So $8 for 50g of bamboo is what I need to not catch the crud that my son currently has? Since it would be for medical purposes, do you think I could use our supplemental medical expense account to buy it? Could I deduct it as a medical expense? I'm seeing some grand possibilities here!

Those are the main reasons I LOVE bamboo diapers!! Now if they could just make bamboo fabric a little bit cheaper and easier to get I would be in heaven!!
