Don't give him water, coffee or tea after 6 in the evening... Only sips of water after having dinner. Wake him up deliberately after 2hrs of sleep and make him void urine. Continue this, he will stop bed wetting..

Also try behavioural modification like positively reinforcing and encouraging him when he doesnt bed wet for a day. Add a monthly chart to note the frequency of bed wetting. Behavioural therapies go a long way in such children.
