My Favorite Lil Helper

Do you know what I love? When a company I already love continues to strive for innovation and perfection!

Lil Helper cloth diapers have my Fluff Love heart.

I could write a whole article on why Lil Helper Cloth Diapers but I feel they’ve already make a pretty good case on their website.

But If you want the short version:

Almost 3 years ago MamatheFox did a review on Lil Helper. Two years later I started experimenting with cloth diapers and got all of MamatheFox’s hand-me-downs. I was given one Lil Helper diaper and immediately I wanted more! I loved the fit, bamboo inserts, and system of using the liner multiple times.

Which how awesome is it that I fell in love with a second hand diaper!

It definitely sheds light on the life span of Lil Helper and their quality.

Recently Lil Helper upped their fluff game and not only made their diapers even more dependable, which I didn’t think was possible, but also started making a variety of products for all babies, not just cloth diapered.


Charcoal Cloth Diaper

Now sometimes it is scary when a company you love makes changes. There is definitely hesitation and sometimes resistance from us stubborn folks. If it ain’t broken why fit it right?

However, I also highly appreciate companies always trying to be better. Lil Helper engineered a beloved cloth diaper that is working great, yet they stay diligent to keep up with technology and assure customers they are providing the best. Lil Helper recently redesigned their diapers to have a higher back.

It definitely gives my very tall daughter extra coverage and protection, while still fitting close to her body comfortably. She is a very active toddler that is always on the move…or climb. With a higher back I feel her bum stays in and all the nastiness can’t come out.


As for the rest of the diaper, it has all the same great features Lil Helper promises.

Each diaper comes with 2 inserts that attach to the diaper cover with snaps. There are two reasons I love this feature so much. First because the chore of “stuffing” cloth diapers is eliminated. Snapping inserts in a diaper is very quick and self explanatory. I have no worries if the insert is wrinkled or if wiggly baby girl is going to displace the insert and have a mega leak. Secondly, laundry is so much easier. I don’t have to fear reaching into the dark pee filled diaper cave to separate diaper from insert.

Oh and my favorite reason (which I guess makes 3 reasons)…

My husband voluntarily does diaper laundry, and I let him! He has a strong distaste for pulling out inserts and I have a mini panic micromanaging attack every time he tries to help stuff diapers. Since Lil Helper is so user friendly he happily unsnaps diapers for washing and perfectly assembles diapers for wearing.

Day made!

Lil Helper has a variety of diaper inserts that meet the needs of your cloth diapering preferences. And of course, all their inserts are interchangeable with Lil Helper’s adorable diaper shells. From bright solid colors, to playful graphic prints, you are sure to find a style to match your little fashionista.

Cloth Wipes

Now I have to admit I am still working on my reusable cloth wipe game. I go back and forth on whether or not I’m sold on the idea. Lil Helpers sells a 4 pack of two layer bamboo cotton/micro-fleece wipes. They are made with same great quality and materials as their diapers. I loved the size and absorbency of the wipes and was especially impressed with how soft they’ve stayed after multiple washes. The super soft wipes are so gentle on baby’s bums and have multiple uses. I’ve used them for wiping noses, bath time, and sticky hand clean up. The affordable pack of 4 would make an excellent gift for any mama whether they cloth wipe or not.


Reversible Bandana Bibs

A new addition to Lil Helper’s collection is bandana bibs! If you have a baby then you definitely have drool problems. With three gender neutral prints, these adjustable bibs are perfect for any baby, or dog!

I have also been a big user on baby bandanas because they keep my little one fashionable while still fulfilling their purposes. In the winter bandanas are a great layer of warmth and protection where a coat might not cover.

A waterproof layer is sewed in-between the printed cotton and micro-fleece, keeping kids dry all day. I especially liked the soft micro-fleece option when my kids are sick. As gross as it may sound, I’ve caught a lot of snot with the fleece side. It is soft on their skin and easily assessable. As moms know, there is about a two second gap between a runny nose and kids doing something disgusting with their snot!


During that wonderful stage when babies leave their mouth open and the drool pours out by the gallon (how can one child hold that much liquid!?) bandana bibs save laundry and the hassle of changing shirts. They are also great during teething when again it seems like the drool is never ending.


Bamboo Change Mat

Another great addition to the Lil Helper collection is their organic Bamboo Change Mats. If you enjoy Lil Helper diapers then you will also love their bamboo change mat. It’s huge area of 86cm X 91cm can be used in a crib or spread out on a toddler’s bed.

Made with only the best fabric, this mat is pesticide, bleach, BPA, leads and heavy metal free. The medical grade waterproof material sandwiched between the layers of bamboo absorbs 10 time its weight in water. The bamboo/cotton on both sides is organic and provides soft cushioning.

We’ve used this mat for multiple uses such as a play mat, sleeping area, a cushion, and a protective layer in a hard travel crib before we got our and pack n play mattress. We also used it to protect my couch when my son had the flu.

For easy cleaning pop this pre-washed mat in the washer and even finish off in the dryer! This multi-use Bamboo Mat is an essential for bed time, diaper changes, and on the go.

So wether you are a cloth diapering expert or looking for the perfect baby accessories, I highly encourage you to check out Lil Helpers high quality products. Their witty website will have you laughing while also providing you with any answer or resource needed for fluff love mamas!

MacDaddy Milkers – Bath Bombs Anyone Can Afford

It’s another Mama’s Tub Time feature!


This month we are showcasing MacDaddy Milkers


When it comes to using bath bombs, I use a lot. I mean, like several a week people. This can add up in cost over time. If you love bath bombs but cannot afford to shell out $6 to $10 per bomb, but still want a fun and moisturizing bath bomb, them MacDaddy Milkers are the ones for you.


MacDaddy Milkers features a package where you can buy (30) 2.5 ounce bath bombs for only $30!


All of her orders are made to order, so you can tell her to make the batch you most desire. Here are her options:

Her fragrances are:

Bay Rum, Beach, Beautiful, Bamboo Grass, Brown Sugar Fig, Butt Naked, Cashmere Glow, Champagne Kisses, Cherry Almond, Cucumber Melon, Fresh Linen, French Gardenia, Honey Milk and Oatmeal, Honeysuckle, Hot Pink Lime, Jasmine, Kool Water, Love Spell, Pina Colada,Pomegranate, Sweet Pea, Urban Cowboy, Vera Wang Coconut Lime Verbena, and Very Sexy.

The Essential oils she uses are:

Jasmine, Lavender, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Spearmint, Lemon Grass, Citrus, and Eucalyptus.


Once you have selected the smell/oil you want, you can easily place your order. If you want them wrapped for presentation that is a small additional fee. These bath bombs are perfect when you need to buy a large quantity like for a baby shower, wedding party or birthday event. It is perfect for sorority gatherings too, as they make for a fun gift to give your littles or bigs.

What this Mama loves about MacDaddy Milkers bath bombs are

  1. Their price! Anyone can afford them
  2. Even the 2.5 ounce bombs fill your normal size tube with coloring & scent
  3. They have enough moisturizing agents to soften your skin without greasing up your tub


MacDaddy not only makes custom bath bombs, but they have a super collection of Goat Milk Soaps.


The MacDaddy Milkers have their own goats! Their registered Nubien dairy goats give us the milk used in their soaps.


Most of us don’t know that beautiful skin starts with the best moisturizing, skin-loving oils and goat milk soap takes it a step further with it richness and alpha hydroxy. Eczema – gone. Dry skin – gone. Softness and clear skin is the result. – MacDaddy Milkers


Their Goat Milk Soaps are so creamy and luxurious to use. By using a goat milk product you are not only cleansing but moisturizing your skin in a safe and natural way. Once I switched to a goat milk based cleansing bar a few years ago I have not need able to stand liquid soaps – those liquid soaps give my body a slimy feeling. When I use a goat milk product I feel clean and soft.


With the winter months approaching we are coming upon so bitter cold and dry weather. My skin lacks the moisture it requires in the Ohio winters. As soon as I step out of the shower I MUST apply lotion. My poor skin is getting more dry with age. The great news is that the goat milks used in the soaps above are also used in the MacDaddy Milkers lotion line. This gives my skin the final line of defense it needs.


The ingredients: MacDaddy Milker’s super emollient, ultra-moisturizing All Natural Goat Milk Lotion is made with all-natural goat milk, distilled water, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, emulsifying wax, palm steric acid, shea butter, vitamin E (as a natural preservative) and fragrance.

Many bath product companies make Sugar Scrubs. Eh. I have used a ton of them. But the homemade ones never seen as nice as the store bought ones…until now! I am super pumped up about MacDaddy Milkers Sugar Scrubs! Typically a sugar scrub will get clumpy, the oil will rise to the top and leave you will half the jar of just scrub without any moistener, and then I sadly toss it out, feeling like such a waste.  MacDaddy Milkers did some sort of magic on their scrubs and came up with a mixture that is not only smooth, but its soft and full of oil throughout the container. I do not have to mix it up before use like a jar of organic peanut butter, but I can just take some right off the top without fear of getting a dry bottom half of the jar.  I cannot tell you how perfect these scrubs are.

Odds are you have seen a picture or two from their super humorous parenting book. Kelly and Dave started up WryBaby back in 2010 and sarcastic parents everywhere couldn’t be more thrilled. This is your go-to site for those funny, unique and knee slapping Snapsuits (their own word for the one-piece baby body suits). They are the perfect gift to any new or expecting parent.

The book is written by owners Kelly and Dave. While they did not actually DO all those don’ts, they were just afraid they might! You crying gets you thingsneed a healthy dose of humor to make it through most days (okay, everyday). Seeing your little one sporting a Snapsuit with the words “CRYING GETS YOU THINGS” can at least make the uncontrollable tears seem a tad more manageable. We always need to remember in those moments, “this too shall pass”.

These backpacks are based off of their Stuf™ brand of illustrated canvas characters. They measure 12″ x 9″ x 5″ which is perfect for any toddler.


clownFor those moments when your babies little hands need to grab, they grab your hair, your glasses, your nose, wait! Don’t break my glasses! I need those back. No they don’t taste good, gross… let go…like a little death grip…okay now I can see again…where was I…oh yes! When you need to distract your little stinker hand them one of WryBaby’s Stuf™ Friends. They have a huge selection of funny and fun little canvas handheld friends who are perfect for tiny hands. They even have a bell inside to engage them not only by texture but sound as well. Now little one, aren’t these more fun then my glasses?

WryBaby hooked MamatheFox up with a bunch of items to review including: 2 Stuf™ Friends, a  canvas characters bird backback, a Safe Baby Handeling Tips package and a “I”M SUPER” SnapSuit.


WryBaby Snapsuits are not only witty but they are super cozy. As a parent we love when own kids are tagsoft and cuddly. These SnapSuits will make us smile with joy and make your baby smile with comfort. They are 100% cotton, which is the fabric of our lives people. WryBaby is super kind to remind us to “Remove baby before washing”, good reminder, good reminder.

My kids both attend classes at a local Gymboree. We were in music class that day my son was wearing the Instruction SnapSuit. There were 2 dad’s in class that day and both loved it! It was fun with just the right amount of snark.

My son’s middle name is Superman…well kinda. It’s the letter “S”, which as any true geek knows, stands for Hope in Krypton. The “I’m Super” SnapSuit was made for a super-kid like my son. This SnapSuit is available in 0-6, 6-12 and 12-18 months. My son is super petite but tall, so the 12-18 fits him perfectly. He loves the cape! He keeps turning around to see it. WryBaby went the extra mile and has the cape not only attach at the top/shoulder area but also is fitted to the center of the babies back so it wont ride up and get tangled while playing. “Our silky-soft capes are pleated and sewn into the shoulder seams and tacked to the bodysuit in three places so it won’t ride up during intense battles.” – WryBaby

Canvas Backpack

My 2 year old thinks backpacks are the jam. She wants to be like a big kid and wear them all the time. I use toddler sized backpacksinsdie pack as a diaper bag, so we always have one with us. She loves to wear the toddler sized backpacks whenever she has the chance. Only problem with theses bags are that they are made for larger kids, ages 4-5. My daughter, being only 2.5 years old and very slender, has a balance issue with those backpacks. Whelp, problem solved peeps! WryBaby’s Canvas Backpacks are not only large enough to hold my diapers, wipes, sippies, snacks and wallet, but it’s also small enough for my 2 year old to wear while marching to the beat of her own drum. The inside has a handy name label. If you leave it behind somewhere the finder is able to quickly see who’s bag it is, but by being on the inside you are keeping your child’s identity safe from passersby. The shoulder straps are slim and close together, which allows a smaller child to comfortably wear the backpack without toppling over. When my husband saw our daughter wearing it he immediately noticed how perfectly it fit her. Next time I need a backback we will be ordering it from WryBaby.

Canvas Stuf™ Friends

yum tagThese super modern stuffed toys are perfect for babies from newborn to toddler-hood. The soft canvas and stuffing make them fun to cuddle and squish. They have a small bell inside to engage the child audibly. The bell is soft enough so that the adults hearing it don’t want to kick it across the room but loud enough to allow that the baby shaking it enthusiastically gets that fun noise feeling still.  The best part though is it being canvas, because they are super easy to keep clean! I hate when my child dribbles milk all over their cloth toy. Then I make the decision on whether to try and wash it or just toss it (will they notice it’s missing….?). No tossing in the trash thoughts with these. If a small amount of drool/milk/liquid gets on the canvas it is no problem, because it’s CANVAS! Just wipe it with a damp rag. Easy-peasy lemon squeezey.


Now that you have seen all these cool items WryBaby has to offer, head over to their website and order a few SnapSuits for yourself and your friends. Don’t forget to grab a Stuf™ Friend too!
