Oh, hi there. It’s Tamara here. Before becoming a mother, I had never even heard the term ‘The 4th Trimester’.

I thought that pregnancy had 3 trimesters, after which the baby was born and VOILA! Pregnancy is over! What I didn’t understand was that my baby’s need for 24/7 comfort, care, warmth, and soothing would continue long past the birth. The first few months would be especially demanding and difficult.

Dr. Harvey Karp describes this intense period of adjustment as ’The 4th Trimester’.Read More

Hey everyone! Ariel here this week. Have you found yourself wondering about the safety of Lil Helper products?

It’s a completely fair question to have, and something I have asked about pretty much every baby product I have ever bought. I mean, I spent nine whole months growing this little human, of course I want to use the best and safest products possible!

Erin, here.

One of the things that I’ve learned, is that if you’re not intentional, life can pass you by.

It’s really easy to get stuck in a rut or a cycle of repeating the same day over and over.

Creating a bucket list of things that you want to do can be a great way to help you live more intentionally.

However, a lifetime bucket list is super overwhelming to me to try and create. Maybe one day I’ll come up with one, but for now, creating a seasonal bucket list is much more doable.

This post is going to give you a template for making your own seasonal bucket list.Read More

Introducing the Baby Do Better Program

Hi Folks! It’s Tamara here.

This week I have the honour of introducing you to a give-back program very near and dear to our hearts. The Baby Do Better Program!

Baby do better, Introducing the Baby Do Better Program by LilHelper.ca Blog

Some of you might be familiar with our  ‘Baby Do Good’ program. Baby Do Good was put into place when Lil Helper as a company first began back in late 2011. The program saw us donating one brand new Lil Helper diaper for every 3 diapers sold.

We are proud to say that under Baby Do Good, Lil Helper donated several thousand brand new diapers over the 7.5 years that the program was in place. This is a number that we are very proud of!

While Baby Do Good saw us giving back in rewarding numbers, as a company we struggled with the fact that we very rarely received feedback from the individuals who actually received the donated diapers. This is why we ultimately decided to revise our give-back program to something that felt more personal and community driven.

And thus, Baby Do BETTER was born!
