Dry Nights =
Is your child scared of school camp or not wanting to go on sleepovers because they are worried they will wet the bed? Are they starting to lose confidence in themselves? Are you tired of washing sheets everyday and worried about your child?
We know the detrimental impact bedwetting (Nocturnal Enuresis) can have on a child’s confidence and the stress it can cause to parents and caregivers, so we provide the products and training programmes to help the thousands of bedwetting children in New Zealand wake up dry.
Our Stop Bedwetting programme is as little as six weeks long and offers a step by step process to help your child wake in a dry bed. We use Ramsey Coote bedwetting alarms as training aids for our programme.
How do bedwetting alarms stop bedwetting?
Through a learning process called conditioning, the alarm teaches the child’s subconscious reflex system in the brain to become aware that the bladder is full and they should wake up and go to the toilet, or hold on for the night whilst asleep. Conditioning is learning to react to a feeling without thinking.
Practitioners across New Zealand have used this bedwetting treatment for many years due to its high level of success. It is important that the child is motivated, fully understands the process and has the support of their family.
How do bedwetting
- Set up the alarm before going to bed
- When your child wets the bed the alarm will sound
- They will turn the alarm off and go to the toilet. They need to be fully awake to learn.
- They clean up the bed (some with parents help), reset the alarm and hop back into bed.
- After 21 consecutive dry nights (14 nights with the alarm and 7 without) they are considered dry sleepers.
