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.
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.
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.

Love the fit, the ease if the snaps helps with coverless time at home. This is so absorbent, we just add 1 or 2 hemp inserts for night time and it works great on our 20+ pounds 9 month old baby.
I love these on my babies through the first couple of months. It's nice to be able to go covered for a while. Plus, since they pee so often, it's nice to just have one piece to deal with. The organic white is awesome. Prepping was easier, and I personally love the color. For some reason the seem softer too. My baby was 8.2 lbs when born and the snake worked great beginning that first week. I've used the snapless but prefer the snaps because they are just simpler for the first weeks. It would be nice if there was some extra fabric on the wings so that you could use the last snap longer without getting snap imprints on babies hips, but overall very happy with the purchase.
These diapers are amazing! I received a set of newborn workhorses from a friend when little one was born and they were almost all I used until the 7 week mark. She is the third child to use this set and they have plenty of life left in them for future babies. No blowouts, no leaking and nothing but soft cotton touching her most sensitive areas. I am planning on buying a set of mediums next to stretch my budget.
We love these diapers!
Very absorbent. Appreciate the washing and troubleshooting paper included. Works great for my 4month old. I'll be back to by the next size up.
