Oscar first night

Oscar's first night
Well Oscar first day went amazing, first time outside and in the car and to the vets and he took it all in his stride. Along with coming into a completely new environment.

I took him out at 10.50 then into crate for bedtime. He cried and whined for about 5 mins then settled down for the night. First time he woke was:
1:50am and no whining just rest fullness so I took him out, no playing or anything and he pee'd then straight in.
2nd time he woke and out for pee: 2:50am, out and pee'd straight away. (Some whining before hand but I made sure he had stopped before I took him out)
2:55am: some whining and waited for it to stop and out for a pee and straight back in.
5.20am: some whining and waited for him to stop and out for a pee.

Up at 6.40am out for pee and first meal of the day.

Do you think that he is wakening up too much during the night or is that because it's his first night in a new home. I'm unsure if maybe I should only take him out twice or maybe 3 times during the night and maybe the other time let him whine for a min and he will settle down. Every time I brought him back in during the night he whined for a minute then settled.
Also we are giving him a lot of contact as we are in and we also are trying to let him play himself which he isn't as keen on doing he just comes over to us and lies next to our feet, if anyone goes into kitchen he will have a wee moan.
He is happily eating food in his crate and we are putting him inside it when he falls alseep in the carpet and he's fine when he wakes and goes back to sleep as he knows we are there. We went out the room earlier and he cried for 2 mins then settled. Do you think this is a good start?

Any advice would be great, he is doing amazingly so far. Very proud

Yes its a great start. One thing though, when he whines to go out take him out dont wait for him to stop whining. You will avoid accidents that way.
