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.

For the same thing in WHITE cotton, go here.

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. 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.

Going Conventional

This last order made it so we decided to go with conventional diapers. We bought the "correct size" of workhorse diapers and prefold for baby to go with babies thirsties diaper covers. Baby just wets through all of it! We found conventional diapers that hold it all so after trying other tactics with the cloth diapers we are going with the conventional. Too much laundry not enough absorbency. We do like to use the cloth wipes.

My new go-to diaper

I’m on my third child using cloth diapers. I haven’t tried this brand before now, but am sorry I didn’t know about them sooner. These diapers are great quality, easy to put on and a super convenient design. I have big babies (last was 9.11oz) so even though I bought size large for my 11 month old, I think I could have made these work for his whole life. The large are the same size as other “one size” diapers I’ve used. They are bulky and I use disana wool soakers over them for daytime so that adds extra bulk but I’d rather have a completely natural fiber diaper that works than a skinny baby butt. Highly recommend.

Exactly what I was hoping for! :)

This is my nighttime go-to. I also like putting these on my baby without a cover when he’s just playing around the house. Very soft, absorbant and well-made!

Quality & simplicity

Really absorbent, quality fitted diaper that seems to run true-to-size. I like the simplicity! It does bulk up underneath most diaper covers, so worth keeping in mind when dressing or buying clothes for a baby.

Great for overnight

Love the workhorses! They’re more expensive than my prefolds but are great for the extra absorbency at nighttime! My babe is around 11 lbs now and I’m still able to get her into the newborns. I’m trying to get away with skipping the size small and going to medium and I think I’ll be able to! I got the newborns with snaps but I actually use a snappi instead sometimes to get a better fit which is why I went with the no snaps for the mediums.
