Limit the fluids at least 1-2 hours before bedtime and have your child use the bathroom before going to bed. Sometimes having the parents assist the child to the bathroom before they go to bed helps also. Constipation is also a common cause with bedwetting. The use of bedwetting alarms have had good results.

In brief: See his doctor

Has he wet the bed his entire life or is this a return of wetting after having had a pattern of dry nights? Either problem is best addressed by his doctor. While awaiting his doctor visit, make sure that he is not constipated as this can exacerbate the problem. Don't blame, punish or redicule for wet nights.
Praise him for dry ones. Consider a bedwetting alarm as this can train most to stay dry.
