I'm about to be a new mom, and I'm thinking about using cloth diapers and hiring a diaper service. I've done a bit of research, and I've found that the cost of using disposables is pretty equal to using a diaper service. I'm worried about the practicality though. Not having much experience in the area, I’m worried about adding to the craziness of having a newborn born. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with cloth diapers and if they found it entirely inconvenient or if it was manageable. Also, has anyone laundered the diapers themselves – because I’ve heard that that can save a lot of money too.
