Faster prepping! The Organic White is only available in the snap version.
All of the versions of 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 back of the snaps are covered by 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.
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.

Again, This is a diaper which means it is the absorbent part. Use a diaper cover (the waterproof part) over this diaper, which is not included.
These diapers are certified to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, as are all Cloth-eez brand cotton products. We purchase certified organic cotton which is woven to our specifications, then cut, layered and sewn to become these beautiful diapers. Only the cotton itself is organic, not the entire process. We are proud to acheive the OEKO-TEX-100 certification of the diapers.
Organic White or Organic Unbleached? What is the difference? 1. The fabric color. 2. The number of initial ("prep") cycles needed. Other than that, they are the same.
This white version has already had the natural cotton oils removed using a peroxide based, chlorine-free whitening process without optical brigheners. 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.
Unbleached Organic is available in both Snap and No-Closure versions but the Organic White is only available in Snap closure.

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 recommend fragrance-free laundry choices.
I love the workhorse! It was my first time trying them and was hesitant so I got it on clearance and really wish now I had gotten a dozen more! They are so soft and easy to use. It’s super simple to wash dry and use again! Definitely recommend.
These are my absolute favorite inserts they're fitted just perfectly for my son and with out the closure I can personalize how tight or loose it is which is so nice instead of wrestling with buttons.
These are nice diapers, very soft and well-made, however, they get a strong mildew smell if they are left wet for any amount of time. I tried to air dry them after first getting them to prevent shrinkage and they had a horrible mildew smell. They also don't seem quite as absorbent as some other fitted diapers I have.
Thank you for your review. These diapers are designed to shrink to the proper size, as explained in the Quick Start guide enclosed with the order. A larger size should be purchased if they do not seem large enough prior to washing. We are happy to take returns of unwashed items. Mildew is a natural result of damp items not being allowed enough air or light; any cloth item will develop mildew if allowed to stay damp too long. Please feel free to reach out to us and we will be happy to help you find a solution to this problem by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
It doesn't fit as well or absorb as well as I had hoped. I was getting leaks. Honestly, prefolds seem to work a bit better for my little nugget.
I bought these to use at night since my almost 3-month old was starting to leak with her regular microfiber/bamboo inserts during the night. While these stop the leaking, the moisture spreads throughout the diaper and causes her to wake up when it's wet. We prefer just to throw a second liner in her diaper for nighttime. I don't consider this a flaw of the diapers themselves, just a preference. However, after about a month of using these only at night, one of the snaps came off. I was pretty bummed about that since they are new and I take good care of them.
