You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers!
Why does this work?
Potty Patrol is designed to notify you when your child wets so that you can place your child on the toilet immediately. Being placed on the toilet while the event is still fresh in your child’s mind helps the child make the connection between cause and effect more quickly and effectively.
What’s my role as the parent?
Potty Patrol Toilet Training Alarm Diapers are intended to be closely monitored by a parent. To increase the likelihood of creating new, positive habits, we highly recommend you devote a complete day, if not a weekend, to focus entirely on your child.
How does the alarm work?
The alarm is automatically activated once snapped onto the front of the sensor diaper. Once it detects wetness, the alarm will alert the parent and child by playing a short siren followed by “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,” twice. Unsnap the alarm from the used diaper to turn it off and reset it. It’s now ready to store or to be snapped on a new diaper.
What if I run out of diapers?
Potty Patrol Toilet Training Alarm Diaper Refill Kits are available for purchase separately and can be used with the alarm provided in this kit. Some parents will find that a starter kit is all they need, while others will make use of the refill kits.
How many refill kits will my child need?
There is no one-size-fits-all solution in potty training. As stated above, some parents will find that one Potty Patrol Toilet Training Alarm Diaper Starter Kit is all their child needs, while others will make use of one or more refill kits. It’s important to be flexible to the needs of your individual child.
Does the refill kit include an alarm?
Potty Patrol Refill Kits provide sensor diapers to be used with the alarm provided in the original Potty Patrol Starter Kit. Purchase starter kits and refill kits here.
Can the alarm diapers be used overnight?
Although Potty Patrol Potty Training Alarm Diapers are not specifically designed for nighttime use, you can try using them as a substitute for other nighttime alarm options, which are usually far more expensive.
Do I need to purchase batteries?
Batteries are included pre-installed in the alarm.
