the lounge room for "nudie rudie" time (protects our handmade blankets from getting whizzed on!) and one in our bedroom for morning feeds in bed (no more changing the sheets from spilt milk, spit ups or leaks!). They are such amazing mats. Love, love, love them! Stacie on 22nd Jan 2020
This is an excellent mattress protector. I've tried so many full mattress protectors that end up not being waterproof as advertised and had to get rid of a mattress because of it. This is an awesome solution. It's big enough to cover the mattress where it counts and so easy to switch out in the middle of the night when my son wakes up wet. It can also be easily packed to take with us on the go for sleepovers or even a cozy car cover. I love the cute designs too. Functional and stylish, a design win! Milly on 20th Jan 2020
I looooooove the lifesaver mat! Ben on 8th Jan 2020
This mat has literally been a lifesaver for tummy time and naked time. My little one cannot be trusted not to have a poo-splosion on her play gym and this mat has been the perfect solution. She gets to air out her booty and play while I get the safety of the lifesaver mat to protect everything. I love how easy it is to wash. I will definitely buy another one so I always have one ready for playtime. Unknown on 7th Dec 2019
My baby isn't due til Nov, but I already know we are going to get a ton of use out of this mat. The print is adorable, the charcoal side is lovely and soft and absorbent. Already starting to brainstorm the infinite uses for this mat. Unknown on 8th Oct 2019
These mats are awesome! I use them all of the time! I have one on my bed for nighttime while baby is eating so that I don’t have to wash my sheets and mattress cover if his diaper starts leaking while I am feeding him. I also struggle with wearing a bra and nursing pads at night so it’s a nice alternative if I start to leak! These are my go to to give out to new moms Unknown on 27th Aug 2019
We use the lifesaver mat for everything ! I bought it to put on our 3 yr olds bed for extra protection but we use it for changes , picnics , a blanket . It has so many great uses! Defiantly buying more!! Megan on 30th Jul 2019
We purchased this mat so that we can change our newborn worry free when visiting friends houses. The large size catches everything! We have enough to worry about as moms so having this mat in my arsenal is a blessing. Steph on 2nd Jul 2019
It's great, we use it for changing and for playing on the floor. It's so soft and I love the space dinos pattern Shailynn on 20th May 2019
The possibility of mat are endless, change mat, playmat, waterproof stroller blanket.. The materials used are so soft!
All LilHelper products are clearly made with love. I just couldn't resist the Space Dino print!
Extremely happy with my purchase! Jessica on 18th May 2019
Happy with my purchase and use this a lot more than I thought I would. So soft and great quality Jessica on 14th Apr 2019
LOVE these charcoal change mats. Great to have around the house for diaper changes, especially with a toddler. Easy to clean too. If you are debating between the small or the large, definitely start with the large. The small is really only for newborns or on the go. Unknown on 25th Mar 2019
I have a regular sized charcoal mat for my change pad but wanted to get a large one for tummy time and diaper free play! Love this mat so much! It’s so big and soft!! Maria on 11th Jan 2019
Honestly the coolest thing I've purchased so far. My baby is a puker and this thing has saved me from so much laundry and upholstery cleaning. A nap on a bed, crib or the couch is more restful and cleaner. It absorbs any liquid quickly and spit up wipes off easily until the next wash. I ordered one more to leave in my diaper bag Unknown on 1st Oct 2018
I ordered this large charcoal change mat with the intention of using it as a mattress protector when I was ready to make the jump to Lil Helper overnight. My guy is a heavy wetter so I wanted to be prepared for leakage. Well guess what; no leaks! So you might think it was a waste of money. Wrong! On the odd night that diaper laundry is still drying I’ll throw on a disposable diaper :( and that one almost always leaks. Glad I have my charcoal change mat in my corner! Dana on 7th Sep 2018
This is a fantastic mat overall. It has saved my sofa and mattress several times as I have a heavy spitter-upper + a squirmer. We have used this product every day since since my little one came home. The only downsides to the large mat are: 1) wish there was a snap or something to keep it together when travelling with it (it keeps unraveling in my bag), and 2) it takes a rather long time to dry if you don't put it in the dryer. I was expecting it to dry much quicker, but it look more than one overnight for it to be usable again.
Overall, a highly recommended addition to baby gear, regardless of whether you are cloth diapering or not. Unknown on 13th Aug 2018
I recently got my large charcoal mat. I think I have used it everyday since the day it arrived. My little one is at the stage where she no longer wants to be contained in the changing table, so this may has become my changing area mat. I take it with me to the pool, to use as her changing area in the changing room. I also use it in my house, car pretty much anywhere I can. However I wished it had a Velcro or snap button so that when you fold it stays put in my bag. Unknown on 5th Feb 2018
