when ds was 3 months old, we were using tushies at night... until i felt a river of pee during one of our in-bed night-time nursing sessions. ds is a VERY SUPER DUPER heavy wetter at night. it was then that we switched to cloth at night. the tushies just couldn't handle his massive amounts of pee. 2 toddler prefolds and a hemp insert, all stuffed into a pocket diaper, with a fleece cover on top -- THAT is what it takes to keep the bed dry.<br><br>
we use tushies during the day at daycare. when i'm feeling not so lazy, we use cloth on the weekend; but when i'm feeling lazy, we use tushies on the weekend. though these days, we let ds decide "paper or cloth or underwear" (we're starting to potty learn).
I had a pack of tushies once that my Dad's friend bought for us. My experience was that they are a lot less absorbent than the standard sposies, but a bit more absorbent than ordinary daytime cloth like prefolds or ordinary fitteds. I didn't use them at night, but I think they would probably have not lasted my kids all night without a change.
I don't think they'd work well overnight. I don't care for them, personally. I believe they are much less absorbent than cloth, and less good at containing poop as well. We've gone through periods of using sposies at night. I like the seventh generation brand best. They do have gel in them, but they never leaked on me. If I were going to use sposies during the day, and for some reason couldn't use g-diapers (which I think are the best daytime sposie option), I would use Tushies. But I think you'd really need to change them frequently.<br><br>
My favorite for nighttime are aristocrats wool soakers. They are really amazing. We've never had a leak with one (using fitteds or prefolds underneath).<br><br>
