My 18 months also wakes up in night 3-4 times..but i don't think that's for milk..you giving him milk is just soothing him..he may not really need it.
These days i m just making sure that i feel his stomach well before 7 PM with 6 oz of milk and brushing teeth... by 8 .15-8.30 he is in sleep. Sometimes by 11pm he will wake up..i just take him out and put him next to me.. he gets calm. he might wake up again at 2-3 am..but i just take him in my arms and he goes quiet and sleeps though 6.30 am next morning. i did little research and i found that at this age kids do that as they get new vision of their individuality. they know that they are different human being and wants to show you that they the one to control you and not vice varsa.
All the best.
