GMD Workhorse lifespan

I'm thinking of ordering medium workhorses. What is their lifespan?

Like everything it would depend on your rotation. Having more versus less, how you wash/dry, etc. if you mean how many children could you use them on (like store between babies)- I've heard that medium is the size used longest for each baby so IMO idk that they'd make it on more than one child (again depending on factors I listed above) without needing at the least the elastic touched up. They're great diapers and super strong. Enjoy!

I think they don't have alot of rise to them. I got my Petite DD Larges without enclosures, because she has a long rise, at about 9m less than 20lbs. She outgrew the rise a few months later. So if your LO has a long rise, size up and get enclousureless to get the max use out of them.
Mom to LO#1 born 1/7/2010 (Cloth diapered since day 1; Part-time EC since 9 months; Daytime PL since 29 months; Nightime PL at 5.5 years) & LO#2 born 12/1/2013 (First diaper was cloth! Part-time EC since 12 months & Daytime PL at 26 months) Checkout my absorbency tests. Thoughts on how long a cloth diaper REALLY lasts. Thoughts on Yeast , here, here, here & here.

Re: GMD Workhorse lifespan

If your question has to do with how long they fit... I bought these to use overnight, and they are already almost too small at about 17-18 pounds. We can probably use them for a while yet, but they aren't roomy. I wish I had gotten larges instead. Since they're inside a cover, it doesn't really matter if they fit snugly or not.
