A: Babies rarely need nighttime feedings after 6 months. It’s important to understand that all little ones naturally awaken during the night, but I suspect that your little one is drinking from a bottle at bedtime because it's helping her fall asleep. Therefore, make sure that your daughter is falling asleep independently at bedtime. If you are feeding her at bedtime, gradually reduce her a bottle by an ounce per night. Once you stop giving her a bottle at bedtime, make sure that she is put to bed awake so she can self-soothe to sleep. You can do the same thing when she wakes up during the middle of the night. With a bit of patience and persistence, she’ll start sleeping through the entire night.
