    I'm not sure what this means. We have one where the wetness sensor clip attaches to the undies; this is then connected with a long wire to the "box" that actually makes all the noise. This "box" can then be clipped anywhere - we clip it onto his pants as he finds that more comfortable than clipping on his shirt at the neckline.

    I would say the most important thing is to be prepared for it and do a lot of research ahead of time.
    The Bedwetting store is a good resource. http://bedwettingstore.com/
    You really have to think about any other possible causes before starting. Functional constipation is one of them. Otherwise you are setting your kid up for failure. I would suggest you talk to your pediatrician first.
    My DS did not have a dry night in his life until he was 7, and he still wet the bed most nights. We had several go arounds with alarms. Even went through three of them. (For the price they are stop working easily, two new one used.) We finally just gave up, went to a specialist, still didn't get far, got meds for sleepovers and just waited it out. He stopped when he was 13. I got a good washer and extra sheets.

    We had the Chummy (which I would not recommend) at first. DD wanted one that she could control the volume and sound on, so we went with this one.

    I think the biggest factors that led to success were that she got to choose the alarm, and she was completely on board and committed to wearing it with a goal date in mind. It took several weeks of nightly alarming, but it did work in about 4 weeks. She has had one accident in the past year.

    I saw some undies that have a place for the alarm to clip or a different system that has a wire and needs to be clipped onto the tee.

    Ours had a sensor that attached by clip to the underwear. We put a pull-up over the underwear so that we didn't have to change sheets in the middle of the night. We also layered a few mattresses protectors just in case.
