I'm interested in cloth diapering, don't know if I'll go with this option, but we're trying to save money, & obviously cd'ing is the way to go.
Has anyone done it & have any advice about it? Was it worthwhile to do or too much of a hassle?

We use cloth diapers here! If you go to the Attachment Parenting board, there are a few of us CDers there to answer your questions
It's actually not hard, once you get used to it. It's not really hard before you get used to it either- you just have to get used to it . I got into it originally because my second dd has a lot of special needs (Chronic illness) and I couldn't breastfeed her which broke my heart (of course wtih everything else), so CDing seemed a way that I could do something extra special (and OMG they are so freak'in cute!) for her. Then I saw how much money we saved, so I CD'd her and her little brother until she hit a growth spurt. Now she is extremely tall and skinny, but her big girl pants (3t) don't leave room for cloth dipeys.
I'm planning on doing cloth diapering service. Change the diaper, throw in a pail, put it out on the doorstep, and get clean diapers. Sounds easy enough now. I also plan on doing disposables when I'm out and about with baby. Don't have to worry about lugging around a bunch of dirty diapers.
