Not sleeping through the night is still fairly normal at this age. Is she eating solids during the day? Is she getting formula during the day or have you started to transition her out of it?
Generally people start weaning off the formula and on to cow's milk at a year (and also off the bottle), but there isn't really a 'magic month' that it needs to happen. I know moms who have still given their child a sippy cup or two of formula up til around 2 because their children had issues eating solids.
If your child is eating solids regularly throughout the day it is fine to start weaning off the formula. As for night time.. you can try giving her water in the bottle instead of formula as waking at night 'might' be more out of habit than hunger... but it's hard to tell. My son was breastfed and wasn't night weaned until he was 2.
