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 the 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.
Reward systems to promote good behavior may help, such as getting up when the alarm sounds and remembering to reset the alarm. It also helps to make it as easy as possible for your child to go to the toilet during the night, such as using night lights.
The alarm will usually be used for at least six weeks. The aim of the alarm is to achieve at least two weeks of uninterrupted dry nights. Once your child is dry for 14 consecutive nights, you can stop using the alarm
