I was thinking that wasn't enough food either. You might want to call your vet and see if maybe upping her food would help.

wondering what all you have tried in the kong...perhaps something she absolutely loves in there might work better...IDK just a suggestion. I never fed peanut butter in ours I did small pieces of turkey or chicken frozen with broth and some kibble. But that's what worked for me....

I'm seeing a lot of variation about what people should feed puppies. The breeder just set out a full bowl of food at all times. So my puppy is larger than most her age.

I've read anywhere from 1/3 cup each feeding to 1 cup. Anybody know what is best?

oh man, that doesn't sound bad at all to us but we go to bed at 9 pm and my husband gets up at 430 for work so really I'd only have to do the 2 am pee time. I know it sucks for you but I sure hope I'm as lucky!

Bentley was fed the same way at the breeders so his belly was huge when I got him. My Vet says 1/2 C, 3 times a day. He was terrible about wanting more food, drove me insane! Now I add 1/2 can of unsalted green beans to his evening meal. He loves it, feels fuller and it only adds 20 calories.

I fed 3/4 cup 3x a day. I think I'd probably reduce the amount for the next pup (whenever that will be).

I think that's pretty good for such a little'un. Loki would not settle back in his crate after his 4.30am. If I put him back in, he would bark continuously until we couldn't take it any longer. After two nights like that, I just went into the lounge with him & stuck the TV on. That way my husband, who works full time, could go back to sleep, & I would fall asleep on the sofa when Loki did. Fortunately, Loki started going longer at night within a few days, but he was starting his day (& mine) at around 5.30 for around three weeks & I was exhausted. Gradually he slept a bit longer each week until now at four months he goes until 6.45 ...so in the crate at 11.30pm & straight through til then, so good sleep for us, but its taken several weeks. Your baby will soon start going longer.

Our pup Rocky will be 10 weeks old. We use the pen that is in my 13 yr old daughter's room. It's large enough to have water, sleeping area and pads. He's on that same schedule as yours. My hubby and I take shifts. I do late night, he does early morning which is 5am.

He doesn't bark or whine but I'm (obviously) a late nighter. I check on him at 1am and he's up and wants to play. I find he may have spilled his water but that he just wants to play and always hits the pee pads in my room as soon as I bring him in. Sometimes he poops. Then plays. I check his pads in the pen, clean it up and put him back in 30 min later until 5:00 am when hubby gets him. Seems to be the schedule.

This Friday, I plan on weaning him off the 1:00 am play date and make myself not check on him. I can't help it though. I'm sure I'm in the 'what NOT to do' column. Just can't stop myself he's so darn precious! I say Friday because hubby and daughter are not in bed by 9pm and we can expand his time out of the pen and get him pooped out to get through the 1am play date.

My hubby does sleep in the downstairs guest room during this new puppy time. I couldn't imagine doing late shift AND early shift. It goes by so fast I can't believe I tell him, "don't grow up!" It won't last forever.

I do remember to be flexible in the beginning and then to get on somewhat of a schedule. I'm just trying to tell MYSELF that.

Thank you everyone for the encouragement! I have some wonderful news!

I played hard with Libby and kept her up until we went to bed around 11:30. Then she woke up at 5:30 for pee break. I let her out and figured she was hungry. Gave her breakfast (3/4 cup) and put her back to bed. And guess what!? She slept until 8:30!!!!!!


Thank you all soooooo much for your help! This puppy is my world and she is such a blessing to me. It just makes it THAT much better when my husband and I are rested. I feel extremely lucky that Libby is housebroken already and getting on a normal schedule. She is doing very well. Much thanks to the kind people that take time out of their busy days to help people like me.

Blessings!

Meg

Great to hear that you have got some extra sleep. Wonderful, isn't it? Loki slept from 11.30pm straight throught to 6.55am, so good sleep for everyone, & the alarm clock woke us up before he did ...that's a first! My husband gets up at 6.45am, so this morning we had the luxury of a ten mins lie-in.
