A.

Paediatrician

Bedwetting is a very common problem in children of this age. It certainly can cause children a lot of concern and unhappiness. Your daughter is still a bit too young to start on one of the many medical treatments that would assist her. Try using a star chart and reward system first. You can read about the star chart reward system on Google and adapt one that will suit your daughter the best. If there is no improvement by the time that she is 5 years old she should see her paediatrician.
