When should my child start using a bedwetting alarm?
The best time to begin treating bedwetting is when it starts to become an issue for your child. The timing depends on what is right for your family.
Signs that your child may be ready include:
Deciding when your family and your child are both ready to work on achieving nighttime dryness is very individual.
Some things to consider are:
Parents know their own children and their own family dynamics better than anyone else. There is not an absolute “right age” for everyone so you will have to be the judge of that. Remember that you do not have to wait for your child “to grow out of it” because there are such effective steps you can take to end bedwetting within a few weeks or months.
You can compare treating bedwetting to treating acne in teenagers. When your teen is bothered by acne, you can intervene and begin some treatment. Products will not be consistently used when they are not motivated or bothered by their complexion. When your teen is concerned about acne, you certainly would not want to say, “Don’t worry, in a few years, this will be over. We don’t need to do anything”. You would provide the most effective products that are available to shorten the years that he or she would have to deal with it. Both children with bedwetting and teens with acne are thankful for parents who help them through these rough phases of growing up.
