    This group of dogs I have now, sleep in their crates at night. I had no problem because from day 1, they went in at night. I have always given them a couple of treats,when they go in. This may sound strange, but if your bed is big enough-you may start with putting Rocco in the crate-on the bed. Then when he is used to the crate at night,put the crate down beside your bed. Give him a couple of his favorite treats when you start putting him in crate. What ever you decide to do,you have to stick with it.If the baby is going to be in your room-put the baby's bed in now,so that Rocco can get used to that.You don't want everything changing for him all at once.
    When I had human babies,I never had them in bed with us-unless I was feeding them. Then when they were older I had dogs in bed. The dogs I had one time were dobermans-and I had RH, I woke up crippled every morning because two dobermans slept on my side,as they weren't allowed on my husband's side! After they passed, I never allowed dogs on my bed anymore,as they crippled me! It will be hard for Rocco to understand,but start now because you don't want him to resent the baby.
    When you do have the baby, make sure you include him in everything that he is used to. Also I know people(who care) are quite fussy with the first. Dog licks, and a little dog hair doesn't hurt! I Pray to GOD that your baby is healthy and happy and that Rocco loves him/her.We miss you here and Best Wishes! @fastmatt613

    Thank you for all the replies! For the first 2 months or so, rocco would sleep in his crate in the kitchen every night with no problem. I had to go away for work for a few days and the wife let him sleep in bed. The rest is history. We don't plan on having the baby in the bed ever but the bassinet will be in the bedroom in the beginning. I guess we might just try gradual crate training just for sleep and see how we fare. And @YHSublime I completely agree with how better it is without a dog hogging up the blankets at night and being able to move lol

    UPDATE: we started putting Rocco's bed in our room. We ignored him when he cried to get picked up on the bed. He eventually went to sleep on his bed. After a few nights, it became a routine and I'm happy to say he's back to his house broken ways with no spite poops!

    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.
