Very helpful reminder watches for toilet training
It's time to stop wetting accidents during the day
Reminder watches are a useful tool to create structure by timed voiding and prevent daytime wetting. Thanks to the cheerful colors and cool designs, your child will even enjoy wearing the watch.
The children's reminder watches can easily be set to give a discreet (vibration) alarm at different times during the day. Each moment your child is reminded to go to the bathroom. In this way, regularity in urination behavior is developed (timed voiding) and this prevents wet pants, but also removes the feeling of shame from your child.
A good daytime bathroom routine has also a positive effect on bedwetting. So the reminder watch might be a good supplement to the bedwetting alarm training.
What does the reminder watch do as a solution against daytime wetting?
You probably recognize it; your child who keeps postponing urination and doesn't take the time to go to the bathroom. The result is (completely) wet pants. And maybe several times a day. Not going to the bathroom regularly and holding the urine for a long time can lead to annoying problems in addition to wet pants, such as:
- Overactive bladder
- Overloaded sphincter/pelvic muscle
- Kidney problems
Children may also have difficulty holding their urine because of an underdeveloped bladder, or because they have not yet learned how to control their urination.
It is very important to encourage your child to go to the bathroom regularly and to learn to listen to their body when they feel an urgent need to urinate. A reminder watch offers a solution. The basic principle is that your child should go to the toilet itself if it feels like it has to pee. In addition, your child will receive a reminder (via a (vibrating) alarm) during the day to go to the bathroom. This also involves trying to urinate. Every time your child has had no wetting accidents for 3 days in a row the time between the alarm moments increases slightly, so your child is increasingly challenged to listen to its own body. After a few weeks, your child will fully listen to its own body and have developed its own bathroom routine and will probably no longer need the reminders of the watch.
Children are mainly busy playing during the day and are often completely absorbed in it. As a result, other things are easily forgotten or may not (yet) be self-evident. A reminder watch can offer a solution for a child from the age of 4.
Is a reminder watch suitable for your child?
In many cases, discussions often arise about sending your child to the bathroom “No, I don't have to.” But 5 minutes later... wetting accident… Recognizable?
With the reminder watch you give 'control' to your child. As a reminder, it receives a discreet (vibration) signal to go to the bathroom and this creates the feeling that it decides itself when it goes to the bathroom and not you as a parent.
When do you use a reminder watch?
- To go to the bathroom (regularly) at home, at school and outdoors and to reduce the risk of wetting accidents.
- By timed voiding, the bladder does not become tense and you learn to gain control over it
- Adding structure by timed voiding will help to get rid of bedwetting at night
- A useful tool for toilet training during the day and to prevent wetting accidents.
All reminder watches for children can give a very discreet vibrating alarm at regular intervals. This way, not everyone hears the alarm, which gives a safer and more confident feeling. Only the VibraLite models offer the option for an audio signal as a reminder alarm instead of vibrating.
Benefits and results of a child's reminder watch
These watches are designed as a tool for children, to remind them of certain moments or 'actions' during the day. It has the ability to set up to 15 alarms during the day. This gives your child a signal to go to the bathroon, for example. The reminder watches with alarm can therefore also be used for different purposes:
- Timed voiding
- Reminder for medicine intake
- Reminder to drink during the day
- Homecoming alarm
The children's watches are easy to set to go off at different times. Each watch has its own instructional video that clearly shows this. Super nice tool that results in:
- Well trained bladder
- No more insecure feelings for your child
- One less 'worry' as a parent
- Less disappointment and less laundry
- Above all; a happy child
Important : a reminder watch for children should not be confused with a bedwetting alarm against bedwetting. It is not intended for that and it does not have the desired effect, there are better tools to tackle that.
