1. I remember someone (Sabina?) posting about using an alarm for her son that woke him up when he started to pee. Would this work for a girl and, if so, where would one find this item? My boyfriend (how weird to use that word, but I guess he is) has an 8-year old daughter who is still having regular accidents at night.

2. My dd has gotten this awful habit of biting her upper and lower lips--all red and chapped now around circling her lips. I was thinking that maybe that stuff that people use on nails to discourage nail biting might work. Any ideas on what it's called or where to find it? (or other ideas on how to help dd break this habit?)

Thanks!

Hi there Tara, It was Sabina and I am going to assume she ordered it online. I wish I can remember the site I used for DSs watch alarm to remind him to pee, but not remembering at all. It could be used for girls or boys. If you search online you should be able to find it easily. And liking the word boyfriend....is this the same guy you mentioned a while back about going on a date? Regarding the lips, my immediate thought is to put on aquaphor often and maybe even pick up some hydrocortisone 1% ointment (make sure it is ointment) to put on twice a day to clear it up. How to stop the licking is a good question, she may not like the taste of the hydrocortisone, that could potentially help. Is she nervous/anxious about anything? Or did her lips dry out and then nee that cycle starts it can be hard to break the licking...?maybe Not great advice, hopefully someone else will be more helpful.

I do recall Sabina mentioning that alarm. Im sorry I dont remember the brand name. I do remember it took about 2 weeks of hard work but then her son was fully trained and thrilled. I believe it had a sensor that you put in the underwear.

Boyfriend?!! Great news!! What a year for youPhD and a boyfriend!! Is this the same guy you mentioned you were going on a date with a while back? Inquiring minds want to know as much as you want to share!!

My DS used the alarm and went from wetting EVERY night to not wetting at all within 2 weeks. He had 2 accidents in the two months following the two weeks or training and nothing since. He was 7! Super success! The alarm is called Malem. I got it from Amazon and it was expensive, around $80.00. I still have the alarm, if you'd like to have it.I'd be happy to send it to you for free. It's completely clean; I cleaned the wire and clip with rubbing alcohol. We last used it a year ago. I would be so pleased if it could help someone else. I think it would work for girls as well. The clip attaches to tight underwear and it detects the slightest drop of wetness.

As far as the licking biting goes, my DD licked her lips when she was in 1st grade and had a red circle around her lips. It looked terrible. We used hydrocortisone cream to clar it up and I got her to carry chapstick wherever she goes. She was older than your DD though and totally got it. She did NOT want to have this again and now whenever she has a cold or dry lips she uses the chapstick! I'm not sure if the nailbiting tincture could be used for that, but you could probably find that at a pharmacy or maybe even Amazon...

Hi Sabina,

That would be so terrific if you were willing to part with your alarm. To get my address, write to s p s uch at g's mail. Those first letters before the "at" are all one word. (I don't know why we do this with email address but know everyone does!)

Yay!

The lips, oy, the lips! I sneak in while she is sleeping and put on aquaphor. this is keeping the redness at bay but not addressing the habit...
