I know. It's so sad. If my husband wasn't home at night during this time, I don't think I would be able to do it. It's totally only me that cares though. Mike and I were talking about how she didn't come to the door and whine to get in, and I said that it was likely because the gate was up that prevents her from coming upstairs and he said the gate was open the whole night! She just wanted to sleep on her own.

Bella is 2 and has been getting us up in the night for about a year now. She either wakes at 02.00 or 04.00. She goes out for a wee and a poop then goes straight back to sleep. My hubby and I take turns as to who takes her. We didn't get up this much when the kids were little but what can you do ?

yea see, Miya would totally have been doing everything to get in the room. I remember when we first brought her home, we thought we were going to have her sleep in the pen we built next to the bed...ha yea right. Even after we ignored her crying to be put into the bed, she climbed up the side of the mattress in the middle of the night. When I woke up, she was under the covers with us. From that day on, she's been in our bed. She is such a snuggler. When I woke up this morning, she immediately climbed on to my lap and into my robe..She's there now. Sometimes I'm just like, "ahhh Miya gimme some space!!!" lol but most of the time I love it. I def wouldn't be able to sleep without her. I put a pee pad up in the bedroom, just in case, and so I don't have to wake up randomly. She doesn't use it but I figure if she has to go bad enough, she will. It's the exact same one she uses downstairs so idk why she doesn't take to it.

Unfortunately we don't alternate. My husband works at a high risk job where he's on-call and usually sleep deprived anyway, so when he's home, I always make sure that I get up so he gets all the rest he can get. Not looking forward to the nights after we have a baby!

Maybe she won't use the pee pad in the bedroom for the same reason they won't go in their crate? Do you have stairs for her to get off your bed? Our bed is SO high and I haven't been able to find any tall enough. They would need to be huge.

I caved and brought her to bed with us last night! Didn't sleep very much though. I made sure she peed right before we went to bed, and I didn't put her water down until she had made herself comfy under the blanket so she wouldn't drink it all right away. She woke up at 4 am. Instead of letting her out, I just put her downstairs. Guess she'll have to be banished for a little while longer. If this isn't fixed, it's going to be a problem when we go out on the boat in the summer! She won't usually use a pee pad on the boat, and I am NOT kayaking her little bum to shore at 4 in the morning! I would probably fall in.

One of the reasons that Honey now sleeps in her crate was because of her constantly getting up in the night for a wee and a poo.
I figured we were constantly waking each other up as we were fidgety, and I need my beauty sleep lol!
So in her crate she went, I did feel sad as that's one of the only times she would cuddle up to me properly!
She's slept right through the night for months now, and seems happy in her crate. I would like to try her in bed with me again but feel like she'd go back to being a monkey and we'd be taking a step backwards? X

Yes we do have stairs for her to get off the bed, although it's pretty low anyway. I love her little stairs, she's so cute on them. They're only 3 tier though, so from the sounds of it, doesn't sound tall enough. Is your husband/bf good with building stuff? I know the really tall stairs are expensive. Petsmart had some on sale for cyber monday..how tall is your bed? I hear ya about kayaking to shore at 4AM!! Maybe if she has to go bad enough she will? Poor thing, you and her!

I'm starting to take my dog's food away earlier in the day, as they tend to poop overnight. My chi tends to pee so he wears diapers at night, but that's not preferable. I wouldn't take away access to water bc your chi could become dehydrated, plus his water consumption can be a red flag if it increases or declines. For example, my chi has a bad liver, so if he starts to drink a lot of water I know his liver is getting worse and he's getting closer to the end, but I can also take him to the vet and try new meds and more testing to pinpoint the cause of his liver issues. At the beginning of the summer his increased water consumption told me it was time to get him a hair cut, he could have overheated and died from dehydration so easily if I had taken his water away, even though the AC was running.
