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.
Sizing is approximate. Always wash only one if unsure of size.
Please wash several times before first use. Because this is unbleached organic cotton it 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.

The body is made of organic cotton. 100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan. Standard elastic at legs and waist which may contain latex. Nickel-free polyresin snaps. Edge thread and tag are nylon or polyester.

I primarily use GMD prefolds and pockets. I saw lots of love for workhorses for overnight diapers. Finally took the plunge and I’m so glad I did. Also love the customer service and providing diaper instructions.
I haven’t have a chance to use it yet but I do love it a lots… can’t wait till baby come and has it on him
I've been cloth diapering for 10 years now and snapless fitteds from GMD are my absolute favorite! They're worth every penny. They're easy to use and so absorbent.
I followed washing instructions for the diapers, but each time I put it on it leaks and wets the clothes and bedding.
Thank you for your review. We have reached out to you and after communicating with you we see that no diaper cover was used. When this diaper is used under a moisture-resistant cover you should find that this is a wonderful diaper for absorbing urine and containing most of the solids. Thank you for shopping with us and please let us know if we can be of any further assistance!
When I first started using cloth diapers I had just prefolds and covers. That was a very economical way to cloth diaper for sure, and it worked really well for me. That said, I decided to order workhorses years into cloth diapering and they quickly become my go-to diaper because they were so easy to use. The workhorses also enabled my teenage son to use cloth diapers instead of disposables if I wasn't home to change diapers. I really love these diapers and highly recommend them if it is within your budget to buy them.
