Dropping a bottle?

DS is 9 months old, and currently has 3 decent meals a day, plus fruit and a yoghurt to follow (yoghurt only once per day) He has a good appetite and eats well. However, we are still pretty much on 4 bottles a day. Morning, mid morn, mid afternoon and bedtime.

We tried dropping his milk a while ago and it worked well for a while but it coincided with waking up more during the night (previously q great sleeper). He's gone through a lot of changes recently -- learning to crawl, stand and almost cruising, first tooth erupting, and seperation anxiety as I returned to work after maternity leave. He seemed to lose his appetite, so I upped his milk again. Things have settled somewhat but he's a very busy boy and loves his milk. I think it's a bit of comfort for him.

Should I try dropping his milk again? There's so much conflicting advice. My HV said a while ago to try dropping it and slowly introduce a snack so we did but then there was a lot going on for him. Plus most babies at his age, seemed to be only on 2 or 3 bottles.

Any advice?

At 9 months dd was still on mostly
Morning , mid morning , mid afternoon and bedtime bottles .
At about 11 months she went to morning , after lunch and bedtime .
Then she basically dropped all bottles when we switched to cows milk at 12 months
