My daughter is 8 1/2 and a nightly wetter. I spoke to the continence nurse on the helpline a few weeks ago and she was happy for us to go ahead and try the alarm. We have the cordless one. My daughter wakes up every night and turns off the alarm when she starts to wet no problem - usually between 12 midnight and 3am. She hasn't slept through it or wet fully, so it is waking her and stopping her after she starts wetting. But, I was hoping after more than two weeks she may have had a few dry nights. Do you think it's going to work ?!

I used the alarm on all 3 of mine.  DS#1, he was dry in 2 weeks, but I believe that is rare.  My #2 and #3 both took 8-10 weeks.

She's waking up and not wetting fully.  It IS working.  Hang in there original.gif

we are currently seeing a continence clinic with DS & they allow for 12 weeks for the alarm to work.  Having said that though, he has also gone through a period of 4 months of bladder training prior to having the alarm & we get the alarm next week.  

Have you done any bladder training with her or kept any records or her fluid intake/urine output through the day?  We had to do this with DS & found his fluid intake was well short of where it should be & he had hardly any urine output through the day - it was all being produced of a night so we have had to work on this aspect first as without doing this the alarm apparently would not help at all (as in as soon as we stop using the alarm the bedwetting would start again.
