How my 8-year-old learned to stop bedwetting
I believe use of an alarm once a child begins to feel embarrassed and frustrated with bedwetting is a families best choice. I used the book, 7 Steps to Nightime Dryness to educate myself. Also get the children’s book, Prince Bravery and Grace - Attack of the Wet Knights for your child. http://www.braveryandgrace.com This book really helps a child want to try an alarm.
Then research http://www.amazon.com/s/ ..., we used malem. I suggest narrowing the choice to 2 alarms and letting your child make the final choice. Explain to your child that once you invest in an alarm, he/she must agree to use it each night. I even suggest writing a little contract which you both sign. Remember YOU must wake your child when the alarm goes off for at least a week or two - until your childs brain is conditioned to wake up to the bodys signal. It takes patience but it is definitely worth the time and effort. My child went from wet every night for 8 years to completely dry every night within two months of consistently using an alarm. Get the books first -they are the key to easiest success. http://www.braveryandgrace.com Then get an alarm and be calm and consistent.
