After considering both scenarios, we decided to try the cloth diaper route rather than disposable diapers. The big tipping point in our decision was cost. So just before New Year's, we placed our order for cloth diapers, and we received them earlier this week. We ordered the largest kit they had - enough for full-time cloth diapering. We've since washed them and got them all stored away in the change table. We still haven't ordered the crib yet, but at least the baby bottom has been taken care of!
And, our heat-seeking cat found himself a nice little nook for a nap this week =)
