Natural cloth diapering = breathable cotton next to baby = comfy baby!
Excellent interior design. 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
All of the versions of Cloth-eez® Workhorse™ diapers are made of the same 100% cotton prefold diaper fabric that has been sewn into 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 microfiber stink, no repelling, no special detergents are needed for 100% cotton diapers.
The back of the snaps are covered by 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.
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. Fast growing newborns can skip size small and go from Newborn to Medium. Size small is very close to size newborn, but it is a little thicker and more absorbent, so size small can often be skipped. Or if baby is already just born when purchasing diapers, skip newborn and start in small. Small is bigger than newborn but the size jump is not that much and there is size overlap with small and newborn. If you plan on starting cloth diapers soon after birth but not immediately at birth, then consider skipping newborn and starting in size small. Or get some of each size and use them side by side, putting the bigger and more absorbent small on baby for night or longer stretches of sleep.
Tip: Baby girls tend to have bigger bottoms and size up sooner than boys. This varies of course, and is not always the case. But often, the hip and booty shape does tend to be narrower for boys, who may fit size newborn a little longer. Look at mom and dad's body shape to make your best guess on this.

Again, This is a diaper which means it is the absorbent part. Use a diaper cover (the waterproof part) over this diaper, which is not included.
These diapers are certified to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex, as are all Cloth-eez brand cotton products. We purchase certified organic cotton which is woven to our specifications, then cut, layered and sewn to become these beautiful diapers. Only the cotton itself is organic, not the entire process. We are proud to acheive the OEKO-TEX-100 certification of the diapers.

The body is made of organic cotton. 100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan. Standard elastic at legs and waist which may contain latex. Nickel-free polyresin snaps. Edge thread and tag are nylon or polyester.
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, however we strongly recommend fragrance-free laundry choices.
Award winning diaper!

Worth the splurge for our toddlers! We size up early for absorbancy and stick with the XL workhorses until each kid graduates from diapers. Easy to get on a squirmy kid, the snaps don't snag on woolies, and washes well. We like to boost with a hemp doubler and add a fleece stay-dry. Excellent overnight option, too. We've used GMD exclusively for all 3 of our kids.
I got this when my baby was 1 week old. Very easy to prep, I just washed 2 times then did an absorbency test. Fit so well and absorbency is still enough at almost 6 weeks old so I would say well worth it. If I have a 3rd baby I will for sure purchase more.
I got 6 of the Newborn workhorse and we love them. I use a snappy and a Thirsties size xs and they work well with no leaks. Great newborn buy!
These snap fitted organic cotton unbleached inners are just the best! My son and daughter have both used them and I can't recommend these more.
We have used them for our first baby and now the second one is on its way they did disintegrate somewhat after the first year of use the newborn ones we resold after very minimal use as they out grew them so quickly . now we’re having a second child so we are happy to have them back in our lives and thank you for making this an option for those of us that cared deeply and wanna do everything we can to help support the planet
