Hi again all, Sorry, I once again crave your valuable advice please. First and foremost, the feed thing is now well & truly sorted, and we are nearly fully toilet trained - nearly! Again, thank you all for your help & advice. The final challenge will have, I have no doubt, no easy fix, but thought I would ask anyway. Every night, before my Wife & I retire, Muffin goes out, has a poop & a whiz, and then we settle him down, in his bed in the kitchen, radio on & small light on. Every night in the last week, after 10-20 mins, he wakes, and he howls & howls, barks and scatches at the kitchen door. We usually let him go a while in the hope he will stop, and and when he doesnt, so that I can get some sleep and to avoid waking up the Children, one who is 8, and the other who is 18 and working, my Wife goes downstairs to him, and ends up sleeping on the sofa, with Muffin beside her in his basket. This has happened every night for a week, and is unsustainable. We are trying to avoid bringing him into the bedroom to sleep as most of the people we know who have had the same problem have said they wished they hadnt. So, whilst I fully understand and accept he is a baby, and will need some company from his "Pack" makeup, coupled with the fact he will and does need to go to the toilet in the night, how do we go about getting him to settle down - and when is this likely to be possible? He is now 5 months old. Many thanks.
