DS doesn't want to wear nappies at night but doesn't wake for wee...

Ds is nearly 3 and dry through the day. Two days ago he decided he didn't want to wear a nappy at night so I invested in some bed mats and put him to bed nappyless. Monday night didn't lift him when I went to bed and he woke at 0020, wet through and freezing cold. Changed bed and put him back down in a nappy, he was half asleep and couldn't complain. Last night I tried to lift him when I went to bed but he point blank refused and not wanting to wake him, I left him. He woke at 0130 wet, so changed bed again and put him back down in a nappy.

Am I doing the right thing to try and lift him? Will he take time but eventually be dry? Shall I just put up with the extra washing and feel happy that progress is being made?

I'll try the pull ups - thanks.

TrinityRhino, it's not that he can't get up for a wee - he's in a bed and Iput the potty next to his bed - I just think he sleeps too heavily and doesn't yet wake at the sensation of needing a wee at night.
