Currently on 4 bottles 7oz

One in the middle of the night
11am
3pm
7-8pm

Meals 9am, 1pm, 5pm ish

Baby isn't sleeping through yet, no teeth, lunch is finger foods but not much goes in.

Can anyone advise any changes that might help improve sleep. HV advised to drop the two daytime bottles and replace with snacks but baby isn't good at finger foods so very little goes in...
My instinct is telling me we need to wake up earlier? confused

I would aim to phase out the night one first by dropping the amount gradually over a period of time. I would then give a bottle in the morning before breakfast.

Good idea to start putting less in the night bottle..

My GP told me to offer water instead of milk at night to discourage waking and it has helped a lot. Sometimes she wakes, has a bit of water and foes back to sleep immediately. We do
