Keeps moisture in its place

The bottom layer of the Lifesaver is lined with a medical grade waterproof material. Now you can lay your baby down for a nap on anything from grandma’s heirloom quilt to the persian rug in the guest room, with no worries! I’m not sure why you would… but you can.

Baby stays dry

Hidden deep in the magical depths of this mat are layers of absorbency that will hide a shocking amount of liquid. Plus the naturally wicking charcoal topper will hide stains and keep everything feeling dry.

Big mat = big potential

The Lifesaver XL is a direct result of the love our customers have for our Lifesaver Original mat. But as great as the OG is, our loyal Lifesaver fans have been yearning for something a lil larger. Sized at 56”x40” the Lifesaver XL takes all the awesome of its predecessor to a bigger size and scale.

We aren’t kidding when we say life-saving...

 

One Mat, SO MANY Uses 

 


A play mat when going to the park or a friend's place. Portable sleeping area. Wind-proof stroller cover. Blanket. Mattress Protector. Towel. Sensory bin containment. (Head over to our FB group Lil Helper: Unsnapped and search “lifesaver” to see all the ways our patrons are using this mat… cuz there are A LOT). And the extra surface area on the XL means it has even more life-saving potential.

Easy to use, easy to take care of.

 

Family Heirloom In The Making

 

The waterproof barrier is guaranteed to outlast 200 commercial launderings. Your rugged jeans that you spent a whole afternoon picking out and that give you “internet breaking” curves will tear into rags after just 100 washes. And yes! It can go in the dryer too.

Newbie Guide

We recommend washing your Lifesaver XL on a heavy-duty warm cycle with a recommended commercially available detergent. Always line dry when you can, if not please tumble dry it on low! Any time you are dealing with super mega absorbent materials, we recommend avoiding any sort of fabric softener or dryer sheets that can coat the fabric and cause repelling.
Our new XL mats are a bit under 2x the size of our Lifesaver originals!
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.
Of course they can! They are great for putting on your child's bed at night, or even laying over furniture during the beginning phases of potty learning! They are fast to absorb, so they can catch the biggest of accidents that your toddler may throw at them!
Our Lifesaver XL mats are a whopping 57” x 40” The perfect size for just about anything life throws at you!

Best mat ever!

My kids fight over them all! But the XL is where it’s at! We use it for movie and pizza night to save my rug! Also baby insist it’s the only car blanket he will use. Had to order more so the boys would stop fighting.

Dream come true

I was already a huge fan of both the lifesaver and mini mats, they’re so soft and have so many uses. The XL mat is in another class of its own! It eclipses the other two mats in size with all the same features. We plan to use it for our toddlers twin size bed during potty training as well as about a million more uses around our house!

Your most reliable friend…but XL!

Just when you thought lifesaver mats couldn’t get any better, they got bigger! I can’t wait to cozy up with this on a cool evening. The prints I got (floral and space dino) are amazing. I wish I could get them all!

Lifesaver Mat of XL Proportions!

The Original Lifesaver Mat in an EXTRA LARGE SIZE?? YES PLEASE! I use the Lil Helper Lifesaver Mats all the time, but there have been situations where a larger one would be needed. And now it is a reality! I am in love with the bright Whales print, it is whimsical and fun and my baby spends time just laying on the mat, taking in the graphic details. The waterproof PUL side is so nice to catch any mishaps and the soft charcoal side can keep my baby warm as a blanket. The size is big enough to lay out on the floor and let my new crawler explore a decent sized area. I will not stop at owning just one of these XL Lifesavers!

Most Versatile Mat Ever

I only originally ordered one XL Lifesaver Mat, however, that being said I have my eyes on one more to add to the pile of lil helper collection. This mat is big and beautiful. I use all my mats to this day almost daily that includes the mini and the original. If you ever thought oh hey the original would be great for diaper free time we’ll just wait until you get your hands on an XL. The prints are absolutely stunning and the charcoal is so soft and absorbent and it has the ability to do so many great thing.
