Hi everyone. Tamara here!
As many of you likely know, October is Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month. As parents ourselves, Pregnancy and Infant Loss is a subject very near and dear to the hearts of everyone at Lil Helper. In fact, after a chance encounter with a very special customer on Facebook in 2016, our CEO Mohammed introduced a Guarantee Policy unique to Lil Helpers to address this very issue– The God Forbid Guarantee.
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

Hey Y’all! It’s Erin.
An interesting fact about me is that I have a Bachelors in Social Work. My education and work experience are what led me to write about the diaper crisis. It is also the reason I want to talk about foster parents who cloth diaper.
According to the most recent federal data there are over 400,000 United States children involved in the foster care system. Over 100,000 of those children are within the typical diapering ages.
I feel so honored to get to share the experiences of 3 amazing foster parents who cloth diaper. Sarah and Grace are LilHelper Ambassadors, and Anna is a local friend of mine. As much as possible, I have tried to use their words in this post, because I believe that there is power in what they said without any kind of spin from me.
In August 2016, the Summer Olympic Games were held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In between diaper changes and Peppa Pig marathons, we managed to watch snippets of the games. At the end of the day, we climbed into bed and dreamt of hurdles made out of cribs, canoeing in a bathtub full of rubber ducky’s and mountain biking over a pile of laundry. Which got us thinking… if the Parenting Olympics existed, what would they look like?
So, of course, we had a contest!
The question – “If the Parenting Olympics existed, in which event would you win gold?”!
The prize – a gold Lil Helper Charcoal Diaper (well, we actually call it Mango) and by random draw, the prize went to Fleur Fouchard in Saskatchewan, Canada!
We got so many incredible answers; we had to share them on our blog. Here are some of the best entries we received in our “Parenting Olympics Contest”
