Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
There are several ways to treating bed-wetting. Most is psychological problem. You must wake him just before he usually urinates in the bed and he must go to the toilet compulsorily and urinate there. Also let him drink water around 2 hours before going to sleep. Also evaluate him for Diabetes mellitus and Diabetes insipidus from his Paediatrician. You can discuss other methods with the Paediatrician to help cure this problem.

Do the below mentioned Behavior therapy to get relief from bedwetting.
1. talk with him about his thinking on the wetting,
2. if he also feels sorry and wishes to stop it, than make an agreement of disturbing his sleep by making him fully awake (break up in sleep is must)
3. if there are multiple time wetting, decied the timing of wetting and do the same process that many times.
4. Be consistent in above mentioned practice for minimum 15 days
