Have you tried persevering with a dummy? Also swaddling can help at this age.

Keep all the lights low, don't change her unless dirty and don't engage too much. I don't mean ignore her but try to keep things as quiet and sleepy as possible.

Is she happy or crying after her bottle. If the former then putting her down in her crib awake post-bottle is absolutely fine.

We have a night light for night feeds and she has the bottle winds falls asleep then I put her down 10 mins later wide awake crying.. We have a dummy but she just doesn't want it at that time I'm not sure why she won't go back off. Haven't tried swaddling may have a go at that tonight
