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 have a 22 month old son (who is 37 inches tall and weighs 35 lbs) who is fully potty trained during the day but still wets at night. He was wearing pull-ups but in an effort to save money (and the planet) we decided to give cloth diapering a try. I wished we did this sooner. This specific fitted diaper is big enough for my big boy (with room to grow), keeps my son comfortable at night and the bed dry. It’s absorbent and works well with the different covers we use (Thirsties, Ecoable). I definitely recommend these!
Whenever I want a diaper to withstand the night or just to avoid any leaks during the day, I use the workhorse fitted. Great fit, and my favorite brand of cloth diapers.
My LO is just now growing out of the orange/newborn size prefolds and wanted to try the workhorse our as I’m trying to EC my LO now. The snap one are convenient and she can grow with these for hopefully another couple of months/few pounds heavier.
I was iffy about snaps, I liked the idea of getting a perfect fit with a snappi instead, but I had a lot of issues with the center piece slipping down and just having an open diaper with a snappi across the belly. Someone gave me verrrrrryy preloved snap workhorses and even though they’d be used to the point of the fabric starting to disintegrate, the snaps still held and I wasn’t even nervous to take them on and off without being super careful. I just ordered newborn and small snap workhorses for baby #2 due any day and I know they’re going to be super convenient’ Snaps or no snaps, you can’t go wrong, but don’t be deterred if you’re worried about the longevity or sturdiness, they’re super good quality!!
Got the organic snap Clotheez for my baby who was leaking through microfiber, bamboo, and hemp inserts. They work wonderfully! I love how soft and absorbant they are. Currently using the Alva pocket diapers as covers (they are a snug fit but do the job) but as he ages (10 months old now) we will likely have to get actual covers. Very satisfied!
