The Negative Side of 'Diaper Wars'

September 15, 1988

I read your article "Diaper Wars" (by Lynn Simross, Sept. 7) with great interest, but was concerned to see that one of the most controversial issues in the use of most ultra-dry disposable diapers wasn't even alluded to.

As a parent, I am concerned about exposing my children to unnecessary chemicals of any kind. Since I learned that most new diapers contain chemicals that turn moisture into an acid gel, I found a chemical-free diaper called TenderCare. I saw no mention of that or any other alternative diapers in your article.
