Before you start using the Dry Night Trainer it is important to explain to your child exactly what the objective of the bedwetting alarm is. To avoid misunderstandings, get your child to repeat what the bedwetting alarm does. Only a few drops of urine will trigger the Dry Night Trainer alarm. As soon as your child wakes up (they may need assistance from you) they should go to the toilet and finish emptying the bladder. It is important that the child learns to 'hold on' or wake up to the sensation of a full bladder without needing the alarm. Some children learn to 'hold on' throughout the night without waking and others will wake up and go to the toilet. Either way the Dry Night Trainer can take up to 2-4 months. For your child to be fully dry at night, it is important that it uses the Dry Night Trainer every night. If your child becomes ill or there are upsets or new events in the family it is probably better to wait a while before using the Dry Night Trainer.
The alarm is more effective if you give positive feedback when your child gets good results--each small step helps along the way to getting dry. You can just praise your child, or you can provide him/her with a reward. One way to do this is to give your child a number of fun stickers to put on a chart (or other reward).
Tell him/her you will be going to sleep with the Dry Night Trainer on your wrist. When the alarm sounds, pull off the popper to silence the alarm. Walk to the bathroom, and try to wee in the toilet (very good, you've earned a sticker already). Then put on clean pyjamas, we will attach the alarm again and you will go back to sleep (if necessary we will change the bedclothes. If you manage to wake up in time to go to the toilet before the alarm goes off, you will get two stickers in the morning. If the alarm is still going off after 2-3 minutes and you haven’t got out of bed to go to the toilet, then you haven’t earned a sticker. If the alarm goes off several times in the same night, your child can still earn a sticker if he/she tries to go to the bathroom to finish weeing. Even if your child does not sleep dry, you should reward him/her for turning off the alarm and going to the bathroom. As an added incentive, you can offer your child the goal that if he/she is dry 14 nights in a row, you do something fun together like a trip to the zoo, cinema, or a playground, etc.
When your child has been dry 14 nights in a row, you can stop using the Dry Night Trainer. However after a wet night you should start using it again. If your child keeps reverting to wetting after stopping the alarm, you can try giving him an extra drink at bedtime for a few nights with the alarm to build up his tolerance. It can be challenging but do not give up. Good luck with the training.

My 6 year old son was dry within 8 weeks. A little fiddly snapping the connectors together, but worth the effort.Published 4 months ago by Dragon fire
Great product but could be improved by being louder, and also the option of a clip as well as wristband would make it more versatile . Read morePublished 5 months ago by Lucy King
We hunted high and low for a solution to our 7 year old boys bed wetting. We even saw a specialist who suggested the only way now would be to put him on drugs! Read morePublished 6 months ago by Anna hellsten
