I have a set of kushies and I like them alot. They are a little bulkier than the bumgenius that I have, though. The tabs do come undone in the wash, and you end up pulling out a diaper train! I've never had a leak problem and they haven't ripped at all yet. I've been using them for about 4 months. My girl was big like your son, though, so it's almost time to go up a size (she is 7mo now). So if the diapers don't last for more than 6 mo it's not a problem for me!! I also got some cloth liners (they were about $10) to use with them. I don't put them in the pocket like your supposed to I just set them on top and close it up, so when she poops I can pull the liner off, and dump the poop in the toilet! Highley recommend doing this, makes life so much easier! Good luck!

I have the g diaper,but find they leave red marks on my son where the snap on the liner meet the diaper itself any one else find that happening aswell and how do you fix it, doesn't look as though it would feel very nice. I also have Kushies and have a hard time finding clothes that will fit over them because they are so bulky, wish I had of researched cloth diapers more before buying them. Next time I will make my own.

I am using on my little Maxx.. he is 15.8 lbs and 13 weeks old. I have only good things to say about them:) I am using a combo of Bumpkins, little g's and Kushies. I like the Kushies at night with a hemp liner..Never had a leak. I use the g's during the day with both the compostable liners and hemp liners.

I use both Kushies AIO and Classics for my one year old son and love them both. I have never had a problem with the velcro staying shut when I wash them, I just make sure I press the velcro down firmly on itself. I do agree that the AIOs are a bit stiff but they don't leak around the leg openings as much as the Classics. I do recommend getting at least 15, thats how many I have but I wish I had another ten so I wouldn't have to do as much laundry. Also I use the cloth diaper liners Kushies sell and you should try the flushable diaper liners too.

We use them almost exclusively because its what we have. They're okay. I have a 3 month, 14 lbs boy, and (using 10-22 lbs size) I have to do some manuavering to get them fitting so that they contain runny, breastfeed baby poop. If he poops after his dad changes him, I always have a mess to clean up. We have some WAHM diapers that I bought from a lady. They work much better, and they have snaps so we dont end up with that ridiculus diaper chain (AFTER I go through the trouble of making sure the tabs are folded over on a bunch of stinky dirty dipes). But they were cheap. And if they last (which after reading all ya'lls posts, I'm not so sure about), I was planning on using them for another baby.

I had some when I first started cloth diapering and had constant leaks and blow-outs. They also take forever to dry!

okay so I made my own and I changed my mind. Kushies are good, but the ones I made myself absorb much better. So I want to change my vote to buy some on Etsy or make your own.

They serve the purpose well, and if you have the all in ones they are very convient. I have 20 of the AIOs in the NB size,but I prefer prefolds on him. I am not a fan of the outer thick fabric. I have to admit tho I have never had a leak. As long as you have the right size for your baby(10-22lbs) I am sure you will have sucess with them. I had some of the fitteds as well..I found them bulky but did work well.

I used the Kushies Ultra AIO and they were great for like 3 months and then the cover part started to break down, and got full of holes. I loved them for day time use when you are changing baby frequently, they were not so great for naps or overnight we always had leaks even with the extra liners. I also found that by 6 months the dipers were really smelly when wet, I tried stripping them but the smell jsut seems to stay. I was using a wetpail, but I think if I had just used a wet bag without solking they may have lasted longer. they are great for the price though , I have yet to find another AIO at that price.

i used kushies (plain fabric and the ultra ones) with my first, and they were ok. they fit well, but i didn't find them very absorbent, when my son would wet the ENTIRE diaper would get soaked. they also stuck together in the washing machine (it was a diaper train lol). but they never smelled bad. the plain fabric ones were a lot better imo compared to the ultra ones, the waterproof cover started to rip where the velcro was attached on ALL the ultra ones. that being said, i'm going with a different brand of diaper this time around (due in oct) i will probably still keep the normal fabric kushies and use them as a back up diaper, but i'm getting rid of the others.

at wmart online they end up around $11 a dipe. If you are a quick and constant changer the lack of soaking it up doesn't matter too much for daytime use.

I got a bunch of used kushies and I have been using them for a month now. I think they work great and haven't had any problems with the velcro tabs coming undone in the wash. My baby is past the liquidy poo stage so I haven't had any problems with them not containing it. These diapers cost a lot less than many other AIO's so I think they are a great value. They may not have stay-dry fabric in them but they end up being about $13 a diaper which is pretty good!

I haven't been folding it. But she is only 2 months and 13 lbs. I figure that has something to do with it.

Laura - I had the same issue at first... I don't know if you are having the same problem, but we were folding down that liner, as they reccommend for girls, which created a gap-- as soon as we stopped folding that down, the poop was and has been contained since! Give it a try! :)

I'm happy with mine so far. Only been using them two days but have been through the wash at least 4 times now, since I only have 5 currently. Only have had one velcro side come undone in the wash, but it may be that I didn't latch it. From the looks of it, they probably will not hold in poop well due to gappnig issues, but my 2 month old (also roughly 13 lbs) has explosive poops that can't be contained anyway :p no matter what diaper I use. I'll let you know if my opinion changes.

Kushies AOI's are the only cloth diapers that we have used, and they've been great so far! I fold the velcro back on itself for the wash - I haven't had a problem with them coming undone yet - however, my daughter is only 4 months old. So far, though, we are singing Kushies praises!

Ok I see they have AIOs and Covers. The AIOs have the velcro tabs that don't stay and the cover's tabs are the fold back kind which I have found 9 out of 10 diapers don't stay together in the wash either. That is why when I rarely use velcro mine are fold forward. Two years of heavy use and you still have to pry them apart. :D

I guess people like the new utra's, maybe they are different. I don't know. I like g diapers with prefolds.

I guess the newer ultra ones must be better, but I love g diapers with prefolds.

I agree with pp. Did not like the kushies. The laundry tabs don't stay cloths and they will tear up your other dipes. I gave mine away because I refue to do a seperate load for the 5 I had. I also only used them a few times, but they felt so much cheaper and plasticky to me, and they didn't have the stay dry stuff inside. They didn't leak though.

I got a pack for my baby shower as well. They were the velcro ones (I've heard they come with snaps now). And they were the worst of all the brands I tried. The velcro would never stay closed during the wash and all my diapers got tore to shreds, literally. They lasted maybe 6 months before the nylon wore out as well.

some people on diaperswappers say they are great and lower priced! I guess the new one is the ultra and they like that one, but the others they say are good too.
