My response was not written to criticise you at all - I understood that this is just a suggestion made to you, but I stand by my opinion that it's not a good idea at all, and IMO, quite a bad move to be making.
You asked for opinions, you got them. People are judging that situation, which you asked us to do. I don't think anyone was suggesting you're a horrible parent, but rather it would be a poor/selfish/etc option to take.

My DD stopped waking for night feeds at 9 weeks, and has been sleeping 7pm-7am since then (she's now 13 mths old). So she's proof that not all babies need to feed overnight. I think 6 mths is old enough to stop feeding at night. Maybe if you gradually water down her night bottles she'll drink more during the day and cut out the nights?
I think a lot of babies just get used to the routine of sucking on a boob or bottle when they wake, rather than just falling back to sleep.

Also a book that helped a lot was "12 Hours Sleep by 12 Weeks Old"...DH bought it off Amazon and it spells it all out simply (getting bubs onto a really basic feeding and sleeping schedule without controlled crying). Highly recommend it!

My baby slept through from 8 wks but at 8 mths started waking. If it was after midnight I woukd offer a bottle hut I was also concerned that it would become habit & I would have to wean night feeds which were never initially a problem. I was also given advice to water down her bottles so used 1 scoop less if formula. But you could also re introduce a dream feed at say 10 ish which should help her go through the night and then gradually bring it forward
Good luck, it's a phase I'm sure
