My son is 8 and we just went to the doctors for this. If your child is a boy there is something called a "fatty pocket" right above his private area. When your child is sleeping they may get into a deep deep sleep not waking theirselves up. All of the urine stores in this area and is sometimes released when layed on or applied presure. The doctor recommended putting an alarm either in his room to wake him up to use the bathroom or there is even an alarm that attaches to their underwear. This very expensive though. Also..if your child is drinking right before bedtime that may be causing it also. There are many factors to weigh out.
