Strategies for weaning after one
Hey Y’all, it’s Erin.
Previously we talked about Breastfeeding after one and the truths about it.
We all know things must come to an end, whether you’re full of guilt or running towards the finish line with excitement.
So what happens when it’s time to wean your child after one?
This post offers support in dealing with everything from simply weaning your child, to handling out right refusal to quit!Read More
Hey Y’all. It’s Erin.
Recently, I’ve been doing “self discovery” journal prompts.
I’ve just been searching on pinterest or google and trying out some that I find.
It’s been my effort towards self care.
Most of the time they’re so deep that I struggle to answer.
“Describe your perfect day.”
“Where do you see yourself in 5 years?”
“What would you do with $1000?”
These are just a few of the ones that I’ve had a hard time answering.
I thought that they’d be easy and fun to answer.
However, self reflection tends to take some time and a lot of thought.
This one really settled on my brain as I thought about motherhood. It made me think about what I would tell myself when I was pregnant.
“What advice would you give your younger self?”
I want to share my response in an open letter to new parents.
Ambassadors Helping Ambassadors
Here at Lil Helper we believe in going above and beyond. The bare minimum is not an option; our job does not stop at just making our customers happy.
When we introduced the Ambassador program, we hoped it would build a community of more people like us – parents who love Lil Helper and who do our best every day to make the world a better place.
We recently had a very beautiful moment happen among our Lil Helper Ambassadors that we wanted to share with all of you.
Lil Helper is a small company started by two friends with really big hearts. As the company has grown it has encompassed a belief that our customers are family and are treated as such. The Lil Helper customer base has become a community all its own, and when someone is in need, the community bands together and amazing things happen.
SO WHAT HAPPENED?
Most recently one of our Ambassadors posted that she had fallen on hard times and that she was excited to have been accepted into the Lil Helper Baby Do Better Program.
Our Baby Do Better Program is a subsidized program for parents who want to cloth diaper but might not be able to find the start up funds. We provide a discount on our daypacks to approved families to help them start their cloth journey. Click here to read more about this program.
This Ambassador was requesting that anyone who planned to place an order use her exclusive referral code so she might build up enough credit to buy her first discounted daypack of Lil Helper diapers. So many ambassadors offered words of encouragement and hope. Many offered to use her code and to share it.
One marvelous Ambassador asked for her email address and bought a gift certificate for the exact amount needed to get the daypack. This exceptional gesture is what Lil Helper is all about and we wanted to celebrate it and share it.
We believe in paying it forward, and we want to publically share this beautiful story and thank the Ambassador who went above and beyond. Your kind gesture is not one that we will forget. <3

How to survive the summer with your baby bump
Hey y’all! It’s Jess!
I hope you are all enjoying the wonderfully sunny days! I love summer. I grew up in California and my heart yearns for the sun all year long.
Something is going around with the Lil Helper crew because many of us find ourselves baby bumpin’ this summer. I am already 7 months pregnant and summer has gotten a lot less exciting this year because I am HOT and SWEATY.
My first was born in the winter so the summer was a lot more bearable. Still, I picked up a few tricks from my first pregnancy and from friends that I will share with you to make the summer exciting again!
Sit back so your swollen and tired feet can take a break while you browse this post.
