I had to use disposable due to the daycare. Since I didn't really want to use both kinds, we just went with disposable all the time.

If I could be a SAHM, I'd probably use cloth. However, I'm currently the breadwinner for our household, so I would have to go back to working full-time and baby would most likely be in childcare outside our home because my husband also works full-time. This forcing function of both of us working full-time and future baby being in public child care makes me more inclined to use disposable.

Just call me La. Most everyone else does.

I would like to use cloth but I don't think my husband will ever go for it. He has a phobia of poop! Also, I will likely be working full time so I'm not sure how convenient it'll be to be constantly washing diapers, nor I am sure that my mom (aka, our nanny) will go for that! So unfortunately, despite costing more, not being as great for my baby's skin, and the environmental waste, I think in all likelihood we'll be using disposable :-/

I did mostly cloth for my first son and loved it! It's not smelly if you use proper containers and it's a lot of fun to try all of the different kinds of diapers that are out there. I used prefolds and covers and didn't find it to hard to wash and dry the diapers. I've also started with my second sub, but this was a hard winter and it's definitely much easier to hang dry outside than inside. My sons have never had diaper rash. I highly recommend either all cloth or a combination of cloth and disposable..

We are about a month into using cloth diapers and so far really liking it! it was fairly expensive upfront, but it has been great not throwing out tons and tons of disposables each week. My daughter also seems less irritated in the cloth diapers. We still keep disposables around for traveling, but I'm glad we made the investment.

Definitely cloth for me. I've heard they are a lot cheaper in the long run and less harsh on the skin. It might be more effort to wash them and such, but I also came across some information awhile ago that said you are supposed to empty the contents of disposable diapers into the toliet before throwing them out... If its get in and get dirty either way, might as well use cloth!

I want to do a combination of both. I am lucky enough to be receiving cloth supplies as hand me downs when the time comes. However, I think for convenience sake I would use disposable ones for outings and such.

I love the idea of cloth diapers but from I hear the stench is unbearable if you store them for a cleaning service. This is at least what my MIL told me regarding her experience raising my BIL. My husband would never in a million years let me clean poopy diapers in the wash- he has a hard time with washing the dog's bath towels in our washer and dryer. Personally I wouldn't care.
