Cloth or disposable diapers?

Hello everyone! I am a first time Mommy to be, and so I'm trying to prepare for my new little nugget. What is everyone's opinion on cloth and disposable diapers? Everything I read online has pros and cons, and I'm just not sure what to do. So I figured I'd ask the experts, real moms. :) Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated!

I would go with cloth, personally. You're pregnant with your first, and you can reuse many of the same diapers for later children.

We use disposable though for convenience.

We did both. We used disposables mostly when traveling or out around town. It was just easier for me that way.

For us, cloth is too expensive, between the initial investment and the cost of coin-op laundry. So it's disposables here.

Cloth. It's so much cheaper for us. I've spent less than $350 for the past year that we used cloth. If we had continued with the disposables we had been using, it would have been closer to $1000.

I used cloth when we were at home but used disposable when we were out running errands, etc.  Not going to walk around with a poopy diaper in my purse.
