Ali and Cal ... good luck with Millie. Our cockapoo's name is Bailey and he's almost 5 months old, we brought him home on July 26th (he was 3 months old). Bailey is in the crate also, the first week he cried a little at night, but has been fine ever since. We only put him in the crate at night now...if we go out during the day we have him in the kitchen with "dog gates" by the doorways. I would say that Bailey is 95% house broken, took him out constantly in the beginning (no paper training), but you really have to be home and work at it. Now most of the time he'll either sit and look at us and "bark" or he goes to the back door to tell us he has to go...if we don't get to him fast enough he will make on the carpet by the back door. GOOD LUCK!! it's a lot of work, but definitely worth it.
