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 cotton. 100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.
Go to the same thing in white: white cotton Workhorse diaper no closure.
also available in Cloth-eez Workhorse Organic SNAP version.
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 recently switched to workhorse diapers with a pull up polyester cover (I had been using pocket diapers but the elastic in the legs and waists went out in all of them) I’m bummed I hadn’t been using this system since my daughter was born! They fit nicely, wash well and she stays way drier than she did with the pocket diapers. I also feel better having the cotton against her skin instead of that micro sued plasticy garbage.
We love our workhorse diapers. With a good cover they are perfect, no leaks & the fit is great. Highly recommend these fitteds to every cloth family.
I was positively giddy when I realized that I had enough workhorse fitted diapers to go on a weekend trip and not have to wash! If you have a wiggly older baby or toddler, try the kind with snaps -- you can get them fastened quickly, not lose one side while trying to snappi the other wing, and if all else fails, your kid can run around coverless for a while before you attempt to convince them it's time for a cover. That's a great breathable option if diaper rash is a concern. I especially love these paired with a hemp doubler for naptimes and overnight. They take a little longer to dry (they're always the last damp thing in the diaper laundry, so I hang them for a while afterward), but it is so worth it!!
We use these every day for our kiddo. He is 15 months and just sized up. We ran with the size medium over the last year and just picked up a total of 24 of these. We use them in combination with a cover. Thirsty's, Flip or wool. We alternate 2 babeegreens wool covers at night. This allows us to wash every other day with a buffer. They have held up like our previous set. They are very easy for other people to use which is great to make cloth more accessible. Blowouts (in combo with a cover) are non-existent. I like that these are very easy to use with the snaps. We send them off too school with our kiddo with a wetbag and spray them down in the toilet before washing. We have been very happy with the quality, ease of use and ease of cleaning. We wash these very often and they just keep chugging.
I used these for my first son along with some other types, for my second kid I got rid of all the others and just got more work horses. Love these diapers! I cover with interlock wool from Bumby!
