  • I found it more effective to go from diaper to undies....they can tell a difference. Whereas i you use a diaper and then a pull up it feels so similar to a diaper they have no clue they are wetting. But yeah once my son felt the pee pee run down his leg in his undies....he did not like it one bit and realized he had to start running to the potty lol. -Sincerely Cyndi "D

  • We went from diapers to panties (I have a girl) because they cannot tell the difference between pull-ups and diapers.

  • The first time I used a pull up on my daughter and told her, "Let's go potty. You have your big girl underwear on now." She looked at me and said,"I don't need to go to potty mommy, I got diaper on."She thought the pull ups were diapers and there was no need to stop playing to go potty!

  • My kids went naked on the bottom while at home and potty training and cloth training pants in public (we cloth diaper too). Once they seemed to be getting the hang of it we did undies at home with training pants in public. It is really your preference and sometimes your childs. My nephew hates having anything except underwear on since they started training which means my SIL has a lot of dirty pants and underwear to wash.
