I would agree with taking the child to the doctor. There could be a medical reason as to why they are wetting the bed. Our daughter is 7 and a half and it wasn't until a couple months ago, that the bed wetting stopped. Her problems started 3 years ago and her wetting problems were caused by her bladder contracting on it's own (kind of like in a baby..where there is no control over it). She was put on Detrol LA to make it so that it could not contract on it's own. It worked great! She was only on this medication for 6 months to a year, if I remember right, but it helped a lot! (yes, I said she just recently stopped bed wetting, but she was also suffering from GI issues that affected her bladder).
