  • Well with first baby(ds) I did pull-ups and learned the hard way that they are hust a glorified more expensive diaper. He was nearly 3 and a half when he was fully trained. With dd (28 months) we were doing the whole panties thing and all was fine until she had to poop and she's scared to death to do it on the potty. She cries and refuses. So we took a break from it. I dunno, I'm hoping in a few weeks to try again. But I ask her every time I see her grunting if she wants to potty and she says, "No, go away!" This is partially why I am waiting to have another one just yet. I don't want to be pregnant and have a difficult potty trainee!!!!

  • We did panties all day, and diapers at night. Pull up s are expensive. To finally get her to go poop in the potty, we told her that the toilet got hungry and needed fed. She was great from then on.

  • Straight to undies... Pull ups were more trouble than they were worth... We did try them with the oldest, but it did nothing for training... Undies on the other hand did the trick every time...

  • Skipped Pull-Ups altogether. Waste of money and make the potty training process longer for no reason.

  • I used pull ups at first. I tried underwear but that backfired. So we went to pullups for a while day and night and then underwear during the day and pull ups at night and then eventually just to underwear.
