It provides in depth information on what to expect when using a bedwetting alarm, how parents should respond and common children’s responses. After years of treating children with bedwetting, the author noticed that the same parental questions and concerns kept occurring. Parents worried that they did something to contribute to the bedwetting or that there was something "wrong" with their child. Sometimes embarrassment kept them from seeking treatment until their child was much older, or well-meaning advice suggesting that they needed to wait "until their child grew out of it" delayed treatment. In the book, Seven Steps to Nighttime Dryness, the author has outlined easy steps for families to follow in their quest for dryness. These are the same steps that the author uses successfully in her practice for treating children with bedwetting. The extensive question and answer section provides sought after advice for parents.

The bed pads are designed with an absorbent layer and a waterproof barrier to protect the mattress and bedding. These waterproof bed pads are machine washable and capable of absorbing up to 4 cups of fluid, more than an adult bladder can hold. The Waterproof bed pads are placed over the mattress and above the fitted sheet.
Select from six different bed pad options by size and tuck-in flaps. The tuck-in flaps are 18 inches on each side to tuck between the mattress and the box springs.
