It's trial and error. I've never really heard of any child who jumps right in without issue, they dislike the change and it's scary at times.
You will get there. Stop beating yourself up! Summer time is a great time to start 😃

I agree with R &A, maybe try every hour. Too often &he is sitting on the toilet too many times for one 'success' IYKWIM. When I trained my first DD, I kept a record written down of wees/accidents &when they happened, so I could see a pattern & how often she was going. I stayed home for a week &my only focus was toilet training. Some kids take hard work to 'get' it. Give him heaps of liquids, even juice, ice blocks and watery fruit to help him go more often & learn what he has to do. And if you have a DH,maybe see if he has some time ofd work, a log weekend etc coming up so you can have some help with it? Good luck,it is a tough thing to do,but great when its done!

I tried to tt my son too early and after seven months of accidents and stress, I put him back in nappies full time. It was such a relief for both of us!! Then, a couple of months later, he asked for jocks. I talked him out of it and was very discouraging of jocks until he insisted. I was so traumatised that I just didn't want to go back there! Once he insisted, it was easy! He just was ready and so we didn't have any issues. He's four and has now been in jocks overnight for about two weeks. Again, I resisted until he insisted and we've had only two accidents in bed in the two weeks!

Update: it's going well so far, no accidents from the last update, he has used the potty and is proud. Hopefully it continues.
No nappy on so far and he doesn't nap during the day so hopefully it's only needed at night time. I'm giving myself the beer few days solid training. And if I need to go out I'll just put the training pants on and treat it as undies, right?
