Cloth. Its what I'm used to. The thought of putting plastic, perfumed and filled with chemical disposables on my kids 24/7 for years seems wrong. Fills up landfills too.
I wouldn't use disposable diapers regularly any more than i use paper plates regularly.

I did disposables with my oldest because I honestly didn't know about cloth.

Now that I know about cloth... I use that on my 8 month old!! Have since day one... Love them!!!

I only use disposables when we travel to camp. There's no washer or dryer & I am not hand washing diapers every day for 10 days!! Lol!!

I use them when traveling because you never know if and when they can be washed!

with my first i used disposables

i prefer cloth.  it's a money saver and easier on baby's bottom.

Washing them(the specific laundry detergent, which now is the "wrong kind", needing to wash everyday or they stunk), clothes never fit right, they always leaked, always worrying about going out in public, and how you're going to carry around used diapers, making sure you have enough when you're out, washing the poop off, really, way too much work for diapers, IMO.

Cloth primarily, disposables occasionally.
