How are all the puppies sleeping?

Just trying to make myself feel like I’m not the only one with a puppy not sleeping very well.
Last night mine settled herself in her crate at about 10.00. She then was up at 2.30 and had a pee, then 3.30 for a poo and then up at 5.30 to pee again. Had breakfast at 6 and then went back to sleep for an hour.
She’s 10 weeks old now. Does that sound normal?

Sounds about right, my pup is 6 months now but the night interruptions probably stopped for good around 14 weeks. And gradually reduced to one wake up call until then

My little one now goes to bed at about 11:00 pm. She usually crashes out with me in the lounge in the evening then wants to play for around half an hour before I put her in the crate and say good night. I get up at around 6:00 am then let her out for a pee and a poo. It was about 16 weeks before I discovered she could go all night without needing to go out.

I was pretty lucky I guess that she was a pup that took to the crate instantly. After the first few nights when she cried a little for the first half hour, I never heard a peep out of her and she has always slept in the kitchen from day 1.

I have a litter of 6 labrador puppies at the moment. They are now 6 weeks old and beautiful. Nights are fine, we don't here a thing from 2200 until about 0500. We think that is because they are altogether. Daytime is a nightmare of cleaning up pee and poo and pee and poo. Repeatedly! Still trying to decide whether or not to keep one......

can't do a puppy thread without pictures!

Thanks for the replies. Sounds like I’m in for a few more weeks of it then.
As long as there’s going to be an end to it I don’t mind.
Here’s a picture of her...

Ooh...she's a beauty! I'd forgive everything she does!

@Newpupsoon Yes, don't worry. Yours sounds pretty normal and it will get significantly better in about 1-2 month's time.

Reading with interest as our puppy arrives next week.

How exciting @Whywhywhy1. What type of dog is it? We’ve had a great fortnight with ours but my goodness it’s hard work!!
Our pup still hasn’t cracked the toileting or the sleeping!! She can do lots of tricks though confused!
