Ellen Betts Clemmer: Hamper, not Pamper

Hamper, not Pamper

I was astounded when I read the July 30 article about the cost of disposable diapers, but I have good news for these moms. Modern science has developed a cost-effective alternative which, once purchased, outlasts the baby’s need for it. This invention is reusable, washable and even recyclable. It’s called a cloth diaper!
