  5. has anyone used a bed wetting alarm?

has anyone used a bed wetting alarm? Lock Rss

with their kiddies?

thoughts, experiences please?

i am going to purchase one today after seeing the paed, but they range in price sooo much...

TIA
I haven't for my kids but I had one when I was younger. It worked really well it was the only thing that stopped me from wetting the bed so i reccommend them. Let me know how it goes.

Oh and I think my parents hired one it was just a rubber mat with an alarm attached so easily disinfected and because you only need it for a short amount of time it was better then buying one outright. Hopefully you can still do something like that smile

Forever, for always and no matter what

thanks T&L
How old were you when you were using it?

The paed reckons that DD is a little on the young side to be worried about it yet - she's nearly 6 - but still supports giving it a go anyway
I think I was about 8 or 9 but mum and dad tried heaps of stuff before they tried it. It worked really quickly from what i can remember within a week or 2 I had stopped wetting the bed and never did again.

OMG - that would be heaven if it works that quickly with DD...

i'm getting a little tired of washing & getting up all night long.. it's worse than having a newborn.. i'm sooo sleep deprived.. we are going on for 2 years now... she can wet the bed 2 or 3 times a night sometimes... i feel bad for her too, cause she has to get up & have a shower every morning to wash the wee off before she goes to school.
Hi chiliwoman, I remember my brother had one of these when he was young. My mum also hired it for him and luckily too because after years of bedwetting every single night it only took one week of using the alarm and he was 'cured'. I cant remember how old he was but it was definitely young primary school age maybe 6 or 7 as I was quite young too- The first night the alarm went off it was SOOO loud and my brother screamed and it made me cry!! Good luck I really hope it workd for your little one x
thanks MissKel
fingers crossed for us too then!!
maybe i should look into hiring one - if we are only going to be using it a few weeks...

I think you should, it may work out a lot cheaper smile
I havent used one on my kids... yet. But I had one when I was younger. Maybe around 7-8 yrs old? It was one that clipped onto my undies. It didnt work, the alarm never went off. In saying that, Im sure they've made improvements in that time lol.

Good luck!! My dd1 is 5 1/2 & still wears nappies to bed. When did you first go to the GP/Paed about it??

I spoke with a GP at the local health centre (not our usual GP) about 6 months ago, who referred us to the specialist clinic at the hospital, which we have just been to this week. She will be 6 in Febuary.. they arent overly concerned - but i am - i'm friggin tired.. LOL I cant get DD to put a night nappy on - just not going to happen sad

I used to babysit a boy who had one. His 3 you get brothers were all toilet trained but he still wet. Think he was about 8?! It didn't work for him. (Or at least it hadn't been when I was looking after him). And he got really embarrassed by it so if the alarm went off and I went to get him up to go toilet he would tell me he was just sweating and that's why the alarm was going...


Oh no - i really hope it works for us... no-one has any to hire in this damn town at the moment, so i may end up buying one after all.. ebay has some fairly cheap

i'll keep you all posted.

thanks for your input smile

Ive been thinking about taking mine to our gp. I may aswell wait though. Doesnt seem like theres alot they can do anyway!

DD1 was refusing nappies for almost a year up until a few months ago. I was sooo sick of it lol. I dreaded nappy time. i tried all the different nappies I could find for her. I ended up putting her to bed, waiting until she was asleep, then sneaking one on her. She's a really deep sleeper though, so she had no idea until the morning lol.
Dad tried that when my brother and i were kids. Can't remember how he stopped, but dad got me to stop ny putting a dollar in a jar for every time i didn't wet the bed. Dollar a day til the jar was full, left me with a good couple o hundred to spend to celebrate!
