6 months = too old?

Have I missed the window?

I was dead set on ECing from birth, but a NICU stay and a some health problems made it impossible, and now he's six months old.

I've tried holding him over the sink a few times, but nothing happened, and I have a bad back, so it's really not a good idea in the first place. Every time I put him on the little potty he screams bloody murder. I can't figure out a flat fold to go coverless, and DH asked me not to have diaper free time at all, until I can get better at predicting when DS will go.

Is it too late? Should I just accept that DS will be diapered in the traditional manner, and shelve my ec hopes until the next baby?
The time has come, my online friends, to talk of many things:
Of flats, and wool, and all in ones - of breastfeeding and slings-
And why our bed is cramped at night,
and the joy my children bring!
