My 6 1/2 months old baby is not sleeping through the night

I don't no what to do! My baby who is almost 7 months wakes up once a night! Everyone tells me that is great! Don't get me wrong, I am happy she only gets me up once a night and not 2 or 3 times. I just don't no what else to do. Every night we do the same routine: bath, reading time, and bottle. No matter what by 8:00 I put her in her crib (awake or asleep). Then any where from 3 to 5 she will get me up for a bottle. I would let her cry her self back to sleep but when I give her the bottle she drinks 3 to 4 oz. I have tried the ceral in the bottle before bed time and she still gets up. Is this normal?? I don't no if there is anything else I can do or try. Maybe my baby just likes to eat!! I am a first time mom and new at this!! Any help would be great!!

THis is normal for a child her age. She is not fully developed to tell you what she needs and expects you to figure that out for her. And once a night is good at this age where most babies are up and down a lot all night. But she could change to another schedule too in her sleep patterns as she grows. So do not fret if she decides to try to stay up all night later on. She is learning to adjust to the day and night and she still sleeps a lot at different times. But this is normal.
