I'm having my first baby in May and I'm trying to decide if cloth diapering will be worth it for me. I also care for my disabled husband and work full time, so I'm doubting if the cost savings will be worth my time.

I have a washer/dryer, but I'm concerned that the energy use will offset any savings as well. My DH can't really help with laundry, so it's up to me to do it.

I know it's even more cost effective is you use cloth with more than one baby. Whether we have a second depends on several factors: how much my DH can help, if I can afford child care down the road, and if IVF works again.

Those who have experience, would you try cloth diapering in my situation? My thought are to start off with disposables and if I feel up to it, maybe do a trial run with cloth.
