GMD Workhorse
 
Tell me about the GMD workhorse diapers...how are they different? The same? I see them referenced on here a lot and people seem to like them....

As far as I can tell there are just fitteds with snaps or that need pins/snapis. I don't have any but I think people just love them because the are GMD and good quality.

They are made from prefolds and easy to clean. I could care less what brand they are :giggle: They use elastin elastic which holds up better than regular elastic, and being made from prefolds, the cotton wears slower than many other fitteds (that I've noticed). There are a few other brands out there but they're not as well known, that's why GMD is referenced so much. Imagine (at Nicki's Diapers) just released a similar fitted, but there is no sewn in doubler like in the GMD so the absorbency is less. Nana's Bottoms and Tinkle Traps also make them, as well as convert your own prefolds for you :)

I love that the price is good and they wash up really nice. No stinkies!

Yep. They are just simple, inexpensive, and made really well. They are like converted prefold fitteds, but since they are made in the same factory as the prefolds, I'm sure they just make them that way to begin with.

I am an oddball out with these. Tried them on 2 different occasions and just hated the fit on my dd. We had the right size, but they never fit right around the legs- we always had leg gapping.

Tell me more about the conversions. How does it work and what does it typically cost?

This! Love being able to have a whole stash of affordable fitteds. Also, they contain messes really well. Love our closureless.

Tinkle traps will convert PFs to fitteds. I don't own any so I can't speak for how they are.

yep. price and quality. and I need that extra (attached- thank you!) soaker. but only if they fit your LO well. for us they are perfection. I have a wide, solid DS who's a heavy wetter. He has a high rise and still love these.
