Bedwetting alarms are the most successful of all conventional and commonly used bedwetting treatments. The success rates are, however, dependent on several factors.


 


Tips for using a Bedwetting Alarm



  1. Get your child to be excited or willing to use it


  2. Make it an every night routine


  3. Do not skip nights or just use it in special cases


  4. Make sure you (parent) can hear the alarm


  5. Try to make the alarm as comfortable as possible


  6. Do not let the amount or frequency of wetting discourage
    you from using it


  7. Make sure the tone and volume are accurately set


  8. Make sure the sensor is secure to the underwear or pull-
    up. It needs to be in the “line of fire”.


  9. If using an alarm with wires, position the wires inside a
    shirt


  10. Change batteries often


  11. Help your child set and position the alarm


  12. Avoid using diapers or pull-ups—your child should feel
    the wetness
