Welcome and congrats on your new baby! Looks like he's going to be a big guy!!
As for crate training, where do you have his crate set up at night?? Near your bed?
When I brought my hav home she whimpered a bit at first, but I calmly clapped my hands to startle her and she quited right down. never a sound since. unless she is sick at night.
I don't know that this works for everyone but it sure worked for us...
Also, if his crate is close enough you can put your fingers through the wires so he can lick/sniff your hands so he KNOWS you are right there with him.
