There are several ways to treat bed wetting. Medications work in some, but they are usually hormones or psychological medications. Many people do not want to try medications for their child or they have not experienced success when taking them.
Studies have shown bedwetting alarms are very successful in correcting bedwetting in most children. The alarm senses the slightest bit of moisture and is supposed to awaken a wet child. In reality, the alarm usually wakes the parents first until the child becomes used to being awakened by the parents. Although the child may have already had a full-blown wetting accident, if the alarm is used for several weeks it probably will trigger the child to start waking up prior to wetting. In other words, the child starts to learn the sensation of having a full bladder while asleep and starts to wake up in order to avoid having an accident. For bedwetting alarms to work the parent must also awaken, make sure the child is sent to the restroom, and be willing to work with the alarm system until results are obtained.
Bedwetting alarms are successful in most children (50-85% depending on the medical study) and they are usually the preferred parent choice for correcting bedwetting. Buy Bedwetting Alarms Now
When choosing a bedwetting alarm system, families need to decide what alarm fits their budget and what type of alarm to use. PottyMD only sells the best alarms at the most affordable prices. There are two different types of alarms. One has a sensor that fits in the underwear or pull-up and an alarm that attaches to the pajama top (on the shoulder near the ear). The other bed wetting alarm type has a bed pad sensor that fits under/over the sheet or in a pillow case. This pad sensor is then connected to either a bedside alarm (louder and sturdy) or an alarm that also attaches to the pajama top. Both types of alarms have their distinct advantages and disadvantages.
