Cloth-eez® Workhorse™ original white fitted diapers. Chlorine-free white 100% cotton. Simple. Effective, pure cotton. Or choose the same thing in organically grown cotton here.
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.

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. 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. Link to more washing information.
These are wonderful diapers. For my first baby, I used pocket diapers with a microfiber lining, and i ended up quitting after about a year because they developed stink issues and gave my baby a rash. For my 2nd baby, I decided to just go back to basics and use cotton with a cover. These are so soft and wonderful, and it feels so good to use lovely organic cotton!!! They work beautifully with the thirsties covers. I've had not a single leak onto clothes. At night, I use the wool disana cover and a hemp doubler. I started them at about 10 weeks but got the size medium b/c my baby girl was already around 14 lbs.
This is my third baby to cloth diaper. I mostly used ai2s and pockets. As this is my third baby most of my traditional pul diapers started cracking and just wearing out over 6 years of hard use! So I have been making the switch to wool and workhorse fitteds. Laundry is so much easier!!! No more snapping diapers or stuffing diapers or matching this brand with that brand. I just grab a fitted and throw it on baby! So easy! I wish I had made this switch years ago and will certainly be purchasing more!!! My baby is 16 months and I put him in a large. It fits great. He doesn't pee so much that his diaper is soaked during the day. It's bulkier than his trim ai2 but for wool it isn't too bulky! It's about what I expected and I love them!
The workhorse diapers are so easy to put on and are super absorbant too. They fit my 1.5 year old and keep all the poop in! I love that they are 100% cotton so I don’t have to worry about stink or using special diaper creams. I hang them to dry and they don’t get too stiff or rough.
My other experience of Cloth eez was with the large brown edged prefolds, which quilted up great and are wonderfully absorbent. We use those on our three year old boy for daytime, and for our 6 month old boy for bedtime. But I wanted something that would work as an everyday fitted for our 6 month old, with the ease of a snap for when we're away from home. Given his size (20 lbs but long), I thought a medium was a natural "step down." These only last about an hour before he's leaking through. Definitely not any good for when we're out and about.
