Dropping bottles

little girl is 10 months in a week or so, she dropped her second bottle (late morning), at around 7ish months. For the past 3 months she's really not fussed on her bedtime one, taking 2-3oz at 6:30pm. Should I reduce her afternoon 2:30-3pm one and offer fruit etc instead in hopes she's take her bedtime one more? She does love her afternoon one though and downs it, and then has tea about 4:30. I would presume the bedtime bottle is more important to continue with rather than the afternoon as she's getting nearer 1. I just don't want to take away a bottle she takes

Does she sleep OK despite having a smaller bedtime bottle? If so, I'd leave things as they are. There's no law to say they need a bedtime bottle at all.

I read that they drop the nighttime one first which surprised me but my dd dropped it about 10months and only has one bottle a day and that the 7am. She's been on one bottle since 10months but I make sure she has lots CB of diary and her vitamins as she won't drink normal milk.. but she loves food! Once I'd introduced her to food she literally threw the bottle at me!!

Typo as I've no idea what CB is??
