is he showing any signs in being ready for potty/toilet training? telling yoou he has been forexample?
i think ive just about cracked it with my 3rd, he is dry day and night, but cant wer pants lol he still has a fair few accidents if he has pants on, but is fine in trousers n no pants lol we r working our way up to pants!
he is still quite young so dont expect miracles, he will need patience and consistancy.
tbh with all of mine so far i have just let themrun around naked, then when they have had an accident, ive sat them on the potty (even if they egt straight back up again!) while i clean up n just say wee on potty, then if he does sit on the potty make a fuss, tell him he is a good boy etc. he will eventually get the hang of it, or if u catch him mid wee sit him onthe potty!
also, if u do catch him mid wee, if u tellhimto stop, does he? even for a sec? as this would show there is some bladder control?
if u are having real trouble in getting him to sit on either potty or toilet then u could get him a potty toy? a special toy he is only allowed to play with on the potty?
for my eldest we got a little tabletop easel so he could play with it sitting on thepotty, but he was ONLY allowed it then! that worked for him

Amy wasn't interested in the potty at all when we first bought one, it just sat in the corner of the bathroom for ages until she decided she was interested. I thought Amy was ready for a potty just after she turned two as she hated being wet and could hold her wee in until she got a nappy on and always told me when she was going to wee or poo but she just wasn't interested. Like everything else though I knew she would do it in her own time. She finally decided she didn't want nappies anymore one day a few months ago and that was it, she never had one again, day or night! I would say just let him have a try on it but without any pressure and if he's really not interested just try again in a few weeks. Good luck
