Love it! Great for bath, too!Sep 17, 2012
I love our Kushies swim diaper! I love to take baby in the bath with me, but after getting a nice big poop in the tub, I ordered this diaper. Last night she pooped a nice big stinky, and it stayed in the diaper and out of the water and off me! That's all I ask for. The only problem I see with the diaper is that the velcro is positioned so that you have to do the diaper up pretty tight or the hard side of the velcro will poke into baby's skin. Because of that, I would advise ordering the larger size if your baby is close. My baby is 12 pounds, but I'm about to order her a couple in the medium size, which starts at 14 pounds. She's just about to outgrow the small.
Here's the sizing from the package:
Small 6-14 lbs/3-6 kg
Medium 14-25 lbs/6-11 kg
Large 25-40 lbs/11-18 kg
X-Large 35-50 lbs/16-23 kg

Good for little kids, not as good for big kidsFeb 21, 2013
We have two kids and two of these swim diapers. Our daughter is almost 3, weighs 37.5 pounds, and is 40" tall. Our son is almost 6 months, weighs about 23 pounds, and is 30" tall. We have the XL for our daughter and the M for our son.
For our son, this diaper is great. The double connector (both velcro and ties) means that it is really solid. We've had no poop leaks. And the interior is lined in terrycloth, which is excellent. Overall, the quality of the construction is wonderful. It is as good or better than any other baby-sized swim diaper we've had. And if anything, I think that we'll be able to use it beyond the stated upper weight limit of 25 pounds.
For our daughter, it is a different story. Both of our kids are very tall, and of average build for their height, if not a bit skinny. But the velcro on the XL diaper barely attaches around our daughter's middle. The strings tie easily, but she is always complaining that the velcro is too tight. It's a problem, because if you fasten the velcro too far out, then the scratchy half touches the skin. If your kid is very tall and skinny, then the XL might fit them at 40 pounds. But most kids that tall/heavy are older and don't need swim diapers any more.
As a secondary concern, the double attachment mechanism, which is great for a baby, is terrible for an older child. The difference being that the baby gets changed into the swim diaper laying down, and the 3 year old often gets changed into the diaper standing up. I've found the attachment mechanism to be way too fiddly to do on a standing child--especially given that I'm trying to eek as much width as possible out of the velcro.
So overall: A great quality , durable diaper, with a wide range of fun patterns. We've had no problems with leaks for either child. But the sizing seems off near the top end of the range, and you might prefer a simpler attachment mechanism (velcro-only, elastic) for an older child.

Best for possible poos accidentsApr 19, 2013
My daughter has been swimming in a pool since she was three months old and we tried at least 5 different swim diapers. The disposable ones are a waste. Lots of people recommended underwear style ones - but first, they are usually heavily padded and puff up like crazy in water, or they are hard to use. they fit snugly when you put them on but when the poops happen, it's a nightmare to take them off - the poop end up being all over you and the child.
These are awesome for those poop accidents. These diapers do not retain water, they are very lightweight and easy to put on. But the best part - they are easy to take off and you have the poop all in the diaper, not all over both of you. Definitely have two pairs, so if one is pooped in, you can continue swimming with another one.
My only comment is - they peek out from pretty much any and every girl's swimsuit, so be prepare for it.

Great swim diaperMay 15, 2013
By Natasha Hayes
I have tried both disposable swim diapers as well as other reusable/washable swim diapers and this is the best. Fits great, goes on like a normal diaper, quick drying, my son loves it and it keeps the poop in! I read other reviews that score it negatively due to lack of holding in pee, however please realize that swim diapers are designed this way purposely. This is a GREAT product!

Loves Kushies Swim Diapers!Mar 01, 2011
By A. Ritchie
We bought a size med for my son last summer, we used it from about 6mo old to now, he's 15 mo old. He is a little on the petite size but it still fits him now. I also bought a size large for my 2.5 yr old daughter last summer. I cannot tell you how much I love these! The tie makes sure it stays closed and the diaper itself fits snug around the legs to keep messes in. No swim diaper is meant to absorbe urine, or it would absorb pool water too so just a word of caution, this will only keep messes in. We have to change my little one into the diaper right before we get into the pool. But they are fantastic! I love not spending money on disposable swim diapers. We are a cloth diaper family anyway but I think anyone would love these! I will be buying more for the summer for my boy, as we only have one and we plan to be at the pool more often this summer. LOVE THEM!
