Works like it should just doesn't budge my kid....he sleeps too soundly. Wakes me up though from across hallway.
Perfect for a deep-sleeping kid
We got the set with an extra receiver, and so glad we did. Our son sleeps so deeply that he didn't hear the alarm at first and needed me to wake him up. Having a receiver in my room allowed me to wake up and help him. He eventually was able to wake up with the alarm on his own so I just had to check on him when it went off. It is well-designed to withstand being played with and being slept on by a deep - sleeping, wriggly kid. It is easy for him to attach and use. He was dry at night in a matter of a few weeks using this product.

Excellent and easy alarm
I bought the Malem Wireless alarm after initially trying the Rodger Wireless alarm. This alarm far surpasses the Rodger for ease of use. The receiver sits right on my son's dresser and after getting off to a slow start he has now been dry for seven nights straight. He wakes up, turns off the alarm, uses the bathroom, and is so proud of himself. I also bought two of the bedwetting pads which I highly recommend. They made it so easy the first week when he had a few accidents in the middle of the night. Initially he completely wet his undies, but after about ten days he would wet just a bit, wake up to the alarm, use the potty, and go back to bed. I would get up and help him each time which also allowed me to offer him positive reinforcement. He now holds it until morning when he wakes. It really helped to read the book that we initially received with the Rodger bedwetting kit. I highly recommend it otherwise, I wouldn't have known about double voiding or that even after the fourteen consecutive dry nights to use it every other night for another fourteen days. This helps to ensure the brain has been trained. Malem is an excellent product and you will be happy if you use it as directed!
One happy mom
My son just turned 8 years old. He did not want to wear pull-ups anymore, so he was very motivated to try the alarm. He had never been dry a night in his life until a couple months ago. He thought the alarm was uncomfortable at first, but he got used to it. He wet 6 nights out of 7 (1-3x per night) during the first week of using the alarm. We had a prize box of things from the $ store in the bathroom and he got to pick a prize if he got up when the alarm beeped and went into the bathroom and changed his underwear and finished peeing if he needed to (with a parent with him at first). He wet 1 or 2 times per week during weeks 2 through 7. He now has been dry for 14 nights in a row (we're in the middle of week 9). We are going to start using the alarm every other night. I am super happy that he has made such awesome progress and so is he!
Everybody is happy!
Our 7 year old son was still in pull ups and peed through them most nights. We decided to try this alarm as a last effort prior to medicating to stop the bed wetting. The alarm was confortable for our son and he was able to choose the sound to wake him up which helped with his involvement. The first 3 nights, he wet the bed and didn't wake up to the alarm - we heard the alarm and had to wake him up. After night 3 everything changed!
He still wet the bed some nights after the third night but he woke up at the sound of the alarm and was able to stop peeing until he walked to the bathroom, and finished peeing in the toilet. The results were incredible! My son was such a sound sleeper prior to this alarm and he just couldn't wake up to pee in the night, This alarm fixed that problem within the first week! Yes, he wet the bed periodically over a few weeks after starting the alarm,but it wasn't every night. Within 4 weeks he was completely night trained! The results were simply amazing! We had seen a urologist for our son and when telling him about the results he was amazed and asked us about the product so he could research it himself! I highly recommend this product! If your child is bed wetting due to being a sound sleeper this alarm works and is worth every penny!
Helpful in training our daughter to stay dry at night. The con is that it has gone off a few times when she has just moved in bed or after she went to the potty in the toilet. But overall it is helpful and I would recommend it. It has motivated my daughter to get up at night when she needs to use the restroom instead of wetting her bed.
Good quality, loud alarm
This is great for waking us up to get my child out of bed to use the bathroom. It wakes our child up as well. Bedwetting happens less often now. It isn't a cure but it helps. This is the second one we've bought. The first lasted a few years. We bought a different kind as well but it wasn't as good and had wires that were annoying.

So glad I picked this style of alarm!
I love that you can use this alarm with regular underware. In the beginning (FIRST Week) you may be getting up 3 times a night, and needing that many 'special' underware for other alarm models would get very pricey.
The alarm instructions also stated that after only 1 week, for most people the alarm will not go off more than 1 time per night - happy to say this was true for us (even though the alarm went off a lot the first week). Also, I know I read somewhere that kids use the alarm on average for 10 weeks - that sounded daunting to me, but what wasn't clear to me then is that you use the alarm until they have acheived 14 consecutive days of being fully dry. My son is in week 10 right now (2 days away from 14 days!), but he's reached 7-8 days in a row multiple times. In weeks 4-9, the alarm only went off 6 times total (ave once per week). Several people commented on the battery running out quickly, and I'm guessing they did not fully read the instructions. It clearly states to ensure that the red lever on the clip is not engaged when not in use, or it will drain quickly. The instructions had A LOT of helpful advice and tips - I suggest reading them completely. I love the battery operated receiver (instead of plug in model) - very convenient to position where you want, and has been great when traveling (where plug ins may not have been easily accessible). Volume control is great - good range of soft to very loud. I'm VERY happy with this product! After 7.5 years of pull ups, we are about done!!
Very Satisfied Mom
Does the job
Our daughter said this is really helping her
Malem Alarm is the Best!
I loved the alarm. It was the only thing that worked for both of my sons. We are thrilled with the results. They have both been completely dry for over 6 months now. I highly recommend the Malem alarm system.
