Bed Wetting Alarms, Programs and Ebooks
by Ontario's DryKids Bed Wetting Coach
Before you buy a Bed Wetting Alarm....
“The bed wetting alarm is an important part of most cessation programs, but generally doesn’t work quickly without other remedies. If your child is a deep sleeper, or wets in the daytime, or can’t wake to an alarm clock at 11pm, then a buzzer alone may not work for you because it won’t wake the child. Combining it with guided imagery, elimination diet, bowel and bladder toning, motivation and education as used in a hospital or consultant program has success rates as high as 95%.” …… Sara Dimerman, author, psycholgist
Factors to consider: our DryKids program includes a bed wetting alarm supported by a program of training and motivation.
- Thousands of bed wetting alarms are sold every year, most are set aside because it didn’t wake the child at all.
- Bed wetting alarms are not a good idea nor necessary for under age 6. See our Youtube Videos for Age 3-6 suggestions.
- Wireless, multiple sounds, and vibration are unnecessary. The alarm is Pavlovian, and to some extent ‘aversion therapy’, so a loud consistent tone is most effective. Wireless is silly, because a bit of discomfort will help to change sleep patterns.
- Three sensor moisture pickup types: clip-on for boys, flat sensor best for girls , and the third type is a sensor pad that takes longer to sound and requires the child to stay in one place (Therapee). Our DryKids alarm is designed to work for both boys and girls.
4 Steps to Dry: ebook + Video Course
The DryKids ebook “4 Steps in 4 Weeks” is different from most ‘bed wetting’ books, because it leads you to determine the causes of your child’s problem, and teaches remedies to fix them. You can start with this and upgrade to our alarm package later. More about DryKids
