  • When my son was 2.5 and showed all the readiness signs, I went straight to underwear. At 18months, he was in diaper. I never used a pull-up.

  • My son just turned 2.... he is in underwear or diapers depending on the day.... Pull ups are a waste of money.

  • i dont think that pull ups are a complete waste of money- IF your child is really interested in potty training! i used them on my son while potty training , but only during the day while we were at home and i could take him to the potty every 15 min. it made him feel more like a big boy and if he did have an accident, no big deal! we still used diapers at night until he was completely trained, and as he had fewer accidents he wore underwear during the day.

  • my son wears pull ups but can sometimes be dry during the day, usually when he goes to nursery school. At home different story!

  • They are a waste of money if your kid is interested and ready. My son was day and night trained in 4 days. Those would have been a complete waste of money for me to buy.

  • I always start with pull ups because it gets the idea down of underware. Now we are mostly in panites and training pants. My daughter is 2 and we are just now training. At night we do diapers, pull ups when we go out and undies at home. We are only on day 2 of active training till this point it was more casual and kinda sit when you want.
