The one thing we forgot on our Colorado trip was our bedwetting alarm. We realized the omission about 30 minutes into the trip, but the idea of turning around and losing a whole hour of driving was not appealing. In our defense, it was originally packed for leaving on Friday but then we decided to leave on Saturday and used it Friday night. It didn't make it back into the bags. :(

In all honesty, I wasn't that upset. It meant we got a full week of more or less uninterrupted sleep. Ahhh...

We bought some pullups and used those while we were gone, and they were pretty much soaked every night by the end of the week. After getting back we of course went back to the alarm. The first few nights were alarm nights, but then we had four nights in a row of our BW getting up and going to the bathroom in the middle of the night without the alarm going off.

So: While I think we're going to be using the alarm for awhile, it definitely seems to make a difference in his body's ability to recognize the need to wake up to go to the bathroom.
