Review: the Wet-Stop3 potty training alarm, plus a Potty Monkey giveaway!

January 29, 2014

UDATE: The winner of the giveaway is comment #82, Theresa! Thanks to all who entered!

My daughter, who is 4, has recently begun nighttime potty training. She has been potty trained during the daytime for years now, but both of my children are such deep sleepers that they were unable to potty train successfully at night. We successfully potty trained my older daughter a few years back using a nighttime sensor that woke her up and eventually taught her body how to successfully wait until the morning to go potty. However, the system we used was messy and cumbersome, and I wasn’t a huge fan. (I was a fan of the results, just not the product itself!) So when I saw that PottyMD (makers of the Potty Monkey that moms know and love) offered a bedwetting alarm that seemed simple and clean, I was eager to try it out. The Wet-Stop3 comes in three colors, and we chose pink, since we’re all very girly around here. We have been using it for a little over a week and I’m so very pleased with the results! Here’s the official product description, and then I’ll share our experience.

wetstop3colors

Wet-Stop3: a Vibrating Bedwetting Alarm and a Traditional Bedwetting Alarm, All in One.

There are many features for the Wet-Stop3: 5 variable alarms, alarm and/or vibrating capabilities, flashing LED button, magnetic shirt fastener, uses 2 AAA batteries, replaceable sensor, easy to dry, easy to attach sensor, 2-step turn off process, instructions in six languages, and a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty against defects. The Wet-Stop3 comes with a reward system with chart and star stickers and the “The Complete Bedwetting Book” on CD. You may also now purchase an extra sensor for the Wet-Stop3.

Wet-Stop3 is convenient as well as effective. The Wet-Stop3 reacts immediately to the first few drops of moisture, teaching the child to stop the flow of urine before the bed becomes wet. During this learning process, dry underpants will be needed but the family will be spared the bother of remaking the entire bed. In less than six months, many children will no longer require use of the Wet-Stop3.

Please check with your insurance company as many insurances are now covering enuresis alarms. Use HCPCS code S8270 when contacting your insurance company.

I have been putting off the nighttime potty training process, mainly because I really love sleep, but we were reaching the end of our Pull-Up supply and I figured it was probably time. The night we started the process, my daughter put on the Wet-Stop3 and then used a Pull-Up over it (which is not necessarily what the official instructions said to do, but it’s working for us.) The alarm went off three times the first night, two times the next night, and then one time per night for about a week. When I heard the alarm over the baby monitor I met my daughter in the bathroom and helped her change into a new Pull-Up. I was really pleased to see progress so quickly, as I am well aware that sometimes it can take months! We are now on night three of no alarm, and my daughter asked last night to stop wearing the alarm. I’ve agreed, with the caveat that we can continue to go alarm-free as long as her Pull-Ups are dry. I have been SO pleased with the Wet-Stop3. It has been simple and not at all messy. Plus, it was so easy to detach and reattach that I was able to get back to sleep quickly during the night, which was very important to me. My daughter really liked the star stickers and progress chart that came with the Wet-Stop3 (see above photo). I highly recommend this product to anyone whose children need a little help with potty training (ages 4 and older, according to the official product information.)

The Wet-Stop3 system retails for $50 and can be purchased on the PottyMD website.

The folks at PottyMD are allowing me to give a Potty Monkey away to one Thrifty Christy reader! If you’re not familiar with Potty Monkey, please read my full review here. It’s a fantastic product!
