My Mama and my Mom-in-law are strong advocates for using cloth diapers as they are more comfortable for the baby and also economical.
It may not be comfortable to the caregiver/s (ahem!) as to the need to wash a lot of cloth diapers a day.
They both stress, however, that using cloth diapers would lessen our baby's chance of getting a UTI again and diaper rash.
We first started on using disposable diapers since our baby came home with a heplock or IV port for his antibiotic injection which we don't want to risk soiling.
After the week-long antibiotic therapy, we are shifting from disposable to cloth diapers from time to time.
Yesterday, I saw diaper rash on baby's buttocks which was probably due to more hours on disposable diapers. So now, from prevention, our focus had been on lessening the diaper rash.
