Changing routines- baby

Our 1 year old havanese is about to get a little brother soon. He's such a momma's boy and very scheduled with his bedtime and morning routine. I'm worried about how he will do when the baby comes home. He's used to sleeping in an ex-pen downstairs and baby will be sleeping in our room. Any advice as to when baby wakes up during the night and our little Chance wakes up because of the crying and then wants to go out... I want to allow him to him to nap in our room when baby and I nap, but not at night because of all the waking up. So far, he tends to whine if he's on the floor and I'm in bed. He's only been on our bed a handful of times and I would like to keep it that way.

hi and congrats ahead for the arrival of your new baby. You should be fine leaving him in his xpen overnight. Sounds like he can wait overnight now. Do allow him access to your bedroom as before. The biggest goal with introducing a new baby is that whenever the dog is in the presence of the baby , good things happen. Here is a great resource
