I'm wanting to start some EC with my 6 month old daughter. I work full time, (mostly from home), so looking for a slow/part time introduction. I bought a small potty, but every time I sit her on it (clothed and diaper free), she SCREAMS and cries. Help!

Hi!  I just started out also with my 5 month old.  I started with a bowl, then bought a small bjorn smart potty.  My baby also cried some whenever I put him on it.  After continuing to offer it, trying slightly different positions, and offering a toy for distraction, my baby has started to calm down and use the potty.  Good luck!
