I think you have to keep putting him on the potty often until he learns to control himself.

My dd started off by doing a drible in her knickers stopping herself and then letting it go once I placed her on the toilet.
She has now learnt to hold on for longer and very rarely dribbles.

How old is ds?
Maybe he is not ready to be trained?

Oh very difficult if new baby in his life. My ds1 was doing really well until ds2 was born then it took him another year before he decided he could handle it. I didn't push it, let him decide when I asked him if he wanted to try and use the potty, in the end it took him a few days and he was dry day and night with no problems at all. Ds2 is now wanting to use potty at 2.4yrs but always has accidents with pants on because he forgets they aren't nappies, he is always dry if he doesn't wear anything, so at home he wears nothing and is dry, if we go out I use 'feel and learn' pants, but he forgets and obviously isn't at that stage yet, stress not, he will suss it out soon enough!
