Pullups ARE diapers. I found that my daughter was confused by them when we switched back and forth with them & undies. In pullups, it's easy to be lazy and not get to the potty. In undies, peeing is a big messy deal, and she NOTICED. She's 2 1/2, and knows that undies are for daytime, and "sleep diapers" are for nap and nighttime. Even though she is essentially potty trained during the day, she'll also stand there right when she wakes up from her nap and say "I'm peeing in my sleep diaper", even if the potty is RIGHT there. It's easier that way, right? It's definitely more effort for YOU without the "safety" of pullups, but I think it goes faster and with less confusion to just get some good carpet cleaner and jump in. :) Good luck!
