The bedwetting alarm, also known as an enuresis alarm is the safest and most effective bedwetting solution in training bedwetters to properly respond to a full bladder while asleep.
A bedwetting alarm is a
small plastic device with two parts:
1.) Audible alarm
2.) Urine/Moisture sensors
What it does:
It trains the bedwetter to stay dry at night by helping them learn to sense the need to properly respond to a full bladder.
How it works:
Before the bedwetter goes to sleep, connect the moisture sensors to the pajamas. Then place the audible alarm somewhere close to child, usually strapped on the arm.? The child goes to sleep. Later that night, the bedwetter begins wetting their pants.? The moisture sensors immediately detect urine and sets off the bedwetting alarm.? The bedwetter is woken by the noise (some bedwetting alarms include a vibrating feature) and respond by discontinuting urine flow so they can finish emptying their bladder in the bathroom.
Over time, you should gradually notice progressively smaller wet spots, the bedwetting alarm going off later at night, and more dry nights.? After responding correctly enough times, the bedwetter will be able to stay dry on their own and will no longer have to rely on a bedwetting alarm. The child will wake up to use the bathroom on their own or hold all of the urine in until they wake up in the morning.
My child is a deep sleeper, will a
bedwetting alarm work?
Yes, a bedwetting alarm is a great for helping deep sleepers. It's also encouraging to know that not all deep sleepers wet the bed. Kids wet the bed because they are unable to wake up on their own before peeing the bed. A bedwetting alarm helps them learn to sense the need to wake up when they have a full bladder
In the unlikely event the bedwetter doesn't wake up to the bedwetting alarm, all it usually takes is a little help from the parents in the beginning. As soon as the alarm goes off, a parent should gently help the kids wake up by gently lifting them up or by placing a cold cloth on their feet. Parents should find that kids will begin waking up on their own to the bedwetting alarm after parents help them first a few times. This doesn?t interfere with the parents sleep pattern because kids usually wet the bed after 1-2 hours of going to bed, a significant amount of time before adults go to sleep.
Is a bedwetting
alarm electrically safe?
Bedwetting alarms are designed to run on a very low battery current and we are unaware of anyone ever being injured by a bedwetting alarm. In fact, adults can safely place the moisture sensors on their tongue and not be harmed.
