October 10th, 2017 is World Mental Health Day

Here at Lil Helper, mental health is a subject we hold close to our hearts. A few of our team members have struggled with Postpartum Depression or Anxiety and we have had many conversations with customers (AKA Lil Helper family members) who struggle with their mental health.

The World Health Organisation estimates that “worldwide about 10% of pregnant women and 13% of women who have just given birth experience a mental disorder, primarily depression”. If you went to prenatal classes, are part of a Mom group, etc… Chances are that 1 in 10 of those Mothers experienced a postpartum mental disorder. To make matters worse, many mothers all over the world feel pressure to “get back to normal” while dealing with their mental disorders. Many struggle in silence.

Today, we ask that you simply check in. Check in with yourself, your friends and family, check in with any new parents you know and even parents of older children. A simple, “Hey, how are you?” might make the world of a difference to someone who is suffering.

Will Smith from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air turning to look at the camera with a confused look on his face as if to say "Lil Helper Seconds? What does that mean?"

“Lil Helper Seconds, what the heck does that mean? Is there something wrong with these diapers?”

There is nothing wrong with these cloth diapers. They are 100% functional and will perform just as well as “first quality” Lil Helper cloth diapers. So what makes them seconds? It could be one of four reasons:

  • They have fallen on the floor of our warehouse
  • They have a small cosmetic flaw
  • They have been returned brand new, never used
  • They have been washed by our team to test out a detergent

Fresh Prince of Bel Air looking really excited and shocked as if he's so excited about the lil helper seconds sale he's going to get 30 cloth diapers

“SAY WHAT? I’m going to get 30!”

Hold up. We want everyone to be able to get this deal so we are setting a limit of 12 diapers per family. It’s only fair.

“That’s actually really cool of you guys. I’m going to place my order right now!”

Postpartum Depression Almost Made Me Quit Cloth Diapering

Cloth Diapering with Postpartum Depression blog title - this blog is about how PPD almost made me quit cloth diapering

The Hardest Part

For me, the hardest part was the guilt.

There are so many feelings of guilt around Postpartum Depression.

Bringing a new baby into this world is supposed to be a blessed time full of happiness. So, when you feel anything but blessed and happy, guilt is often inevitable.

I didn’t deal with postpartum depression with my first, at all. With my second I only had a mild case of baby blues the first couple of weeks. So, when I was struggling with severe depression after the birth of my third baby, the guilt over feeling less joy for him ate at me.
