My 10.5 year old daughter still wets the bed 2 to 3 times a week. We have done the alarm with her three times and each time she’s dry for weeks but gradually goes back to wetting.
She’s had an X-ray for constipation and been checked for UTI.
Has anyone here had a child that the alarm didn’t work permanently for?
I’m at my wits end cause she’s so sad about it.

Ask the GP for Minirin tablets. They work well in conjunction with alarm training.

Also, when using an alarm, they need to be completely dry for 3 weeks before you stop the alarm, and if they wet again, use the alarm again.
Get this DVD, and follow the drinking program, then try the alarm again. https://www.bedwetti...tting-cured-dvd

I have the tablets. I’ve used them for camp and sleepovers. Do I use them on a daily basis? Never knew that!
She was dry for three weeks. Sadly she is so scared of the alarm that she sleeps lightly while we have it. I don’t think it works for her.
I’ll watcg the video. Thanks so much for your help.

Yep, me! I grew out of it when I started to go through puberty though, about 12.

You can use the tablets daily for a period of time under the guidance of your GP, which can help. There was an explanation of why it can help...which I can’t recall now! It did drastically reduce the amount of bed wetting (which was daily) for my son after stopping the tablets, however not completely. I think he took them daily for a month or so...can’t quite remember the details.
My son was like your DD, the alarm was moderately successful. In the end, the thing that ‘fixed’ it was time. From about your DD’s age, he could go several weeks dry and then wet again for several consecutive nights...then he’d go a few months and then wet again etc. He eventually stopped wetting completely at 13.

We are using the tablets daily while we use the alarm system.

The alarm didn't work at all for my DD. She grew out of the bedwetting at 14. No advice, sorry, but perhaps that will give you some hope.

I could be way off here as my daughter was only 5 but I wil suggest just in case. Does she snore? My daughter had sleep apnoea and although toilet trained at 16months old often wet the bed. From the day she got her tonsils and adenoids out she hasn't wet the bed one more time.
