We have taken it step by step. The machine does exactly what it says it will do and my son is now dry at nights. He is so proud of himself and his confidence in that area is restored. So happy with the results. I would recommend to anyone and I do.
We are so pleased for him! Well done :)
Only regret is not getting one sooner. Our girl has started to wake up to the bathroom, which never happened before.
So please to hear your girls is getting up on her own. Well done :)
We got this alarm roughly 8 weeks ago and the challenge we have is that my son's a very a deep sleeper. I am optimistic this will work but we do have to go to him each time the alarm is ringing and make sure he still get up and go to the toilet and to help him get changed if he's wet himself. He is only just starting to go through longer periods of not wetting himself and he does wake up in the morning just before the alarm triggers to get to the toilet. I reckon it'll work soon but I have got to be patient and give it time. He just loves his sleep too much - don't blame him!
It sounds like you are putting in a great effort, making progress and will soon be successful. We wish you all the best and hope he soon makes 14 dry nights.
I am a School Nurse and always recommend this product.
I bought one for my grandson and it worked within 2 weeks.
Thanks for recommending our product and we are thrilled it worked so quickly for your Grandson.
We have been using this for around 3 weeks now and wish we’d tried one sooner. After a a little less than a week we noticed less wee in the nappy pants by the morning, although not consistently so at first. We are at around 1 week of practically no wee at night now. However, I should say that when the alarm did go off my child often did not wake from that alone, so be prepared to wake them yourself (at least at first) but it definitely seems to be having the desired effect!
Sound like you are making great progress! Well done :)
You are correct, children wil benefit by being gently woken if they don't respond themselves to the alarm. Also, using strategies such as priming and visualisation can help them learn to respond to the alarm even if they are deep sleepers.
Very sorry this happened. I can provide some help if you still need it.
The sensor is easy to put in the pants and my son is comfortable with it, but it takes a bit too long to ring, so when it does, it's too late and the boy is too wet
This sounds like it could be improved by changing the way the sensor is placed. You might find these videos helpful or get in contact with me and i'll talk you through it.
Like other reviewers, I wish I had bought this much earlier! My daughter is 8 and was only dry at night every few days. Two weeks using the alarm and she is now dry, nearly 3 months now. Cannot recommend this alarm highly enough. It’s very simple to use and my daughter didn’t mind it at all. She is a very deep sleeper too but the alarm did wake her. Great, thank you Dri Sleeper!!!
We are so please for your daughter! Congratulations she has done a great job.
This alarm was so easy, we had a few nights of waking up, then the alarm worked its wonders, and just like that: toilet trained!! So worth the investment and I wish I had used it years ago. My son was so proud too. The customer service has been impeccable too. Thanks so much.
We are very happy for your son, well done!
I have tried previous alarms that did not wake my son as he is a very heavy sleeper, and had cords so I was concerned about safety. This alarm is safe and loud enough to wake my son. We have been using it now for about a month and a half and have not yet beaten the bedwetting, but are definitely on our way. He is starting to wake before the alarm goes off, but not quite make it to the toilet yet, so definitely making progress and I would be happy to recommend this alarm to others.
It sounds like progress is being made! If you are looking for tips on helping deep sleepers then check out my blog post: https://dri-sleeper.com/deepsleep
My 9 year old had never had more than 3 nights dry in a row until using this product. We're now at the end of week three without an accident and stopped using the alarm after 14 dry nights. It took about 6 weeks to get to that point. Really pleased.
That is a great result! Congratulations to you and your 9 year old.
It is a good idea to take a break from night toilet training if it is getting too much for you or your child. Please get in touch if you need any guidance :-)
I have tried other wearable brands of bed alarms before with no success on my son. He would get lazy and turn it off while in bed unattach it and go back to sleep wetting the bed.
This alarm 🚨 worked perfectly. We kept the base at a distance so he would have to get out of bed to turn it off prompting him to wake more and then go to the toilet.
We also got the parental alarm too so that he could still stay in his environment down the other end of our house and not have to co sleep while getting used to it.
I felt we were running out of time to train and this has saved us and made our world different!!!
He’s now more confident in himself too!
This is a very effective product. However the alarm is not loud enough or prolonged enough to wake a very deep sleeper such as our son. We have to have the alarm sound in our bedroom and run to wake him which somewhat defeats the purpose of an alarm that wakes the child when the bladder is full and trains their response to a full bladder.
The volume on the Eclipse can be turned up (instructions in the manual) however it may be more effective to try these 4 important strategies that parents tell us help greatly with deep sleepers: Priming, Recall, Visualisation and Reward Programmes. I have sent you detailed instructions, I hope they help! Let us know how you get on.
I am very pleased with this alarm,I have used other alarms but this one is more effective, much more comfortable for my son to wear and more discrete. The accompanying support materials are also excellent and the over all approach to managing bed wetting which addresses the psychological as well as the physical difficulties is brilliant.
<p>Thanks for your feedback. We are thrilled you found our support materials helpful. We wish you and your son all the best for the future.</p>
My nearly 5 year old bed wets every night. Since the alarm she has reduced wetting from 2-3 times a night to once a night. She has at times only just done a very small wee but we are still not able to be pull up free. Fingers crossed for the future.
There are some strategies you can use alongside the alarm that may result in further improvements:
1. Double voiding before bedtime. Ask her to go to the toilet ½ hour before bed and to relax over it-take her time, maybe read a book . Then immediately before bed ask her to go to the toilet again. It is important that she completely empties her bladder before going to sleep;
2. The Visualisation Strategy can be used during the day to help with nocturnal bedwetting:
When the child needs to go to the toilet at home during the day ask her first to go to the bedroom, shut the curtains as if it were night time, and lie on the bed pretending to be asleep. Tell her to describe out loud what she is feeling and why this is a signal for her to get up and go to the toilet when she is asleep. Some children describe sensations, others use colours or sounds to inform themselves what their body is telling them –whatever works for her.
3. Good daily hydration is essential so your daughter’s bladder can hold more at night. A 250ml glass of water taken 6 times a day: when she wakes, at breakfast (can be the milk in the cereal), at morning tea, at lunchtime, at afternoon tea and at dinner. It is important that she drinks rather than sips as drinking a full glass helps with bladder stretching.
4. The other thing that works well with a lot of bedwetters is a Reward Programme. The road to dry nights is often not straight so using milestones along the way to keep your child engaged and feel like she is making progress before she achieves full dryness is a good strategy. Milestones can include:
•responding positively to being woken by you and the alarm
•waking to the alarm by herself for 5 consecutive nights
•helping with the clean-up for 7 nights
•one dry night a week
•several dry nights a week
•14 consecutive dry nights
Rewards can consist of a simple sticker chart or more tangible rewards. Whichever you consider appropriate. You can download the DRI Sleeper Progress chart at:
I was a bit sceptical buying this product for our daughter as we weren’t sure it would actually work!
Our daughter is 9 and was wetting her night pants (Nappy) every night. We have used the alarm for just over a couple of months and she has finally cracked it.
I would highly recommend this product, it has given our daughter so much more confidence and we are all over the moon that she no longer wets the bed.
It is so nice to hear that your daughters confidence has grown since using the alarm. It sounds like she made a great effort to resolve her bed wetting; well done! We wish her all the best for the future.
My daughter is 5 and such a deep sleeper. She had been toilet trained during the day since she was 2 but was never able to stay dry at night. We tried several things as my daughter started expressing concern that she was still in a nappy at night and comparing herself to her friends and younger cousin who were no longer needing night nappies. It was starting to affect her confidence. So in the end I decided to give the dri sleeper alarm a try. I am so glad I did. It took a couple of weeks or so of me sleeping in her room and waking her up when the alarm went off (as she would sleep through it despite it being very loud!) and getting her to go to the toilet. Then all of a sudden she started sleeping through and nappy was dry in the morning!! It has now been 2-3 weeks without nappies at night! Thank you!!
You have put in a great effort to help your deep sleeper beat bedwetting! Congratulations to you and your daughter on your shared success.
