They probably won't be crying to go to the washroom at 8 weeks.
Sure they will be!
Hans was 10 lbs-- small enough to be in a little crate on my night stand
I used a couple sizes of crates, starting with a medium size.
He whined a couple of times each night for a week or two, I took him out, he did his business, then he was put right back in his crate, lights out, night-night.
Otherwise, not a peep out of him.
I would not put a blanket in there, the pup could chew it and swallow pieces.
