Have the doctor check his blood sugar levels to be on the safe side. When a child's blood sugar goes high the body tries to flush the sugar by making more urine. When my boy was 7 he began to wet the bed and was diagnosed (within weeks) with Type 1 insulin-dependent diabetes.
If his blood sugar levels are totally normal, then I would agree to wake him gently during the night (around 1 pm) to urinate, and then go back to sleep. To make sure that you wake up in order to get him up, drink lots of water before bedtime.
