I read the article in the May 5 Beaufort Gazette: "The diaper problem."
It talked about how depressing it is for many Americans when they cannot afford diapers for their children, and how much the diapers cost.
Sadly, I am one of those Americans who cannot afford disposable diapers for my child so I found an alternative -- cloth diapers. These are not the cloth diapers of your grandmother's generation. They have improved.
The article did not even touch base on that solution.
Never miss a local story.
There are programs to help people in need get information about cloth diapers, and cloth diapers are available to those who cannot afford them, through www.clothforeverybum.org.
I believe that would take the power back to the mothers, and lessen the need for a public response to supply disposable diapers to families in need.
