Ds is 6yrs old. He usually wakes up wet. The paed suggested this wet alert training device that beeps when he starts to wee. I've purchased it online only to realise the alarm is quite loud and Ds sleeps in the same room as his 3.5yr old brother.
I'm just not sure if I should wait it out a few more months. image.jpg

Night toilet training help
Urologists strongly advise against waking to make them wee (which made no sense to me, I mean surely if you empty a full bladder there is less to come out later?!?) was then explained that natural hormone/chemical in our body is needed to concentrate urine output overnight, hence why morning wees are usually stronger smelling and more colour to them. By waking the bladder you are stopping the chemical from working I was told.
There is a medication that can be prescribed to force the urine to concentrate but usually after alarm methods etc have failed - normally around age of sleepovers/school camps etc. it's like daytime training, you can try all you like but sometimes the individual just isn't ready just yet. Hugs to you
How deep are your sleepers? Your younger may not hear it?

Have you tried just making him pee before bed and seeing how he goes? My DD always had a wet nappy then we just ditched it. Lots of brolly sheets. Within a week she was much better. Now we have an accident about once every two weeks.

Mine also does go toilet before bed. I also heard it's not good to wake them.
Maybe try no nappy and see how he goes then the alarm?
