It depends on what you use for diapers. We had some side snapping fitteds and snapped them loose and used them as trainers with wool pants for out of the house and they worked pretty well. They have the benefit of being very absorbent and working well even for nights/naps. There are some good trainers out there as well. My youngest still wets the bed though he has been potty trained for years now and I have several trainers that work great for keeping the bed dry (better than sposies anyway). If you are looking for something like that I suggest pocket trainers with PUL outers. They are a bit more expensive but work well.
