yeah , no problem, so long as they are reliable in the house . It's best if they have a signal to let you know they need to go out, . At ten months, they should be able to hold it all night, .If they don't have a way to tell you they need out, create one. Practice short safe sessions on the bed. Wait for them to do something like kiss you or a shake off and immediately take them out to potty. If I'm awake in the middle of the night, and Molly knows it, and she has to go outside, she will stand up and stare out the bedroom door and or do a shake off. This is my signal to take her out. If I'm not awake and she needs to go out ,she will come from the foot of the bed and give me kisses. Out we go. So long as they can give you a signal ,it's safe. I've had Molly in bed since eight weeks and no messes yet, touch wood. Maybe once a month she will get me up in the middle of the night. Keep their feeding on a schedule and they will be regular.
