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.
I’ve been using these diapers as daytime diapers and a disposable at night. I ordered one overnight insert to try and it’s the first time a cloth diaper didn’t leak overnight! It isn’t too bulky but definitely absorbs a lot! Mackenzie on 15th Aug 2019
We received an overnight insert in our last day pack as one of our options as a free gift. Because this company is so amazing! We tried it out and found it kept our son much drier and more comfortable as he sleeps through the whole night now (10+ hours). We knew we had to get a few more overnight inserts as they were just so grand! Natalie on 24th Jul 2019
My baby boy has only ever peed out this insert once and that's only because he was cluster feeding to the max before bed and he sleeps about 8-10 hours a night. We're talking mommas on the verge of crying because she's tired and her breasts hurt cluster feeding. Only once has this happened. It's bulletproof. My son sleeps better wearing this and he feels dry in the morning. Meanwhile, the diaper is feels like it weighs five pounds. He wakes up happy too. In a disposable, he's crying even before his eyes are open and ya the diaper holds the pee but he's wet and cranky. It's great in the carseat too! Christine on 19th Jul 2019
We've been using the overnight diapers with our little man for 6 weeks now and they work great. Super easy to use. No folding and layering required!
Initially we were changing him once through the night when he would feed. Now he's been going longer stretches and the diapers for the most part have been keeping up.
We've only had a couple times where he woke up soaked through. Unknown on 29th Jun 2019
Bought these inserts for my granddaughter and her mom always tells me how awesome they are. No leaks! Best of all, no more disposables at night!! Katharina on 31st May 2019
We finally started using the overnight inserts and let me tell you, they are worth their weight in gold! Can't believe I waited until my little one was 10 months old to get them. We have been using cloth since she was 3 weeks old.
Lil Helper diapers are by far the best and these inserts definitely don't disappoint. I was expecting that the diaper cover would be damp after a 12 hour sleep, but they weren't at all! So so so impressed!! Jacky on 21st May 2019
Bought these thinking they'd "fix" overnight bulkiness. But I find I'm adding the same inserts as I was before I bought these, creating even more bulk. Perhaps another layer of microfiber in the insert would help? I do, however, like the waterproof lining on the backside of them, and that they snap into the diaper. Char on 20th May 2019
These are a must have for heavy wetters. My son (8 months old) can go 10 hours no problem with no leaks.
The only thing is they take a while to hang dry and have a musty smell by the elastics cause they’re tight and strong so I throw them in the dryer so it doesn’t have that smell. Shania on 24th Apr 2019
Have been using overnight inserts for a few nights now and most nights they hold about 8 hours for my 2 month old (she’s a super sleeper!) A couple times she has soaked through the insert and up her back onto her sleeper. She is a back sleeper so not sure if she is flooding the diaper, we have a compression leak or just pees that much! They fit perfectly in the newer rise shells for us I just wish there was something like a bamboo or hemp layer in there. I think a nice idea would be to have the PUL layer with a hemp or bamboo insert sewn on one end and a charcoal microfibre sew in the other end for easy washing and faster drying!

My son is a heavy wetter an there is no leaks in the morning. Better than disposables Try them without any hesitations . They are awesome ! Genevieve Gascon on 29th Mar 2019
My LO is a heavy wetter who sleeps through the night. This insert catches it all! Yay! Samantha Block on 26th Mar 2019
I have never tried a cloth diaper overnight (we mainly use disposable at night) but thought we would try a it with this insert overnight and it is great! Very thick waterproof liner.. she urinates quite a lot and has not had any leaks (plus she sleeps mainly on her tummy and rolls around a lot!). Definitely would like another set to continue to use cloth overnight :) she seems very comfortable with it as well ! Meag on 27th Nov 2018
I was having a hard time with my 5 month old soaking through 2 liners, her onesie AND her sleep sack through the night.
I guess I have a heavy wetter!!
I really love the overnight insert, and she can get 8 hours of sleep now without waking up soaked.
Thank you little helper!! Sarah on 19th Nov 2018
So I will start with saying I have not tried these at night yet as I am really enjoying my sleep right now and dont want to change anything ahah
However I use these inserts for long car rides and shopping trips. And let me tell you these are amazing! No leaks no stinks. Her carseat stays perfectly dry. These are honestly some of the softest inserts I have seen and I'm sure feel great on her little bum!
These inserts give amazing piece of mind Ashley dolan on 15th Oct 2018
I love this product. It has made a HUGE difference in our journey to get more sleep at night. I love that the smaller insert has no snaps so I can customize an extra layer and still give my baby that lil helper stay dry feeling. Our nights just got a bit more peaceful thanks to these inserts! Caitlin on 8th Oct 2018
My baby can hold a surprising amount in his bladder! These inserts are fantastic in my Lil Helper and other brand diapers. The PUL backing keeps pee in the insert so reusing the diaper is possible more often. I use these overnight with a bamboo booster and for shopping trips where frequent changes are harder. Great product and I've ordered more! Unknown on 1st Oct 2018
Our two and a half month old was doing great with Lil Helpers during the day but would pee through whatever combination of liners we tried for overnights. We ordered this to give it a shot so we could ditch the disposables... And he slept THROUGH THE NIGHT for the first time, and didn't leak! I think they're magic. We're ordering extras.

These inserts work great. They are a little bulky for my baby but she’s good all night long in them. Makes night feedings just a little faster which is a win for me! Evelina on 7th Aug 2018
I like how this insert has a PUL backing (it would be nice for some of the other inserts to have this option too to prevent the cover from getting wet.). I also like how it has gussets.
It makes the diaper very bulky, which is fine, except the fact that the fit was already questionable (a very low rise) before the bulkier insert.
There is no way that I could trust this insert overnight with our moderate wetter, there just isn't enough absorbency. It has worked for a 2 hour nap for us.
It would be awesome if an overnight insert could be made with a combo of microfiber and then a fabric that holds more liquid like hemp, cotton, or bamboo beneath. Unknown on 24th Jul 2018
My twins sleep great in these overnight inserts. I found them too bulky in the beginning, so I waited until they were about 12lbs before trying them. The extra bulk doesn't seem to make much difference to them and they sleep the same whether they wear these or pampers. I do add extra absorption in order to make these last the night. We used to do (from bottom to top) the large overnight insert, then a small bamboo liner, then the overnight charcoal booster, then a thin blue bamboo liner. Now we have discovered that the new boosters work AMAZING for extra absorption and are the only layer we now need on top of the big overnight liner. The twins are now 12 months and sleeping the night most of the time. We find that these last the full 11-12 hours now. When they were still having 1 or 2 feedings in the night, we found we would have to change them once at their first feed or their sleepers would be a bit wet when they woke up in the morning. Makes sense as they likely just had more pees in the night when they were taking in the extra fluids. Thanks lilhelper for your great service and awesome products! You are the only cloth diapers we have and I've never even thought of using anything else. Meghan on 18th Jul 2018
