UNIQUE FABRIC VERSION ONLY FROM CLOTH-EEZ. Made of organic cotton, we have already removed most of natural cotton oils for easier prepping*. Certified to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex. True quality! Chlorine-free whitened without optical brighteners. Fewer prep cycles needed since the natural unbleached cotton oils have already been removed - but not with chlorine bleach. They are peroxide bathed (similar to Oxi Clean) to remove the natural oils. Why this version? Lovely organic without a zillion prepping cycles!
*Prepping means initial wash cycles before first use. You still have to wash them through a few times, like you would with any new product, but these don't need as many cycles as the unbleached organic version need before they are ready use on the baby. Thus, these are faster to prep ("prep" means prepare).
Replace your stinky microfiber inserts with these. Measure your inserts and compare them to the shrunk measurements on the size chart. Novice light green edge is the most popular size for stuffing in one-size pocket diapers. For fully unsnapped rise, Intermediate light blue edge is good but some still prefer novice when trimness is the priority. These diapers are thick, so the Novice and Intermediate tend to give the best fit and are still much more absorbent than microfiber inserts. You'll love them stuffed or just placed in the pocket with the cotton next to baby. That's fast, easy and absorbs quickly for no repelling issues at all. Try it!
As with all clothing, size recommendations are suggestions and not guaranteed. If unsure of size please wash only one or two; unwashed items are returnable but washed items are not.
Also available in organic unbleached
Also available in conventional cotton in white
Cloth-eez® Prefolds actually fit. A diaper that fits works best. One-size-fits-all really doesn't "fit all". Does a diaper that fits a 2 year old really fit your newborn? Nope. The right size for the right age and weight works best! Diapers that fit and wash easily are diapers you will use. These are the "top of the pile" diapers that you will reach for first and enjoy using.
These diapers are certified to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, as are all Cloth-eez brand cotton products. Additionally, this version of the prefold diapers is made of organic cotton. We purchase certified organic cotton which is then woven to our specifications, then cut, folded and sewn to become these beautiful diapers. Only the cotton itself is organic, not the entire process. We are proud to achieve the OEKO-TEX-100 certification of the diapers. This white version has already had the natural cotton oils removed using a peroxide based, chlorine-free whitening process without optical brighteners. Fewer preparation wash cycles are needed since we have already removed the natural cotton oils. The organic unbleached version still has the natural cotton oils and is tan in color.
Affectionately known as "GMD Prefolds". These are hard-to-find, top quality, heavyweight 100 % cotton twill diapers. These are the real thing, and so very well made. They are far superior to the store bought kind, and will stand up to repeated washings. Be realistic about the longevity of any diapering item and don't be wowed by unrealistic claims. They are durable and last very well but not forever. They wash and dry very easily and never get that "icky polyester stink". The twill weave allows pins to slide through them easily without making holes in the fabric. But you don't have to fasten them. You can just fold the diaper in thirds and place it in a wrap style cover. You will not be disappointed in these wonderful, versatile diapers. You will find the "prefold love" with Cloth-eez® prefolds. Diapering with prefolds that fit really is easy.
Why choose which version? You like organic but either prefer the white color or not want to do all the many preparation cycles that the unbleached organic version require.
Please wash several times before first use. This is called prepping. Instructions are included in your order. Link to more washing information.
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. Use whatever you happen to like that works in your water, but we do strongly suggest fragrance-free versions for use around a baby.
100% cotton, exclusive of trim. Edge thread and tag are nylon or polyester. Made responsibly in Pakistan

I've been using GMD prefolds since my now-toddler was a newborn. At first i had organic/unbleached and white to choose from. I tried out both, and both worked well: the white cotton took less time to prep and shrank less; the organic proved to be softer and sliiiightly more absorbent over time. When folding around with covers didn't work out well for our family, we used these prefolds in one-size pockets with great success. Newborns while on the smallest rise setting; Novice sizes worked surprisingly well through the medium rise/s, to almost a year old! We also used another brand's size small cotton prefolds (gifted) during that time, until babe out-peed the absorbency; when that happened I came back to GMD for Medium prefolds! I tried out this organic white variety, and so far it seems to be the best of both worlds - less prep, less shrinking, but great softness and absorbency! The size Mediums *just* fit in a pocket with all rise snaps let out, and the absorbency is more than enough for my almost-2 year old.
I love these diapers! My 22 lb baby girl fits in the large size great! She has never had a diaper rash, or leaked out of them. I wish I would have done cloth with my other two and will for and future babies!
I bought the xl for my almost 3 year old heavy wetter who refuses to potty train. I cloth diapered my son, now 5, and my daughter almost the entire time. I've purchased prefolds before, but never this brand (or, the correct size) so my previous prefolds success was not too good. I am amazed with these! Super soft and flexible, easy to get a good fit. I top with a thirsties cover, and we've seldom had a leak. Wish I would have gone this route from the beginning, it would have saved me tons of money and dozens of types of cloth diapers. They also wash surprisingly well even in my he washer. I recommend everyone purchase some of the xl size because they are also perfect for changing pads, toddler pillow protector under the pillowcase, cat blanket, lap blanket, etc. Plenty of uses! Photos are my 30 ish pound 3 year old, size xl, folded down in back and bikini twist fold.
I'm currently 3 weeks into my first baby and cloth diapering! These have been great as the flats seemed really intimidating and the workhorses were a bit pricey to get going, as we are doing a hybrid of cloth/disposable in the house. These are very absorbent and easy to work with!
