Night time accidents

My DS was late at PT. He has physical disabilities, so I have to help him get his pants down, get him on and off the potty, etc. He has been in big boy undies since 3 yrs 2 months old. He does not have accidents during the day or at nap time, but he does still have accidents at night time (not every night). I do not put a diaper on him because I want him to know that he's gone (although I hate the clean up) He wakes up after he has peed, but does not wake before it happens.
We just purchased a new bedroom set, along with a new mattress (I am protecting with a mattress pad, and plastic sheet over top), so I've talked to DS about his bed wetting, and how I want him to wake up BEFORE he pees, because he is in a BIG BOY BED now.
I know it is often suggested to limit fluids before bed, but that is not an option for us; DS has to be given formula via his feeding tube at night to make sure he gets the calories and fluids he needs.
I've thought about "good nights", but do they allow the child to feel they are wet? I want DS to be aware that he's had an accident.
Any suggestions on how to get DS to wake up?
