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. We strongly suggest fragrance free laundry choices. 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.

I should have gotten the toddler size for my chunky boy because I am uncertain how long these larges will fit him, but they are really great! We tried them for the first time last night and no leaks! I only had to wash them 3 times before they were prepped. I would recommend these!
I've used GMD clothezz prefolds for 3 babies, but for the last we splurged for the more convenient nighttime option of snap fitteds. They are so much softer than prefolds! Just as absorbant, but having the tabs prevents leaks around the legs and tummy. We used the fitteds with Myecobaby wool soakers and longies and they fit great under the corresponding size (NB - NB or M - M). We've bought more and if we didn't already have larger sizes in bleached, we definitely choose unbleached organic instead.
I was looking for a night time solution when I purchased the workhorse. Our current overnights diapers were no longer holding everything & we were constantly getting leaks. I was going crazy. But after finding GMD, reading about these & getting the recommendations of many GMD Facebook fans I decided to give it a try. Omg! I couldn’t be happier! We have truly found an overnight solution that holds it all! I do add a hemp liner & a stay dry on top. Last night we had a real big diaper - heavily saturated & full of poo, we don’t normally get both. But we had no issues whatsoever. It was all contained in the workhorse! Thanks GMD for such a great product!
I love workhorses! They are so absorbent but still fit under regular pajamas. I love the no-closure because it's got extra length on the wings so it lasts just a little bit longer. Paired with a doubler, these are the perfect nighttime diaper.
I’ve been cloth diapering for six years and only using pockets. I couldn’t use those overnight because all three of my kids are heavy wetters (didn’t matter the brand). I came across these fitteds plus a wool soaker and my cloth diapering world completely opened up. I’M SO HAPPY. No leaks and holds in that poo! I use these fitteds with two doublers and a wool soaker over for night. It’s been so nice! I could have gotten a size smaller for my 24lb babe (and it would have fit more snug around her legs), but I like to size up for night. I will be getting a large instead of extra large for day time here soon. I ended up selling a lot of my pockets because this system is so much better (and no more rash issues). I’m very pleased! Worth the investment!
