I think it's ok but make sure to only put water in it , milk or juice could ruin your baby's teeth but start soon to try and wean your baby off make sure your baby is well fed before bed and slowly take the bottle away a night. I had this problem with my frist child it took about a month to wean him and some times I had to give him something else to hold ot fall asleep with.

If it is possible, try to wean to a sippy cup or a covered container with a straw. The cup stays on a night table. My son is 6 and sometimes is thirsty at night. I keep a covered container of water on his nighttable. He knows he can have a drink and put it back there. My son use to have a sippy cup of milk before bed when we read to him, but once it was bedtime the drink was gone.
