Wow, had a surprisingly easy night. I'm not sure if I just slept through his crying or whether he didnt. I slept right through till 4:30 when I had to get up for my own toilet break. I think he must have heard me get up because he cried and scratched on the door for about 10 minutes before settling down again. He had another go at around 5 which is the time he'd been waking up every morning. I got up at 6 and he went absolutely NUTS with excitement. Took about 15 minutes to settle him down. I had to clean up his night time mess before I could open the back door (he'd done a couple of poos and a couple of wees but at least it was contained on the pads and not all over the lounge room floor!).
Next thing is to start tackling his nipping at my legs and tearing at my clothes. Is it ok to use the laundry (where he sleeps) as his time out/naughty corner when he's bad? I dont want him to think that going in there is punishment.
I bought him a childs play pen to use as a time out area but he's still small enough to squeeze through the bars
