Childhood bedwetting, or nocturnal enuresis, can be a frustrating challenge for both the child and parent. While simple methods, such as limiting sugary drinks a few hours before bed and emptying the bladder before lights out, may help with nighttime training, the most effective treatment for bedwetting is a bedwetting alarm.
Recommended for children ages 5 and older, bedwetting alarms are designed to teach children to recognize the sensation of a full bladder and appropriately respond to it. The alarm detects moisture and alerts the child to get up and use the bathroom. The alarm’s success rate is higher and relapse rate lower than that of any other type of therapy.
There are several features to take note of when choosing a bedwetting alarm for your child. They include:
Wearable alarms are the most popular type of bedwetting alarm. The sensor is attached to the child’s underwear, and is connected to the alarm box, which is attached to the shoulder of the child’s pajama top.
Wireless bedwetting alarm systems include a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter is attached to the child’s underwear or moisture-sensing briefs. The receiver is placed on the other side of the room or in a caregiver’s room.
In a bell and pad alarm set up, the child lies on top of a moisture-sensitive pad that is connected to an alarm. The alarm will sound once the pad detects moisture. Wireless bedwetting alarms are ideal for those who are uncomfortable with wearing an alarm or who tend to stay in one place while sleeping.
Depending on the type of wearable alarm, the alarm is either attached to the child’s own underwear or specialized underwear with a built-in sensor. Wireless alarms and pad-type alarms are ideal for children who are skin-sensitive and don’t want to wear an alarm.
Most bedwetting alarms offer sound, vibration, and a combination of both. Many parents find that their children respond better to both sound and vibration. The Malem Ultimate Selectable alarms allow users to choose one of 8 sounds or have the alarm randomly choose a sound. Choosing the random tones option prevents the children from tuning out a specific sound.
A loud sound is necessary to wake up the parent and child. Wireless alarms have volume control, while most wearable alarms sound at the same decibel level each time moisture is sensed.
A two-step turn-off feature prevents children from accidentally pulling the alarm off without being alerted. Wireless alarms require heavy sleepers to get out of bed to turn off the alarm.
Bedwetting alarms come in various designs and colors to appeal to children. The Rodger Clippo can be customized with fun skin covers, such as Soccer and Stars.
