We were totally skeptical as far as how this would work. Our 6 year old son had only had a couple of dry nights in his entire life. This alarm helped him stay dry after 3ish weeks and he has had over 18 dry nights IN A ROW. We are absolutely thrilled...worth every $$$$ spent!
Doing its job
We have been using this for just over a couple weeks. My son still can sleep through it if he is in deep sleep, so I am very glad we got the extra receiver. We had trouble getting it to work out of the box and pairing up to both receivers. Contacting Malem in the UK per the instruction manual was extremely frustrating and not at all helpful. Fortunately I was directed to contact the Bedwetting Store where I purchased it and was helped by one of the best customer service people-thanks Nicole! It has been working ever since.
I have honestly never written an online review for ANY product I've ever used. I had to write about this one. My nine year old son had been so embarrassed with his bed wetting. I tried everything except medication - getting up at night, changing diet etc. With the Malem alarm he was dry after 4 nights. We are on week three of no accidents. I can't tell you what this has done for his confidence and self esteem. We purchased the wireless alarm. He puts it on himself. My 8 year old has the same issue and he can't wait to try it next!!!

Great tool to teach my daughter!
This alarm works great for my daughter, she is 6 and has been frusterated with bedwetting for years. The only complaint I have is that she does not always hear it right away... she is a very sound sleeper, and sometimes I hear it before she does and have to wake her. But it is really helping her confidence to have some 'only slightly wet' and some 'dry' nights.

Worth the $
My son previously used an alarm that had to clip onto his shoulder, he didn't like this & so we just clipped it to his underwear; unfortunately when it went off he often couldn't hear it & neither could I! It was a very inferior product (suggested to us by an expert) & the clip often broke & the wires even dislodged. This wireless model that I purchased, along with the extra adapter, solves these problems. It was very much worth it. It has been 4 weeks & we are seeing more dry nights but there is still much progress to be had.

Works pretty good
We have been using the alarm for almost two months, my 7 year old son is still not waking up to use the bathroom on his own, but the alarm is waking him up most of the time before he completely wets the bed. The problem I am having is sometimes after it goes off in the middle of the night and we try to put it back on him, it continues to go off so we can't use it. We try to make sure it is dry before we put it back on but it still goes off, this has happened several times in the last two months.
Great, reliable, convenient alarm
We started using this Malem alarm about three weeks ago. Since then, my 9-year-old has had a few dry nights and is consistently woken by the alarm if he begins to pee during the night. We're committed to using this method since it has already shown progress.
After 4 weeks with the alarm, my six year old son has far more dry nights than damp. He is now able to wake up, turn off the alarm, empty his bladder, and change underpants on his own. In the past 10 days, he has had 8 completely dry nights. AMAZING! His pride in dry nights is contagious. I believe part of his success was his desire to stay dry.
The first 3 weeks required adult assistance in waking and getting the routine set. The variable sounds helped me (mom) stay alert to the alarm. Stock up on the weird size of batteries. Don't forget to leave the latch open during the day or the battery will be sucked dry. Helpful hint
so pleased with how well this product is works for my 8 yearold son.I never expected it to work so soon. He has been using it for 3 weeks and is on his 12th night of dryness. He is still wearing the alarm and waking up once a night to go to the bathroom. the recommendation States to use for 2 weeks of consecutive dryness and then every other night for two weeks so we are not completely through the process but the results so far has been amazing.
Happy Mom/Happy Son
Ready to try again
I have read recent reviews of 10-12 year olds and we are ready to try again. My 11and a half year old boy very normally developing boy is a heavy sleeper,has never been dry, and his father was the same way and never had an alarm to help. We tried to use this alarm 3 years ago with the remote receiver and everyone in our house woke up except our bed wetter. This was discouraging. I think age, timing, and development come into play with success.
The alarm is great and gives us hope. I remember the metal on the clip rusted and began to not work. I always gently washed this and was very careful. The alarm stopped alarming because of the rust. I hope this works better this time around. The metal should be stainless steal for the price and to prevent rusting.
