Hi, my name is Cherie and I have been using Lil Helper diapers for over four years. I love them so much and they just released some amazing new prints! Since I love new prints I had to see if I could justify buying more diapers but, because Lil Helper diapers are amazingly long-lasting cloth diapers, I don’t really need more.
After cloth diapering my youngest and middle girl, it’s safe to say that my diapers have seen it all.
My diapers have been to the beach, taken a road trip up north, and even gone camping with us. Our cloth diapers tagged along and were adored by all who saw them!
My Lil Helper Diapers have stayed with us for close to four years. That is FOUR YEARS of constant use with my 2 girls!
I would add to my collection of Lil Helper Diapers as they came out with new prints or if I wanted more of a particular color. Not because any of my diapers has worn out or need to be replaced.
One would think that after 4 years of constant use some of my cloth diapers might be ready to retire, but that simply isn’t the case. I still use all my diapers on my nephew when I babysit him because even after 4 years they show very little signs of wear!
When I went to take pictures of my old vs. new diapers I the biggest problem I faced was that I couldn’t tell the difference!
The only ones that I could definitively say were new were the ones that I just got in the mail!
After 4 years of constant use, with an admittedly large stash, my inserts have held up well. I told my husband that with how well our diapers have held up we can easily have a few more kids!
Let me show you some comparisons of my new-vs-old Lil Helper Diapers!
I am a fan of the charcoal inserts because they don’t show staining and they kept my kiddos feeling dry all the time.
In case you aren’t sure of what the difference is between the charcoal and bamboo inserts, check out this awesome video from Lil Helper Diapers!
Right out of the package they are as soft as butter! I’m not even joking – they are the absolute softest! And they don’t lose much of that softness in the wash either!
The bamboo inserts are great. However, when I first started with Lil Helper diapers the older generation bamboo inserts would shrink as they were washed so I found myself depending on my charcoal inserts more often.
When the new bamboo inserts came out it was a game changer! They can hold so much more wetness so they are the perfect choice for a long car trip just to make sure we don’t have any leaks.
I do have some staining on my bamboo inserts that I don’t have to worry about with my charcoal inserts. I know you can lay them in the sun and it can help get rid of the stains but I am really the only one looking at them and it doesn’t bother me too much. Following a good washing routine like the one suggested by Lil Helper will help keep your diapers and inserts pristine!
Not only have the inserts held up great but my covers are still in perfect condition too. The one time I had an issue with a broken snap I wrote to the Delight team and they fixed everything because they’re seriously angels! (They even list tons of ways to contact them because they love to help customers with anything and everything!)
The insides of the covers are still soft enough that I use them as swim diapers without the inserts.
(Can I take a second to say how excited I am that Lil Helper has just released SWIM DIAPERS!)
So, as I am near the end of my diapering journey, (unless God blesses me with another lil miracle) I look at my diapers and smile. I feel so blessed to have found, not only a product that exceeds expectations but a company that has become like family!
These long-lasting cloth diapers that are older than my youngest child have so much more life left in them. They will either be used on another of my own babies or passed down to a mama friend who is just starting out her fluff journey.
When you purchase Lil Helper diapers you are NOT ONLY buying the only diapers you will need from birth to potty training for one child, but for any and all children you ever have.
How long have you been using Lil Helper diapers?
