Children can rarely sense their bladder fullnes until 3-4 years old!

Good work on gettin him potty comfortable, I would do as WiseOldMom said and extent the time! :-)

There's no real answer. No 2 children are alike. Why not increase the frequency to an hour or 2. Having to stop & try to potty every 20 minutes seems more like a punishment for Mommy, than training for the son. I remember worrying that our son would never be potty trained. A very wise physician once told me not to worry about it unless he was starting kindergarten :) Once I stopped worrying, our son soon became potty trained.
