Help!! Plastic pants or training underwear, which come first??

My DD is 17 mo old and has gone on the potty 3 times. SHe gets so excited when we ask her if she wants to go pee pee in the potty, she runs into the bathroom and sits down before I even get the diaper off.. She does not always go but I feel she has enough interest to start looking for potty undies at consignment stores and on good sales.
But I don't know anything about them. I found some Gerbe traiing undies at Target lastnight and I bought them but then I wondered about plastic training pants. I know she is not ready to wear them yet but I only want to buy them when they are on sale so I need to start looking.
Do I only put her in them when she knows how to tell me she has to go?
When are we ready for training uindies and when would I use the plastic training pants?
THanks so much!


Store Closing June 1st....Everything at wholesale!

older dd was in training pants at 4 months, PL'd by 12 months. younger dd was in side snapping trainers at 9 months and is still in them at 16 months. we put our girls in them when they could tell us they needed to go. trainers were easier and quicker to remove than diapers. we never used plastic pants and they kind of me out. the trainers also come in handy bc LO can tell when they are wet and you can change them as soon as they are wet...

Ditto PP. We have used the Gerber training pants since we started (right around a year old). I like that you can tell right away that he's had an accident and do something about it! Not a fan of plastic pants at all!!
