In brief: The following
1st restrict fluid intake after supper or early evening.
Best chance for cure is bedwetting alarm, this is a device inducing a conditioning reflex. Child should be woken if he/she does not wake with alarm. In time child will percieve sensation of bladder fullness, like during the day, to which brain fails to respond in bedwetters. Ddavp (desmopressin) used as stop gap measure to reduce nocturnal urine production.

In brief: See below
If the problem is simple bed wetting, there is a medication called ddavp, (desmopressin) that can be used to provide dry nights.
It is not a cure. The only cure is time. However, bed wetting alarms may aid in the resolution.
