he does not need this much milk at 2 years old (did you mean 2 months?) if he is 2 yrs old I would slowly eliminate the night feeds and introduce 2-3 milk servings during the day.

If you meant 2 months just try to go further in between night feeds even if you have to let him cry a bit and dont take them all away cold turkey but just try to space them so he will want more in the day. don't run to him every second, see if he can get himself to sleep without a bottle. I do not recommend letting him go all night without a feed but there is no need for 5 bottles! try for the 10-2-6 feeding schedule to try and cut it down to 3 bottles and in a couple months try eliminating the 2 am feed.
