Make sure you as a parent like and feel comfortable using the diapers you have chosen. You'll be changing them often. For us I use cloth but my husband uses disposables since he can't figure them out.
Shake out the extra poop. It help with the clean up
Get a diaper pail that works for you. There are many systems. We use a very simple pail with a lid that can lock on.
Every so often do an extra rinse with vinegar it will help to cut bacteria. Baking soda added to the wash is also helpful.
Use soap designed for diapers. We started with Claudia's Choice for all our laundry. Now we make our own and it has been fine so far.
Air dry diapers. Sun dry if possible.
Give baby's bum lots of air time too.
Make cloth wipes. Since you are washing the diapers anyways it makes sense. You can simple cut up an old shirt or receiving blanket or use designated wash cloths. We diaper in the washroom so the sink is close by, but you could keep a spray bottle handy to wet the wipes.
