I'm ready to start but..

I've read the "how you started, tips" thread but I still have questions.

We have 2 BBLP that I had intended to use with DS but alas, he's 2 and still in dipes.. hopefully that will be done with this summer!

ANYWAY.. I tried to cue her to pee and she kinda screamed.. not a big scream, but she wasn't happy. Is this cuz she had no idea what I was doing or because she didn't have to pee?

And poops.. OY! She normally poops first thing after she wakes up so I put her on there a few mornings and wouldn't you know she didn't poop those days?

I'm just sort of feeling a bit lost. Am I trying to do too much? Should I start with the morning poop and a pee after a nap? What are some pee cues that I should be watching for?

Any help would be appreciated.. TIA

I started cueing my DD when I noticed she was going in her dipe for about 2 weeks before I put her over the potty. You could spend some nakey time for an hour or so a day, just watching for signals and cueing her when you see her going. Or wear her in a carrier with just a prefold/fitted, she will probably fuss a bit before she pees. And without a waterproof layer you won't miss it!
Can't type more, DD needs me.

Does she give any cues when she needs to go?

Perhaps start with the first pee of the morning (or post-nap) and nurse her while you pee/cue her. That made starting easy for us. The nurse-n-pee!
