One of the most common problems of childhood is the act of wetting the bed, known in the medical field as enuresis. It can seem like a difficult problem to solve since it’s usually involuntary. It’s also a difficult situation for the child being that it’s not uncommon for peers to tease about bedwetting problems.
There are certainly a number of products on the market that can help with enuresis, but not all of them are completely effective or comfortable for the child.
It’s also important to note that price isn’t everything, but it can still be a factor for things like quality.
And on that front, the Nytone delivers in spades.
We’ll get to its functionality in a moment, but one of the biggest things to note about the Nytone bed wetting alarm is that it has a very small and discreet design. It’s designed to look similar to sports equipment, fitting on similarly to a belt. This has the side-benefit of being a lot more socially acceptable; if the child’s peers happens to see it, they won’t question it as much since it looks like a sports belt. This can do wonders for your child’s self-esteem since bedwetting can be such a psychologically damaging condition.
Since it has such a small design, it can also be comfortably worn to sleep. It may sound obvious, but comfort is one of the most important aspects since the idea is that your child develops the habit of automatically waking up when urination has to occur, and this can’t happen if sleep isn’t happening in the first place.
Perhaps an even better point is that the Nytone uses zero medication. It is simply a comfortably designed sensor combined with an alarm. That’s not to say that it’s not worth a bit of money—the company went through a lot of effort in making this product as attractive and approachable as possible. In any case, since it doesn’t use medication, it also has no side effects. It’s about as safe as it gets.
The 2nd generation model of the Nytone bed wetting alarm performs mostly the same functions as the first model, except with a more streamlined designed and more advanced electronics, allowing the sensor to activate the alarm with a very low response time. This works to prevent any kind of wetting from occurring in the first place, while at the same time teaching your child to wake up when nature calls.
As touched upon, the greatest strength of the Nytone is that it’s quite small and discreet. It can be easily hidden under the child’s clothing, preventing him or her from drawing any unwanted attention from peers.
The lack of medication is also nice, ensuring that the child will not go through any mental or physical side-effects. They simply put on the device and live life normally.
Additionally, the strap can be adjusted by the child, allowing for it to fit a wide range of body types and waist sizes.
Since the device is so small, it’s not unreasonable to be worried about its proper functioning as the child plays during recess, on playgrounds, etc. You might have to keep an eye out for this.
Also, some people might feel that the price is a little high. Still, it’s hard to put a price on your child’s future and well-being.
Overall, the Nytone bed wetting alarm is a solidly and attractively designed alarm that does exactly as advertised, and more. Its small, out-of-the-way design was also a very smart decision, making it a lot more approachable for both the child and peers. The price might seem slightly steep, but it will also end up saving you money on doctor visits and emergency clothes washing.
