There were a lot of things I expected to happen when I became a parent.
I expected a lot of sleepless nights and to be tired A LOT.
I expected to deal with some crying and tantrums.
I expected to spend a lot more of my time that I would like, dealing with someone else’s bodily functions.
But one thing I didn’t fully expect, was how much parenting would teach me.
I’ve learned about a nurturing side I didn’t realize I had.
It has taught me I can be a real bada$$ when something threatens the health or happiness of the little creature I created.
It’s taught me to be a little more playful.
But I think the most profound lesson that becoming a parent has taught me, is that “poop happens.”
Now, while this may seem like a simple statement, there are actually layers to this lesson.
First, there is the more metaphorical meaning. As in, things happen that you can’t control. So roll with the punches as best you can when your child decides to hide your keys or paint your dining room walls with their dinner.
But there is also a more concrete meaning to this lesson that parents, especially, are all too aware of. As in, poop literally does happen.
And it usually happens at the worst possible time.
It could be right after you just changed your baby’s diaper.
Or it could be right after you have finally wrestled them into their carseat and gotten them buckled in.
But as frustrating as all your other “poop happens” moments may seem, there is actually one that is worse.
Let me paint you a word picture.
It is about 1,000,000 degrees outside. You are sweating, your baby is sweating, the dog is sweating.
In a stroke of brilliance, you decide to pack up the car and hit the local pool so that everyone can get a little relief.
You get you and baby changed and into the water. It is wonderful. Your babe is splashing happily away and you are both enjoying the relief of the cool water.
But then you see it. The tell-tale face.
And you know that all of your fun is about to come to a screeching halt.
Your life flashes before your eyes. You have visions of children running in panic and the pool being closed down for days.
This, my friends, is the mother of all “poop happens” moments.
Your first instinct is to dash from the pool before your “poop happens” moment becomes EVERYONE’S “poop happens” moment.
But then you remember, instead of a pack of disposable swim diapers, you decided to buy the new Lil Helper reusable swim diaper to try on your little one.
You breathe a sigh of relief, and here’s why:
Inflatable Floaties Only: You know your Lil Helper swim diapers have been designed for a snug fit that ensures that you, your baby, and your unicorn shaped floaty are the only ones bobbing around in the pool.
No Stains: The soft, inner mesh lining is of your swim diaper charcoal colour - so no stains! Even though your baby had blueberries for breakfast.
Multiple Uses: When you were deciding whether or not to take the plunge (see what I did there?) on reusable swim diapers, you had doubts. You asked yourself, “Why would I buy a diaper that won’t even hold in pee? What are the odds that my baby will poop while we are swimming?” Turns out that, much like the ‘Hunger Games,’ when it comes to poop, the odds are never in your favour. But even on the off chance you don’t feel like this is enough, it can also be used as a diaper cover in a pinch. Simply add the liners of your choice for absorbency.
Protection, Now and Forever: Your swim diaper has adjustable snap settings that will allow this diaper to fit your little one from tadpole to leapfrog. This means that if (when) this happens again (and again, and again), you won’t have to worry because this diaper will fit them from about 10-40lbs.
Economical and Effective: Not only does this diaper give you a better fit than disposable swimmers, it can be washed and reused. Saving the environment, your money, and your beach day.
In the pool, at home, or at the beach this swim diaper is a must have under any swim suit or even on its own! Because here at Lil Helper, we know that everyone needs to learn that “poop happens” but they don’t need to learn it the hard way.
Loved my day time trial so turned to these for our swimming needs! Picked because of the adjustable sizes, adorable prints and previous experience! Quality design of diaper exceed our expectations! If you are looking for a swim diaper option this is a great one! Unknown on 11th Jul 2019
After doing lots of research I am glad I settled on this diaper. My toddler will let me put it on him, so that's a win right there. When it first goes on he complains that the legs are too tight, but then will happily swim for 2 hours in it! So far so good. Unknown on 10th Jul 2019
I bought three swim diapers and they are all cute!! This swim diaper can fit from infant stage to toddler stage so i don’t need to buy another one in next few years. Mos on 2nd Jul 2019
I love this swim diaper for many reasons.
1. It grows with bub- my guy is 3 month and this will last him at least another summer
2. It’s lightweight and not bulky like some other swim diapers
3. The prints are so cute (we have Narwals)
4. It doesn’t absorb a lot of water like the horrible disposable ones do
And finally 5. Of course it’s much better for the environment:) Danielle on 24th Jun 2019
My fav aspect of this swim diaper is the fact that they are ONE SIZE fits all! Not having to shop for bigger sizes (sometimes within the same season!) is a great bonus. We are using the same swim diaper we had last year (plus the couple extra we've added to the mix) this year and loving it just the same. Vanessa on 14th Jun 2019
Such an adorable swim diaper with a great trim fit. Our daughter looked so sweet running around the pool in her mermaid swim diaper. Easy to care for as well. Karyn on 12th Jun 2019
I love how compact the diaper is and doesn’t add a lot of bulkiness! It’s also amazing how it is one size for your baby or toddler! The prints are also the cutest too Unknown on 24th May 2019
This swim diaper is great! You don't have to be a cloth family to use this diaper. It's easy to use, slim and fits under a suit, will fit your baby or your toddler, contains the mess, and decreases landfill. Also- the prints are adorable... What more could you want in a swim diaper? Char on 20th May 2019
I love that it’s one size fits all. Both my 8mo or 2 yo can use it comfortably. It also doesn’t add any extra bulk under the swimsuit, unlike the disposable ones. Unknown on 1st May 2019
Mermaids are the best! High quality and fits so well Jessica on 14th Apr 2019
I havent had the chance to try them yet but knowing the great quality all the other products are , i know they will be great for the beach and / or the pool . Genevieve Gascon on 29th Mar 2019
These swim diapers don't just look great, but they are amazing at catching unwanted floaters in the pool :p
Can't wait for the summer. We will be using these every day! Bought 2 swim diapers but might have to add a couple more to our collection ;)
These are even great for non cloth parents as they are waaay better and waaayyy cheaper than the disposable options! Jacquelin on 14th Mar 2019
I purchased the swim diapers after a friend recommended themand was thoroughly impressed, I love how adjustable they are and it doesn’t show stains when she puts them to good use! Also the patterns are adorable!! LOVE Unknown on 6th Mar 2019
Be the envy of all the pool moms with these adorable swim diapers! They work as great as they look, plus they fit your little from a few months old til potty trained! Jessica on 1st Mar 2019
I had initially ordered two for my son (space dinos and parrots) and then had to come back and order one more before we went on holidays. They are so easy to use, fit beautifully, and have such amazing patterns. I recommend them to everyone who wants re-useable swim diapers - and some that probably don't! Kat on 17th Feb 2019
Holds the nasties in well. Enough said :) Unknown on 12th Jan 2019
i love the new patterns! this is our second purchase of the swim diapers because we will need more for a vacation. They work well and look snazzy too! note the fit needs to be more snug than your usual fit as there are no inserts Unknown on 5th Dec 2018
I love that this swim diaper is adjustable.... it’s why I love the lil helper diapers- one size fits all!!
Again, super cute prints. Just make sure you don’t follow your diaper settings.... you need to make this diaper tight so nothing escapes, and there aren’t any liners to fill the diaper.
Totally recommend! Sarah on 19th Nov 2018
I just used our swim diaper. It works just like their other diapers except the fit needs to be pulled tighter since there are no inserts used. our baby is 5 months and was on some of the smaller settings, so maybe if your baby is on the small side it might not be snug enough yet. Otherwise its great and we bought two. Unknown on 17th Sep 2018
We love the swim diaper, the lining is mesh so it catches everything. Fit is great and love the different prints! Unknown on 31st Aug 2018
