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 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 unbleached cotton. 100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.

Also available in Cloth-eez Workhorse Organic SNAP version.

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.

Ditch the synthetics and simplify your wash routine with cotton in a size that actually fits your baby. 
Customize the fit with the snapless no-closure version for perfect containment and comfort. 

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.

100% cotton, exclusive of trim. Edge thread and tag are nylon or polyester.

I want more!

I love the workhorse! It was my first time trying them and was hesitant so I got it on clearance and really wish now I had gotten a dozen more! They are so soft and easy to use. It’s super simple to wash dry and use again! Definitely recommend.

These are my absolute favorite inserts they're fitted just perfectly for my son and with out the closure I can personalize how tight or loose it is which is so nice instead of wrestling with buttons.

Strong mildew smell

These are nice diapers, very soft and well-made, however, they get a strong mildew smell if they are left wet for any amount of time. I tried to air dry them after first getting them to prevent shrinkage and they had a horrible mildew smell. They also don't seem quite as absorbent as some other fitted diapers I have.

Green Mountain Diapers

Thank you for your review. These diapers are designed to shrink to the proper size, as explained in the Quick Start guide enclosed with the order. A larger size should be purchased if they do not seem large enough prior to washing. We are happy to take returns of unwashed items. Mildew is a natural result of damp items not being allowed enough air or light; any cloth item will develop mildew if allowed to stay damp too long. Please feel free to reach out to us and we will be happy to help you find a solution to this problem by contacting us directly at

It doesn't fit as well or absorb as well as I had hoped. I was getting leaks. Honestly, prefolds seem to work a bit better for my little nugget.

Pretty good, but not my favorite.

I bought these to use at night since my almost 3-month old was starting to leak with her regular microfiber/bamboo inserts during the night. While these stop the leaking, the moisture spreads throughout the diaper and causes her to wake up when it's wet. We prefer just to throw a second liner in her diaper for nighttime. I don't consider this a flaw of the diapers themselves, just a preference. However, after about a month of using these only at night, one of the snaps came off. I was pretty bummed about that since they are new and I take good care of them.
