My 3 yr old has been peeing about every 20 minutes & this is not normal for him. I was just curious if anyone knows what could be causing this? I feel bad that he has to stop what hes doing & run to the bathroom every 20 minutes.

Grab a $20 blood sugar device! and check his!!!! it could save his life, my 14 month old peed a lot and got VERY sick, like 10 days intebated in ICU because she had diabetes and we didnt know. That was the only clue in retrospect!

Bladder, or urinary tract infection. Has he been complaining about pain? His bladder may be spasming too. I would definitely take him to the doctor.
