When Bella was younger I would carry her and then realised what Karlin said and thought "I am not teaching her to go outside herself" so whenever she would wake up I would say "Come on Bella outside!" and then when she got to the grass I would say "potty!" it started to click with her after that. Actually I still do this after sleeping and eating but she is getting more reliable with taking herself out in between. Good Luck!
