If a child’s bedwetting is becoming frequent, families may start to wonder when to use a bedwetting alarm, and whether this could be a permanent solution. For school aged children who are still bedwetting more than 2 to 3 times a week, it is important for both parents and children to address the issue positively together to minimise anxiety and the potential impact on the child’s well being. Reward and encouragement, rather than punishment or making fun of a child, will lead to successful outcomes and this requires the whole family to be supportive.
It is important to note that Malem alarms are not intended to cure bedwetting caused by organic or physiological disorders, such as diabetes or kidney ailments. If in doubt, please consult your GP or specialist.
