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.

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.

I bought These diapers in 2017 (or 2016) and they are extremely good at holding baby pee. New ones are much thinner and get soaked right away. I feel like I need to add another insert/liner to the diaper I got in 2020. It’s sad that the prices went up, GMD now ships only 6 instead of 10 diapers. If feels like the product have changed to encourage people buy more diapers not because they are great but because otherwise babies stay soaked quickly. I used to recommend GMD on all Facebook groups and among my friends. I’m afraid I cannot do that now.
Thank you for your review. We are sorry you are unhappy with your new diapers but I am confident that once they are fully prepped they will be more absorbent than they are. It takes a while to remove the natural cotton oils from organic cotton diapers and until that happens they will not be as absorbent as your older diapers. Well cared-for diapers such as yours, at three years old, will be more absorbent than 2 week old organic cotton diapers because of the natural cotton oils in all of the layering of the diaper. The diapers have not changed; they are still made exactly the same. Thanks you for shopping with us.
Overall, I think it's a great product but I do wish the wings were just a bit longer. My daughter was born at 8 lbs 4 oz and she quickly packed on the pounds but even when she was well within the weight range getting the wings around her was a bit difficult because they were so short. They ended up pulling when she moved which then left the Snappi digging into her skin. It's a bummer because I chose the snapless so I could get a more customized fit, and perhaps longer life, out of these diapers but if I had to do it again I'd probably go with the ones with snaps. I would definitely recommend they look into making the wings just a bit longer so it was a bit easier to fasten.
Love love these diapers. I'm just sad it took me 3 babies to finally find them!! So easy to wash, very good quality, thank you for an amazing product.
The fitted workhorse diaper was just what I needed to complete my night time diapering needs. What was really great is that the order arrived quickly. Kudos to Green Mountain Diapers for their speedy delivery.
These are easily my favorite diapers. They are easy to wash and very absorbent.
