(Hurry, the Fluffy Butts event ends Friday, June 15th!)

We’ve been using our Kushies XP Pocket Diaper for a few months now and loving it. It’s taken awhile for Victoria (19 months) to really grow into it (size Large). While it fits in the waist and especially in the rise better than most, (if not all,) of our diapers, we’ve found the leg openings to be a little large for her.

This hasn’t been much of a problem except when trying to use it overnight, it tends to leak a bit. I think I would also have troubles with blow-outs with her and this diaper if she was still having that kind of poo.

We have “bean-pole” kids, so I’m thinking that the the XP Diaper would be perfect for the chunky-monkeys out there, who’s mamas struggle with finding diapers that don’t fit too tightly in that area.

I love the softness of the waterproof outer layer on this diaper. The whole diaper is made for optimum comfort, with soft elastic leg openings, a nice wide waistband piece and the super-soft fabrics, both inside and out.

Kushies XP Pocket Diaper features a fully adjustable hook & loop closure system for a perfect fit every time. The diaper’s soft and supple waterproof cover provides supreme comfort and flexibility. Gentle contoured leg elastics keep messes contained and a thick and thirsty microfleece insert is included for ultimate absorbency. The stay dry microfleece inner layer helps baby feel dry, cool and comfortable. 

The Kushies XP Pocket Diaper comes in 6 beautiful colors and retails for $18.99-$24.49, depending on size:

We have a chunky monkey. I have never tried a Kushies diaper, but looking at the adjustable aplix makes me want to try a girlie color!


regina p June 14, 2012 at 8:26 am

I’m not the biggest hook & loop bit this is a cute dipe, esp the orange and pink.

Can’t wait to cloth diaper my little bean. I’m so excited to try out different styles & brands.


Pamela g June 14, 2012 at 9:03 am

Awesome diaper. Would definitely like to try it


Danielle June 14, 2012 at 9:33 am

Kushies is one of the top brands on my list of diapers to try. I love their designs and they look like they fit very well. That orange is my favorite color of this style…it’d compliment my little ginger baby!

I love the look of these diapers! There is just something about them that makes me happy :]


Toby June 14, 2012 at 11:07 am

Looks ‘kushie’! ;D


Rachel C. June 14, 2012 at 11:17 am

They look really soft. I’d be interested in trying them.


Christine M Tubbytelly June 14, 2012 at 12:08 pm

I had no idea they had so many other items than diapers.

Kushies were the first cloth diaper I ever tried! They were sized diapers that a friend’s baby had outgrown, so they were on loan to us to ‘experiment with this crazy cloth diapering’!!! This brings back memories :)


Rachel N June 14, 2012 at 12:56 pm

This looks like an improvement over Kushies older style cloth diapers. Those ones did not work all that great but this looks much more trim.


Ruth June 14, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Id love to try these…


Sarah Jane June 14, 2012 at 3:21 pm

My favorite color is “Eat Your Carrots Orange”.

We haven’t tried Kushies yet, but I would love to add another sized diaper to our stash. I like our one size diapers, but it is really hard to find ones that aren’t too bulky for our 4 month old. Sized diapers allow all her cute little pants to fit:)


Brittany C. June 14, 2012 at 4:43 pm

We haven’t tried these yet, but I would love to try them! We’ve focused mostly on one size diapers, so sized diapers would be nice to add to our stash :)


Maria Ivey June 14, 2012 at 6:22 pm

I have not heard about this cloth diaper brand before, but would like to try sized diapers. Sometimes OS diapers are too bulky for under clothes.


Momma Momo June 14, 2012 at 6:44 pm

I’m not a hug fan of Kushies but that’s because I had no idea thy made pockets! I want to try these.

These look so cute! I really like the thin strip tabs!


Saba @ Less is More (Fun) June 14, 2012 at 7:15 pm

So many great diapers to try…


Ashley O June 14, 2012 at 7:17 pm

The closures on this diaper are so clean — I love the lines. I’ve never tried Kushies and this post really makes me want to!


Danialle Meyers June 14, 2012 at 8:09 pm

I actually like the look of the aplix on this diaper. I usually avoid aplix, just cause snaps are cuter! But I wouldn’t mind this one :)


Marion Scharf June 14, 2012 at 9:11 pm

We have a few older Kushies but I had no idea that they had pocket diapers. I have found that the Kushies are one of my husband’s favorites because they are so easy to use but I love the pocket diapers that we have. These might just be the diaper that we both agree on.


Amy L. Norman June 14, 2012 at 9:38 pm

I love the lack of bulk in the middle which makes for a trimmer diaper.


Bekah Kuczenski June 15, 2012 at 4:25 am

These diapers look so cute and I love that it has a hook and loop closure!


Becky Worthman June 15, 2012 at 6:14 am

I know this makes me seem dumb, but in the aplix vs snap debate, I never thought of the fact that aplix is much more adjustable…thanks for the review–I am pretty sure our family will be using pocket diapers…we’l have to add a Kushies to the stash.


Dandi D June 15, 2012 at 7:03 am

Oh, I’m eager to try this diaper. The colors are really cute!


kristi June 15, 2012 at 7:45 am

What a cute diaper and love the design of it. However it is kind of expensive:(


Kelli A. June 15, 2012 at 9:37 am

I was not a big fan of their older style but these look a bit better. Love the colours but I do wish they would have added some elastic to the back waist.


Julie M. June 15, 2012 at 11:11 am

I love the colors that they come in!

I love the colors!


Melissa H. June 15, 2012 at 12:05 pm

These are cute! I love the orange one.


DeAnna C. June 15, 2012 at 1:48 pm

I’ve never tried these and I’ve never tried hook and loop diapers. The diapers look cute and comfortable. :)


Kristi D June 15, 2012 at 4:54 pm

I like the hook and loop closure… very easy to open and close I would assume.


heather c. June 15, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Sounds like something I need to try … I have a little chunky-monkey and I hate the red marks some diapers leave on him.


Amanda Blanco June 15, 2012 at 8:08 pm

Wow, these are super cute! Love how the hook and loop tabs are longer than most other diapers! Would love to try these!


hayley June 15, 2012 at 8:54 pm

i love how trim these look!


Alison Miles June 15, 2012 at 8:55 pm

I have a kushies swim diaper, and I love it!


beth c June 15, 2012 at 9:01 pm

very cute! i love the colors, and the ‘contour’ that helps keep leg messes in!! that is always a plus!
