Instead of giving her milk in the bottle give her water. Some people say that they get bored of the water and will stop waking up. My son woke up until he was 11 months old I thought for a bottle but it was because he was Loosing his dummy. Since I got him a dummy blanket he has slept through nearly every night

At 10mnths she no longer NEEDS a bottle at night its obviously just a comfort and/or habit for her. Try doing other things for her when she wakes up...rock her...read her a book...offer a paci if she takes one....some people would say to let her cry it out..Im not sure how you feel about that but all the doctors I have talked to about it say at that age crying it out is a good option. They say they need to learn how to soothe and comfort themselves. I wish you luck!! Hope this helped a little

she might not be getiing full . have you tried introducing 1 solid meal aday in with bottles it might just fill her up a little bit. it helped with my daughter when she was that age .

i have heard to try the water if you dont think she is hungry, but if you think she genuinely is then try putting some crushed biscuits into her milk it will keep her fuller for longer (i have heard people using milo, but i dont think they really need it, just go with buiscuits) good luck!

Nothing you can do really. If she wants a bottle she wants a bottle. Try feeding her a light snack before bed and see how that works out for you.
