I would suggest weaning her off the bottle. At 16 months she really should be on sippy cups or regular cups only. She is not needing the bottle in the middle of the night for nutrition it is more out of habit. There are many different ways you can transition her off the bottle. You can go cold turkey. You may have a week of a really fussy baby, but sometimes works better then other options and once they have adjusted it is like night and day. You can put only water in her bottle at night and then each night decrease the amount of water in each bottle. You can try to find a different comfort item that she can transition to as right now the bottle is the comfort item she is choosing.
