Exclamation Orphaned Kitten won't go potty on his own!

Hello all! I just recently took in an orphaned kitten last Sunday. He had a horrible eye infection and was beyond dehydrated. He's doing much better now, and we have a vet appt set up. He recently starte running this morning which leads me to believe he is between 4-5 months old. I'm not sure for how long he was abandoned, but he still cannot go to the restroom without stimulation. I don't mind, but all I have read says that kittens can go on their own around 2-3 weeks of age. Why can't he, and is it possible to help him learn quicker? (besides stimulation, of course, as I am already doing so regularly.)
