When to drop the last night feed?

Hello. My LG is 7months now. I was just wondering about her bottles (formula fed) She doesn't get up until 9-9:30am and she'll have a bottle every 4hrs of 7oz so 4 bottles and her last bottle will be 9-9:30pm. Recently she's been falling asleep around 8 and sometimes its a struggle to wake her for her last bottle and when she does have it she will then stay awake until late as she gets a burst of energy. She's having one meal a day mainly between 2-6pm and snacks in the day as she can have long naps so don't always get big meals in. But I was just wondering if I should just drop her last bottle? I'm worried if I do she might lose weight and not get enough nutrition from her bottle. Thank you x

I'd let it happen naturally. Slowly food will take over from milk. If she has to be woken for last bottle try just leaving her & see how she goes. Maybe see if she will take an extra oz per bottle during the day just to ensure she's getting enough if it worries you. Routines and naps usually adapt to the changes so just go with the flow & all will be fine x

I dont think i would drop it yet. Its usually the last one to go. My LO is 10 months and since about 7 months ive been doing 7am, 4pm and 7pm he has about 4 or 5oz

My LG is nearly 2 and she still has an evening bottle before bed. Maybe you could shuffle the timings around?
