A day’s worth of diapers
You get not one, not two, but SIX of our wicked awesome Cloth Diapers. Choose three of our adorable prints and three of our beautiful solids. Our diapers are no-prep and ready to go right out of the package, so you can take “diaper prep” or “buy inserts” off the to-do list as well.
Babies pee… a lot. And let’s not even talk about the 💩. So in addition to the diapers, our Daypack includes four sets of extra Tank inserts. Since you can reuse our covers between changes, these extra inserts mean you have the supplies for 10 changes, which should last all day.
You only choose the prints - everything else is done! With the remaining brain cells, go watch some Netflix or get started on lil Apple Mo’s college applications. We’ll worry about getting this stuff to you, fast and free.
The question we get asked most often...
We’re big ole nerds and have done the math on this. Newborns will use more diapers, older babes fewer, and it averages out to about 10 changes a day. Then you factor in laundry. If you are not into doing laundry every day, we would recommend getting at least 2 and preferably 3 packs. That way you can wash every other day and still have a day's worth of diapers to get you through your wash routine. If you want to wait a lil longer between washes (we don’t recommend letting it go too long, because ew) then you will need a few more packs.
Not sure if you can handle a ‘fluff bum’?
These diapers were made for you. Literally. Made for the parent who might typically not use Cloth Diapers if it weren’t this foolproof. No stuffing, no jargon, no swearing. Just a simple diaper that works. 2 guide snaps so you’ll always know how to get a good fit. Stain-free diaper cover-lining and dark coloured inserts. PUL belly band to prevent wicking. Inserts that are easy to use and that have staying power. We’ve made all the hard decisions, your only job is to choose the prints you want!! Gifting this to new parent will at best get them curious about cloth diapers leading them to use cloth and at worst our diapers are used to clear up bad rashes and for photoshoots.
Worried about leaks? Or rashes?
Actually our inserts do. Each diaper comes with a set of inserts we have dubbed “The Tank.” Insanely absorbent and backed with waterproof PUL, these insert can provide 12+ hours of bulletproof leak protection. With the extra set, you get 4 set of Tanks in this bundle. So not only do you not have to worry about leaks but you can forget about diaper rashes too.
Still not sure?
All of this comes with our legendary customer support where emails are answered so quick you’d think it’s your BFF responding, and you always have the option to call in with questions and talk to my beautiful LH people. Plus, we have a tonne of Helpful Guides and info on our Blog to help you get the hang of things. Cloth diapering, like any new thing you try, has a learning curve but our diapers are designed to be intuitive. That, mixed with our overzealous customer service, means you will never be in want of answers.
Look, we know that parents are superheroes and can do anything but whether you are expecting or the parent of a new squish, chances are your brain is in no condition to do math. So leave the number crunching to the nerds, we’ve got the formula all figured out.

Hear ye, hear ye!! Lil Helper diapers DO NOT NEED TO BE PREPPED! Yes, you heard right, They do NOT need to be prepped! Every diaper and insert comes to you ready to be used with all the absorption you will ever need just waiting to wick away your baby’s wetness! (Cue happy dance…) We do recommend giving the new diapers a quick wash at least once in warm or cold water to get rid of any dust that may have accumulated from the warehouse or shipping. You will only need to use ½ the recommended amount of detergent for this short cycle as the diapers are already clean, you are just freeing them of dust.
You know when you buy your kid that super sought after toy and then get it home only to see the fine print that all the amazing accessories on the box aren’t actually included…. Meaning more money and lots of tears (from the kids and maybe even you!). We want to make your life as easy as possible, that is why all our diapers come with a cover AND inserts. So when you purchase a Lil Helper Diaper you get a diaper cover and a tank insert set. Meaning, you get the whole diaper so it’s ready to use without any extra purchases. How's that for easy?
Like peanut butter and Jam, bacon and eggs, or moms and coffee some of the best things come in twos. We designed our diaper with two inserts to give you more flexibility in customizing absorption. You would use the small liner by itself when the baby is under 3-4 months. When the baby grows older then you can use the large liner in tandem with the small one. This gives you customizable absorption as your baby grows.
Unsnapping your diapers and inserts properly will extend their lifespan and keep the snaps in good shape. Here’s a video by Mohammed, Chief Doo-Doo Officer at Lil Helper explaining how to take care of the snaps. Enjoy.
I can almost categorically tell you that your child will not need any diaper creams whatsoever when using our diapers. But even if you were to use diaper creams, here is a good reason why you shouldn't be using any creams. The same impermeable layer of waterproof protection that the diaper rash cream forms on your child's bum is also transferred on the cloth diaper making it water-resistant. Moisture won't be absorbed readily if you use rash creams on any cloth diaper, not only Lil Helper. If the diaper cannot absorb pee or poo then it will leak. We suggest avoiding all creams… yes even coconut oil. The icing on the cake is that ultimately with cloth there is less need for the creams anyways. We change more often reducing wetness and you avoid any of the harmful chemicals in disposables that may also cause irritation on our little ones tushie. Click here if you want to know more!
