Built-in doubler-flap is attached at only one end for easy cleanup and quicker drying. Nicely absorbent. Quick to put on baby. See this on a baby
Cloth-eez® Workhorse™ diapers are made of wonderful 100% cotton prefold diaper fabric in fitted diaper shape with a built in flap style doubler. Newborn and small have 6 layers in the flap and medium and up have 8 layer flaps, which is age-appropriate layering. Did you ever wish your lovely prefolds were shaped like a fitted? There is no better diapering fabric than the cotton prefold fabric. It washes so easily and wears so well. No polyester stink, no repelling, no special detergents are needed for 100% cotton diapers. The snaps are covered by the cotton fabric inside so no snaps touch baby. The flap style doubler is sewn inside in the back only for quick drying. See pictures on a baby here. Designed by Karen and made exclusively for Green Mountain Diapers. I love cotton diapers, especially prefolds, but sometimes a fitted style is preferred. This is an economy fitted with great low price and no confusing adjustments which create additional bumps and lumpy places. It's not fancy but it does the job really well at a great price. Sized diapers fit better than "one-size-fits-all" diapers because young babies are little and older babies are bigger. Yup, that's true. We made the wings a little longer on the no-closure version to give you more fabric to use for pinning or fastening them but the rise is the same for both versions. Consider baby's shape when choosing size. Long or tall babies or wide, round "booty" shapes will need to size-up sooner than narrow, flat-bottom shapes, who will stay in a smaller size longer. Sizing up for nights is sometimes a good idea, especially if baby is getting close to the weight recommendations for the next size. Very fast growing newborns can skip size small and go from Newborn to Medium. They are made of organic cotton. 100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.
Please note that you can use any mainstream laundry detergent on cotton diapers. You do not need to purchase "special for cloth diapers" detergents. We do not sell them and they are not needed on prefolds or Workhorse diapers. Keep it simple. Use what you would normally use on your regular household laundry. However, we strongly suggest fragrance free laundry choices. This is a diaper which means it is the absorbent part. Use a diaper cover over this diaper, which is not included.
Please wash several times before first use. The white version needs a few cycles before first use. The organic unbleached version needs quite a few preparation cycles to wash off the natural cotton oils before full absorbency is reached. This "prepping" (4 or more wash cycles) is a one-time thing. Link to more washing information.

We recently started using cloth and I tried a couple other brands' fitted before finally going in for these. i was a bit nervous about the multiple sizes. But my goodness, this are SO SUPERIOR to everything else we've tried. They're softer, they wash and dry better, they're designed so that additional absorption stays put and cotton is always against baby's skin. Just better in every way. If you're looking at reviews because you're on the fence, don't be like me, just buy them!! I'm so mad that I bought other products first when all I needed were these, wasting $$ and precious space in our apartment.
Love the workhorses. They are great quality, absorbency is great, and easy to use and clean. Great under wool or a duo wrap.
We've always struggled with overnight diapers since birth and I had seen the workhorse fitteds and brushed them off because I thought they were too expensive. But after loving the prefolds and seeing so much positivity for the workhorses, I finally gave in and bought 6 pack. It's been, literally, an overnight change. Haha. We put a diaper liner (the fleece on outside, microfiber on inside 4 layers kind) on top. No leaks! 1) Diaper liner 2) workhouse 3) diaper cover It's been everything I have been hoping for. We purchased the XL green trim that's currently on a 22 month, 26lb kid with a big belly.
I have been using the Disana tie nappy system for two babies. Those diapers are one of my absolute faves because they are 100% cotton. However, sometimes you just need a little help! Complicated diapers can be exhausting and when you have three little boys, there’s no shortage of exhaustion. These diapers came to my rescue PERFECTLY. They fit wonderfully and we use them mostly without covers so I can change my baby right after he gets wet. I don’t care for snappies, boingos, or pins, so snaps were perfect for us. I’m always scared my baby boy will get snagged on his privates with other fasteners. I have a big guy, 15 months, 20 something pounds, and the large fits a bit snug. Not too tight but we won’t have many more months he can squeeze into them. We have one more snap on each side before it’ll be too small. I hope to potty train by 18 months. If not, guess I’ll be buying the XL workhorse ;)
Makes cloth diapering super easy and was delivered incredibly quickly
