    Default When will she make it through the night?

    She is 6 months old and goes to bed at 8:30 Pm and then needs to go out to pee around midnight and then again at 3 am (the 3am might be #1 and #2)....I get up with her to let her out....the sleep disruption reminds me of the newborn infant days 23 years ago with our son. Any thoughts on when I'll be able to sleep through? We all go to bed by 8:30 as my husband gets up for work at 4:15 . I would love to be able to sleep say from 8:30 until even 3 am. It's the 11 pm/midnight that hurts the most. Thanks for any thoughts or advice.

    Is she crated at night? I'm just curious how she is waking you up?

    take away her water say around 6:30 pm, and have her last pee at 8:15pm , then give it to her again in the morning.
    just a suggestion

    She is not crated. She sleeps on the floor next to our bed. When she has to "go" she goes to our bedroom door and stands and if I take too long she sometimes whimpers... We have hardwood floors so I can hear her nails as she walks to the door.

    Does she go to bed or do 'you' go to bed? Emma was around 6/7 months before we didn't have to take her out anymore. She was able to hold her bladder all night for the most part by that age. She still occasionally had to be let out. She sleeps in the bed with us so what I did if I woke up out she went whether she was sleeping up until about the 6 month stage. What you may want to if you're still up is to let her out one more time before you fall asleep. We usually watch TV for a bit after going to bed so one of us would take her back outside. I think that's going to be your success in her going all night without having to potty.

    I see that she sleeps on the floor. That's good though that she lets you know she needs to go out. Is she actually peeing when she's let out or does she just go out to explore? Get her back out about 9:30/10 and I bet you see a difference in her waking you up to go out.

    That's a very good point as well, when Bacon was a puppy he would wake up and cry, we would take him outside and he would just wander around and not pee.

    Raven just turned a year old last weekend and she still gets me up at 3 sometimes. She doesn't play though, she goes right out and does her pee and poo. Funny thing is her water is up by 8:30 and she has her dinner by 6:30. It's killing me as well. She sleeps in both her crate and sometimes the bed with me.

    Dogs are famous for this, mine included, and it doesn't matter their age. They go outside but just because you want them to do their business they may want to do other things like check out the yard. I'm always nagging Mike when he lets them out for the evening - "did they go potty I ask him"? Know what he says, lol, "well I let them out". Dohhhhhhh.

    I guess the upside is that she lets you know. God knows it's a miserable thing to step down from the bed in the middle of the night when you yourself have to go and end up stepping in pee or poo.

    It shouldn't be long before she sleeps all night. A crate may help. We do not restrict water from ours at all and they are crate trained and it seems to help.
