At one year of age, there is no nutritional need for your child to have a bottle in the middle of the night. In fact, you might be setting her up for issues later.
You are rewarding her for waking up in the middle of the night by giving her a bottle. The longer you continue this practice, the longer she will continue to wake up in the middle of the night.
Do you allow her to try to comfort herself back to sleep or do you go right to her with the bottle? Or, if you feel you must go to her, offer her a bottle with water in stead of the milk or formula you might offer her.
If I hear my little man in the middle of the night, I give him a few minutes to see if he will settle down before I go check on him. 9 times out of 10, he settles on his own.
