That's about when we started with my ds1. We started with a prefold and cover kit that included 3 FuzziBunz, and to be honest, the prefolds were too overwhelming. If it weren't for those 3 FuzziBunz, we would have quit cloth altogether. I think the key to starting cloth and liking it is to get easy diapers like pockets or all-in-ones. We bought 15 more FuzziBunz and loved them - they were easy to put on, cute, kept ds's bum smooth and rash-free, and did a great job at containing the poop and pee. At this age, your baby would be in a small FuzziBunz. A dozen diapers would last you probably a day and a half and all you would need otherwise would be a few hemp doublers like Joey-Bunz to add into the FuzziBunz for overnight, a wet bag and pail liner and some cloth wipes.
I would not do the diaper service and here's why: it will be prefolds, which many find intimidating, and washing the diapers yourself is really no big deal. Diaper laundry is my favorite laundry b/c you don't have to fold it and it is so cute and fluffy. This is my laundry routine:
Spray off poop (once the baby starts eating solids) with the Diaper Sprayer. Put diaper in the pail (13 gallon kitchen trash can with pail liner.)
On wash day, dump diapers and pail liner into washer. Cold prewash with 1/2 cup white vinegar (to get out the majority of the poop and pee and prevent staining.)
Hot wash with small amount diaper-safe detergent (you can call the manufacturer but we like Allens or Mountain Green, which I order online.)
Dry on medium.
I hope that helps. Cloth diapers are better than sposies in every single way, foremost of which is that cloth diapers actually contain the poop and pee inside the diaper - no up the back explosive poops! Also, don't be intimidated by the initial expense - you will save so much money in the long run, and as long as you buy good name-brand diapers, you will be able to resell them for 50-60% of their purchase price when the baby grows out of them (or you can save them for the next baby.)
