Last week, Bedwettingstore.com had the pleasure of exhibiting at the AAFP 2015 Annual Meeting in Denver. We enjoyed speaking with hundreds of Family Physicians who stopped by our booth. Many recommend bedwetting alarms as the first line of treatment for their bedwetting patients, but had never seen an alarm up close. We demonstrated a few different alarms from Malem
and described how one alarm differs from another. One style may be superior for a particular child's needs and we carry over 20 different alarms.
Some physicians did not offer any treatment for their bedwetting patients because they were not aware of the treatment options. They were happy to learn that research demonstrates that bedwetting alarms are the most effective treatment, getting 80-90% of children to permanent dryness.
The three tidbits that were shared with everyone were:
#1 Yes, many children sleep through the loud sound initially. The parents need to respond and tell their child what to do next.
#2 Yes, the alarm does not sound until the underwear are wet. This is not "too late" but a necessary piece in helping the brain and bladder to communicate and identify precisely when the child needs to wake up. Over time, the feeling that comes with a full bladder is enough to trigger wakefulness.
#3 Bedwettingstore.com is a reputable resource for any bedwetting product. Not only do we have the widest selection, but we have the most knowledgeable staff. User questions can quickly be answered by email, chat or phone. Unlike buying from superstores, we actually know about our products.
