Hi, I think your problem might be the overnight bottles. I wonder does she have a bottle to settle during the day? If so, she may be it as a way to go to sleep and that is why she needs a bottle to resettle herself overnight. Babies go through several sleep cycles overnight, as do adults, and may find it difficult to resettle themselves if they are using things like bottles or dummies to go to sleep. This is tough for bubs and parents alike. Your baby needs to learn to go to sleep on her own both day and night. Its a good idea to get rid of the bottles as they are bad for her little teeth too. Im not saying it will be easy but the way forward is to cut all bottles, she can sip water from a cup, and offer her lots of reassurance when she wakes but no milk. You may find that you need some support, professional or otherwise, but I believe your problem can be solved gently with some small changes. Hope this helps.
DD doesn't have bottles during the day and sleeps beautifully :-s
