To the editor,

Referencing the story in the Sept. 27, 2017 edition of The Recorder titled “Capital region mayors proclaim National Diaper Need Awareness Week.”

Diaper Need Awareness Week? You have got to be kidding!

When we couldn’t afford disposable diapers, we bought cloth diapers. They are cheap ($13 for 10 at Target), last for years, only require washing to reuse, and don’t add unnecessarily to landfills.

I think the only babies in need of a diaper change are the whiny people pushing for this program.
