Seeking experiences with bedwetting alarms for girls age 5/6

[deleted account] ( 7 moms have responded )

My daughter has been dry day and night since age 19 months. Shortly after moving to our new home she began wetting the bed. My husband and I are researching the idea of utilizing a bedwetting alarm for her. We know she is difficult to wake, and I have read all about the alarms, knowing that it's her particular type of bedwetting that benefits the most from them. I would like to get some feedback from other parents that have used these with their daughters. What brand did you use? How did they seem to hold up to a wiggly sleeper? Things like that. Thank you in advance.

Shannin they dont delete old posts. They stay archived, that way if you are looking for posts/info about a certain concern you can look back at other stuff.

They also have to work out the " similar topics" portion on the website, because it brings up really old posts and people dont look at the dates before resurrecting them.

you are the only to post in this topic ( other than myself) since 2009 ;)

Shannin, there is always a date next to the topics and posts which can give you a good idea if the topic is outdated. This one, is from march 2009 :)

She is probably anxious about the move to the new house and needs time to feel safe and secure again. I wouldn't use an alarm with one so young. If she was dry until you moved house from the early age of 19 months she obviously doesn't need to wake in the night to use the toilet. Is she at a new school? Is she fitting in well with new friends. Once she is settled she will return to being dry at night. A little patience and a large waterproof undersheet and not making too big a thing of it or making her feel bad and she will soon return to normal.

Hi Rolinda,
First of all are you still there or is this an outdated post?

Mattie,



Thanks.  We moved when she was about 29 months.  She continued to stay dry at night after the move for about 3 months.  So she was dry day and night for just over a year before she began wetting at night.  We had hoped she would stay dry again after a month or so after she started wetting, but three years later she's still wetting at night.
