Get her help!
My 8-year old used to wet the bed and we got her a bedwetting alarm. There are a number of alarms to chose from. At that age, I would recommend a Chummie Bedwetting Alarm. Its what worked for my daughter. It's at, but I recommend you do a little more research first.

Good luck dear.

Congratulations. Your child is one of 20% of children who are still wetting the bed at the age of 5. Which makes her totally normal.

What sort of things have you tried to help her out? Have you tried waking her before you go to bed to get her to go to the toilet? Have you tried limiting her fluid intake after dinner at night?

Personally, I wouldn't be overly fussed at this point, unless this is a new thing. Give it a little more time. If, in a year or so, she is still bedwetting, have her checked by a doctor to rule out medical issues, and also consider other strategies, but at 5, it is still pretty common.
