|She's just a baby girl, so it's going to take a little time and patience on your part! Remember, she has a teeny, tiny bladder!
Make lots of trips outside & praise her like crazy when she goes where she's supposed to. She can only hold her bladder for 2-3 hours, and she'll need to go potty 1st thing in the morning, after each nap, after each meal, and before bedtime (and probably during the night at first, too). She should go out every couple of hours so that she can learn that's the right place to go potty.
And don't let her convince you that she has to come out of the crate by whining. It's OK for her to be in there when you can't watch her. Take her out to potty first, then put her in her kennel with a safe toy & a blanket.
