Okay, so 'whining' is normal as I've read, but his pattern has been at 10 or so I put him to bed (walk him downstairs to let him potty) he starts whining when I put him in his cage as usual but usually goes to bed, then at 2-3 he starts whining big time, I've been taking him out to pee cos I assumed it was bathroom related (and he does go) then I put him back in and go back to sleep then at 6 he starts up again, then 2-3 hours later starts up again. It's really killing my sleep should I just expect this? I don't let him eat or drink anything after 7. I've got his crate completely covered up with blankets so he can't see us and i've been slapping a newspaper outside the crate when he starts doing that to try and get him to be quiet sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Should I just completely ignore him? He's approximately 6 3/4weeks now, I'm thinking I should of waited longer before getting him ??? anyways, any advice would be appreciated.
