SECOND QUALITY on this page.
Seconds does NOT mean second-hand. These are brand new but have flaws of some kind. Flaws might be stitching issues, fabric flaws, sewing issues, perhaps it got dirty somehow, or other various things that make them not first quality. If you want first quality, buy first quality. Every diaper has something wrong with it. All snaps should be operable and the snaps are warranteed for 90 days, but other flaws are not covered.
Choose snap or no-closure (pinnable or Snappi-fastenable) version. Snap closure on this page. Sold individually.
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. The cotton used to make the diapers was grown organically. 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. Link to more washing information.

Love the workhorse diapers. Great absorbency, and overall fit. Very well made, even if they are "seconds". Would definitely buy more if my wallet would let me. Super quick shipping, with great tracking updates and even checking in same day as delivery to make sure customer did indeed receive their order.
I honestly wouldn't know they were seconds! They look and perform perfectly. My partner was on the fence about cloth diapering before we tried the work horse diapers. His favorite combination is a work horse inside and a Thirsties hook and loop cover. I'm just happy that it's one less thing to debate about.
Can’t tell the difference between the seconds and top quality. Love these diapers!
These were great. I can’t even tell why they were seconds. The product is great quality. I appreciate the wash instructions included. They were shipped quickly.
