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. 100% cotton exclusive of trim. Made in Pakistan.
Also in organically grown cotton here.
Please note that you can use any 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 do suggest unscented choices but that is up to you. This is a diaper which means it is the absorbent part. Use a diaper cover over this diaper, which is not included.
100% cotton, exclusive of trim. Edge thread and tag are nylon or polyester.
Please wash several times before first use. Link to more washing information.
Workhorse is also available in Organic cotton.
I own at least two dozen of these in every size and am currently diapering a third child in them. I think they’d easily last for a fourth, lol. I cover them with either Thirsties or Blueberry, and give them 5 stars for no blowouts, ease of laundering, and longevity. These are a no-frills, do it all long-lasting diaper!
I had high hopes for the workhorse but turns out my child is too much of a wetter and she wets through the diaper and cover by morning. I bought a size up expecting it to shrink, but still shrink too much. Not sure what to do with it now. Bummer.
I use these as my overnight diapers and have since my two year old was a newborn. Excellent quality, great leak protection, and no fuss assembly- just snap the buttons in place and a diaper cover on the outside.
Super absorbancy, easy to use diapers. I really like using snappi's with them so I can adjust the size more easily than if the snaps were built in.
With my first child I used disposables and we had an innumerable amount of “blow-outs” no matter what brand I used. With my second child I decided to do cloth diapering for several reasons, even though it was a bit intimidating and the info about it was overwhelming and all my research lead me to these workhorse diapers being highly recommended. I have now been using them for almost 8 months and I will never, ever go back. We have not had a single blow out in all this time and the snaps and fit on the workhorses make putting them on very simple for me, even though I only have one hand. I pair them with a Disana wool cover and some inserts at night and leaks aren’t an issue. Not only do I love this diaper but I love Green Mountain Diapers period. Everything they carry, from what I can tell, is the best stuff and it’s made cloth diapering easier for me because I trust everything they sell and don’t need to be overwhelmed by everything else on the internet trying to make heads or tails of what’s good. I literally recommend these diapers and this site to everyone.
