Stay-dry on top, waterproof underneath

The top layer of this little wonder is thirsty, naturally wicking charcoal that will absorb a torrent of liquid and will still keep the surface dry.The bottom layer is made of waterproof PUL. Now change your baby’s diaper on your single friend’s prized mattress without any worries!

Lots of tricks up its sleeve

Changing diapers isn’t the only trick this skilled sidekick knows.You can use this mat as a play mat when going to the park or visiting a friend's place. It also serves as a portable sleeping area when going on trips or visiting relatives or makes a great blanket or towel for on-the-go.

Size Matters

Don’t be fooled by its diminutive stature. The Lifesaver Mini is sized at a convenient 18’’ x 22’’ (46 cm. x 56 cm). This means it will cuddle snugly into your diaper bag, without causing a “Code Vesuvius” overflowing situation.

The lesser known sidekick of the Lifesaver.

The Life Changer Mini is Robin, with all of Batman’s Powers

You may have heard of our Lifesaver Mat.The Lifesaver is the show-stealing superhero of our change mat family. It’s flashy. It’s functional. It’s everything implied in its name and more. But what you may not realize, is that the Lifesaver Mat is actually part of a Dynamic Duo. Meet the Lifesaver Mini. The faithful sidekick who has all the same superpowers as the Original Lifesaver, packed into a more portable package.

Your grandkids will fight over the Mini.

You can put it in at regular heat and it (including the waterproof barrier) will be tickety-boo.

The perfect companion for anyone.

Awesome Gift Idea

No matter the sex of the child or whether your friend decides to use disposable or cloth diapers- one thing is for sure- they will most likely change their baby’s diaper every couple of hours. Hey, they might even take the baby out once in a while. Your friend will love this as a baby shower gift. Or a birthday gift. Or if you hate her sense of style and want to give her an elegantly designed, classic piece that does not scream Disney characters.

What is a hero without proper attire?

Newbie Guide

This wash routine is easy peasy! The lifesaver mat - mini can be washed with your regular wash or your cloth diapers; we do however caution against using hot water. For drying we suggest hang drying, however, if tumble drying we recommend using LOW-MED heat.
The design on these things is equal parts simple and genius! There is a waterproof backing that comes in our AH-MAZING prints. Paired with our comfy stay dry charcoal material you find in our beloved cloth diaper inserts. Our charcoal layer is a thirsty combination of naturally wicking material that will absorb a torrent of liquid and will still keep the surface feeling dry.
We recommend hanging to dry but you can always dry on low heat for about 20 minutes. It won't take long!
The change mat is sized at a convenient 18’’ x 22’’ (46 cm. x 56 cm.). Which means, it fits perfectly into a diaper bag and you can carry it on the go!

Our go-to gift for friends who are expecting!

These mats are SO AMAZING and of my absolute favourite baby products! Change pads, seats for wet grass, rain proof cover for the car seat or stroller, etc, and small enough to fit in the diaper bag. We have three so we always have a clean one no matter where we are in the laundry and it is the one thing I always get for friends or family who are expecting. Definitely our go-to baby gift!

Hey Nicole!

Beautiful design and craftsmanship! It’s a gift for my nephew. His parents love it too!

Kiarra, thanks for sharing our Mini Mat with your nephew and his parents. We are truly honored! May it contain the mess for them for many moons to come. We hope that they find it as joyful and practical as we intended our mats to be - because parenting sure is messy!
You rock,

A diaper bag essential. Love this mat. Cozy and absorbent. You can change baby anywhere.

Hiya Emily!
We are honored to be your essential! Packing the perfect diaper bag is an art form and having the tools for parenting in the wild is the key!
May your diaper changes be fast and your wipes always be fully stocked!
Appreciate your words, cheers,

Literal Lifesaver!

This is our second lifesaver mat purchase. Our first one saved us from many a middle of the night open diaper pee with our newborn and kept the surrounding surfaces dry as a bone! We bought a second to keep in our diaper bag. Nothing beats these mats!

Hi Emily!
I'm elated to know that our mats are making life easier for you as parents. There is nothing worse than slogging through those sleep deprived nights and then ending up with pee puddles and splash zones to deal with as well!
Your mats should keep working to keep your home dry and messes contained well past potty training your little one!
