Default litter training - multiple locations

Coco is 8 almost 8 months. I got her over a month ago. She is litter trained. I take her out potty several times a day and do my best not to let her have any accidents in the house. I have an extra large crate where I keep a bed and water toys and a litter box with a potty pad and pine litter on top. She stays in there when I go to work (most days one of us is at home, rarely left alone very long).
She uses the litter box, which I am very happy about. She goes potty outside when I say go potty.
My question is, we have a two story house and the little bugger now jumps off the bed!!! so would be good to have a litter box in the bedroom so we wouldn't have to go let her out at night if she needed to potty but I wonder if having a few litter box in the house be more confusing for Coco.

thoughts?

I think that would be fine. Dogs are smart enough to figure out the difference between the outside and a litter box inside. Mine all go to pads (fabric ones) in the house, as well as outside.

Mine have multiple locations and it works, although honestly they aren't 100% clean like some peoples here. I don't think it's the multiple locations that cause the occasional accidents. By occasional I mean they will go weeks without an accident. (They also go outside, on command.)

Thanks I will go get another litter bix for the bedroom. Now, the other problem is her jumping off the bed. We have steps (Mitsy used them to go up one the bed but always jumped off the bed) Coco is only 4lbs I don't want her jumping off and injuring herself.
