If you are like most parents, a good night sleep is a much appreciated moment of the day. Like Prince William said to Prince Harry after becoming a new father – welcome to the sleep deprivation society! After surviving the early baby and toddler years of broken nights, as new parents we look ahead to the moment our child outgrows diapers and sleeps through the night. But then (12% of the time) a new night time ritual pops up. Bedwetting! Meaning instead of changing night time diapers you are changing wet bed sheets. Yikes! But this time there is a solution: Bedwetting alarms! Read about the advantages below.

Here are 5 reasons why you should give them a try:

  1. Resolve rather than manage

 Bedwetting alarms solve the problem! These alarms help kids wake up and swiftly make it to the toilet. This way they can stop wearing diapers, pull ups or other solutions that simply ‘manage’ the problem. The way it works is, a small moisture sensor is attached to the pyjama or undergarment. When this detects moisture, it sets of an alarm of that wakes the child up to go to the toilet. They finish the business and back to bed. Voila! It can be that simple. 

  1. Train the brain

 They train the brain. After waking up several times, a pattern begins to emerge in the brain. This pattern teaches children to recognize the bladder signals and make it to the toilet on time, training the brain to ‘beat the buzzer’. Clever huh!

  1. Comfortable to wear

They are comfortable to wear. Bedwetting alarms tend to be small and simple to attach to clothing. Much more comfortable and discreet than those large and thick incontinence materials. Yuck. 

  1. Environmentally friendly

They are environmentally friendly. Did you know that disposable diapers take over 500 years to decompose? They are an environmental disaster and estimated to be the 3rdlargest consumer item in landfills. Those are a lot of diapers! By using a bedwetting alarm and training the bladder, you are sending less disposable incontinence solutions to the landfill. Sustainability starts at home.

5. Better night sleep

And in the end, when it is all done and dusted you will gain a good nights sleep. Enjoying dry nights, and better days.
