Definition: The diaper is the absorbent part and the cover is the waterproof part that goes over the diaper.
This kit is for those who want to give cloth diapering a try. You might decide that buying 2, 3 or 4 of these kits might make sense. The newborn diapers will get usually get outgrown between 6 or so weeks old but the covers will still fit over size small Workhorse and size small prefolds, too. The wipes keep on going. The picture shows the items after washing.
This kit includes:
Organic Unbleached or Organic White? What is the difference? 1. The fabric color. 2. The number of initial ("prep") cycles needed. Other than that, they are the same. The 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. Unbleached needs more initial wash cycles to wash off those natural cotton oils than white does, but that is a one-time thing. Countries of origin found here.

After having purchased many different cloth diaper brands off of Amazon, I’d been using them on my newborn with varied results. I’ve found that (at least for a newborn) they ALL leaked from the leg gussets at some point. I just shrugged it off, assuming that this was just part of cloth diapering. After running across a blog where it was mentioned that Green Mountain Diapers were the best, I bit the bullet and bought “one more brand”-the Give It A Try kit. I now wish with my whole heart I hadn’t wasted the money on the other brands! JUST BECAUSE THE PRINTS ARE CUTE DOESN'T MEAN THE BRANDS ARE NEAR THE QUALITY OF GMD! I haven’t had ONE leak with my GMD newborn kit. Not one! I find myself washing them more often and have not even been using the other cloth diaper brands because these are just a whole other level of goodness. I will, in the future, be investing in all GMD products and getting rid of these other ones I have. I can’t speak highly enough of them. If you’re on the fence, BUY THEM. You will NOT regret it (and you may even thank me at 3am when your baby isn’t leaking all over the bed anymore)!
Before buying this test kit, I had done tons of research on cloth diapers - what kinds there are, how to use them, etc - and honestly was ready to settle for some alternate brand pocket diaper just because i was convinced that other more natural diapers would have too much of a learning curve for me to be able to use them correctly. Well, once I discovered GMD and the “give it a try” kit i was elated! The workhorse diapers are SO easy to use, and I feel great knowing that my little one didn’t wearing synthetic material. I didn’t want to invest in a full set of diapers at once, so this was perfect, but now that I’ve tried it out I’m ready to jump on board and am actually thinking about trying prefolds (something that seemed intimidating before!). If you’re on the fence about cloth diapering, this give it a try kit is the perfect investment without feeling too invested.
This kit was perfect for me as a new mom wanting to try cloth. I originally considered it at the start of the pandemic, and even more so when stores kept running out of toilet paper, paper diapers, etc. I am so glad these workhorse fitted and cloth-eez wraps were the first that I tried. They were so easy. Now I love cloth and couldn’t imagine using paper.
These diapers are great. True to size, absorbs well, prevents leakage even when soiled. Very happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend. Cloth diapering made easy and cleans well too no stains so far.
