Night Hawk Bed Wetting Alarm
As the Bedwetting Solutions, the Night Hawk Bed Wetting Alarm is a “conditioned response enuresis alarm”, which simply means that it teaches your child not to wet the bed. It does this by letting him or her know as soon as wetting begins.
To succeed with this sort of program, your child must WANT to succeed, but if the alarm awakens your child, even wet, you are on your way to success and you must stay with it. If the Night Hawk awakens your child, he or she can be cured!
Night Hawk Bed Wetting Alarm is a wireless bedwetting alarm. There are no wires to be routed between sensor and alarm or to be rerouted after each wetting episode. [Often bedwetting occurs up to 3 times per night.] And there are no wires to limit movement during sleep.
The Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm is compact and self-contained. It attaches to the front of ordinary briefs with a single plastic clip. So it’s easy for the user to stay with the program.
Why Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm is one of the most superior product on the market?
The Night Hawk Bedwetting Alarm is a superior Alarm system to most other ones the market because of its unique wake-up alarm system.
- Night Hawk has no wires needed to connect the moisture sensor to any monitoring device. This means there are no wires or cords to get tangled or disconnect during sleep.
- Night Hawk uses a personal yet powerful buzzer sound and vibrational alarm. The combination of both sound and intermittent vibration so that the user doesn’t get used to any particular vibrational rhythm makes the Night Hawk more effective than anything else on the market. This vibrational feature is like the vibration of your cell phone, except with multiple times the power and a randomized irregular vibration pattern.
- The Night Hawk unique buzzer feature can also be individually turned off, so when the buzzer is disabled for privacy, it won’t wake the whole house or if discretion is required for sensitive times like sleep-overs or school camps.
- Night Hawk is compact and self-contained. It attaches to the front of ordinary briefs with a single plastic clip. So it’s easy for the user to stay with the program.
- Night Hawk has a secure and simple attachment system so that the sensor stay in the desired position and therefore pick up the smallest amount of moisture and alert the brain to wake up and go to the toilet. We recommend wearing two pairs of cotton undies to bed just to keep the sensor snug and secure.
- The combination of the sound buzzer and the irregular vibrational feature and the powerful sturdy motor really sets Night Hawk above the corded, wired, single featured, pad based alarms on the market.
- Best of all – there are no pads to dispose of and rarely sheets to be wash.
There are as many supposed cures for bedwetting as there are for hiccups. And just like the hiccup cures, most don’t actually work.
Some “experts” offer bladder stretching exercises that involve making the child drink large amounts of fluid before bedtime.
Others insist that fluids should be restricted before bedtime.
Some believe you should set alarm clocks to make your child visit the bathroom.
Still others believe that organic foods, or sugar restrictions, are secrets to success.
Then there are those who just say “Be patient, he’ll outgrow it naturally.”
There’s a pricey anti-diuretic drug that makes the bed wetter body retain water. Hopefully, the urge to urinate will get delayed until morning, but clinical trials are disappointing as it teaches the bed wetter nothing.
Dozens of clinical trials reported in the medical literature, for the past 30 years, agree that the most effective type of treatment is the use of an alarm that alerts the bed wetter when he or she starts to wet.
So why should this work so well? Because it teaches the bed wetter to recognize the urge that occurred just before the alarm went off.
All medical experts agree that bedwetting alarms are the most effective cure for bedwetting. Bedwetting alarms are designed to wake your child when urine is first passed. The idea is that the child wakes, stops urinating and then goes to the toilet.
Results in research trials, with bedwetting alarms, have varied from 40% success to 97% success rate and response times vary from a few days to 2 weeks to 12 weeks for your child to be completely dry.
Drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day is important. It may be tempting to try restricting fluids in the evening, but in fact this will not help and may even delay the process of staying dry at night.
Drinks containing caffeine (e.g. tea, coffee, hot chocolate, cola) should be avoided.
Encourage your child to urinate regularly during the day. Remind your child that it’s okay to go to the toilet at night time and use a nightlight so that your child can easily find the way.
Drugs and Medications
Medicines are generally only used in children who don’t respond to a bedwetting alarm.
Drugs such as Desmopressin (brand name Minirin), reduces the volume of urine produced at night. Studies show this can work well in the short term, such as for school camps, but must be used with caution and does not usually have lasting results.
Oxybutynin (e.g. Ditropan) is a medicine that some doctors prescribe to reduce bladder contractions and increase bladder capacity in children with small, overactive bladders. This is indicative of children with a physical problem and not those who simply need to have their wake up message get through to the brain during sleep.
