We used it with our third and enjoyed it very much, were delighted to start and finish sooner than we had with traditional delayed toilet learning.

Most parents do it part time--one or a few potty visits in the morning and/or evening for a while, then increase when you can.

It has NOTHING to do with "feeling superior" and it won't work if you obsess or focus on your baby's bum, lol. In fact, these are some of the no-nos that you can read here http://www.pottywhisperer.com

It boils down to a lifestyle choice. If it resonates, it's worth giving it a try to see how it goes. Obviously, it's not for everyone--no means of toilet learning is.

I wanted to add that we used traditional toilet learning with our first two and infant potty training (ec) with our third, so I'm able to compare the two. We much preferred infant pottying. We were thrilled to start and finish much sooner with our third.

We used it 30 years ago when disposables were just appearing on the market. We decided against using them, mainly for enviromental reasons, but for families who prefer disposables, infant potty training can still be done. Many families use diapers (cloth or disposables) in between potty visits. We did. It's simply a matter of preference.
