Although bedwetting alarms are the most effective treatment for primary enuresis, many parents are still unfamiliar with the alarms and skeptical of its effectiveness. The Bedwetting Store recently published new survey results, which may provide some reassurance for parents who may be uncertain about using a bedwetting alarm for their child.

The treatments, which include sprinkling pig bladder bits onto a child’s bed and using hypnotherapy, are displayed in a timeline, starting from 1550 BC to the late ’90s.
