Letter: Real nappies

Sir: The nappy debate (Letters, 2, 6, 9, 15 May) has failed to mention a "third way": a nappy laundering service.

We have been using one since the birth of our daughter last September and have found it convenient and reliable. Obviously, it costs money to have dirty nappies taken away and a bag of clean ones left on our doorstep. The cost, however, is comparable to that of disposable nappies and I feel it is worth it to reduce the refuse sent to landfill.
