Potty training

DD is now 15 months old and has been pooping on the toilet since last November.  I decided it was time to potty train her.  We started 4 days ago and she is doing quite well.  The first day we went through about 15 pairs of pants but she has gotten better each day.  So far today we are only on our second pair and it is 2:00 in the afternoon.

I was going to trying training pants but I couldn't find any that would fit her.  She weighs about 21 lbs. right now and the smallest training pants I could find start at 29 lbs.  I decided we would go straight to the underwear (which weren't too easy to find in her size either).  I figured, what is the difference between washing pants versus cloth diapers?  Also, she fits into much smaller pants without the bulky diaper so we have lots of pants.  She even fits into some 6-9 month sized pants!  I had her in 18 month size (and some 24 month) with the diapers on.

At home she sits on the normal toilet with a padded toddler seat and at my grandma's house she has a potty chair or she uses the travel potty seat on the toilet.  I've been giving her stickers each time she goes....there are stickers everywhere, lol.  I have been meaning to read some tips and tricks on potty training but I've been too busy and we seem to be doing pretty well.  Hopefully we won't have to deal with diapers at all pretty soon!
