No their is NOTHING you can do. His poor little bladder is still immature. He will grow out of it when his body matures more. A lot of kids are still in not night trained till they are 9 or 10 yrs old.

When I was little, my mom used to come in before she went to bed (a good few hours after we went to bed) and sit us on the potty. She kept an extra potty chair in our room specifically for this purpose and I guess it we rarely had accidents. I haven't tried potty training yet but I'll probably keep this in mind when I do. Good luck!

If he can't stay dry through the night, you might try setting a timer for however long he can stay dry, then take him to the bathroom. That will get him into the habit of waking himself up to go if he is urinating in his sleep. Some kids just can't go all night without using the bathroom. It is just something you grow out of, but limiting drinks near bedtime and staying away from soda might help.
