Green Mountain Diapers Review

When I started my journey into the wild world of cloth diapers I knew that I wanted to support other mothers. I wanted to buy natural products. I wanted to find reliable and strong businesses who have a solid and positive reputation. After some initial research I came across Green Mountain Diapers. I took a gander around their website. I was instantly impressed with the easy to read set up, huge selection, helpful tips and information (so important to the newbies like me). Check more reviews like this in StapleSearch.

Who is Green Mountain Diaper?

Green Mountain Diapers “are the leading online resource for natural fiber cloth diapers and healthy organic diapers serving families who choose reusable diapers for over 15 years. Diaper covers with quality natural fiber and organic cloth diapers make healthy baby diapering soft, fun and hassle-free.”Green Mountain Diapers Website

The founder, Karen, is a mom just like me. She wanted to use cloth diapers with her first child but was discouraged by others and felt so overwhelmed by all the information and things to know about cloth diapering. She found out first hand that if you are not using quality products then your journey will not be very smooth. Why waste your time and money on products that will not work? That is just not being a good steward of your money or time, and that is why unbiased reviews are so useful for new mothers. They help you to make the best decisions on all of the new baby equipment you have to buy, which you will have had no experience with until then.

Green Mountain began in 1998. Their mission is “to communicate information about cloth diapering and provide the very best of today’s wonderful cloth diapering products focusing on natural fibers”. – Green Mountain Diapers Website. Now they have grown to be one of the leading leading natural fiber cloth diaper retailers nationwide and became a true corporation.

Why Choose Green Mountain?

There are so many online resources today. You can buy diapers from so many places. Why Green Mountain?

  1. They have one of the leading natural fiber prefolds – Cloth-eez Prefold diapers
  2. They have their own fitted prefolds!
  3. They have FREE SHIPPING at $75
  4. Free How to Wash Cloth Diapers Booklet with every purchase! – ***MUST HAVE FOR NEW TO CLOTH*** (Can buy additional booklets for $4.95 each)

Free Booklet You Say?

With every purchase from Green Mountain Diapers you get the opportunity to get a FREE How To Wash Your Cloth Diaper Booklet. I have referred to this amazing booklet every day since I received my copy. It’s such a helpful and comprehensive resource. It covers everything from how to prep, how to wash, how to select your detergents, how to care for wool, how to change a baby (so great for new parents or parents like me switching over), answers to comment questions like odors, leaks…and so much more. I cannot express how great this booklet is. Do yourself a solid and place an order at Green Mountain and be sure to add the booklet to your order in the “add to cart” option – it will NOT automatically be placed in your shipment. This is such a nice feature. I have a booklet. Next time I don’t need another one so I will not add one; waste not want not.

If you cannot afford to place an order at this time but still would like some essential information, then you can read them for free here: How To Use Cloth Diapers, Washing Cloth Diapers, and New To Cloth Info.

What Does Green Mountain Carry?

Mama’s Experience

I will review a few items which are available through Green Mountain Diapers

Cloth-eez® Prefolds

prefold side

These are the very first prefolds I have every put on a baby. I have used them for years as rags. They are super soft & absorbent so of course they would make great diapers.

sold in dozen or individual quantities

available in white, unbleached, organic

edges are colored for easy identification (example: the smalls edges are yellow, mediums are red…)

free pins with order (need to be added to order through link on this page)

easy to wash and dry – no special cloth diaper soaps needed

Putting a prefold on my wiggly/cant-stop-moving 16 month old proved to be a fun adventure. After a minute of trying I was able to get the prefold diaper properly on him. I think he really loved the feel. It was simple and soft. My son as super thin legs. I was able to roll the fabric around his legs up. Typically people use a cover over a prefold. This helps keep everything in…ya know…everything.

You can use diaper pins to keep a prefold on or a more modern fastener. I prefer the modern version as I get nervous with pins and my cant-keep-still-child.

I love that these are super easy to wash and they can go into the dryer. The fast and easy cleaning cycle is a huge selling point.


Cloth-eez® Workhorse Fitted Cloth Diaper

work 4

Cloth-eez Workhorse diapers are like a fitted version of a prefold. You get soft, absorbent, 100% chlorine free cotton in a fitted diaper. It has all the benefits of a prefold but with the convenience of being fitted.

Newborn, small, medium, large & extra large sizes

Snap or no closure options (no closure is a fitted diaper but you would need a fastener to hold it on)

100% cotton

Chlorine free

Free pins with no closure option

Available in organic cotton

***This product won an award for excellence in 2015 from Baby Maternity Magazine!

Doublers & Liners

On the left is a Maldin Mills Fleece Stay-Dry Liner On the right is a Cloth-eez Doubler size large in white

GMD has a variety of doublers and liners, sometimes referred to as inserts. I reviewed 2 from their vast selection:

Malden Mills Polar Fleece Stay-Dry Liner “One layer of virgin “Malden Mills” 200 weight polar fleece with a finished edge. Line your cotton diaper with this top quality polar fleece and obtain dryness next to baby’s bottom since it allows the moisture to go through it but it doesn’t feel wet. It really works.”

This is the coolest and most interesting liner I have experienced yet. It is made of a special fleece. It keeps you child feeling dry longer. This is the product to get if you are transitioning from disposable to cloth!

Cloth-eez® Doubler

These are a GMD exclusive. Available in 4 options: small white cotton, large white cotton, small organic cotton and large organic cotton. They are available in sets of 12 or individually.

Top - Safety Pins Bottom - Snappi
Top – Safety Pins
Bottom – Snappi

There are a few different types of fasteners on the market for prefolds and fitted no closure diapers. The ones which are available through Green Mountain are:

I have yet to have the courage to hold my son down to get the pins in. I did use the snappi few times now with great ease. I was reluctant to believe it would really hold onto the diaper. Or that it would stay on once my son was running around. It did! With no issues. I am very pleased with snappi.

Blueberry Capri Cover

While Blueberry is not a Green Mountain house brand, it is a brand which Green Mountain carries. Green Mountain Diapers carry several types and brand of diaper covers. We use covers over a prefold or fitted cloth diaper. They keep things in if you will.

You can place a diaper on a baby with fasteners then place the cover over it OR you can tri-fold the prefold diaper and place inside the cover (sorta like how you would stuff a pocket diaper but minus the pocket part). Either way works. It is a personal preferance really.

  1. The first prefolds we ever bought were from Green Mountain. I love that they offer so much hands on support, and photos, to help families.

  2. We love our GMD prefolds! We just got nb workhorses to use with our baby on the way. 🙂

  3. This is a great brand to know about! I’ve heard good things about the workhorse diapers and prefolds.

  4. I have never heard of the workhorse prefolds before, but these diapers look awesome! I love how soft it looks, and the fitted is awesome!

  5. I absolutely LOVE GMD. Once my daughter outgrew her workhorse fitteds, I bought 24 of their large flats. They’re absolutely amazing! They make up our entire stash 🙂

  6. Oh, my! I can’t say enough good things about Green Mountain Diapers! I’ve had my little guy in the workhorse diapers for the past year and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve purchased items from them at least 5 or 6 times. We have saved so much money and he has had very little diaper rash. This company is fast, affordable and helpful. Love ’em!

  7. I love GMD. I use their flats and prefolds. They both wash great, which was a concern for me when I decided to cloth diaper.

  8. I love the workhorse fitteds. So affordable and work so well on my heavy wetter. I wish I found her site before I had a newborn stash.

  9. It was nice to learn about another great organic company. I had never heard of Green Mountain before this.

  10. Their fitted prefolds are amazing. I’m so glad I discovered them before we started diapering our LO!

  11. I am a GMD snob! I won’t use anything but their prefolds, fitteds, inserts and doublers! No need to look any further! Wonderful quality, great customer care, fast shipping – the BEST there is!

  12. We have some GMD prefolds and love them, but we bought them all second hand, therefore I had no idea that a free book came with a purchase! Good to know! 🙂

  13. I’ve always been interested in trying their workhorse diaper. I hear nothing but great things about it, and I love fitteds for night time.

  14. I’ve heard such great things about the softness and durability of GMD prefolds. We have them on our registry and I can’t wait to try them out. I also love that GMD carries other natural diapers, such as smartbottoms and wool covers. They really are a one-stop-shop for cloth diapers. They’re website is awesome because they have pictures of different sized babies in their prefolds, so you have an idea of how each size will fit.

  15. I look forward to using Flatts and fitted Workhorses with our first. Thank you for the info!

  16. It is so good to hear that their washing booklet is useful! I am the most nervous about washing my cloth diapers- I am so afraid to ruin them!

  17. This was great, so much information and I didn’t know you could get the free care booklet too! Thank you!

  18. I love that they have quality products at great prices! We are expecting our second and plan to cloth diaper from the beginning this time. I am really looking forward to putting my order in for newborn and infant prefolds and more flats!

  19. I have never heard of any of these, again which is why I love blogs who do reviews. Most of our diapers are all different brands, styles because I like to try a lot of different ones, and discover ones I love! This will be next on the “to try” list 😀

  20. Cloth-Eez pre-foods are my go-to. The organic cotton doesn’t irritate my son’s sensitive skin and they wash and dry so easily!

  21. wow this is such a comprehensive review! wish i had read this one before baby 1. GMD prefolds with baby 2 is actually what turned me into a cover loving CD momma after thinking pockets were the only thing i liked. prefolds are great and i’d also love to try the workhorses for convenience when non CD people change baby.

  22. It is thoughtful of them to include a free booklet on how to wash cloth diapers. There are many opinions on the subject.

  23. It is thoughtful of them to include a free booklet on how to wash cloth diapers. I had to watch many YouTube videos before I finally decided how I would wash them.

  24. I love that they carry natural fiber prefolds and covers from so many natural brands!! They are so super cute and have so many options!!

  25. I’ve heard great things about GMD, but haven’t ordered from them myself (yet!). I love that they have so many options, especially diapers made with natural fishers

  26. this is so informative. i want to splurge on diapers right now. I love how everything is so broken down. Ive never seen this company before today but Im also new to cloth. This is on my must add to stash list

  27. I’ve been interested in buying but i usually buy in small amoutns and dislike shipping fees but that book has got me interested and i’ve already been eyeing some snappis. looks like I’m taking the plunge!

  28. I love how their site offers so much help when it comes to choosing and caring for cloth diapers. And the images of the diapers on real babies is super helpful!

  29. The no-closure nb workhorse were my absolute favorite for my nb. More customizable fit with different closure options & most nb covers fit great over them. Sewn in doubler means no fumbling with extra stuff either!

  30. Thanks for such an informative post, Mama the Fox! I’ve heard of GMD a lot but have never tried their products. I’m missing out! I like that you have the option of adding the care booklet to your order. There is so much cloth diaper info on the internet. Having everything in a booklet close by to refer to is a great idea for those new to cloth diapering.

  31. Thank you for the info!! I have never heard of Green Mountain Diapers, nor have I tried any of their items. I guess I should think about giving them a try.

  32. Wow how have i not heard of this brand before .. You got .you got my attention and i am intrigued i will be looking into those work horses!

  33. I love my GMD Clotheze prefolds and workhorses. They fit really well and really absorbent. I also love the care booklet.

  34. My daughter is due with my grandson this week and she is going to use cloth diapers. I am doing my homework and thank you for the blog & info!!

  35. Hi there all
