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.

These are the beat. They hold so much and prevent leakage onto the shell. A must for cloth diapering.
Not great due to the bulkiness, but it was expected. Our 15 month old is about 25lbs and we picked up the xl size (which probably adds to the bulk).
I loved these for my newborn. I got some prefolds, all in ones, and workhorses for my newborn set up. While the AIOs are great for night time changes (you don't have to add a cover) workhorses are my definite go-to for the day. Never a single leak, ever. And he pees a lot! He is about 11 lbs at 4 weeks and I feel like I only have a week or so left for the newborn size. I ordered some smalls because I just can't help myself.
I’m happy with these diapers. They do take several washes to prep. However, if I could change something, I would have the flap sewn in the front to give more flexibility (folding) for boys. My 3 month old saturates these in two hours, so they won’t be the true work horses I hoped. They do wash well and are so soft and comfy. Truly wish I had these when diapering my twin girls. They would have been our number one diaper.
So I was using prefolds and thought I would give this a try. I didn't expect to love it, but wow they're amazing. Trim fit, fits my baby really well around the legs and I don't have to fold (which I'm really bad at). I will try the ones without snaps next.
