When my youngest was born, I was interested in trying cloth diapers.. my main reasoning was anti-chemicals and environmental and not so much budget. I was gifted a pack of these to try out and was excited about them because I was a clean slate as far as cloth diapering experience. They lasted a couple hours on my son and they did a fair job absorbing- we didn't have leaks with them unless they were left on more than a reasonable time.. so that was good. HOWEVER- every time we'd take them off my son, his butt was red and would be at the beginning stages of forming a rash. Some will say that the wash routine was to blame.. or some other reason. I would beg to differ. After giving these diapers many, many chances I just had to give up- I didn't want to put my son in any more discomfort. What I found to be the reason for him getting rashes is that the interior fabric did not do a good job wicking away the moisture from his skin. There are plenty of other diapers that will do this, but the fabric used in this diaper did not and so it was like a wet pee rag was sitting on his bum for 2-4hrs straight.. causing the redness and discomfort. I've had plenty of other diapers since then, from different brands, and they do a great job. Find something else and don't settle on these Kushies because you can get them at a box store and/or are cheap. The likely discomfort and redness your baby may have to endure is just not worth the convenience and savings in my opinion!
