With one of our children, I tried pretty much everything to stop bedwetting. This particular child was well beyond potty training age, but couldn’t seem to have a dry night. Ever.
I tried waking them up before I went to bed. Usually they had already wet the bed by then. I stopped fluids after dinner. Still we were changing sheets. I pretty much determined that we would have to buy stock in Good Nites since the child was well beyond the maximum size for Pull-Ups. They were extremely costly per item and it was really starting to bother me that we couldn’t seem to move past the nighttime accident stage with this child.
We tried different herbs and tonics that promised dry nights. Nothing seemed to work.
At my wits end, I decided to browse on Amazon and came across the Wet Stop3 Bedwetting alarm. It was far cheaper than other alarms available and seemed to have some mixed reviews. I figured it was worth a shot at the price before I had to buy more Good Nites.
The device is simply clipped to their underwear on the outside and then the alarm part is clipped up at the top of their shirt. It’s so easy to put on that my child was able to clip it on without assistance after the first couple nights.
Our first night, it went off shortly after she had fallen asleep, but it woke her up immediately between the beeping and the vibrating. It wasn’t super loud that it would wake the whole household, but enough that it got her up. Her sister sleeps in the same room and was never disturbed by the noise.
After less than a week, she was no longer having accidents in her bed! I am one happy mama! We are about a month in, and still doing great! She still wears the device just in case she needs a sudden reminder to go to the bathroom, but we haven’t had any more accidents!
If you have an older child still bedwetting, I highly recommend checking out this device. It has saved us from lots and lots of dirty laundry!
