Bedwetting (also known as nocturnal enuresis), is a problem that affects 1 in 5 children in Australia. Bedwetting is a relatively common disorder and can often be worrisome for both parents and children. The main concern for parents is quite often the emotional and social effects it may have on their child. For children it can bring up feelings of embarrassment which can also lead to low self-esteem. Let’s not forget to mention other issues such as sleep disruption, excess laundry loads and increased costs such as pullups! However, as bad as it sounds, there are many ways to stop bedwetting in children, and one of the most effective solutions is a bedwetting alarm.
Bedwetting alarms such as The Parenting Garden Bedwetting Alarm work by using a moisture sensitive sensor clip to immediately detect urine. This activates the alarm which alerts the child to wake up and go to the toilet. Using the bedwetting alarm over time will train the brain to have automatic control over the bladder. The child will learn to wake up before needing to wee, or continue to sleep without needing to empty their bladder.
