Your child is certainly not the only one!
A child's toilet-training develops during the first years of life when children start to become aware of the urge to urinate.
The child must still learn to hold their urine at night or wake up to the sensation of a full bladder.
When a child still wets their bed beyond pre-school age and there is no medical reason to justify this, the child suffers from bedwetting (enuresis).
Training using a bedwetting alarm
A bedwetting alarm teaches the child to wake up to the sensation of a full bladder.
The alarm immediately sounds an alarm tone when the child loses a few drops of urine.
The alarm will then be switched off and the child can finish urinating on the toilet.
Through this therapy, the child learns to associate the sensation of a full bladder with having to wake up.
How will this proceed?
In time the child will wake up on its own without having to depend on the alarm tone.
When the child remains dry for fourteen nights in a row, the bedwetting alarm is not needed anymore.
Even when the bedwetting alarm has not been used and the child still manages to keep dry,
the training is considered successful and the child is toilet trained.
The Dry Night Trainer bedwetting alarm
Especially user friendly, lightweight and as compact as a watch. It can be worn on either the left or right wrist and
the child's own underwear can be used during this training.
How does the Dry Night Trainer bedwetting alarm work?
The bedwetting alarm is attached to the child's wrist.
The alarm's cable is then "clicked" into the child's underwear on the spot where the urine will reach the cloth first.
When the cloth between two sensors becomes wet, they will react and cause the bedwetting alarm to sound off an alarm tone, waking up the child.
It is important that the user of the alarm (the child) is motivated to conjure up the discipline needed to work with this method. You can increase the child's motivation by going at this training in a playful manner and using the supplied covers for the alarm.
These come in the shape of flower, football and star.
The Dry Night Trainer bedwetting alarm is an advanced device that makes use of miniature electronics.
The currents being used in the sensors to measure the humidity are extremely low and therefore absolutely safe.
The Dry Night Trainer also adheres to all necessary medical standards.
The battery is a lithium coin style and can be easily replaced when required
N.B. The manufacturer recommends that the device is not suitable for children under 5 years of age due to the long cord
