After trying for many years we decided to buy an alarm for Mr 9. He was wet basically every night and would often leak through his pull up. It was sad to see him miss out on childhood experiences like sleep overs.
We started putting the alarm into his pullup and had success within a few days! After a couple of weeks of dry nights we decided to switch to undies at night and we havent had one wet night since!!
I'm not sure why this worked so well, but I'm happy to say we are close to having no alarm at all, 50 days after receiving the alarm!
The alarm was a little awkward to fit into the pull up and didnt always work due to the pull ups absorbancy. We found it easier to use a pair of undies under the pull up rather than cutting a slot in it. But the ability to use the pull up really helped save the bedding from wetting at the start which made it less stressful for me.
Congratulations - we hope he will enjoy going on sleep overs now! Well done :)
My daughter has stopped wetting the bed after two weeks of using this product. She had been putting alarm on herself. The first few nights I helped her wake when she didn't on her own, following this she woke on her own prior to the alarm going off! First time ever. Shd then went through a dry week having the alarm on every night. Now she doesn't even use the alarm! Awesome, she is nearly ten, I no longer have to wash sheets all the time and she can look forward to school camp without worrying about taking pullups! Great product
Congratulations! We are so pleased for your daughter :) I hope she has a great time at school camp.
The alarm didn't work for my daughter unfortunately. She didn't wake up, slept through the alarm.
We can help! It is ok if children initially sleep through the alarm as long as it wakes you up so you can help them. I can provide you with a detailed solution on how to assist your deep sleeper! DRI Sleeper customers are welcome to contact me for personal guidance.
The 1st few weeks of using the alarm were tough and it felt like we weren’t making progress (our child slept through the alarm going off and it was nearly impossible to wake them, dealing with a very grouchy kid!). But slowly we started to have some dry nights. It was great to see their confidence and sense of accomplishment as they had strings of dry nights! We found the tips and advice provided great for troubleshooting the issues we were having. We are now nearly at 14 dry nights in a row, definitely worth the perseverance and dealing with the sleep deprivation and grumpiness to get to this point!
Well done for sticking with it and getting a good result!
The alarm has improved the bed wetting, but has not eliminated the problem. It falls out too often (either comes out of the pull-up or unplugs from the alarm) and my son is a deep sleeper so the alarm doesn’t always wake him. He pees less though, but still not dry!! We’re still trying...
If you are using a pull-up you can cut a small slit and insert the Excel sensor. Wrap it in a small piece of tissue to help it stay in place. See this video https://youtu.be/6q3N4GvDokg
It sounds like progress is being made :)
This works great. My son just turned seven and is a heavy sleeper. I had begun to suspect he wasn't listening to his body because we'd missed the window on night potty training and he'd trained himself to just go in his pull up. Within a few days of using the alarm he was getting up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night or holding it all night with no problems. Within a few weeks, we are definitely dry with no accidents. I highly recommend this and wish I'd done it sooner!
That is a great result - he has done really well!
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 :)
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.
Alarm did not sound until child and bed were complete wet
Very sorry this happened. I can provide some help if you still need it.
