SOUND AND VIBRATION IN ONE ALARM! Everything you need, now in one compact bed wetting alarm. The Malem ULTIMATE combines light, sound and vibration to help even the deepest sleeper wake. A selectable combination of sound and vibration suits the needs of the child. A selection switch can be easily set to sound only, sound and vibration, or vibration only.
Compact and lightweight (less than two ounces including two AAA batteries) with all the advanced features and advantages of the world famous Malem bedwetting alarms. In addition to vibration, the different alarms provide one tone (purple, blue, pink), 8 random tones (gold) to prevent "auditory accommodation", or the newest Selectable model (magenta, royal blue, camouflage) that provides a choice of single sounds or 8 random sounds.
The alarm is connected to a small clip-on sensor which detects moisture and anchors to the outside of any close fitting underwear for boys or girls. No sewing to hassle with or metal clips or snaps to come undone during the night. No mini-pads to buy and attach each night! Sensor contacts are within the clip so skin contact or sweating will not trigger the alarm. The alarm sounds continuously until the sensor is removed, allowing you or your child sufficient time to effectively respond to the alarm.
Included with every Malem bedwetting alarm are instructions for use, charts to track progress and batteries. The MALEM ULTIMATE uses inexpensive AAA batteries that last up to 10 times longer than standard "button" batteries found in nearly all other bedwetting alarms.
This is our best combination sound/vibration bedwetting alarm. It is slightly larger than the regular Malem alarm and the vibration is similar to a pager. If you are considering purchasing a similar "potty alarm", this is the alarm for you. It has BOTH sound and vibration. Remember, most children need help during the first few days or weeks to awaken when they wet. An auditory bed wetting alarm is necessary for you to help them.
Parents often ask about a single tone versus a multiple tone alarm. No research has been conducted to determine if one tone is more effective than another for curing enuresis. This is a personal preference.
Pure behaviorists would recommend a single tone bedwetting alarm. The one tone Malem alarms (blue, purple, pink) sound the same each time they sound. (Note that each color is a little different sounding.) Click on the icon to hear the various sounds and pick what you like best! If you're working with more than one child at a time, select different tones so you will know who needs your help.
Some families have found that their child seems to tune out sounds quickly. For this situation, a random 8-tone alarm would be beneficial. The gold alarm has 8 tones and is always random (you cannot choose to select only one). The three selectable tone alarms offer you all the options - the ability to choose a single tone or to rotate through 8 tones. The selectable bedwetting alarm is available in magenta, royal blue or camouflage.

5 stars, Don't delay - THIS PRODUCT WORKS
By Momof3 from Central Jersey, NJ on 2016-02-04
I am not sure why I was so against alarms. My pediatrician – whom I like, and find her advice sage, had suggested them to me. I think I always believed my kids would just self-train (my 3rd child did soon after potty training at 2 years old). In retrospect, I wish I had purchased this alarm YEARS before. We tried every strategy, but my almost 10-year old and nearly 8-year old were still wetting the bed EVERY night. We purchased one alarm to train one at a time (even though the warranty only covers up to 6 weeks – not even the average time to train one child). We started with our 10-year old girl. She was a little afraid of the alarm (how loud will it be? What is the vibration like?") I think she was so afraid that she was dry the first two nights. Wooo-hoooo. But that ended. We had a parent sleep in the room with her. Not surprisingly, she slept through the alarm. It was shocking – it was loud and vibrated, and she slept through it – until we shook her to wake her. She vehemently denied that it was going off. But, she learned to wake at the alarm, and in about 2 months she was dry for 14 days straight. Our nearly 8-year old son took to the alarm much quicker. Early on he would stop mid-pee as the alarm went off. In maybe 5 days it went from soaking the bed to just a spot of pee on his underpants to nothing. In six weeks he did his 14 consecutive dry days and has been dry ever since. (We did this 8 months ago and NO relapses) He complained of the feeling of the wire on his skin, so would wear 2 t-shirts to bed – so the one would keep the wire from touching his skin. We trained him in the summer, so he was a bit hot, but it was not a painful training period. I look back at all the money we spent on pull-ups, the effects of being trained late had on their self-esteem, the piles of laundry (when they peed through the pull-ups or the periods we tried self-training them), and the hassle (bringing pee pads when we visited relatives or on vacation) and WISH I HAD DONE T
4 stars, Product Works Wonderfully, but Customer Service Lacking
By SJM from Michigan on 2016-01-28
This alarm worked wonderfully for our 9 year old son. He slept too deeply at night to wake up to go to the bathroom. He started having dry nights within the first week. Only took him about 5 weeks to complete treatment, and he is very happy to have solved this problem. I would highly recommend the alarm itself.
5 stars, So far so good.
By Snohomish Snacker from Golden State on 2016-01-09
We're only three weeks into the process, but our boy seems to be responding more quickly to the alarm, plus just having more completely dry nights.
1 stars, Not Great
By VNP from Toronto on 2016-01-04
I'm not sure if it's because my son is just an extremely heavy sleeper but we've been using the unit for well over a month and it has yet to wake him up.
5 stars, Really makes a difference!
By Momma from New Jersey on 2015-12-24
My son, now wakes up on his own to go to the bathroom - after one week!
5 stars, I would buy this product again
By joanne from moncton ,Ccanada on 2015-12-21
Pros: Small and compact
Very happy with the product. My 7 year son only used it for 4 days and then started to wake up at night to go to the wash room. Now I do believe he was ready, but with the alarm it must have done something to get him to wake up. He is now 16 day's dry.
5 stars, Worth every penny!
By Happy Mom from Reinholds, PA on 2015-12-17
Product was amazing!
4 stars, It works as magic!
By Irene from FL from Fort Lauderdale, FL on 2015-12-09
My daughter is 7yrs old and turning 8 next Feb. She never had a dry night ever in her life. Not only that, her pull-ups were soaked to the point of saturation in the morning. We tried everything, and nothing worked. Her doctor recommended these products, and we bought it. The first week was a total mess: the alarm would go off 3 times a night, my daughter wouldn't wake up, or if she did, she'd cry and be upset about the alarm sound, and scared of the vibration. I don't even know how we pulled it thru and kept trying. "Magically", by the second week, she would only have one episode, or none. By the third week, she was dry. She now sleeps 12 hours without waking up or wetting her bed!! She is so happy to have overcome something she felt shameful of, and we can't be happier either. The only "con" I found is the wire being too long and getting tangled. We taped it with paint tape to her night gown, but a nicer way to shorten it would be great.
5 stars, Great Bedwetting Alarm
By Melissa L from South Hadley, Ma on 2015-12-07
I used this product for Potty Training at night for my 5 year old daughter. It was at the recommendation of a child psychologist she meets with. My daughter has a developmental delay and sensor issues. I was worried about the loud noise of the alarm although I allowed by daughter to hear the alarm and touch the alarm becoming familiar with it. She was surprisingly not afraid of the alarm sound and two night's ago was her first night without the alarm from a month ago and she woke up dry! I was so pleased and happy that she is completely potty trained and I have the Malem to thank!
4 stars, Almost perfect
By Tanner's Mom from Northern Virginia on 2015-12-04
Pros: User friendly, it works!
Cons: Expensive, Doesn't work when child is sleeping on side
One thing I would change about this alarm is how difficult it is for my son to put it on, and to disconnect it once it goes off. Half asleep, he cannot remember to unlatch it from his underwear, then push the button on the top piece, then pee, then dry out the underwear sensor before putting it on his new underwear. I even have a hard time sometimes doing it quickly it in the middle of the night. Another thing I would change is the price, although it is worth it. And the last thing issue I have with it is that when my son sleeps on his side, the alarm won't go off right away because it is usually placed on the center of the underwear, so he pees down the side. It has to soak through the whole side and spread up to the middle before the alarm catches it. My son sleeps on his side often. Sometimes I try to guess which side he might sleep on, but usually it's the opposite of what I picked. So there are some nights that it is as though we didn't use it at all, which is discouraged. It has to be used every night to work properly. All that being said, I would definitely buy this again. We've had much more sleep than we have in a long time. My son is gradually going longer hours between the need to go pee. He's also going all night sometimes with no alarm going off and no peeing the bed. It might be a longer period of usage for us than others, because it is as though we are skipping some nights, but I would definitely recommend this. My son is 5. He's been potty trained since 2, but could never sleep without peeing. I stopped using pull ups about 6 months ago and we tried to wake up all through the night to take him to the bathroom. None of us were getting any sleep (Me, my husband or my son). Using this, my son finally gets rest at night, and his behavior has drastically improved. Poor guy was exhausted every day and acting out terribly. Right away I noticed the change.
5 stars, So far so good.
By Brandon from Phoenix on 2015-12-02
My daughter is such a heavy sleeper sometimes it doesn't wake her in time. But something about it has changed her mindset and she is waking up dry more often than not now.
5 stars, Effective so far
By NYC mom from NYC on 2015-12-01
I tried this on my 9-year-old son after exhausting every other option. We even tried the nasal spray prescription drug for sleepovers (but he wasn't able to give himself the correct dose). We only used it on vibrate. He is not completely free of the problem yet without the alarm, but we've used it for approximately 14 days (not always consistently) and he just went 8 days without wetting. Previously he wet through two overnight diapers a night, and soaked his bed sometimes all the way to the mattress. The alarm has gone off only three times, so I think the thought of the alarm vibrating is more of a deterrent than the alarm itself! He was a little scared of it at first so I put some stickers on it to make it more "kid friendly".
4 stars, Happy
By Kathy from Burbank on 2015-11-08
Finally purchased it for my 10 y/o daughter who was still wearing pull ups at night, best decision ever. For the first 3 wks, she had about 2 accidents/wk, 4th wk dry ALL week! Thats a first! She in now very excited about her progress and so are we. Prior to this she would have accidents 3-5x/wk which were very upsetting to her. I'll have to say she was scared of the alarm in the beginning and didn't believe it would work. She was conditioned to think that she was a deep sleeper and nothing could help her, we are so excited that we found this product. To make things easier for everyone, she slept on an inflatable mattress in her room (she didnt want to ruin her new mattress again). I rated it a 4 star because we are still in the process. Best of luck to everyone!
5 stars, This Product was a life saver!!!! Wish I bought it 3 yrs ago
By Mum3 from MA on 2015-11-06
My son had a such an issue wetting the bed. He's 7.5 yrs old. I bought this alarm praying, praying that it would work. 1 week.. it took only 1 week. He has been completely dry for the last 9 nights! I only wish I bought this 3 years ago. Would have paid for itself 6 times in overnights.
5 stars, Life changing
By coyote4444 from Herndon, VA on 2015-11-02
Pros: light, Non Habit Forming, Easy to use, Small
Changed our lives. My daughter was 9 and could not wake up to go at night. Tried liquid deprivation, waking her up early, mid, late night. Self motivation. Nothing could get her moving. Bought this product. Within 4 days she was getting up on her own. Within 7 no accidents at all, even when visiting other places. Love it!
1 stars, Doesn't work
By An AZ mom from Scottsdale, AZ on 2015-10-24
Cons: The product is bulky and doesn't go off
Very disappointed after spending so much money for this product as it does not go off when the child is wet.
5 stars, Highly recommend
By red from florida on 2015-10-17
8yr old son 11days no accidents then 1 accident. After that we are at 15days no accidents. 27days only 1 accident great news for us.
5 stars, Amazing!
By Emily from Ohio on 2015-10-17
Pros: Easy to use
My daughter is 8 and has been struggling with staying dry at night. She was starting to get self conscious about this and was unable to participate in sleepovers. We tried everything and bought the alarm at the suggestion of our pediatrician. We had great success and were having consistent dry nights within 4 weeks. She is now having dry nights on her own with no accidents!! The alarm was pretty easy to use. Our daughter took a bit to get used to wearing it at night, but eventually was used to it. Would definitely recommend to anyone struggle with nighttime accidents.
5 stars, Great Product!
By CruzInEdmonds from Edmonds, WA on 2015-10-12
Our child was very excited to be able to use this and track it. It's been great to see the progress these first 3 weeks.
2 stars, sound was very low after 3 weeks
By . from columbus, OH on 2015-09-29
Cons: Poor volume
Initially the alarm worked well, but after using it for 3-4 weeks the volume barely worked and my son would not wake up to it. I tried everything to get it to work again, but no luck. This alarm is too expensive to work poorly after only <1 month of use.
5 stars, Works great
By Heavy Sleeper from Weeting, England on 2015-09-27
Pros: Wakes out of a deep sleep
Easy to use. Works very well, he is on week 4 and has had 4 dry nights in a row.
3 stars, Started in March and still working toward dry nights
By Michelle from Minneapolis on 2015-09-24
This is an update to my previous review on 4/8/2015. NOTE: I actually purchased a second alarm for my daughter, age 4, to use. She was dry from Day 1 of using the alarm. I don't credit the alarm with keeping her dry. She just needed a little motivation. A toy walkie-talkie that looked similar would have motivated her just the same. Back to my son, who is now 6 and is still struggling with nightime bedwetting. We started this process in early March. We have continued to follow the 7 step process and to date, our longest streak of dry nights has been 5 days. On the nights when he has an accident, it is only once. He still does not wake up on his own to use the bathroom during the night. He is dependent on the alarm to wake him and then to change his pajamas / clean any mess. Many parents may have already given up on the alarm by this time. It has been more than 6 months. You have no idea of how many hours of sleep I have lost because of the alarm going off at all hours of the night. Sometimes, I can't sleep because I think I hear the alarm even when it is not beeping. Believe me, I have hit my limits of frustration. Here's why I keep going. My son wants to stay dry. And he is trying to stay dry. So, I keep hoping that this dry night will be the start of many dry nights in a row. You never know which night will be the start of something BIG! I also keep using the alarm every night, so I know when my son has had an accident. I would rather remove the wet clothing and bedding as soon as possible before it really starts to stink. I should also note that my son goes to bed at 7 pm since he has to wake up at 6:15 am. We have noticed that he does better when he is able to stay up later (there is a longer time period between dinner and bed, probably gets more urine out), but it is not an option with our work schedules. So, we keeping going. We celebrate every dry night like it is the very first time. We'll get to 100% dry nights eventually.
5 stars, The product worked
By No Name from Nashville, TN on 2015-09-20
It worked for my daughter within days. However, after about two weeks the original batteries died and I had to replace them.
5 stars, Highly recommended!!! After first 3 days /14 dry
By Deep sleeper from South Forida on 2015-09-19
We were extremely surprised how quickly my 8 year (old daughter) who's a deep sleeper actually learned to hold her bladder after her first week of training time with the device. It's been 3 weeks total and she's been dry for 2 weeks straight. During the first week, I/ mom did sleep next to her for 2 days to initiate the process. Only because we live in a split level and that would have made the initial days difficult to wake child on time to alarm response. So, I'm hoping this allowed for easy transition and recognition of my child's actual full bladder before emission. We've also, implemented a reward policy for success. Tonight, we will move into the next phase of the book where; she will commence to wear the alarm every other night. We are very pleased. We are relieved!!! Thank you!!! A slight con- The device is cumbersome- it's bulky and pulls on the child's nightwear. And the wire does get in the way, but overall this device is a lifesaver... No more dirty sheets/ smelly diapers/ early morning showers.
5 stars, Excellent product!
By mom2015 from PA on 2015-09-12
Finally, an alarm that wakes a heavy sleeper.
1 stars, Why would you sell a product if it's not waterproof
By Eric from Syracuse, NY on 2015-09-08
Cons: Not waterproof
My son used this one night, unit came off his shirt and was ruined. I was told that there is no warranty for this. Why would you sell a product like this if it isn't waterproof?
5 stars, I would recommend this product to anyone
By Patty small fry from Winnipeg Canada on 2015-09-07
This product is a smart way to help kids wake up to go to the bathroom and not have accidents or have to wear pull ups anymore. I don't have any complaints about this product it's working well and after just 2 weeks my child has done extremely well on waking up on their own to go to the bathroom. I will recommend this product to anyone I know whose child is having trouble waking themselves up in the night to go to the bathroom. I'm happy my Family Doctor recommended your product!
5 stars, Great product
By Jason from Santa Monica on 2015-09-05
Easy to use.
5 stars, This producthelped my daughter immediately
By Pam from Naples. FL on 2015-09-03
Pros: Worked Within A Week
We had amazing results with my daughter. She is 7 and has struggled for years with bedwetting. Within one week of using the alarm, she was getting through the night with no problems. We're still using the alarm, but she hasn't had an accident in three weeks.
5 stars, Why didn't I order this sooner!
By dry nights from pennsylvania on 2015-08-31
Pros: easy to use, affordable
Purchased the alarm for my nine year-old. It is easy to hook on, and the alarm is loud enough that it wakes her, but not everyone in the house.
