Molly was exactly the same it maybe that she hates being away from you at night. after a few nights it should settle down. try sleeping in a old t-shirt then give it to her to sleep with. or a hot water bottle.
molly has settled down now it took a couple of weeks but she loves it now hope some of this helps

Have you also tried having the crate in your room at night? Just for a couple of weeks unti she gets used to the idea then you can gradually move it out to the room you want her to sleep in?

Often it is a problem of the dog feeling alone. wat i always do i take an old stile alarm clock (you know these things from last milenium that go tick tick tick and drive you nuts) put it in a few soks and put them with the pup. He wont feel alone and be calm.


Greetings

Johan
