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. Long or tall babies or wide, round "booty" shapes will need to size-up sooner than narrow, flat-bottom shapes, who will stay in a smaller size longer. Sizing up for nights is sometimes a good idea, especially if baby is getting close to the weight recommendations for the next size. 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.

They are much easier to deal with than prefolds. For our family it’s worth to pay extra. We used them with our first baby, but just got a few more for the second.
I bought these medium workhorse diapers for my 14 lbs 2 month old to use for nighttime since we use prefolds during the day. These work great! They are very absorbent and faster to put on my baby than prefolds in the middle of the night and in the dark. They are roomy for now but I know they'll fit her well for many many months to come.
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!
