Looking after babies can be a full time affair. I know, I’m the father of seven children, mostly grown up now. And it was inevitable that, once disposable nappies came on the market, they’d catch on.My wife never used them, relying on the terry nappies. And it seems they are now beginning to catch on once more. Increasingly, mothers are changing, as they realize they are better for the environment.It will be interesting to watch the reaction of Big Biz. Soon they will be announcing that the carbon footprint of washing them is just as destructive for the planet. And once that fails, you can guarantee there’ll be a new revolution of disposable terry nappies.Then they’ll congratulate themselves on being green. But really it’s brown.
