I am very excited to introduce my new self-help book "How to sleep train your baby in 452 easy steps. One dad's journey from party animal to partLy animal." Upon printing a small batch (100,000 books) of my magnum opus I sadly realised that your kid will be in university by the time you master my 452 steps. Although I highly recommend this encyclopedia to any parent (available in fine bookstores everywhere for $199), it is slightly impractical. If you are in a hurry and want your kiddo to sleep through the night, tonight, you could give our Charcoal Overnight insert a shot:
It Lasts All Night: Parents have used our overnight cloth diaper insert for 10-12 hours at a stretch.
Absorbency: You get 8 layers of absorbency in our inserts that will soak up minor oil spills if necessary.
Stay Dry: Most kids wake up at night because they feel uncomfortable in a wet diaper. The charcoal fabric is completely stay dry. The only way even you will know its wet in the morning is by the weight on the diaper.
No Leaks: There is an extra gusset on the insert that prevents leaks. Add to that there is a waterproof layer of PUL on the underside of the insert that keeps the cover dry as well.
Ideal for: If your kid is a heavy wetter and the regular charcoal insert is not enough to last your baby through the night, only then we would recommend getting one these bad boys. Or if your kid is over 18 months old.
When we got our trial diaper, I thought the insert that came with it was an overnight one because my son was able to go overnight in it. When I got this insert, I was pleasantly surprised. This is now our overnight Friday night when we are sleeping in on Saturday diaper because it will last that long with no leaks and no compression leaks either. We love these inserts!!!

I bought the overnight insert and added the booster. My 2 yo still leaks at night and the entire bed is soaked. Cosleep so i often end up peed on . at a loss honestly. Was hoping this would fix my issue. Unknown on 7th May 2019
We upgraded to these when our daughter started leaking through the regular inserts. We were using disposables at night but now we use these overnight inserts and they’re great. Caroline on 29th Mar 2019
These inserts give you just that extra bit of absorption needed...and you thought the regular cloth diapers were heavy when full...wait until you feel this guy after 8-10 hours! Unknown on 14th Mar 2019
My daughter wanted to try these inserts because my grandson was wearing disposable diapers overnight and woke up soaked every morning. First night with these and he woke up dry and he and mom were much better for them. So happily he can wear the diapers during the day and night and it is better for him. Unknown on 7th Nov 2018
We love cloth diapering, but our son would always wake himself up by peeing through his diapers. We tried the overnight insert from Lil Helper Diapers and now he sleeps through the night (unless the dog wakes him up). We ended up buying 7 more overnight inserts/diapers so we can once again sleep! Melanie on 19th Jul 2018
I’ve cloth diapered 4 kids, but after many failed attempts at using cloth overnight, I’d resigned myself to using disposables at night. After hearing so many great reviews for the Lil Helper overnight insert, I decided to give overnight cloth one more chance. This insert is amazing!! I love that there’s PUL on the back to stop leaks. It actually works! No leaks after 12 hours. Unknown on 6th Jul 2018
I ordered the overnight inserts for our heavy wetting four month old. They're super soft, fit well in the new rise diapers and the company was awesome to purchase from. We had some compression leaks after 8+ hours but not always and are still working on the fit. Like- ease of use and washing, dislike the bulk and possibility of leaks. I am looking forward to seeing how well they work as baby grows! Unknown on 22nd Jan 2018
I love lil helper and will forever sing praises about them to everyone that is interested in cloth diapering. I especially love their overnight inserts. They are literally the only cloth that lasts us all night. And they and air dry pretty quickly which is important to me since we only have 4 and we hang dry all of our cloth laundry since we don't have our own washer and dryer. Another great reason, they are affordable! I'll give you one more just in case you aren't convinced yet... They (along with all lil helpers charcoal inserts) are the softest thing that will ever touch your baby's bottom. Heck, I wish I could sleep in a blanket made of the same material! Maybe that should be lil helpers next endeavor ;p
Seriously though, buying lil helpers overnight inserts will be the best purchase to help you sleep a lil longer through the night and that is priceless. Elizabeth Ann Hansen on 10th May 2017
These inserts are awesome! I was a little skeptical about them working for us because we have only ever had one overnight diaper work so just a insert inside our Lil Helper covers sounded to me like a recipe for night time leaks. I was wrong and I am so happy I was! I tried the inserts with both my 3 month old and my 19 month old and it held up great for both! For my 19 month old it is completely soaked in the morning but for my 3 month old it isn't as heavy and even feels dry to the touch (a property of the charcoal bamboo).
Last night, I didn't have any covers to use for night time diapers. My stash right now is only big enough for part time diapering two kids, unless I was doing laundry daily which I can't always guarantee. But I did have overnight inserts and flour sack towels clean, so I placed an overnight insert on top of a pad folded FST (to cover the snaps) inside a plain wipe and reuse cover and it not only held up amazingly overnight, but when my toddler woke up, he immediately pooped and no leaks! I know from experience that if that had been a disposable (usually my only choice when all cloth diapers are in the wash), that poop would be all over the place.
So yes, I strongly recommend you to try these! Carolina Gaytan on 6th Jan 2017
