Your husband is on the right track. We went straight to underwear at 19 1/2 months and DS was staying clean and dry and using the potty all the time, at home or away, within 8 days. Waiting for them to start going and sitting them on the potty is key. My child was also non-verbal, and it worked well. I have a 21-year-old son as well, and I have been a nanny since 1987. I've used this method since that time with quite a lot of toddlers and it's the most effective. I know it will be a challenge with a baby, but it's worth it.
