We are often asked, “how do we wash and dry our Lil Helper cloth diapers and inserts?” It’s not as straightforward as you’d think. A bit of water and too little detergent is what most people new to cloth diapering think is the magic formula. Then they end up with the dreaded Funk.
For those who are goal-oriented and don’t have the time to whip through this blog, we have made you an “infographic” explaining the proper washing and drying routine for your Lil Helper Cloth Diapers. Click here to view it. Otherwise, read on! It’s Hump Day and we feel like having some fun!

Links for the Charcoal Bamboo Cloth Diaper:
To remedy a diaper rash, pediatricians recommend to air-out your child’s bum and to keep it dry. Lil Helper’s Charcoal Bamboo Cloth Diaper is ideal for use during a diaper rash and preventing further breakouts.
The Mayo Clinic says that: “diaper rash is commonly linked to continuously wet or infrequently changed diapers, diarrhea, and using plastic pants to cover diapers.” All of these issues surrounding irritant diaper dermatitis (IDD) or diaper rash can be prevented by using our Charcoal Bamboo Cloth Diaper. Here’s how:
Cotton Top Layer: The top layer is a super soft, pre-washed cotton fleece (80 cotton/20 polyester). It provides cushioning in addition to great absorption. This fabric is manufactured in Canada. Use the cotton fleece side when you are out of home, so that the waterproof and wipeable layer touches the surface.
Waterproof Bottom Layer:The bottom layer of the diaper change mat is lined with a waterproof cotton. Basically it is cotton which is laminated with a thin layer of plastic making it completely waterproof and wipe-clean. Use this wipeable surface while changing your baby at home.
Super Soft Top Layer: The top layer is a soft fleece (100% Polyester) that provides cushioning to you baby. Also even when wet, the fleece feels relatively dry.
Waterproof Bottom Layer: The bottom layer of the diaper change mat is lined with a medical grade waterproof material. Now you can lay your baby down for a nap on your single girlfriend’s prized mattress without any worries.
Thirsty Middle Layer: There is a hidden layer of 100% cotton jersey in between the top & bottom layer, that provides an amazing amount of absorption even for the growing bladder of a toddler.
