In brief: Stepwise

Check healthtap health guide for previous answers by us.
Start with stopping fluids after supper, toilet 2 hours after bed, consider bedwetting alarm, medication if above fails, initially for sleep-overs or vacations. Good luck.

In brief: Check for sleep apne

Have him checked for sleep apnea.
This is a frequently overlooked cause of bedwetting. It can also cause him to do poorly in school.

In brief: Wetting

Make sure there is nothing else going on.
Sleep apnea and snoring can contribute to more urine production at night and contribute to bedwetting. Other recommendation is taking child to bathroom about 1-2 hours after he falls asleep and limiting liquid at night. If needed medications can be helpful but usually this is last resort.
