I was a little sceptical as to how the alarm would work but within 2 weeks we had our 4yr old waking to go to the toilet. Yay!
Then just like that, she started sleeping through the night not needing the toilet or wetting the bed. We are still dry 2 months later and no alarm for 2 months!
I don’t know how or why this works but it does!
My daughter was most comfortable when we fitted the alarm just under a thin layer of material in the nappy crutch area.
Brilliant! All the best for the future.
Our just turned 7 year old has never had a dry night. Pull ups would be soaking every morning and he was a very deep sleeper. The first two weeks of using the alarm were hard, he never woke up to the sound and would be wet through, twice a night. I was starting to think it wouldn't work for us. It went down to one wake up, he'd still be wet through by the time he woke to the alarm and always refused to go to the toilet as he no longer needed to go! Again I was wondering if he was ever going to be able to be dry! Then during week 4 he had a dry night! Gradually after that he was having more dry nights than not. Hope!! We're now 12 weeks in and he's just had 14 consecutive dry nights!!! He really took control of the sensor and was doing it all himself after a few weeks. Super proud of him (and us! ) for persevering, wished we had done this sooner. What a fantastic product - the tips and after care service have been great. Thank you!
Well done for persevering and achieving 14 dry nights! We are super proud of you guys too!
Our family recently celebrated 14+ days!!! I am beyond thrilled and relieved that my son has finally mastered his nighttime bed wetting and it only took 5 weeks. He is so happy and has had 3 sleepovers already. Thank you DRI Sleeper!!
Let me tell you a little about our situation. My son is 9. He had never had a dry night for more than 2 or 3 days at a time. I thought he would out grow it. Every year at his wellness checkups, the doctor assured me he would. I’m sure he would have outgrown it on his own eventually but when?? I asked his doc the oldest bedwetting case she had personally seen and she said 12. Would that be my son?! He is a deep sleeper and for whatever reason his brain and his bladder were not speaking to each other at night. When he was 8, he expressed how unhappy he was that he couldn’t go on overnight camping trips with friends or have spend the nights. That’s when I decided it was time to be proactive. Because of all the great reviews, I got the DRI Sleeper Eclipse. After doing my research, I found that this was the best on the market. It’s wireless which was good because my kid moves around l a lot at night. Here are my tips:
1) Be committed. Someone has to be a partner with the child to hear the alarm and make sure he gets up and follows the protocol. They can’t do it alone. The alarm is loud (which is good) but I found that using a simple baby alarm PLACED AWAY FROM THE PEE ALARM worked for me to MAKE SURE I heard the alarm and could get up to help him. Don’t put it next to the pee alarm because the two radio waves will interfere and the alarm won’t go off. I also put the pee alarm on his desk away from the bed so that if he hears it before me he doesn’t get up and turn it off himself and go back to bed. You can also get an additional base for the parent’s room (suggestion for those who have not ordered yet) but I needed something ASAP so the baby monitor was my best option.
2) MacGyver the child's underwear so that there is a pocket the alarm can fit in snugly. I sewed the flaps of his tighty-whities making a j-shape and then had him put a pair on top of those. This worked great. I tried the double underwear without the pocket but the alarm shifted too much.
3) know there will be some nights that things don’t go right. A few nights the alarm didn’t go off because we forgot to turn on the alarm, it wasn’t place right, I didn’t hear it, my son got up and turn it off before I heard it. These were very rare hiccups. We were back on track the next night. I started to see a progresstion of success pretty quickly. Within a week he went from the alarm going off 2 times a night to one. Then the one moved from late night (1am) to early morning (4am). The early morning then phased out to completely dry. I used :) stickers on a calendar to track dry nights and mark what time the alarm went off. The handwriting is bad because I was doing this in the dark and was sleepy. The colors of the sticked do not mean anything.
To anyone reading this and deciding to try a pee alarm, for us it has been 100% worth the money because it worked. It’s a miracle!
Congratulations on achieving 14 dry nights! You have made a tremendous effort to get bedwetting sorted. Thank you for sharing your experience with us; I'm sure it will help other families. We will print out your chart and put it on the Wall of Success.
Worked really well. Our child stopped bed wetting within a week. And 2 months later, not one accident. Thanks
That is a really fast result! Well done.
After almost 2 months of use I feel we still have a bit of work to do as my 8 year old son still has the occasional accidents but there has been a massive improvement since using the alarm. Prior to use he was wet every night. My son will still sometimes just turn it off and go back to sleep and not recall doing so in the morning but we'll stick with it as I believe we will have cracked it very soon.
It is great that there is significant improvement. To complete the journey you might want to consider using the over-learning technique. Instructions for this can be found in the book A Plan for DRI Nights which is in your Online Resource Kit.
Purchased the DRI Sleeper Eclipse Wireless Bedwetting Alarm to help our 8 year old stop wetting the bed. It was hit and miss for about 2 weeks but we persevered and after probably around the 14 day mark he stopped wetting the bed completely. We thought maybe he’d relapse sometime but it’s been almost 2 months and still dry every night. Best decision ever! We have a happy, rested child and we are happy parents having full nights sleep again at last.
Enjoy those full nights of sleep! All the best for the future.
After patchy dry and wet nights, we have a dry 7 year old after a month of using the wireless alarm system. We had tried limiting liquid, reward charts, lifting. It was easy to use and we are not nearly two months dry!
Congratulations to your 7 year old on being two months dry!
We are about 6 weeks in with my 8 year old and there has been mixed results. We are still having wet beds as sometimes the alarm falls off. Other times it becomes unattached so that it also doesn’t go off. There are some improvements as when it doesn’t fall off or become unattached then it does wake him up and he is a heavy sleeper. Maybe the wireless one would be better as then there would be less of the above problems.
Is the cord being run under the night shirt? Please contact me if you want to go over the attachment method. If he is a restless sleeper he may be better off with a wireless alarm - we can arrange a discount if you want to give it a go.
Due to the cost I debated buying this product for quite sometime but I'm so glad that I finally did as within a couple of weeks of using this my eight year old son was waking up and taking himself off to the toilet at night, I am still in shock as to how easy it was!
We are pleased it was quick and easy for him. Great effort!
Since starting to use the DRI alarm about a month ago, my son has soiled his sheets only once. He is still starting to wet, but the alarm is helping him both wake when he starts to wet but more importantly, he is starting to get up on his own when he needs to go. He feels good about his progress and that he doesn't need his parents to help in the middle of the night. My son is 9, has been bedwetting very frequently until we got the DRI alarm. We are very pleased so far!
That is great progress. Well done!
We are having some success but it’s a pity the cord wasn’t a lot longer. Also, it unplugs from mat at times. Otherwise, great product.
I hope things continue to go well! Thanks for the feedback.
As a grandparent who had this problem in my youth I tried everything back then. Doctors had no idea, even tried sewing cotton reels to my pyjamas thinking it was because of rolling onto my back. My son is trying this system with his son and it is absolutely working a treat, I wished I had it when I was growing up.
We are so pleased it is helping your Grandson!
My son tends to roll off the mat. It would be good if it was larger and possibly with ‘wings’ to go under the mattress to help it stay in one spot
Thanks for the feedback - it is a helpful insight! Typically we recommend that a sheet is placed over the top to hold it in place.
My 8yr old daughter has finally had success with dry nights since using the Eclipse alarm after it was recommended by a paediatric urologist. It has been a life saver! 4 weeks dry now and counting.
The brolly sheet is fabulous product, is great value for money and a great size for the bed.
Congratulations that is wonderful news! We wish her all the best for the future.
We got this almost out of desperation, because nothing else had worked. The first week was pretty dire (lots of wake ups and changed bedding), but by the second week, my daughter was starting to wake herself up enough that the area of leakage was contained in a draw sheet, and by the third week she was having dry nights. (This is a big deal in our house. ;-) )
It helped that we also got the book explaining different kids' experiences, which my daughter read through a lot and I think it helped her feel more in control of what was happening in her body; we also made her first sticker chart reward her for compliance with the process (wearing the sensor all night, remembering the 'secret password' etc) as well as actually staying dry. The parental monitor unit turned out not to be necessary, the base unit is Loud!
I also want to say that I really appreciate Karen from DRI Sleeper getting in touch after a couple of months, and giving us some health advice on where to go from here.
I think it is great she is so engaged in the process and seeing some improvement already. Well done team!
This has not helped my son yet. He continues to sleep right through the alarm.
We have some tips that can help with that! It doesn't matter if the alarm or parent gently wakes the child. Fortunately, you have the parental alarm so you can quickly respond. The child still learns that the full-bladder feeling means to wake up. If you use the priming technique, most children soon learn to wake on their own. You can read about this in the book 'A Plan for DRI Nights', which you will find in the resources email you were sent after purchase.

Absolutely amazing device that I now recommend to anyone who may need support with their child’s night time toilet routine. We saw progress after only 1-2 weeks and now 5 weeks into our journey with this device, our 9yo is completely independent all night, every night. If you are considering purchasing this device, my advice is don’t think twice! Before purchasing this we tried everything - limiting water intake after dinner, increasing water intake, setting alarms and getting up during the night - none of these were bringing us any closer to a consistent end result and we were all becoming run down and sleep deprived. This sensor though, captured the exact moments our girl needed to use the toilet and helped her develop the connection of needing to get up and go - with her being a very deep sleeper the parent alarm was a great addition too as this allowed us to support her through the process in the early stages of our journey. Now, some nights she will get up and go before the sensor goes off, but most nights she sleeps all night. We found wrapping a small amount of toilet paper around the sensor and tucking it between two pairs of undies worked the best for us. Over the moon with our results!
That is a great result! We wish her all the best for the future.
My son is 13 and we’ve tried a lot of things. This alarm seemed promising and reviews are good. Unfortunately, most nights the alarm didn’t work. I tried all the fixes they recommended and it just didn’t work. Strangely enough, I could get it to work when putting water on it. After trying everything we gave up. Maybe it was faulty since I’ve read a lot of other success stories.
Sorry, this hasn't worked for you. If you would like to try again, we will send you a replacement unit immediately. I am available to discuss this with you and find a solution.
Was skeptical if it would work. My son had a wet bed most nights. We got this wonderful little gadget and within no time he was not wetting at all. We’ve had 3 weeks dry nights, no alarm even in place now and no wet beds
My son had turned 6 years old and we were concerned he was still yet to have one dry night (we’d kept him in pull ups other than a two week break from them to see if he was just wetting because he had pull ups on and he wet the bed every night). He was referred to an enuresis clinic who were lovely and gave us a bed wetting alarm from a very popular brand but it had the wires and clips and my little boy was hysterical wearing it so we stopped immediately as we didn’t want to make anything worse for him. When looking for an alarm that was both wireless and with no clip we found the dri night wireless alarm. It has worked so well. My son has gone from multiple wet beds/full pull ups every night to now being 16 nights dry in a row as of 11 weeks in. He has had no issues with wearing the alarm. It has been a steady gradual journey to dryness and the progress charts have been really helpful. He has loved marking off his dry nights. We also found little rewards along the way just for trying really helpful with motivation, especially after a wet night. He helped choose a big reward for his 14 nights dry which he was so delighted to get and his confidence in staying dry is now amazing. Thank you so much for creating such an easy to use and easy to wear product and for simplifying a process that lots of the specialists can overcomplicate. Would not hesitate to recommend!
Congratulations on reaching 14 nights dry - a great achievement!
No problems with the unit after 3 weeks of use, brolly sheet is of very good quality.
overall excellent product and company.
I only wish that I had gotten an alarm sooner. Previously our almost 7 year old had not experienced more than a handful of dry nights his whole life. We were told a good sign to start night time toilet training was when he started regularly waking up dry. This just never happened for him, he wet the bed up to 4 times a night- we didn't know how to manage him. Got the bed wetting alarm, first night it went off twice, second night it went off once, third night - not at all! He did continue to wet the bed occasionally for the first 2 weeks, then only once in the third week. He is now three weeks dry! We have had issues with the alarm going off due to him being hot and sweaty, but other than that the alarm has been a life saver.
Well done Mr 7! Congratulations on your success.
Try wrapping the sensor in tissue to stop sweat setting it off.
DRI Sleeper Eclipse Wireless Bedwetting Alarm
Has been smooth sailing and on our way towards the grand 2 weeks dry prize. Have 1 happy little man 😁
That is great news! Well done.
We bought this alarm for our 8 year old who was still wearing nappies to bed each night, but had finally started to show a real interest in getting out of them. We talked about what would happen and she was comfortable with the process of getting out of bed when the alarm went off to go to the toilet and then coming and getting her mum or me to change sheets etc. We tested the alarm to make sure it was working She used it in her nappy for a week and nothing. No wetting. We changed to two pairs of knickers for another week and nothing. No wetting. We tested the alarm again to make sure it was working and no problems. She used up the supplied reward stickers in consecutive nights. She's now been dry at night for over a month, and is well settled into a routine of making sure she empties her bladder straight after her story before bed.
I have absolutely no idea whether the alarm is actually effective or not, but the purchase of it prompted a good discussion with my daughter. We came up with a plan and it has 100% lead to her having the confidence to sleep without a nappy on. We should have tried this sooner.
I would heartily recommend this alarm to anyone thinking about purchasing it. Even if you never get to hear it go off, it works.
Great result! So glad the bedwetting is resolved, even if the alarm wasn't needed. We think it is really important Parents listen for signals Children are ready to exit diapers. Simply having a good conversation can often produce results, and sometimes bedwetting is resolved before the alarm is even delivered.
