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.
Started using these at 5 months and am so happy with them! Helps keep baby dry overnight Jill K on 21st May 2018
Just got these inserts about a week ago for my 9 month old since he is sleeping through the night. Not sure how much thicker they are but they really help! I love that the smaller insert doesn't snap to the larger. As I have a son I folded that at the front as he wets the most there and since doing that trick he Wales up dry after 11 hrs! Without that trick though he was still damp in the morning though not like before. Huge fan of them now. Kathleen Howg on 9th May 2018
These inserts are FANTASTIC I use them my guys at bedtime and we have yet to have a leak. It's awesome! They sleep better so I sleep better! Definitely a better solution then adding more and more and more layers of inserts until babies diaper is sticking out like 4 inches from their bodies.... so much better to use these! I love the overnight inserts so much Sam on 25th Apr 2018
So impressed with these overnight inserts!
My 3.5 month old wakes up a couple of times overnight to feed but not needing to change her now makes it so much easier to put her back to sleep or even dream feed her. She's still pretty mini so the large size of the insert stuck out the back once and caused a wicking leak, but as she gets a bit bigger and the insert fits more appropriately I can see this being our go-to every night. I only bought one to try it out but I'll definitely be ordering more. Amy on 14th Apr 2018
My baby is a heavy wetter and wakes me up a lot in the night to be changed. With these overnight inserts even the diaper shell was completely dry after sleeping overnight and he also allowed me to sleep for longer stretches. Chelsea on 6th Apr 2018
I am very happy with these Jeremy James on 28th Mar 2018
These inserts certainly are absorbent! My only complaint is that they are quite wide on my tiny 3 month old with skinny legs and I do get leaks because the diaper cannot be sized with the skinny legs hack when using these inserts. I think they will be more useful when he is a bit bigger. Unknown on 26th Dec 2017
I love love LOVE this insert. Keeps my son dry for 12 hours and he’s a stomach sleeper so that’s saying a lot! Plus I don’t have to load up his diaper with a bunch of inserts so he can still move comfortably while staying dry :) Emily on 20th Dec 2017
Still slowly falling in love with these. Finding that I need a little bit more absorbency and sometimes hard to wash. But they are truly amazing. I love the pul backing. Prevents most leaks. :) Stephanie M on 13th Dec 2017
I only got two of these to test them out... I need more! They are awesome. My daughter stays dry from 11pm to 6-7am. So worth it!! Miranda on 12th Nov 2017
These outlast 12+ hours of sleeping baby pee. Seriously the best investment. We have 4 and they are my fave!! Leah on 8th Nov 2017
My lil one is only 3 months but he's such a heavy wetter that he soaked through the regular inserts and his clothes twice a day. Yay to less laundry with these super thick overnighters! Unknown on 6th Nov 2017
Can last all night without a leak! These are great. Stephanie Rivers on 19th Oct 2017
My 6 month old decided he was a belly sleeper. We were experiencing slight leakage out the front. Using these inserts means he wakes up dry after 12 hours of sleep! Unknown on 18th Sep 2017
Our 7 month old gets her overnight at 8:30. When she wakes the next morning at 7 she hasn't leaked and there is definitely still room for pee. Definitely worth investing in some of these! I bought extra because I thought in case she ever gets sick, it's a good option for not having to disturb her if she's resting. So so impressed! Nici on 14th Sep 2017
We started our one week old baby on Lil Helper diapers and have had a lot of success, figuring out the snaps as he grows. Highly recommend using the bamboo liners for easy cleanup. Emily C on 8th Sep 2017
Been using Lil helpers for 10 months now. I couldn't be happier! Such a great company, always some freebies in my order. My little one is a heavy wetter and would always leak through disposables at night. We started using the over night inserts instead and have not had a leak since. Definitely a great product.

I have been happily using a combination of Best Bottom organic hemp and stay dry microfibre diapers on my son for 22 months, but with his most recent growth spurt I started having issues with leaks overnight. He is a great sleeper (13-15 hours a night!) and his diapers, even doubled for overnight were just not cutting it anymore.
Enter Lil Helpers charcoal overnight insert and problem solved. I love them so much I'm switching all my daytime inserts to charcoal, too. So far they are solving the overnight leaking, the ammonia buildup and the diaper rash that was starting to become a regular occurrence. And not only does the overnight insert keep the Lil Helper cover dry for multiple uses, there's the additional bonus that the inserts fit my existing Best Bottom covers for daytime. Win-win!

I purchased the overnight inserts on a whim, not sure they would actually absorb much more than a usual 2 peice lil helper insert set - but I was very happily surprised!!!!
My daughter had recently begun sleeping through the night, up to ten hours at a time, and no matter what I used to stuff her diapers she was leaking regularly. It was depressing because I didn't want to wake her when she was sleeping SO well - but I also didn't want to continue to let her leak (compression leaks from over absorbtion). This was the perfect solution!!!!
I am so pleased when my daughter wakes up in dry pajamas and I don't have to wash the sleep sack every day. These inserts definitely live up to the name. My daughter is a heavy wetter and these still work well for overnights for us.
Very pleased!!! Jennifer C on 16th Aug 2017
I have a super heavy wetter during the night! During the day she is fine with the regular charcoal inserts for a few hours, but always soaked straight through them during the night even when I would get up to change her every few hours. With the overnight inserts I just need to change her once in the middle of the night now and she always wakes up dry! Yay for more sleep! Shona on 15th Aug 2017
