i used them with my oldest when we potty trained, and i thought they were awesome. but now im in the beginning stages of teaching my 2 year old, and i dont find them so awesome. i think it's better (for her anyway) that she just wears panties, because she can actually feel when she's wet or dirty and come to me. my oldest was a little different (and i hate to admit, a bit "smarter" than my middle child, and knew when to go potty, my middle always tells me after the fact) so i think its a better learning process this way because in a pull-up, it feels like a diaper and she won't know. in panties, if she does anything she'll come and say "i potty" after the fact, but it's a step in the right direction. so how do you feel about pullups?

I think they're a waste of money. Of course, I think all disposable clothing is a waste of money--whether it's jackets, diapers or pullups.
In my opinion, the purpose of diapers is to minimize the laundry --and the need to clean upholstery and mattresses. 'Accidents' don't do that... so children (and adults) who are not capable of routinely and reliably use the toilet get to wear diapers until (and unless) they do. Of course, in my life there is no 'shame' in being physically immature, or even incapable of using a toilet. Just as there is no 'shame' involved in being 2 or paralyzed.
I was pretty sure we were talking baout toddler potty training not physical or mentally disadvantaged people.
