Cloth or Disposable.... What Will You Use?

Have you thought about what kind of diapers you will use for baby?  If so, will it be cloth or disposable?

We have been cloth diapering for a little over 5 weeks since we used disposables in the hospital and have found it to be easier than we expected it to be. If either of you have any questions feel free to ask them and I will try to answer them. The first few weeks of diaper changes are an experiment no matter what you use. Even though I have a little girl, I have still gotten peed and pooped on and as soon as you put on the new diaper is when they decided to have a HUGE bm and need to be changed again.

i'm planning on using disposables right away, since it sounds like we'll be going through about a dozen diapers a day. can't imagine keeping up with that pace! once baby is big enough for the standard size cloth diapers, i'm hoping to be able to use those at least while at home and on the weekends. if i find a daycare that allows cloth diapers, even better! i have one pack of newborns, size 1 and size 2 at home. once we go through those, i hope to pick up some more environmentally-friendly disposables to use right away, ones that are more biodegradable than the standard disposables.

I'm planning to cloth diaper at least part time. I'm guessing it will be difficult to find a daycare willing to do cloth, so that's why I'm figuring that she will go to daycare in disposable. I'm excited because I'm going to visit a new store in town that sells cloth diapers. I don't live in a huge city, so I'm impressed that there is a new store selling cloth diapers!
