Don't put pressure on your son. Many boys are a bit slow about starting potty training or stopping bottle feeds. Give him a bit of s break [at least 2 weeks] from all attepts at trying to teach him to drink from a cup or from the toilet training and then start again. Be very patient and encourage him after every success.
