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. Wide, round "booty" shapes will need to size-up sooner than narrow, flat-bottom shapes, who will stay in a smaller size longer. Very fast growing newborns can skip size small and go from Newborn to Medium. The cotton used to make the diapers was grown organically. They are made of organic cotton. 100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.

One FREE pair of pins is included with purchase of the no-closure version. That means one free pair per order, not per diaper. You re-use the same pair of pins over and over again. If you need more pins or other fasteners, see fasteners.
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. Yes, Tide is ok or whatever you happen to like. 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.

I absolutely love these cloth workhorse diapers! They have made cloth diapering so easy. They are quick to put on and very absorbent. Since they are absorbent all the way around I have not had any blow outs or leaks. I did use disposable diapers as well for the first two weeks and they would leak poop up the back! Gross! The workhorse diaper is durable, easy to use, and holds everything in! Much simpler than prefolds, and easier than using AIO. I add a diaper liner to catch the stool so I don’t have to rinse them over the toilet. I also always add a doubler for extra absorption. I use the AIO diapers as a wrap to keep the moisture in. Simple system, works well.
Very absorbent. I have a long and lean 12 lb boy and it doesn’t quite fit around the thighs, but even then it holds pee, poop, everything! I didn’t prep them at all beforehand as I don’t have a dryer. They came out of the package absorbent but get better with age. I only purchased 10 but would like at least 30 in each size. I have flats that I use during the day at home because the air dry so quickly, but fitters are simple. My stash has gotten more diverse with each child and each type of diaper serves it’s unique purpose. Quality and materials are everything, though.
Love these diapers and they are so easy to use!!
We use these for nighttime diapers for my son (age 2) and daughter (age3) with the former being a super heavy wetter. We usually use a different more pricey brand, but I was trying to save some money, so I went with GMD knowing we have to layer an extra layer into these (or two for the boy). So far, this is working out well, and I get to use all those random doublers I have sitting in a drawer. 4stars only because I have to add extra layers. But if we were to have another, I would strongly consider more GMD.
The extra large workhorse with snaps and the Cloth-eez wrap diaper cover size 3 is perfect for my 2 year old. The Thirsties cover size large work great too! So happy with my purchases.
