Did he mean before bed or in the middle of the night? If it's the middle of the night technically he's right but every baby is different and if she's hungry then she's hungry. If he meant before bed that's hooey because most babies still get a bottle/nursing session right before bed up until at least 12 months.
No, not feedings during the night. The actual bottle right before bedtime. I've never heard of that, but then I googled and read that it's quite common, actually. I might just wean that feeding at 1 year and switch to water in sippy at bedtime, unless she's hungry.
I feed Emily solids around 6pm and then give her 1 final 4 or 6 oz bottle at around 7:30. She usually goes to sleep between 8:30 and 9:30 so I guess it's not really a bedtime bottle but more of an evening bottle. And then that's usually it until about 8:30 the next morning.
