What do you think you'll end up doing?.. Cloth or disposable diapers?.. I've been researching cloth diapers for a little while.. and I'm thinking of going that route.. just wanted more input.

I am definitely going the cloth route. I have researched it from both sides, and find it to be the best choice for me. Here are a couple of links that I have bookmarked that show some different reasons for it.

Both for me.

At first(maybe a month tops) i am going to use disposable. I am sure i will be worn out at first with a new baby and all. I also want to come up with a good routine before i start using cloth dipers because they are alot of work. Once things are running smooth i will switch over to cloth dipers.

I would love to use cloth, but I'll probably continue working once we have a baby and I can't imagine cleaning cloth diapers when I'll want to spend my extra time with the baby.

Me too!!! I want cloth but with a new born I know I may need some disposable at first to get the hang of things. Also- disposable when out and about

Honestly, I hadn't thought about it until just now! I will probably use both though.

I'm thinking along the same lines as Jamie. We just don't want to add too much extra work for ourselves in the very beginning. Plus. I'm not sure how my in-laws would do with the cloth diapers! LOL

I will most likely be using cloth from the get go.

I personally couldn't start with disposables, and then actually transition to cloth. Disposables are so quick, so easy, and you will just have less and less time as the baby gets older and is awake more/asleep less. For me, if I start with disposables, I will probably stick with them. Maybe you ladies aren't as complacent as me though. Once someone gives me the easy and convenient way, I am not likely to budge from it

I will probably end up using both. DH and I both want to use cloth at home, but I am sure the baby will be in day care some and I don't know how they will do with cloth diapers there as well. So cloth for home or with us, disposable with someone else keeping baby. At least that is the plan for now. We will see when the time comes, we may change our mind.

Carmen, in most daycares, they do not mind if you use cloth diapers. Of course, each daycare has its own rules, but you would pack it just as you would pack sposies to take to the daycare, along with a wetbag that they put the soiled nappies in, so you can take them home & wash 'em!

We're going the disposable route I think.... my mother did the cloth with my youngest siblings, the very old fashioned way with pins and plastic over the top... I know they have more modern cloth diapers and when I asked my mother about them she said that they leaked at seams and around the velcro. However her method didn't seem to keep them leak free either. Anywhoo... just from my own experience, I think that disposables will keep my baby drier and less prone to diaper rash. That is why I will probably be using disposables.

Not real sure here!! I don't think that I would do well with cloth, but I may do a test run with them.

Both.. I'm gonna test both and see which one is the most effective way. I don't mind the laundry but the idea of putting soiled cloth in laundry makes me vomit.
