21 Month Old Screams on Potty


We are potty training my 21-month old, and although in the past he's sat on his potty with no problem sporadically (when we are in the bathroom, or before bath), now that we are potty training he screams if we mention it or try to put him on it. We've only been at this a day, but he starts crying when he pees in his underwear and gets very upset and agitated, but if we try to put him on the potty he screams. It's like he is uncomfortable peeing in his underwear but refuses to do the alternative (sit on the potty). When we got him on the potty and he did start peeing he immediately started crying and screaming and stood up. Help! How do we help him not get upset, or to stay on the potty?
