In the long run, cloth diapers end up being less expensive than disposables (especially if you have more than one kid), but in the short term, they're a hefty investment for cash-strapped new parents.

Help out by giving a few of the colorful and fun reusable covers from gDiapers, including this cheery new red-and-green version, and add a set of disposable inserts to make diaper changes even easier (you can flush them, trash them, or compost them).

Or, make the adjustment to cloth diapers even easier with a subscription to a diaper service in their area; the Real Diaper Industry Association has a list of services in each state to help you get started. (gDiapers Joy, $22; Diaper Subscription Service, prices vary)
