I will add:

The fidgety thing is pretty common. If she's not crying right away when you put her down, you might try a swaddle blanket. I also recall that laying hands across my daughter's body...

FYI, this forum doesn't advocate CIO at all. If you want some ideas for alternatives, I'm sure you'll get lots of great advice. If you're set on using this method, you'll have to look elsewhere.

My two tips:

1. Go with no pants when home instead of the pull-up so you can focus on the potty part, not the pants.
