Bed wetting is also known as 'enuresis'. It is one of the most common problems in children of your son's age. It is a cause of a great deal of embarrassment to your son. He certainly does not want to wet his bed but he cannot control his passing of urine due to an immaturity of the valve leading out of his bladder. There are many successful treatments for enuresis including special alarms which work well to several types of medicines. Please take your son back to the paediatrician. It is certainly time that he was started on treatment.
