How Bedwetting Alarms Work
Bedwetting alarms are a great option to treat children and deep sleepers who are wetting the bed at night after they are 4-5 years old. Bedwetting alarms are among the safest and most effective treatments and therapies to stop nighttime bedwetting.
Bedwetting alarms comprise of a moisture sensor which is attached to your child's underwear and a small alarm unit which is attached to he neckline of the pajama top.
A moisture sensor detects urine as soon as the user begins to wet the bed and triggers the alarm. The alarm is designed to awaken the child with loud sounds, strong vibrations and bright lights so your child can wake up. Once awake, the child finishes urinating in the toilet and goes back to sleep. Over a period of time, your child starts getting up sooner and sooner, eventually beating the alarm and eventually waking up before the alarm triggers to go to the bathroom and learns to stay dry.
Once your child is dry for 14 consecutive nights, you can stop using the alarm. If your child wets the bed again again, start the process over again. Relapses are normally not common.
