potty training tears

I have only just started potty training my DS who will be 2.6 yrs next week. Thing is I have read up on the signs he might be ready but nothing seems to say - "okay time out - he/ she clearly isnt ready" and I need some advice. Up till now he can tell me when he is pooing though not before hand and not consistently and he has no idea re weeing. I tried him in pants he has no idea until he has done it. Gets very upset and says 'I spill it mummy'. I try to watch him closely but he is weeing 3 or 4 times an hour - (just little bits obviously) and always tells me after the event. I keep putting him on the potty as soon as I can but often too late. Am I putting too much pressure on us both or do i just keep going?

He doesn't sound ready if he doesn't get any warning that he needs to wee. Give it a rest for a few weeks then try again?

He obviously wants to potty train, so I'd take him every half hour for a morning, and if it's successful, every hour. You can give him a target, e.g. handful of cereal in the toilet bowl (let him stand on a step stool or big book if necessary) and make a game of it. Do that enough and he'll learn how to control the flow. If you do well in the morning you can extend the time interval.
