End Bedwetting Tonight with the Chummie

image Recently, popular musician and entertainer Sean Combs admitted that he was a bedwetter as a kid.  It’s a condition that affects millions of children every year and it can be one of the most stressful and highly undiagnosed conditions for kids nationwide.  It must be hereditary to some extent because I remember being a bedwetter, having dreams about urination and waking up in a wet bed until I was about 7.  Not too frequently to cause concern obviously since nothing was done about it. As a parent I have experience with potty training, and bed wetting – they seem to go hand in hand.  I was definitely tired of changing the sheets each day, and of buying a new mattress every few months when the protective sheets stopped working and my bed looked like a crime scene.

Introducing the Chummie, a nighttime bedwetting alarm that is a breakthrough treatment for boys and girls.  This patented system is a drug free, personalized system that offers a way to help stop bedwetting among children ages four and older in just a matter of weeks.  The Chummie alarm with built in proprietary algorithms constantly checks for urine detection throughout the night while your child sleeps, detecting accidents promptly.  The award winning Chummie is the world’s most advance bedwetting alarm treatment system with the fastest treatment time and highest success rate around, ultimately saving parents money, worry and stress over a short period of time. www.chummie.com

When ours arrived I immediately showed it to our four year old son.  I explained what it was and he enjoyed the little face.  I told him that if he started to wet at night an alarm would go off and he would vibrate. He was all systems go.  I could not figure out how to change the alarm sound. We cosleep which makes bedwetting even more of an inconvenience but I really did not want to add to the nightly nursing and waking schedule with a loud alarm. Oh well.

One night, that’s all it took and it didn’t even take a full night.  Somehow, I don’t know if he licked the sensor to test it, or let a little dribble out, but the Chummie went off right at bed time, not a time we normally have problems with.  My son looked shocked, and ran to the bathroom.  Then he wanted to take the Chummie off, I told him not until he had no more accidents.  He wore the Chummie that night, no wet bed and since two weeks ago we haven’t had a wet sheet again.

Was it the Chummie? Well, my son did not like the alarm and vibration and it may have been the push he needed to get him up out of bed at night. The Chummie site sells bed pads, Chummies for adults, stain remover and more. The system is very easy to use, the Chummie dood hooks to pajamas and the sensor to the outside and front of bottoms, flexitape is provided but you may find you use more than one. There is also a bed mat system called the One Drop Detection IntelliFlex Mat for Chummie Pro Alarm.  I was first introduced to the idea of bedwetting systems through a client’s experience helping her stepchild break a bedwetting habit at age ten.  These systems do work and can help children take control of their issue, leaving the embarrassment of wet sheets, and even the solitude of no sleepovers, behind them.

What I really loved about this system is their recycling program.  You can send in your used Chummie, it will be cleaned and inspected and sent to less fortunate children.
