Sleeping @ night

My daughter is now 4.5, and from about 2- 3 months old she was falling asleep by 8 pm and waking up at 4 am for feeding and sleeping till about 6:30 which was fine. However, now she has started waking up earlier, at around 2 am, and then again at 5:30. Before at least I would be able to get a good chunk of about 6 hours of sleep but now its chopped up and I am so tired. We have a routing in place for her that has not changed. Every night at around 6:30 pm we bathe, eat and then she usually falls asleep and if not she hangs out in her swing while we have dinner and when i see her getting sleepy she goes to her crib and falls asleep. Ive tried already feeding her like at 10 pm so her tummy is full but she still wakes up and drinks a whole 6 oz bottle at around 2 am. What can i do? Can i let her cry it out or because she is drinking her whole bottle, is she really hungry and should i just continue to feed her at night for a bit longer?

Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

If you are formula feeding you could try Enfamil Restfull for bedtime feeding. It has worked wonders for me. It is a bit more thicker than regular formula but it gets digested slower so their tummies remain full all night and babies don't wake up hungry in the middle of the night

Hello Jeni have you tried given her cereal in her bottle? About a tsp or two to her milk?
