The one thing you should also buy is plastic underpants to put over the underwear. On the average, this cost $3 for a package of three. This way, you aren't stuck changing their clothes six times a day. At first, more time will be consumed, worrying about whether or not they've gone to the bathroom in their pants. The up side to this is that within a week or two, your child will be running to the bathroom when they feel the urge to go. This means no more sitting in the bathroom for an hour with the water running while trying to get them to go and then finding out that you yourself need to go.
This method is definitely cheaper in the long run and it helps your child potty-train a lot faster. So, why spend more money, more time, and a lot more effort when you really don't need to?
