15 month old having approx 30 ounces milk a day

Wondered if anyone could advise. My son is 15 months and eats three meals a day plus snacks. He won't take milk from a beaker (throws it around), but he has at least three bottles a day, morning, afternoon and bedtime (sometimes two at bedtime) and recently has been waking at night and won't settle until he has another bottle of milk.

He has always been a big boy with a big appetite (90th percentile) and was exclusively breastfed until six months (fed on demand).

So, is he drinking too much milk? Any advice as to how to remove the dependency on the bottle? Anyone been in this situation? Thanks!
