I used cloth with both my girls. I had diaper service the whole 2 yrs with my first, but I only had it for about 4 mos with the second one then I did them myself.
If you can swing it a diaper service is wonderful.
I kept a pkg of disposables for an emergency or a visiting friend who's child needed changing though. And they come in handy for say a trip to an amusement park all day where it would be a pain to hang to the dirty ones till you got home.
