Hi Stacy and congratulations to you and your Mom :) Puppies can't be expected to hold their bladders thru the night until around 3 months of age. They will start holding it longer and longer as they get older but their little bladders just aren't mature enough at 8 wks old, so hang in there. Puppies do sleep a lot, just like human babies. Play for 15 minutes nap for an hour. Whenever you can't watch Coal, put him in his crate so he doesn't have an accident but don't leave him in there for hours at a time. You want his crate to be a happy place. Start by leaving the crate door open and letting him explore it on his own and get use to it.

I hope everyone is feeling better, it's an awful time of year to be sick. Have a Merry Christmas and give Coal a big hug :wink:
