be patient! Many kids sleep too soundly during the night and don't wake to use the bathroom until they are older. It usually resolves when they get older and the bladder can hold more at one time. My older daughter was 6 I believe when we finally had reliable night time dryness. Remember they cannot help it. Although it can be frustrating, please don't get mad at the child.

Stop worrying hell grow out of bed wetting if he's a sound sleeper he may simply not feel the urge, give it time it's pretty normal by 5 he should be completely dry at night

Maybe your son drinks too much during the day. I know that if us adults, or trained children, drink too much during the day we have to go during the night. Try to stay calm. I know it's frustrating. I believe one of my brothers is still having issues at night. Maybe another reason that may be happening is that there is tension in the home. I know that my brother was having more issues when my parents would argue. I'm not trying to judge or say that the above things are happening, but those things do effect the children. You could also try encouraging him to stay dry by saying something like "If you stay dry for 7 nights you can ." That's helping my daughter and she just turned 3. We have been trying for almost a year now. I hope this is a bit of advice that may be helpful.
