Hi I rang Ngala over in WA when my 6 month old girl was waking in the middle of the randomly, up to 4 or 5 times a night. They suggested I give her a bottle as I had cut that bottle out as I thought she was old enough to not need it. However they suggested to give the bottle while still in the cot so she would not get used to being picked up in middle of night. So she now has a bottle at 7pm, sleeps until 3.30am when I give her a bottle in her cot, and she falls asleep again until 7am. I stay in the room while she has it and offer water after finishing as am worried about milk staying in her mouth and rotting her teeth. However, her other 3 bottles are at 9am, 1.30pm and 7.00pm which are just on nap time, and she wants them in her cot. Have tried for days to give her bottle else where but she is not interseted and screams blue murder. She sleeps great, and it does not bother me with the situation, but I feel like I am doing a bad thing and don't know if I am going to make things harder for me later on.
