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 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. 100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.

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.
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. We recommend unscented 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.

Absolutely love the newborn workhorses that I purchased! I’m new to using cloth diapers and these are so much easier to use than I thought they’d be! They fit my preemie baby early on as well, and I haven’t had any leaks or problems. Was so pleased with the product that I also ordered some newborn prefolds to try and have been very pleased with that purchase too!
Reached out about sizing and was responded to very quickly. The sizing however isn’t terrible. I have a 16lb 5 month old so ordered larger. Once washed way too small. What a waste I wanted these to work so badly.
I’d been struggling with leaks at night once my tummy sleeping daughter started holding her pee. These fitters were just what I needed to help keep the sheets dry during her longer stretches of sleep at night.
I bought a few of the organic no closure workhorse diapers, and one with snaps just to see how they were, and I would recommend the no closure version as it is much more versatile in achieving a good fit, especially if your baby is just growing into the size (we have a long-ish 14lbs 3.5 month old). I think our baby produces a lot of urine as she can soak one of these fairly fast, but a bamboo or hemp doubler really helps.
We love the organic workhorse diapers with a cute Thirsties cover! We were doing half workhorse and half prefolds for newborn, intermediate and small. For mediums we decided to do more workhorses and just a couple prefolds that she will wear if there is an outfit that doesn't allow for as much bulk :) That would be my only con about the workhorse diapers, but they contain so well and they are a little easier to put on now that she likes to have her feet in her mouth most of the time!! Green Mountain Diapers is definitely the best diaper source ever!! The education for a newbie on the website and Facebook page are invaluable! Thank you to all the parents that came before us!!!
