    Default Bed wetting alarms

    DS is 6.5 years old and is constantly wet over night. Hes had some other issues during the day with wetting but thats been cleared up now. Night times are now the problem.

    We decided to do away with 'dry nights' a few months ago and he occasionally has a dry morning...if we get him up in the middle of the night to wee. If not (even if we do sometimes) hes wet in the morning.

    Im thinking of trying a bed wetting alarm. Has anyone used them and have you have success with them?

    We are coming to the end of our tether with this issue.

    You know he can't help it right? My pre teen has used the alarm and medication, but still wets the bed. The medication works, but we were advised if after three months it hadn't stopped then we just use the medication for sleep overs/camps etc. Cause it's not for long term use.
    The bed wetting alarm worked wonders for my oldest.
    So it might work, it might not. You need to be prepared for that. Bed wetting doesn't need to be an issue.

    We've just got our 7yo dry at nights with a bed wetting alarm. Apparently our incontinence nurse says it's still not abnormal to be still wet at this age.. Loads of kids are people don't seem to advertise it.

    I would go see an incontinence nurse (in my area they are attached to the local hospital & covered by Medicare - there was a charge for the hire of the alarm). They helped with working out all factors that could be contributing as well as the hire of the alarm (from memory we had to keep a diary of food and drink for a couple of weeks). From the day we took home the alarm when he was 8, we have only had wet nights now when he is unwell

    A very long time ago, but I had this issue as a child and the alarm was what solved it in the end.
