My daughter is 18 months old, goes to sleep usually by 7pm and has a bottle of milk, and then we give her one at about 10:15 in her sleep just before we go to bed, but she drinks only 150 mls at that time.
but she wakes up once at night for another bottle, we have tried replacing the bottle with a sippy cup of water, but she wont take it.
If we don't give her milk when she keeps awake, she will not sleep and stay up, but once she is awake she wont sleep till a couple of hours , but in the meantime since we are both working we give up and give her a bottle and try and put her to bed....
Can anyone please suggest what should i do from her waking up for a bottle at night.

During the day she should be doing milk from a sippy. At her age she only needs 3 glasses of milk a day. She does not need milk at night. It has become habit, so you will have to change the habit.

Throw all the bottles out. And why are you waking her to drink a bottle?! At 18 months she should no longer be taking bottles and should be sleeping through the night.
