My appologies, but what is a Kong? and does the peanut butter make them sleep?
A Kong is a rubber dog toy, usually with a hole in it, that can be stuffed with things to keep a dog busy. Like this: KONG Pet Toys - Legendary Strength, Quality, and Performance

The peanut butter doesn't make the puppy sleep, but it gives the puppy something to do so that it's distracted, and if it keep at it long enough, then yes, a puppy will sleep after working at a kong for a while.

sorry, just another question. If we were to carry out the "every 2 hours" potty rule, what if he was still crying? we have been trying to ignore his crying and won't go to him unless we hear a gap of silence. will letting him out every 2 hours interfere with this?

thanks for everyone's input. we truly appreciate it.

The idea is that if you let him out often enough - every two hours - you'll be letting him potty before he has the chance to start crying. If he's crying before the two hours, then you will need to let him out more often, maybe every 1 1/2 hours.
