i would say why not get him the feel and learn pull ups.. that way if he does go to the bathroom in his pants he feels it but yet it doesn;t make a mess and you dont have to do 30 loads of laundry a day...

Can you try the training pants?  The ones that are like underwear but with a lot of extra "padding".  That way he'd be in underwear and not in diapers.  I hate to sound mean, but when you agree to watch kids - potty training is part of it.  How do people expect parents to potty-train when they don't want the "mess".  It takes everyone working together - we had to fight to get my stepdaughter's biological mother to work with us instead of using diapers.  We finally had to wait until we had SD for 10 straight days and just got rid of the diapers and pull-ups.  She got panties and if she had an accident, we just cleaned it up.  I think your MIL should be working with you to potty train, not worry about the inconvenience of a few accidents.  The sooner he's trained, the sooner she has less work!
