My son is a year old and he still wakes up every 2 hours for a bottle, I've tried everything feeding him a big meal before bed, cereal bottle in the middle of the night, nothing works :(

Sleeping through the night is a developmental milestone. He will do it when he is ready.

Poor mama. I haven't had this problem but my 4 month old used to stay up all night until I bought a wrap sleep sack. I guess it makes her feel more secure and since I've done this, she sleep throughout the night. Only advice I really have on this!

My son is 21 months old and still doesn't sleep through the night! he will sleep about 2-4 hours in his bed and then crawl into bed with mommy and daddy when he wakes up. He's momma's big booby boy

Each kiddo is unique. He'll sleep when hes ready to unfortunately.
My oldest slept 12hrs at 8 weeks.
Second was only up once or trice in 12hrs until 18mo when she slept 7-7
Third one is a trouble maker and will be 2 in a couple days and has finally got down to 1-3 times a night.

It sounds like he has some sleep associations. A one-year-old does not need to eat every two hours; it sounds like he's waking up and rather than being able to fall back asleep independently, you and the bottle are his sleep association.

What do you do when he wakes up? Does he have a bedtime routine? If so, what is it?

This. My first thought was it's habit instead if actual hunger.

He can't self soothe. He needs the bottle and you to get back to sleep. I would look up some ways to night wean.
