Cloth Diapering

GMD Workhorse Fitteds Question

I have heard great things from several of you wonderful ladies on this board about the GMD Workhorse Fitteds and I plan on ordering some for our LO due November.  Do you ladies recommend the snaps or the ones without fasteners?  We'll use snappis not diaper pins if that makes a difference-- I'm too much of a klutz for pins.

Re: GMD Workhorse Fitteds Question

  • I prefer snaps, but I'm too lazy to even get out the snappi.

  • I'd like to add onto OP's question - for those who use these, do you just use them for newborns or do the larger sizes work well too? I have a stash of BG4.0 already.

  • I use snaps and have found that you can still use a snappi as well for better fit. So DH uses snaps and I sometimes use snappi or snaps depending on mood and wiggliness of baby.

    LO is 14.5 months now and we've been using GMD fitteds since LO was 3 months and outgrew the nb fitteds. The red edged until ~7 months and the brown edged ones since.  They're great for daytime and naps.

  • We use these almost exclusively.  Started with them and prefolds.  Ended up liking these way better.  We do have some pockets, but I don't trust them as much as these.  Never have had a blow out and leakage has only happened to us when we don''t tuck it into the cover properly and it gets his clothes a little damp where it touched. 

    The decision was based on our washing routine.  Figured it was easiest for us to get 100% cotton, seems more forgiving than micro fiber.  (Our opinion exclusively.  My sister in law has a baby three weeks younger and has a stash of Kawaii that she loves.) They are a tad bulky for daytime use, but he's not crawling yet.  BTW, DS is 3 months old tomorrow.  I'm curious how they'll do when he's mobile.  

    I'd suggest closure-less, that way they can fit longer and different body types.  I'm a stay at home dad and this is super easy for me.  We use snappis as well.

    We started with 6 orange edge and 6 yellow edge to try them out. He was born at 7lbs 12oz and was only in the orange for a couple weeks.  We loved them so much we ordered 16 red edge.  It's plenty for us for two days but I do a load once a day, we have one of those small stackable washers, and I find it to be no big deal at all.

    We didn't use them for NB, only from 6-ish months. They are nearly our whole stash. DH and I love them; so easy to use, so easy to wash...cannot say enough. If DS gets much taller before he is ready to potty train, we will buy green edge WHs. He's been in brown edge for at least 6months.

  • Jennyelf would it work to just add a stay dry liner?
    I used sposies at night for DD, but hoping not to with this LO. He is only 5 weeks so we are still changing his diaper every 23 hours. Right now I'm using prefolds and fitteds with stay dry liners.

    We do use a liner, but the sides still get wet and being wet around his hips seems to still irritate him, or so we thought. Last night we stuck him in 2 prefolds with a fleece liner and he slept until 6am! Babies are so fickle! :P
  • I'm hoping my LO will tolerate a fitted with a liner when he i Stops pooping at night.
