I have a child who wet the bed nightly (often several times) until he was 8 years old. I just invested in a couple pair of washable, waterproof underwear and used a waterproof sheet protector to minimize the laundry. Definitely take a no big deal approach.

The washable waterproof underwear are great for an older child.
If your child shows signs of losing self esteem, then I truly recommend using a bedwetting alarm. My son used it at age 8 and learned to stay dry in about 6 weeks. He never had another wet night. And honestly, its not that hard to use. Your child learns what to do, and its literally only 3 minutes out of the whole night. But the joy on your child's face when he realizes he has learned to stay dry is the best! Get the book Prince Bravery and Grace -Attack of the Wet Knights wwwbraveryandgrace.com
