I have just come across a problem we've not had before.

Since we got it DS1 has never actually wet it - it's gone off and he's managed to get out of bed and get to the toilet. However tonight for the first time he was too late, and it was soaked..........

How on earth do you get it dry enough to use straight away again? I've used the dry half of the pillow case it was in, about 1/2 a roll of toilet paper, and although it feels mostly dry there's obviously enough moisture on there still to set it off.

Result - DS1 has gone back to bed minus the alarm.

Not used one so can't help, sorry.

How old does a child have to be before they are recommended?

My son is 5 and no where near dry at night, despite being day time trained before he was two.

thanks baby - the problem is getting all of the moisture off the mat - it's so sensitive that the tiniest bit sets it off again.

Someone suggested a hairdryer (off line lol) so I may try that tonigt if he soaks it again.

Geepers - usually it's once they're 7 they can be referred.
