When I had a puppy I never got up in the middle of the night to take her out.
I paper trained her like we did when I was a kid . I set up a place in my house where my puppy could pee on paper , there where no doggie pads at the time. People paper trained all the time when I was growing up and the dog did just fine. You should decide what works best for your dog and you and forget about other people say. I would had been tried too if I woke up every two hours . I think this might get your dog in the habit of wanting to go out in the middle of the night when he get older.
