award winning cloth diaper, best cloth diaper

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.

Note: This is a diaper. It requires a cover (sold separately).

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.

Workhorse Indeed

These little guys can absorb pretty much anything. They're great for beginners and especially good for younger babies that are going all the time since they have a built in doubler. They are perfectly shaped and easy to use with excellent elastic strength. The only two complaints are they are quite pricey and take forever to dry (I usually do a long dry cycle and then hang dry for a few hours). But they're worth it.

Runs small on my toddler

I'll start by saying I am a prefolds and flats girl. I have been cloth diapering for the last 19 years. Haven't used a disposable in ten years. (So fairly experienced ) I purchased a wool pull on cover for night time diapering on my 34 pound 3 year old daughter. I decided to try these fitted diapers. Absorbancy is fine, but we can only use one snap on each side. She is not thin as a rail but not cubby by any means. So smaller fitting than I expected. Maybe as the elastic relaxes it will give us more room?

Some of the best!!

These fitted diapers are some of the best I’ve used. I’ve tried many brands and these are made of the best material, have longer sides (wings), and are super absorbing! They also have elastic in the back and around the legs to prevent blow outs. I’ve tried a brand from Amazon-they got stiffer as I washed them, they are pretty rough now (not ideal on baby’s skin). I’ve tried thirsties-the wings shrink and they’re one size so the snaps are bulky but my baby is only 3 months and the snaps barley fit around the waist. I’ve tried ozocozy-no elastic at the back and low rise. I’ve tried maybe 4 other brands...none compare to these!! I usually buy one or 2 to try out before I commit to more and I’ve already been back to purchase more of these, they’re that great!! The material softens as you wash them, they are so absorbent (works at night for us), and easy to secure in place. I’ve learned to choose options without snaps because you can get a custom fit each time! I will definitely be back for more!!

Love Workhorses!

I had 10 secondhand newborn size workhorses for when my daughter was born and my husband and I both preferred these over other diapers we had! After she outgrew her newborns, we just moved on to our prefolds. During their seconds sale I snatched up some more newborns for the next babe and some mediums (according to her size on their size chart.) She is 5 months and about 18-19lbs but easily 28”-29”, off the charts tall! If you have a tall babe like ours, I’d highly recommend sizing up! Our mediums still work for the first diaper of the day to catch her poo but we don’t often use them throughout the day because they’re really short on her! Overall, I love these so much!
