IMO using something that will take away the feeling of being wet defeats the purpose. I went straight to undies with my daughter. She was potty trained in 2 weeks. Yes, it was messy the first few days, but after 3 days, there were no more accidents.
My sister, after her first kid took FOREVER to potty train, said she'd never do training pants or pull-ups again, and I thought she was nuts. But I decided to go for it when it was my kid's turn. It was so worth it, and she is only 21 months old. I could just say that my kid is a genius, which of course, what mother wouldn't say that :) But, what I really think it is is the way we went about potty training. Undies are the way to go!
