Great Bed Wetting Alarm Results

Recently we heard from Carla who’s child was a deep sleeper and was not initially responding to the bed wetting alarm. Deep sleepers tend to be harder work, but hang in there, all it takes is a little patience to cure nocturnal enuresis. This may take several weeks of consistent training, but your child will get there eventually. Read below to see what Carla had to say about her experience with our Dri-Sleeper products.

“Hi Karen

Just want to let you know that after those initial days of Lucas not waking at all without us having to fully intervene - wet cloths, rocking and shaking him, sitting him up - he suddenly one night got up and was found wandering downstairs (dry!) I directed him to the bathroom and now he is up every night or one or two times is dry having slept through. I was a little worried we have started some sleep walking but he has only done that twice and I think he just knew he needed to get up but was still too asleep to figure it all out.

I am really amazed because I thought with him being such a deep sleeper he would have to learn to wake to the alarm first however that was not the case.

Anyway we are now 11 nights dry in a row (even with a couple night he was very sick and very tired) so only 3 more to go to get to our 14. He is very keen to get the alarm off now.

Anyway of course we are so pleased after a summer (Canadian one) of him waking wet one or two times almost every night. If he is dry the next 3 nights then it will have been only 3.5 weeks! I only wish we started it at the beginning of the summer before we had to deal with all the wet nights camping as well.

So we are very pleased about this all :-)  and will be definitely be letting my GP know the brand of your alarm and why I would strongly recommend it. My GP wasn't able to comment on a brand when I first started looking and the urologist he asked only suggested one of the $400 ones. Having now used this I see why it is so great in terms of its sensor. The sensor sets this alarm apart and especially since we can use it in a pull up/diaper so we were still able to do the training when we were in a hotel and not have to deal with wet sheets etc!”

It’s been fantastic

Hello, I have a dri sleeper bedwetting alarm I have been using with my seven year old son for ten weeks now. It’s been fantastic as except for the first two weeks we haven’t had a single wet bed.

Well done - that is a terrific effort!
We have seen a massive improvement

Hi Karen,

We have been following all of the advice in your email for the past five weeks and we have seen a massive improvement. After the second week he was dry for six nights in a row, the following week the alarm went off four times (only once during the night) and his underpants were only wet a small amount. The following week the alarm only went off once and again only his underpants were wet. We are currently in a stretch of six nights dry and hoping for this to continue.

Thank you so much for your assistance, any advice is greatly appreciated.
Kind regards


That’s great news. Yes keep using the alarm until he has achieved 14 consecutive dry nights then he can stop using the alarm.
this alarm has already worked after about 2 - 3 weeks usage!

Hello Karen, I can confirm that this alarm has already worked after about 2 - 3 weeks usage! Can’t rate this highly enough and our 6 year old boy has basically gone from being wet every night (without fail) to now getting up on his own accord and going to the toilet in the night and being dry (pull up free!) in the morning! Even held wee in till the morning on a couple of occasions over last week! Incredibly effective product and will obviously be giving 5 stars on Amazon shortly (which says something as very rarely leave product reviews!)

Kind Regards

Congratulations Richard! Thanks for the feedback.
Cured!!!! Thank you.

Cured!!!! Thank you. I was dubious as to whether it would really work. It took a while to persuade our 5y/o to try it as she was VERY attached to the night nappies. The first 2 weeks were very hard. Up every night. But I could see some small progress in the second week as she began to wake up. Week 3 a lot better. Week 4 we started having dry nights. We’ve only had one bed wet since she was dry and that was at 9pm and we think due to a bad dream. Now she gets up to go to the toilet or waits till morning. So happy. It was well worth the perseverance and all the extra washing. No more nappies for us! She still won’t give up the alarm yet, but that’s no issue.

Perserverance is the key. Well done Deb!
He is the happiest and proudest kid on earth. I'm still pinching myself.

My 7 year old son has NEVER been dry in his life. Every night he was SATURATED and leaked through pull ups through the bedding.

It was his decision to order his alarm from your website as he was desperate to be dry and 'normal'. We ordered the DRI Sleeper excel.

From the first night he was dry he has NEVER had an accident since. He raced around the house with joy, saying 'my brain has woken up, my brain has woken up!!!!'.

It's now 6 weeks since his first dry night. He is the happiest and proudest kid on earth. I'm still pinching myself that it worked. In reflection I wish I'd gotten the wireless version but it still did a great job.

Words can't express how this has changed our sons life and ours. We have given away all his pull ups and we are all well slept. I can't thank you enough.

Thanks for sharing your story with us. This will be very encouraging for other parents.
