The Parenting Olympics – Why would you win gold?

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”

The $750 cloth diaper your baby needs, apparently.

The $750 cloth diaper your baby needs... apparently. A purple lil helper cloth diaperA customer shared a post from this satiric site with me yesterday on our Lil Helper FB group. It caught her eye because it sure looked like a ‪Lil Helper cloth diaper to her (and a few others agreed) and hey, guess what? When I looked at the image and checked the filename, it WAS a photo of one of our dipes, likely taken from our site who-knows-when (we don’t sell this particular diaper any more but we do sell a whole bunch of other lovely things that are NOT $750).

Our only sorrow is that our diapers DO NOT really have emu thread in them …. any more.

I fought for it, really, I did.

And the feathers in the inserts? Not goose. Flamingo. Anyone who’s anyone knows flamingo down is the go-to for cloth dipes.

Thanks for the laugh, GunkLife.

How does one do up all those snaps on our Lil Helper cloth diaper covers?

The Spectrum of Scary

For those new to cloth diapering, the snaps could scare anyone. How DOES a one size cloth diaper fit?! On the Spectrum of Scary, it’s exactly between putting together furniture from IKEA and meeting one’s in-laws for the first time.

We’ll let you decide which is the more scary end of the spectrum. We don’t judge.

Our mandate at Lil Helper is to make your life simpler, not more difficult. The snaps can—and have—confounded the brightest and best minds of our generation. Some take to them like the proverbial duck to water, while some are less inspired. So, without further ado, today’s blog post.
