I don't see any harm in putting them on the potty, not sure how it would make them hate it but to each their own! I figured it might be easier if it's more routine just like everything else but I guess I'll find out when I try.
Definitely no harm in trying even before showing major signs of readiness, but some children are so stubborn that they will refuse to go to the bathroom at the mere mention of the potty. My niece used to hold her poop for over a week because she didn't want to sit on the potty when my sister made her. Of course that ended in constipation and pain for her so she then associated the potty with pain. It took my sister over a year to potty train her for daytime. It turned into screaming matches for them.
