If you want to wean off the bottle at night slowly start watering it down she will slowly grow to dislike the taste

She's 100% normal and most likely just not ready to sleep through the night yet. It WILL happen. You will all get more sleep if you just give her the bottle when she first wakes instead of making her cry for it first. You can start trying to eliminate one bottle at a time by replacing it with water, but it may or may not make the nights easier.



Do not give juice at night. That's just begging for high dental bills.

We fill her up on solid food all day to make sure she is full and she has a set sleep routine at 8pm but wakes up about 12am and 5 am for a formula bottle, we have tried cows milk and all kinds off juice she just doesnt like it at all, we let her cry it off for 20 minutes but she will cry for hours if she doesnt get her bottle ?
