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. 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. 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. 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.

The diapers do not appear to be as good a quality as ones purchased in the past, the diapers have pile and bumpy/fuzzy when washed and a lot of shrinkage
Thank you for taking time to review this item. The shrinkage does seem more noticable the larger the diaper. Newer cotton will catch fibers from other items it is washed with and thus can have a pilliness at first. These pills wash out eventually and the cotton can feel smoother as it gets older. Be careful not to wash new cotton that hasn't fully shrunk with other "fuzzy" items like cloth wipes, to avoid creation of pills. But the pilliness does not bother baby and does not affect the function of the diaper.

Once I prepped these diapers, they worked great. It did take about 6+ washes and they're working wonderfully underneath a wool cover. Great for night time use!
This will be the first diaper I’ll use with my son and I can’t wait for his arrival. I truly like that it doesn’t have snaps so I can adjust and modify exactly how he needs it with a snappi or GMD gifted pins.
I ordered the medium size and they fit great on my 16- (now 18- lb) baby. I used the small and newborn size as well, but purchased used, but they were also great! A testament to the quality of the workhorse brand. I did order the organic ones and I think they are a bit more absorbent than the regular.
