Excellent interior design. 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
Faster prepping! Made of the same lovely organic cotton as our unbleached organic version, but the fabric has the natural cotton oils already removed by a chlorine-free peroxide whitening process. They are a creamy-white, not a bright white, because we do not use optical brigheners on the lovely organic fabric. Genuine Cloth-eez made of organic cotton Workhorse diapers, certified to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex. Chlorine-free whitened organic cotton made without optical brighteners.
All of the versions of Cloth-eez® Workhorse™ diapers are made of the same 100% cotton prefold diaper fabric that has been sewn into 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 microfiber 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.
For the same thing in unbleached organic cotton, go here.
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.

The body is made of organic cotton. 100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan. Standard elastic at legs and waist which may contain latex. Nickel-free polyresin snaps. Edge thread and tag are nylon or polyester.
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.
Award winning diaper!

Thirty-five years ago, I used cloth diapers on my two daughters. I used a diaper service that picked up soiled diapers in a bag I left on the front porch every week and replaced them with clean diapers. It was great. When my two grandchildren were born 6 and 7 years ago, I went looking for that diaper service again, but it was no longer in business on the east coast. I tried another local service, but they weren't up to the job. So, I decided to buy and launder my own. I shopped online and found quite a few different types. The best, by far and away, were Cloth-eez Workhorse by Green Mountain Diapers. The snaps, the fit, the size increments, the softness, the unbleached option, the absorbency - all absolutely outstanding. I would not use a different diaper. Now 7 years later, I have yet another grandchild and I'm ordering more to increase my stockpile between my daughter's house and mine. They launder really well and come out clean and without staining. I wholeheartedly recommend Cloth-eez.
I purchased 2 of these to try for a night time diaper. I have only used the one w/out snaps in the past. Since they where on sale I decided to try them. I add a homemade hemp and bamboo insert for extra protection. These hold up so nice I would like to get a few more. My girl is 12 months old and 23# with thick thighs. She has been in the large since 7 wks and is getting a little too big for them now so I decided to go with the xl.
NO LEAKS!! These are super easy to put on (even for a big squirmy one year old) and wash so well. I love these and wish I knew about these for my first two babies!
Absorbent and easy! Great with Thirsties or wool covers.
We love this cloth diaper. The inbleached fabric is so soft and cleans up easy.
