FOR CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE CANADA & U.S., PLEASE GO TO OUR INTERNATIONAL DAY PACK. THANKS!
There are a million decisions you need to make before the baby gets here.
You need to select the color scheme of the nursery. Install the car seat. Think of a cutesy middle name. Apple? Hipster? Laker? Find a suitable pre-school, school, college, etc. for your child. Everything needs to be walking distance, obviously.
And now you even have to decide how many and what kind of cloth diapers to get?
Although we cannot decide what your baby’s middle name should be (I’d go with Lil Helper- why not?), we can definitely make your life simpler by offering our Lil Helper Day Pack. It has all the diapers & inserts you might need for 1 full-day of cloth diapering.
If you are not into doing laundry everyday, we would recommend getting at least 2 and preferably 3 packs. So if you plan on washing your diapers every 2 days then you need 2 Day Packs. You should ideally start with 2 day packs and if you think you need more diapers then we recommend you get an additional pack.
All of this comes with the our legendary customer support where emails are answered super quick like, and you always have the option to call in with questions.
Cloth diapering, like any new thing you try, has a learning curve but our diapers are designed to be intuitive mixed with our over-zealous customer service, you will never be in want of answers.
Think we are kidding? Here’s the cell number of Lil Helper’s CEO, Mohammed, 647-885-4642. Ask him why you should get his diapers. Don’t worry about the time- just call. Now try that with any other company.
I started using these diapers when my baby was 3 months old. Prior to that we used disposables. My baby is VERY particular about his diapers. He gets upset as soon as his diaper gets even a tiny bit wet and we had been changing up to 20 diapers per day. Once we switched to Lil Helper we found that it almost cut our number of diaper changes in half. We purchased 4 day packs and it is usually enough to get us through 2.5 days (but like I said, he demands more changes than the average baby). I love these diapers so far.
I will say that we have had a few leaks overnight when using just the charcoal inserts. We recently switched to using a combination of charcoal and bamboo and that seems to have solved the problem. However we still have occasional wicking issues with the fleece lining. Also, due to the fleece lining, we can rarely use the same shell more than once before washing. I feel like I might have liked these diapers even more if the inside were wipeable instead of fleece as this would solve the wicking issue.
That said, I did expect that I might feel this way before I ordered the day packs but ultimately still went with these diapers as the customer service is amazing, the Baby Do Good program is wonderful, I love that they are Canadian, and the price is great compared to other options (especially because they include the inserts). I also really loved that they allow you to order a trial diaper. I did order one and that was ultimately what sealed the deal for me. I tested a couple of other brands as well and this was the winner. None of the other brands that I tested allowed customers to order a trail diaper at a reduced price. Overall I am very happy with this purchase and would highly recommend to anyone looking for simple to use cloth diapers. Unknown on 10th Oct 2018
I just received a day pack from lil helper and I am now obsessed! 3 out of 4 nights disposables were leaking through before morning but these diapers have not leaked once yet and I am buying another one today because I love them so much! also the customer service is amazing and I got a free bib, diaper, tea, card, and chocolates. they are a Canadian company and small business owners that make it that much better and they fit so well for my baby and I'm so happy they are one size fits all! there is literally nothing bad I can say about these diapers because they are so amazing!

I had ordered some pre-baby and wasn’t planning on using until a month or so after Baby was born. We ended up running out of the NB disposables so I tried the NB fold with the Lil helpers on my Not quite 7 lb baby and they are fantastic! He is also much calmer during change time and I have already ordered more!! Wonderful customer service as well!! Tiff on 17th Sep 2018
So here's the thing: we used several different brands of cloth diapers with our first squish and had all sorts of headaches- from leaks to rashes, stink and stains, not to mention complicated wash routines. We held strong until potty training but it was so much work and we were kind of dreading doing it all over again with our second little. Enter Lil'Helper diapers. Simple. Affordable. Super cute. Canadian. We love these diapers! And the customer service is epic- thanks for the free treats! I am so happy that we found you! We did the trial diaper, quickly purchased two day packs & then added a third (we have a heavy wetter!). As our babe grows we'll add some boosters to our stash too. It almost makes me excited about laundry ;) Emma Sabourin on 9th Sep 2018
This was my third time coming back to lilhelper, I bought my 2nd day pack and am so pleased with it! The diapers as always are extremely good quality and the charcoal inserts are my favourites, poop washes off so easily and they don't stain which is a plus! I have been using lilhelper diapers for 4 months now and have no complaints at all. The new prints are great! And I had to get the lilhelper swim diaper which I haven't yet had a chance to use, however i like the mesh inside, looks like it will be very breathable. It is nice peace of mind knowing my little one is comfortable in these diapers and that the charcoal wicks away the moisture so he is not sitting in a soaked diaper. Sophye on 28th Aug 2018
Everything with the cloth diapers was great and we have no complaints. Feels good to be more economical and we are no longer tripling our garbage output! Back for some more! Mikaelah on 23rd Aug 2018
I absolutely love these diapers and they are adorable. I have 25 diapers now plus some awesome accessories!! I can't say enough good things about this company, they are great!! I recommend them to everyone I can!! Thank you Lil helpers for being awesome!! Always a happy customer!! Felicia Leckey on 21st Aug 2018
You read it here first, folks! Well, probably not because word gets around about these awesomesauce diapers. I just love them! With my older daughter I tried a great number of cloth diapers. Diapers with the pockets and the foldy things and the clippies and the “which diaper does this belong to?”... No more! I’m so happy to have found Lil Helper; my only diapers for my newest lil guy. Dana on 13th Aug 2018
We loved our Lil’ Helper diapers!
Easy to wear, wash, and they are oh so cute on! Great colours and patterns available. The snaps are also so great. Easy to snap and unsnap, making diaper changes quick and easy for us and baby! We had to make another order right away! Customer service was also outstanding, will definitely be back. Lil’ Helper was recommended by a friend and so thankful they were, will recommend to anyone with babies or babies on the way!! Amelia on 6th Aug 2018
I was absolutely convinced to use cloth diapers when I was pregnant. I did a lot of googling and after carefully reading through websites and reviews, I decided to go with Lil Helpers. I absolutely loved them the first few months ! They are easy to wash and dry, the were gentle on my newborns's bum, you really are able to make them fit right from the start.. But when my daughter was about 4 months old we started to have leaks. At first, it was only during the night. We were advised to purchase the overnight inserts and they worked. But a while later, they also started leaking: my daughters diaper was soaking wet come morning. We changed to disposibles for overnight but then we started to have leaks during the day as well. I found out that if I didn't change my daughter's diaper every 2h we would have leaks. I guess there diapers are great up until the point where our baby started to pee more.. I'm really disappointed because purchasing cloth diapers is quite the investment, even more so if you can only use them for about 6 months. Unknown on 2nd Aug 2018
I bought multiple kinds of diapers to try out and Lil Helper was hands down our favourite! We have two days worth and are back for more! We're so excited to try out all of the other great things Lil Helper has to offer. Unknown on 21st Jul 2018
These diapers are great for holding stuff in, they are soft on babies skin and fit nicely in onesies send sleepers. The only issue I have with them is a full understanding of how to specifically fit for baby around the waist! Maybe a more in depth brochure to go out with the diapers would help! Unknown on 10th Jul 2018
Im in love with the lil helper cloth diapers so far!
Ive been using them with my newborn for the last 5 weeks and am really impressed.
I found the video on how to fit for a newborn extremely helpful for finding the right fit. My husband changes a lot of diapers too, and he is on board and also surprised at how user friendly the whole system is!
Our daughter's skin looks great, with no signs of irritation or rashes, again really impressed.
Thank you for making such a great environmentally friendly product! Sarah on 2nd Jul 2018
Overall these are wonderful cloth diapers! The customer service is fabulous. I love the solid colours and there are some fun print options. I also love that there are both hip snaps and cross-over snaps on the waist tabs (unlike some other brands) because it allows MUCH more customization in the fit.Excellent quality as well - from what I've read they will last through multiple kids and hold up great! The only thing I would say is that it would be nice to be able to choose whether you want bamboo or charcoal as the insert that comes with each shell, as I personally prefer the bamboo (more absorbency, and you can pair it with a liner for stay dry feel for the baby).

We are a diehard cloth, diehard lil helper family and own upwards of 5 daypacks plus extras. Our 13 month old son has been in cloth since 3 days old and the quality of his diapers is the same as day one. They hold up so well to extensive use if you follow proper wash routines! We have never even considered another company because the design, fit, and customer service of lil helper is unbeatable. Kelly on 26th Jun 2018
We only use lil helper diapers and they’ve never failed us ! Love the new patterns and colours. Wash super well. I find the new inserts softer but it may be because they’re new. I’m a return customer because they’re great! Customer service still 10/10, long lasting products. No complaints ! Unknown on 23rd Jun 2018
Originally ordered a trial diaper to have a variety available to try with my newborn but loved the quality and immediately ordered the day pack, planning on having these as my whole stash and using these as soon as she gets here! Unknown on 20th Jun 2018
I have purchased 2 day packs and will probably be ordering another in the very near future! The diapers fit my little very well (10 months old, 20 lbs), though it did take a few days for me to figure out how to do the perfect fit. The lil helper videos on youtube helped immensely! Now my little is a crawling machine without any leaks! No more soaked pants! Plus when I went for my daycare tour and they saw his cute diapers and how easy they were to use, they offered to try cloth diapering him when he starts!!! YAY!! If you are new or old to the cloth diaper world try lil helpers diapers! They really are AMAZING! Charlene on 29th May 2018
We've been using these cloth diapers for roughly 5 months now and we couldn't be happier with them! They adjust easily and contain anything our little girl can throw at them within reason. We have other diapers with bamboo liners and it doesn't take much to make them feel wet. The charcoal fleece liners with from lil helper stay feeling dry much longer. The diapers are super easy to clean with no special detergents required and rather impressively still look like new despite being washer every other day.
You can't go wrong with these diapers, especially at this price! Scott on 25th May 2018
We bought a day for our baby girl before she was born and we used those diapers right from the beginning. The snaps make it really easy to adjust and follow your babies growth, its awesome. Nice materials, great quality and even the service is up top!
Thanks! Keep up the good work :) Leonard on 19th May 2018
