Letter: Real nappies

Sir: Before our son was born, nearly seven years ago, I undertook a cost-benefit analysis of traditional versus disposable nappies. I costed two dozen good-quality towelling nappies, with two buckets, sanitising powder and washing costs for two years. This total equated to the cost of disposable nappies for 16 weeks. I would urge all mothers to consider using traditional nappies for both environmental and economic reasons.
