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
Faster prepping! Made of the same lovely organic cotton as our unbleached organic version, but the fabric has the natural cotton oils already removed by a chlorine-free peroxide whitening process. They are a creamy-white, not a bright white, because we do not use optical brigheners on the lovely organic fabric.
All of the versions of 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 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. Very fast growing newborns can skip size small and go from Newborn to Medium.

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.
Organic White or Organic Unbleached? What is the difference? 1. The fabric color. 2. The number of initial ("prep") cycles needed. Other than that, they are the same.
This white version has already had the natural cotton oils removed using a peroxide based, chlorine-free whitening process without optical brigheners. Fewer preparation wash cycles are needed since we have already removed the natural cotton oils. The organic unbleached version still has the natural cotton oils and is tan in color. Unbleached needs more initial wash cycles to wash off those natural cotton oils than white does, but that is a one-time thing.

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!

I got the xl size but they didn’t fit my 30lb girl super well. They gave her a sumo wrestler type fit and I like fitted a for the full coverage so these were a no for me for her. I do like them they are fluffy and soft. I put mine up to try with a next baby. I feel like the xl may fit a lot sooner than you would think these are super big imo.
Love these! I’ve been bouncing between prefolds, these, and pocket diapers. These are wonderful for when you don’t want to wrestle your rolling infant or for family that’s just not interested in cloth diaper changes.
I have been using GMD for my 5 children since 2012. GMD are my top recommendation to anyone trying out cloth diapers. I love their prefolds and their flats, but their workhorses are the cream of the crop. After 7 straight years of diapering, we had a long break before our fifth baby was born. I use a lot of flats because they are very affordable, but my husband told me recently that he hates flats (I think he’s just out of practice, but he can still jelly roll a prefold like a pro!), so he allowed me to buy a second set of workhorses which I’ve never had with any other baby! He loves them. Once our baby hit 11.5 lbs, the rise of the yellow WHs was too short so we bought a set of reds. They fit him great with room to grow. I only washed them four times before using them and it didn’t cause any problems but they will get more absorbent as they get more washes. I prefer to use a snappi to secure them instead of snaps because it is a lot faster and easier. Snap wh plus snap cover plus snap pjs is daunting! I only have six so I save them for overnights and on the go. This is a husband approved favorite! I gotta say I much prefer them to even an All-in -One because you can reuse your cover and put them in the dryer unlike AiOs. And of course GMD is the best quality with the longest lifespan of any other diaper on the market. That goes for all the Cloth-eez diapers. And if you haven’t tried the Cloth-eez cover yet, you won’t be disappointed.
Is the best such shame they don’t deliver to Canadá I always have to pass by my family in Miami to get them sent to Montreal
Absorbent and easy to use. Even daycare staff can use them properly. Lol.
