From sleeping in the bed to the crate

Question:

We got Rex in early Feburary, and he's been sleeping with me and my gf at night. I think we realized our mistake and would like to gradually get him to sleep in his crate.

Currently, we recently moved from an apartment to a 2 story house. I keep him in his crate downstairs in the kitchen during the day. Should I move his crate upstairs to the bedroom? Right now he gets up at around 4am to go potty, and I'm afraid I wont hear him whine.

Also, do I just ignore him when I put him in his crate at night? I feel bad that I leave him in his crate from 7:30a to 11:30a then 12:30p to 4:30p when I get home, then again at night from 10p to 6a.

Please help :)
