Suzie's take on it is certainly valid, and many parents take that route. Especially if the child is well on his or her way to being trained (as it sounds like Greyson is). For lots of kids, a pull-up just feels like a regular old diaper.

Another school of thought is to only use underwear full-time when the child has some consistency with using the potty. The underwear should be a source of confidence and sign of being a "big kid," not just another place to have one accident after another.

We did a little of both. With Fletcher, we waited until he was consistent to go out of the house in underwear, but for him, it was only a few days! With Jonah, we put him in underwear during the day as soon as we made the decision to send him to preschool this fall. Two weeks before preschool we just said okay we're going all the way! He's never had accidents out of the house, but we are still struggling at home eight months later.
