After trying everything we could think of we finally decided an alarm was the next step. We had one accident the first week and have now been dry of coming up 8 weeks. I would highly recommend the DRI Sleeper
Congratulations! That is a great result. All the best for the future.
We have a very deep sleeping 5 year old. Wet every single night, but refuses to wear pullups. After we talked to her about this product, we decided to try. After the first week, it seemed like a mistake because the alarm would go off so loudly and wake everyone in the house except for her! We were all so exhausted during the beginning. After a week, she started to wake up/be coherent when the alarm would go off in the middle of the night, and then wake up dry in the morning. It definitely boosted her confidence. On the 11th night she made it all the way through, but we didn't start seeing big improvement until the 3rd full week of using the alarm (she'd be turning off the alarm before I got to her room vs sleeping through it). She almost made it 14 days of being dry, but we had to start over again after a few wet nights. Then after successfully completing 14 consecutive dry nights, we stopped using the alarms. Total time spent from start to finish was 9 full weeks. She's had a few wet nights since we finished, but very rarely. Extremely refreshing since she was wet every single night for so long! She's very proud of herself, and we're happy to have way less laundry to do!
That is a great effort! Well done for perservering and getting bedwetting sorted :)
The alarm arrived the day before we left for a camping trip and it definitely saved us from having to wash a sleeping bag every night. The alarm went off with no issues and we were able to wake up our son and take him to the toilet. Sometimes needing a fresh nappy but others the alarm had gone off with the first drops so essentially still dry. Previously when waking our son to go to the toilet during the night he would refuse but the alarm seemed to trigger a better response where he was happy enough to do it. He is now going through a dry phase which he does periodically so we will keep the alarm handy for if he goes backwards. Definitely recommend trying this as it worked perfectly for us.
We are so please that worked for him. All the best for the future. If he does go back to wetting, you could use the alarm and the overlearning strategy to resolve it.
Son is being woken up as he starts to pee.
