I only know about what my bro and SIL are doing with my nephew, but they have FuzziBunz for diapers and love them -- http://www.fuzzibunz.com/

They also use some kind of all natural disposable when necessary but the Fuzzibunz do really well. They have these inserts (also cloth) that you can double up for night, and shake out so you don't have to touch it (I guess). They are also getting for Xmas a hose that attaches to the toilet some way so they can hose off the diaper before you throw them in the wash.

We had my nephew here for a week (and will have him for two weeks in Jan) and it was really easy, take the diaper off, throw it by the washing machine, then when a few pile up, pull the inserts out, toss the diapers and insert in the machine for a quick load.

They only brought 7 or 8 diapers and inserts for the week and there was never an issue of not having a clean diaper. Although a lot of laundry was done, by my poor CutieHead nephew is a puker and we didn't have bibs so he went through a lot of outfits. And we threw a spare insert over him when changing just so we wouldn't get soaked.

You can't use diaper rash cream with the FuzziBunz, but that hasn't been an issue since he was swtiched to cloth.

Also, a trick Mom picked up from somewhere is to tuck a baby wipe in your cleavage when you get ready to change and then when you wipe the baby it's not so cold.

Oh! And Get a Boppy! Those things rock, CutieHead Nephew takes plenty of naps all propped up in his, plus it does make feeding a lot easier by taking some stress off your shoulder.

Oh! Check out thrift stores and second hand stores for things like vibrating baby seats, Boppys, extra sheets, mobiles, pack in plays (those protable crib things). Most things are washable and or get steam clean (if you have a portable steamer) and it can save money. Mom found the portable crib thing for under $20, it works fine.
